New work

I finally found a little time this morning to get a few items finished so I can list them. It's hard to get anything done with deer hunters popping in and out but my mighty hunters are finally in the woods instead of on my couch. Here are a few pics of what I got done. The first one is a Bethlehem quilt block pattern with a Merry Christmas sticker on the front that I put into a card.

This one is a Prairie Schooler Santa stepping into a chimney that I placed into a card also. I think they both turned out rather well. Hope any interested buyers think so as well.

Working on a cute cat pattern for the holidays and hope to have it done today. Guess I better go stitch.

Happy crafting everyone!

Sales again

I sure haven't managed to get much stitched in the past week. Hubby has been off work since Friday for deer season and my house has been filled with hunters. I spend a lot of time cooking warm meals for the cold hunters. We are fortunate enough to own 50 acres in mid-Missouri and that allows my husband and his dad to hunt here instead of packing up for deer camp. No deer yet. They are just watching them, waiting for that big brute of a buck to come along.

I did have 4 sales on e-bay over the weekend so my perseverance has paid off. Hope all you crafters are getting sales as well.

Stay warm and dry!

I think I lost my mojo!

I was doing better with sales until this past week. Crashed and burned with no sales. My word of the month for October was perseverance so that's what I'll do. Sure hope you all are having tons of sales during this pre Christmas time. I'm sticking with it and have listed a couple of things on ebay and in my etsy shop.

Hope this week is kinder to me and for all of you.

Ebay listings for this week, November 1 - 7.

I've got 7 items listed on ebay this week. Check them out. I stitched a really cute reindeer peeking out from behind a Christmas tree with seed beads on it. Also stitched a funky, retro tree with buttons as the ornaments.

Indian Summer

We are finally getting our Indian summer here in the midwest. After at least 12 inches of rain in October, November started out warmer and thankfully drier. Now I'm trying to play catch up with the 7 acres of leaves now covering our yard. It's a never ending job usually but this year all the leaves fell over night.

Loving this weather though. 70's today and sunny. Happy crafting everyone!
