I have exciting news to share w/you! I recently got invited to be a vendor at a local shop that's expanding, so have been really busy trying to make 'shop models' to sell patterns, kits & supplies for mostly wool applique, cross stitch and even a few handmade items, etc.
All this, in addition to keeping my Etsy shop going, I will be able to expand into teaching some classes on wool applique, as well as maybe forming a Wooly/Stitching Club down the road.
So I'm very excited, but my mind is whirling in constant crafty motion!
Since my space will be limited at first(w/hopes to expand later on), I am trying to make things that will fit in a small space, but will give customers a view of what the patterns/kits look like made up.
I love the way the sequins catch the light on the star pillows. I am thinking about adding the silver tinsel around the edges since I included it in the kit.
Here's a couple of ways the kits are packaged. I wanted to make it feel like they are buying a 'gift', and I put an extra goodie or two in there as well. (if anyone in blogland is interested in anything, just post a comment on here and it will go straight to my email box first).
This package is for the bigger kits and I have all different sizes of these cute bags.
I wanted to leave you w/a few pics of our sweet doggie ~ BJ. He's a full-blooded Beagle who is 7 and totally spoiled. I think he may even be counting sheep! LOL (look at the sheet that's covering him)! ha
I couldn't get him to look up at me, but he loves hanging out w/me in the C.R. (craft room)
I'm a fun-loving Christian gal who loves the Lord w/all my heart. I'm so thankful for the wonderful family he gave me, including an adorable chubby Beagle doggie named BJ.
I love to decorate in the country primitive style decor. Cross stitch has always been my old passion, but now WOOL applique/quilting are my newest passions. (I am totally addicted to fabric, threads and patterns), sewing, baking/cooking, trying NEW recipes and reading. Plus I'm crazy about anything gingerbread and now penguins!! In other words ~ I LOVE to create!
So glad you stopped by! Come back soon!
