I still must get around to listing those purple crocodile stitch wristers - writing the listings and taking photos of the items is something I really don't enjoy half as much as actually making the items themselves! The cotton bath mitt is to replace a similar one that just sold (to the lovely Mary Ruth in America), and I've sold some scrubbies just recently too so have remade and relisted them too.
Talking about sales in my Etsy shop, I can't quite believe it but I am not just SEVEN sales away from my 600th! Can you believe it? My very first sale was on the 11th July, 2010 - if you look at my profile on Etsy it says that I opened my shop there in March that year, but it wasn't til the end of June/start of July that I actually started to list items on there -- my first ever sale was a pair of wrist warmers (to my best friend Carrie, up in Northern Ireland) and it's nice to think that four years later, I'm still making and selling pretty much the same things :)
I'd really love it if I managed to make the big 600 sales benchmark by the 11th July this year but things seem to have slowed down in my shop recently so it could go either way -- I'm not really going to be that upset if it doesn't happen by that date; these things happen when they happen and there's no point in worrying about it!
My day-job on the ferry is starting to get busy now - last weekend was a bank holiday in the UK and this weekend is a bank holiday here -- but the weather has just been so glorious that even when we're busy it's still lovely.
..and this is my first full load of the season (the first of many)
