I found myself with an entire free day today. I thought I had a meeting, but that was last week (and I was there!!) and yes, I could of gone shopping, but heck, that's boring. So I stayed home. Did a little work (pd by the hour) and some stitching.
I found these great little motifs I could rescue from a scrap of tatting. I saw them and though "flowers". I was going to , and even started , doing the embroidery in the same colour as the tatting. I think I will do that next time. The leaves I took the leap and did satin stitch. I avoid that like the plague usually. You have to be so precise....I am happy with the way it came out though.
I had a meeting last night, so I took my box of goodies and set everything up (etsy inventory). I meant to get a photo. That was a bit of an intimidating experience. I have really had to take a deep breath and start selling myself. I don't mind online stuff. I have time to think about what I am going to say. I don't have to look you in the eye, and pretend I am confident. I am getting better at it. But I figure if people don't actually know what I do, well, they can't buy anything can they. No sales, but hopefully I have planted a seed and people will think of me in the future.
