Meet Andrea Baker

Hello, thank you for visiting me today. My name is Andrea. I enjoy sewing and crafting. I've been sewing now for a few years and I rather enjoy it. I have 2 beautiful girls (14 yrs and 4 yrs). I also have a very supportive husband who is a professional magician.
Most of my time is taken up by several things, my children, my husband, and my obsession with sewing and creating!!

Andrea has two shops...her sewn items can be found HERE, and her photography site can be found HERE!

Winner of "The Best Thing I Made This Year"

is me! :)

I feel so silly blogging about myself...but this is my entry to the contest, and my reason WHY I thought it was the best thing I made.

This Gray Ribbon Brain Cancer Awareness Lap Quilt is my proudest shop-related sewing item this year! I was very nervous about making a quilt to sell, as I had only done ones for me and my family in the past....and this one sold almost as soon as it was went to a woman to give to her Mother in Law, who had just recently lost her brother to Brain Cancer, and the customer told me it would "warm those who are remembering a loved one".....It brought tears to my eyes....and the best part was that the fabrics themselves are from a Charity line of fabrics, so the money I spent to purchase them went to Cancer Research, then the profit I made off of it was donated to the American Brain Tumor Association...double charity donations! I can't help but smile when I see this quilt! And I completely plan to make more :)

My Shop is on vacation mode still, but once its back up and running you can click HERE to find me!
