1. Listen to my inner soul when it speaks to me
2.Get back to reading - used to read a book a week and I've missed it
3. Stop being so nervous and open up a store on Etsy
Sounds pretty simple uh... well let's see if I can keep to my promises.
I recently got back into making more needle books. After the Christmas Art Festival I received a lot of requests for the ones that didn't sell and can now proudly say they are all gone and am working on a few more that were ordered. Once these are done I will get started on making some in a couple different styles for my Etsy store. When I finally have at least 12 items, I plan on opening the door to this new adventure.
This needle book was made for my friend Linda. She commissioned me to make her one and also her friend Nancy. Unfortunately, either Santa decided to keep it for himself or it got lost in the never never land of the Post Office as Nancy never received hers. Today I completed a replacement for Nancy and will mail it to her tomorrow - confirmation and insured this time!
I have a few more than I need to finish up and get int he mail and then I can can begin playing with some new styles and even new colors. I have got to start stretching myself and play with more colors than just blue.... just can't help it - love it! This is one that I have been working on little by little - not sure how much more I will CQ on it before I actually sew it into a sewing case. Aren't you proud - I actually threw in some purple!
