NEW Crafty Sewing Etsy Shop

Update --Available at www.craftysewing.com.
No longer in Esty shop --- other items in shop.

Just click on the title of the blog and it will take you directly to my shop or http://www.etsy.com/shop/CraftySewing

I will be adding new crafty creations all the time. Listed my Mini Comfort Quilts first and the NEW Crazee Patch (ONE OF A KIND) Mini Comfort Quilts.

All items will be one of a kind -- NO duplicates!

The Story.......The Mini Comfort Quilts are special to me, so they had to be first.....

A quilting friend of mine showed me how to make them several years ago and I have been making them ever since... Made hundreds of them -- never two alike -- some similar, but not identical. I get orders from churches and from individuals who just want to share the love with a friend who needs comforting.

I send them to my friends in need with get well cards and with sympathy cards. When my mother in law died I gave one to my father in law. I found out later when he died he had kept it on his dresser with the little printed message that I had pinned to it. Maybe it was comforting to know I was thinking of him and saying a prayer for him. We can't take away their pain, but maybe we can let them know we care...
