Good Idea . . . Or Bad?

I've just started another blog. Made my first post today.

As I explain on the new blog (Mama Pea Quilts), for some time I've wanted to create an online market for my hand made baby quilts. In conjunction with that, blogging about my quilting activities seemed a logical thing to do so . . . ta-dah! Mama Pea Quilts made its debut today.

But, yikes, can I keep up with two blogs? Heck, can I keep up with the quilting when the quilts start to sell? (Hmm, actually selling the quilts . . . well now. Wouldn't that be a pleasant happenstance!)

I guess I'll find out the demands of both new endeavors soon enough. In all seriousness, both selling my baby quilts online and writing a quilting blog is something I look forward to very much and have entered into with a lot of enthusiasm.

Even if you're not a quilter, the blog may hold some interest for you. (Maybe it will convince you to BECOME a quilter!) Or perhaps someday you might be in the market for a hand made baby quilt for your own wee one or grandbaby or to give as a gift.

When you have the time, I'd love it if you'd take a short side trip over to Mama Pea Quilts . . . and be sure to share your comments with me.

This new venture of mine? I think it's a GOOD idea and I'm rarin' to go!


  1. Congratulations on the new blog! I will have to check it out. Looks like you have plenty to keep you busy when winter hits!

  2. Wow! Impressive efforts, MamaPea! One of these years (when I'm NOT working on the house!) I'll have to get pictures of all my Wise Tiny Creatures up on a blog of their own, but for now I'm going to sit back and watch and learn!

  3. Erin - Thanks, Erin. I've never had trouble finding things to do in the winter time. Perhaps this will give me an excuse to spend more time in my quilt studio . . . something I never seem to get enough of!

  4. MaineCelt - Thanks so much!

    I'd love you to do a post of pictures of all your Wise Tiny Creatures. Just to whet our appetites for when you're in a place and time to start marketing them. How 'bout it? Huh, huh?

  5. MaineCelt (AND anyone else), a teensy bit of shameless self-advertising, if I may . . . .

    Obviously, you know how to create a successful blog already, but if you DO want to explore a separate one for these Wise Tiny Creatures I've heard so much about (!) but don't have the time . . . Chicken Mama's Graphic & Web Design would be more than happy to do it for you! ;)

  6. Congratulations on your new blog -- and I think it's a GREAT idea! Count me in as one of your loyal followers. I've always wanted to learn to quilt and maybe your blog will help me get one step closer :) BTW -- your work is truly beautiful...

  7. Fiona - Thank you, m'dear, for your kind words and encouragement. Any time you decide to start quilting, know I'm always available to help in any way I can. You could even give me ideas for tutorials on my quilting blog!
