Taking the Plunge!

I've taken the plunge and listed some of my crafts for sale on Folksy!! Although I set up the 'shop' ages ago it's taken me a while to get around to actually listing any products. There are only a few items there (it seems to take me ages to list one item - perhaps I'm putting too much information, but I get a bit carried away) so I'm not going to publicise much until I get it a bit more established. I'll only be selling to the UK, at first, too, because I haven't yet looked into postage issues for further afield.

I recently joined a new stitching group that meets in the bar of a local hotel. It was set up via Facebook a couple of weeks ago and is proving quite popular. Needing something to take along, I grabbed a copy of Craftseller with a pattern for crocheted hearts in it, and started on these (above). I was also able to help someone who was having trouble with her crochet. Others were helped out with various problems and some admitted that they'd have given up at the first hurdle if they'd been at home alone. So the group has already proved it's usefulness, with the added bonus of meeting new people with similar interests.

My son's van could do with a good clean! Someone decided to add this 'artwork' while it was parked outside the gym. He was hoping they'd finish it the next time he parked there but, instead, something else was added that I'm not going to show you!

This little chap, and a friend, were making so much noise outside the living room window I knew they were angling to have a photo taken. Trouble is, they were also darting about so much that I couldn't get them both together.

Bye for now

we have a fortnightly craft group and as you say, we help one another with different projects. Some are great knitters and some quilters and stitchers.
Good luck with your online shop!

I LOVE that bird picture...all those colorful branches going in a variety of directions and the little birdy is not one I have ever seen before. Great picture!
