Website is online

Well, now that I have my website online, I guess I need to keep up with this blog -- more chance that someone will actually read it!

We've been really busy getting ready for the tourist season on Tybee Island. My big project in February was making window treatments for Lighthouse Pizza, part of their renovation and remodeling in the dining room. I found a great fabric -- with lighthouses on it, naturally -- and combined it with yards and yards of red and deep blue Kona cotton. It was a great project, but I'm glad to get back to my regularly scheduled sewing.

Another project was getting the retail area set up in the restaurant. It was a great thrill to see all my bags and other items hanging on the racks there.

My mini-quilt fabric postcards have turned out to be popular -- not too surprising, since people tend to buy postcards when they are on vacation. I've been having a great time making them, since there are so many motifs and ways to embellish them. The lighthouses are fun, but I have a particular fondness for the sea turtles, too.

This weekend I tried out a couple of new items, picture frames and coasters. The coasters are woven top kind, that you can put the foot of a wine glass in. Lots of fun to make, since you can put together interesting color combinations.

We're enjoying beautiful weather here, with the dogwoods and azaleas still blooming. We're getting ready, and hoping the weather will hold, for the Tour de Georgia, which starts April 21 on Tybee Island. The first day they will travel through Savannah and end up in Statesboro. We're looking forward to an exciting event.

Now, back to sewing...
