The one with the finished quilts
We finally had some nice light to photograph the quilts I finished up for last weekend's market. These three were all cranked out in the span of just four weeks leading up to the market. Not bad when you consider they are all quilted by hand and each one takes hours upon hours to complete. By the end, I had completely worn a hole in my middle finger where I push the needle through. My other fingers are completely calloused. Wouldn't have it any other way.
Sadly, none of these sold at the market, so I will be listing them in the shop later this month. I'm just sorting out postal costs before loading up the shop. It's a little disheartening to see how expensive international shipping is here - worse than Canada. The shipping costs on some of my smaller items is more than the item itself. The good news is that shipping within New Zealand appears to be far more reasonable. Hopefully Kiwis like what I have to sell!
