Book Sales on Amazon are Picking Up

My third book in a week just sold off of Amazon’s marketplace. I can’t believe I am able to sell these books this way. It is great knowing that someone is going to get use out of these great quilting books that I never had the time or inclination to use. The money for these books is going into the boat fund.

Just got back from helping mom put up the Christmas tree. It came from their new property. It looked pretty sparse when she and David set it up, however after we finished decorating it it looks pretty good. Kinda reminds me of the Charlie Brown Christmas story.

Scott and I are going to meet dad tomorrow for dancing at Red River club in Dallas. It sounds like a nice place, but I would prefer to go to the Czech club on military parkway which is a non-smoking facility that has Czech music and country dancing too.

Preparing for Christmas and the New Year

It sure took a long time to get all that trailer/storage shed stuff sorted out. All of mom’s storage is cleaned out and the trailer is taking shape as a mini sewing room and bead supply warehouse for Pieces of the Past. The trailer looks and functions great now. I put shelving in the back for the bead bins and put a table in the front part for my sewing machine.

I was able to sew all the nieces and nephews Christmas presents within the last two weeks and I think the setup will work very well. Scott and I delivered dad’s gifts to him on Saturday night and I just have a few left to make. We have to make candles for a candle exchange that we are having at mom’s and mom broke her eyeglass lanyard today so I think I will try to make her a beaded one for Christmas.

This week has been a very busy one indeed. I started putting my quilting books on’s marketplace store. Two of the books sold within three days of their listings for a total of $20. This is going to be a great way for me to clean out my stash of quilting books without giving them away.

Although I don’t make new year’s resolutions, I do have a few things I want to accomplish in 2005.

  1. I want to input all the genealogy information that Gan-Gan left behind into the computer program I have.
  2. I want to create a blog for the bus progress starting with pictures from when we purchased it to the current state it is in.
  3. Learn to knit socks well.
