Phew, I nearly went a month without updating my lovely little blog, but I'm here now so all is well :)
I met up with Liz, from college for the first time in AGES and ages - she's still living in Cork so we met up 'half-way' in Killarney for the day last weekend.
Of course you can't have a trip to Killarney without going to the wool shop...so here's what I picked up!!
here and hopefully it will sell...
I really like making those frilly scarves so I made a green one from King Cole Mirage and will make some other ones in the future...hopefully there's a market for them (??)
I like them but Peter just doesn't ''get'' them at all...
So far this month I've sold four 'lots' of the beach pebbles :) I never
really thought that they would take off so well but I think they are
pretty unusual and I only select the prettiest ones I can find (or the
most unusual ones) - I think I have about 14-15 of them listed in my
shop and have a few more 'in reserve' that I will list when some of the
other ones sell --- I can't see the point in filling my whole shop with
them. I'm really hoping that they will sell very well coming up to
Christmas as they would be ideal ''stocking fillers'' (at least I think
I'm up to 104 listings in my Etsy shop now, which I'm really happy with as I've had a few sales - the other day someone in Ohio bought a pair of my shell-edged wrist warmers AND bought the pattern too!!
You really need to click on the photos to see them all properly - I'm so happy with how they turned out -- I love Moo so much!!! I really think they make the very best business cards etc, and I love how much you can personalise the cards.
They have lots of different designs and they are really great - very good quality -- I wasn't sure about ordering one over the internet rather than just picking one up in a shop but we are totally satisfied :) It's nice to have something so quirky and of course Peter loves spiders!!
