More Fun Framed Mini Quilts and a Sale!

I painted more frames in reds and blues so I could frame up some more mini quilts for my etsy shop. They are each 5" x 7" when framed. These are just so much fun and I love the way they look framed. I might have to frame up all my work that I have hanging in my hallway. I really can't afford professional framing at this point. I will have to settle for the pile of frames I bought at IKEA this weekend and paint them all myself. I actually try to avoid anything expensive at this point in our family life. The kids are more important than any "thing," but I would hate to put that to the test if they broke something valueable. I don't like to live with a disposable mindset, but kids will be kids and we have a lot of them in a small space. For now I will pick my battles.
I also made my first sale on Etsy! I am so excited. I even managed to be on top of things and mailed it out yesterday. Kate North bought my "Laugh" as a birthday gift for her friend Lana, a big purple fan. A girl after my own heart. Thank You!

Hi NIkki!

These are soooo cute. Not surprised at your sale. Your work is awesome. Guess I should expect that now that you've hit the "big time!"
