Of Things Yet To Come

I have visited just about all of you, blogging friends etsy shops and creative shops where you show your pretty things for sale and I am in awe! Such pretty things and quite a bit to offer.

I have been stitching away for hours, days, weeks, and months and still have not enough to open my shop to sell. I want to make sure I have more than one thing of each thing I embroider to offer. I am setting a goal to have at least 5 sets of the same thing to sell.

I am working a lot on dish towel and dish cloth sets. Pillowcases are also in the making. And going by the love of roses and pinks I see on so many blogs, I will have plenty of that kind of motif. So one day, my shop doors will open with shelves of good things to offer. {:

How wonderful Kathleen! I have found that I just can't keep a really full stock in my etsy so I go ahead and list as I finish things. It is a great encouragement to sell something and having new things to list keeps people coming back. If you have several items already done you may want to just put them out there and catch peoples interest:>) Your embroidery is so beautiful!

I happened upon your blog ... what lovely work you do! I have always loved embroidery ... but haven't had the patience to do it myself, but I really appreciate those who do. Yours is beautiful!

Your stitching is exquisite, Kathleen! I don't know how you can bear to sell it, but I guess if you are making it specifically for that purpose, it won't be so hard to part with.
Thank you for visiting my blogs so regularly, I enjoy your comments!
