You only regret what you don't do

A holiday and a tiresome cold later I’m now in the middle of getting my first items up on the shelf in my Etsy shop. Finally I might add! Phu, all I have to do now is calculate the prices and write good descriptions, easier said than done though as many of you probably know. Doing all this administrative work has really got my hands itching for trying out some new ideas. I’m so much more comfortable doing the practical work and if I could leave the rest to someone else I would without a second thought.

Anyhow, these new ideas of mine include using my sketchbooks for some fancy/weird/funky/arty/odd embroidery on maybe printed fabrics. What exactly they will end up like I don’t know yet. I also want to try something with pom-poms, do some crochet and a little painting. I should tidy up a bit and finish of some UFO’s too. The piles in my craft corner are shouting nasty threats about strikes and collapses. Ever heard those threats yourself?

Busy Summer

I can’t believe its August already! I’ve had some really busy weeks lately meeting up with friends, volunteering, visits and James taking some holiday. Truth to be told he’s off again next week so on Friday we leave for the countryside and James’ dad’s house. I’m looking forward to the clean air and the luxury of a garden to roam in. I’ve packed some UFO’s to go with me and some other bits and pieces to keep me busy.
Apart from updating my Etsy shop policies (woho finally) I’ve been finishing off projects. There is still some big ones with little left to do and a pile of smaller ones half finished. Since I’ll be gone for a week and not update much here head over here for some steady updates. I’m still finding my footing with this blog, planning and brainstorming ideas, so be patient with me. I will be back before you know it...
