I gave myself a snow day today and just sewed. I took time off to eat and take Heidi for a walk but the rest of the time I stayed at the machine. I finished making the top and then the quilting on the wall hanging I have been working on. I got the binding sewn on just before supper and have started the hand sewing part. All in all, I have spent about 6 hours sewing. I figure there has to have been well over 20 hours in designing and making the top. That comes to 26 hours-minimum. If I pay myself ten dollars an hour which is less than minimum wage the cost of the wall hanging is $260.00 before I even add in the fabric, batting and thread. Overhead costs such as heat, hydro, property taxes etc. would bring the value of this one little wall hanging to somewhere just under $400.00
Amazing! If I am fortunate, I will get about 1/3 of that cost.
Good thing I really like quilting.
