Tea Time

Last night I added this item to my Etsy shop.  Less than two hours later, IT. WAS. SOLD!  Woohoo!!!  My first sale and I didn’t really expect to sell anything.  I’m very excited.

Thanks for stopping by…

Etsy relisted

When I left for Florida in January, I put my Etsy shop on vacation as well.  I have returned to Maine, although it was waaaaay too soon.  Florida was wonderful and we are looking forward to returning after the holidays.

Tonight I finally got my items relisted in my Etsy shop.  Please stop by and check them out.  There is free shipping on the lap quilt if purchased before the end of April.  I have some other items ready but have not had the time to get them in the shop.  Soon, I hope.

Thanks for stopping by…

Another Etsy item

Today I managed to get another item listed in my Etsy shop, two coffee cozys.

They are sold separately but are cheaper if purchased together.

I still haven’t had time to figure out the button.  Since I retired and work more than before I retired, I have considerable admiration for those of you who work, raise a family, cook, clean and still have time to sew and create.  Maybe some day…

If you have time, come and visit my Etsy shop…http://www.etsy.com/shop/BeeWitchinStitchin

The shop is open

Finally, after months of procrastinating, my Etsy shop is open with one item.  It took forever because I wanted to develop a banner but…that hasn’t happened yet.  So, I just proceeded to put one foot in front of the other, follow the directions and get something listed.  Once I figure out how to get a button in the sidebar, I’ll get that done.

For now, please come visit me…BeeWitchinStitchin at Etsy.  And be sure to let me know you came to visit.

Thanks for stopping by…

Last night while searching the internet I came across two blogs that both support and encourage creativity and working “outside the box”.  Heaven knows that I need a big, giant push in that direction.  I know there is creativity in me but I find it hard to take that first step away from patterns and directions and someone else’s vision.  I’m hoping that by joining these two groups I can move in that direction.

First there is “Today’s Title is…”  and you can check out the welcoming details here.  It is hosted by Helen Suzanne and she will post a new title every weekend.  The idea is to post whatever comes into your mind first referencing the title.

This weekend’s title is suspended. At first I thought it had to be an item made to represent the word but when I read the details again, that is not the case.  It is just the first thing you think of and can be represented any way that works.  Here is my first post to “Today’s Title is…”

This is a glass and metal piece depicting the universe.  It was given to me by my best friend, Su a few years ago.  It hands from the ceiling by clear fishing line and appears to be suspended in midair.

The next group is Project Improv. It is hosted by Jacquie and can be found on her blog…Tallgrass Praire Studio. The intent is to promote and support quilting outside the lines; to be improvisational; to find your own voice.  She also asks that each new participant put together a quilt block for charity using one of three colorways.  Those are due by April 1 so that should get me moving.  This is something I want to do but have found it difficult to “just do it”.  I’m excited to get started and will keep updates on the blog.

In quilting news, I have actually made some progress on the FM quilt.  I attempted to post these photos the other day but was having lots of trouble so saved them for today.

To date I have completed four large blocks with no further sewing planned until Tuesday.  It is going together very quickly (when I actually sew).  I’m also excited to start on Ella’s coordinating quilt which will be my own design.  Stay tuned…

One more thing…I opened an Etsy store today.  There isn’t anything in it yet but there will be at some point.  I wanted to have the same name as the blog: BeeWitchinStitchin so decided to go ahead and sign up.  Once I have something to sell I’ll provide a link.  In the meantime, check out Etsy.com for lots of handmade gifts.

That’s all for now.  Bill and I are picking Trevor up in Portland this morning and he will visit with us until Monday when we take him back to his mom.  Wendy is visiting with Greg, Vanessa and Ella this weekend.  More snow today, up to 12″.  Oh joy!!!
