My hexies another Rose and an Etsy Shop!

 I fancied doing a little more with the colour catcher hexies, so mounted it on a black fulled sweater, then running stitched about a bit. Added one of my very favourite mother of pearl buttons and now it sits once again, until I suss out what to do next!
I had also completed the last of my Folgate Roses. Its been sliced up somewhat, from what we were doing with Shelagh Folgate in her Rosey, Rosey workshop.........but its now complete....
Though maybe....I might take out the dark green feather stitch and replace that with a lighter shade..which wont be easy, since its got other stitches and thread laid over it and Ive backed the blumming thing. But only now do I not like that darker green! DUHHH

It was either 2006 or 2008 when I first opened an Etsy shop  .........and have I used it since then?
 I've an idea a local gallery I have sold afew things through, may now be diversifying into art materials because they are struggling to get by.
There seems to be a continued delay in them paying out now, for what they've sold.
I hope they do survive, for themselves as well as me. The lass running it has worked hard and was so hopeful, but then of course the banks killed the ecconomy.
Another local shop I sold from has closed now and it looks as if Ive gotten burnt there.
I did finally manage to speak to that owner, who said she hadnt got my address to post me what was owed to me! Yeah right.
But having been given it, again, there is still no sign of any payment.

So I have opened up the Etsy shop.........anyone know how I put an Etsy badge on the blog by any chance?
I havent been able to suss that out!
I've put just a few things in so far like these below, so will see what happens to them. But Im not sure anyone other than our own crafty selves know about and look at Etsy!

Dont mind if this Head Hugger and fingerless gloves doesnt sell though, cos I like them both anyway!


  1. Lyn, I really like what you've done with the hexies. Honest to whoever, I was just now upstairs playing with my hexies, is that amazing or what? You've got beautiful items stocking your etsy shop -- that is so cool! I didn't know you had been selling your things but am not a bit surprised. You go, girl!

  2. Go to your Currently for Sale page, and scroll down to the Promote section on the left hand sidebar. Click on Etsy Mini, as that is what they call those things you put on your blog! Took me a while to work that one out too.
    Good luck with the shop!

  3. Bless your heart Deborah, it works!
