All I want for Christmas is to help some animals have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday season. As such, I am asking that my followers and friends do something small for me. I have donated a quilt to All Things Pawssible in Charlottesville, Virginia to be raffled off to raise money for the local shelters here in town. $5.00 buys you three tickets and a chance to win this gorgeous quilt:
More then anything, it would give many animals the chance at getting a Christmas stocking or even their forever home which they all deserve. Everyone that contacts me with their $5.00 donation will get their pick at two fat quarters from my stash of fabric. Who can beat that? A chance at a free quilt AND free fabric? My Christmas wish is for puppies, like Willie pictured above, to find their forever home and have a very happy life. Please consider helping me with this. Let's see how much money we can raise by Sunday! (12/15/13) You can call All Things Pawssible and make a donation over the phone (434-972-7297) or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org! If you do donate, please let me know asap so I can get your fabric to you!

They're so pretty. I want to just enjoy them whole forever! But
I would probably use them for a lap quilt I'm thinking about making. I like you

Well Sarah, you will be able to enjoy them for as long as you would like! :) Please email me at email@example.com with your information so I can get them to you asap! And for everyone else who didn't win, I have a little something special for you too! Send me an email and let me know you commented! :)
Have you ever taken a moment to stop and "smell the roses," as some would say? As I was feeling a bit overwhelmed with the amount of orders coming in for Christmas gifts, I had to sit myself down and take a moment to breathe. Why am I getting stressed out over getting orders in? I should be thankful for the opportunity to work with new clients and share my love of quilting with them. So, today, I am thankful for the chance to work with my new clients, to make them a piece of art that they can have for a lifetime and love. How wonderful is that?

Do you ever feel like this when you are trying to get several projects finished? Everything seems to pile up at once and you can barely find time to finish even one project? Where do you find the strength (and time) to get everything accomplished? We find ourselves struggling with these questions on a daily basis. The problem with being in such a demanding field is finding a balance between not having enough work and taking on too many projects. Where do you draw that line? I have a hard time telling a prospective client that I just cannot handle any more work right now, because I know I am letting them down, but then again, I am making it much better for the clients I already have because their quilts will have all of the attention and love that they need to be finished not only on time, but with all of my attention. I hope, as our business continues to grow, that I will be able to distinguish between the two and find a happy medium. I love what I do and hopefully everyone around us will know that and continue to make our business a success.
