Now that I can't blog from work it seems I can't find the time... Grrrr. Doesn't mean I haven't been busy. I have been trying very hard to promote my Etsy shop and sales are just not there. It's very frustrating, but I know most of it is my anxiety and impatience with retail. I'm just not cut out for it. So I need to take a chill pill and just keep on doing what I love - which is crochet. I'm not going to worry too much about sales.
I finally tapped into my stash of chenille and I'm really glad I did. I've done two lovely scarves that I have been tempted to keep for myself, but I already have about 50. LOL So they are posted on the shop and have gotten some attention and such, so I know the right buyer will come along. Several of the chenilles I have are actually from Turkey. I have been hesitant about using them, but then decided what was I waiting for? This first pic is a pretty multicolored number using Lion brand chenille in black, royal and claret.
I did recieve the most wonderful gift in the mail from Debi over at Dly's Hooks and Yarns. Not only did she send the most charming granny square, but she also sent me lip gloss from Mary Kay!! Thank you so much!!! The lip gloss is a wonderful shade - perfect with my complexion! I must say after receiving her square I was a tad bit embarrassed to send mine. Her stitch is so perfect and beautiful!! My square looked like it was done by a 1st grader.
Lastly I had to share this pic of Hooters. For some reason she has taken a liking to my trash can and hops in all the time and just sits there. Every time I see her I laugh.
I have put down my hook for a few days waiting for some creative juices to flow my way. Until then the DH and I are doing taxes, visiting horses and enjoying the rain. We're getting it in buckets. If it were only colder I'd be writing this snowed in for certain!
