Violet Moon Embroidery

This shop belongs to my Buffalo Etsy Team group.. and I got to see her towels upclose.. they are really well done.. I wanted to get some of them myself.. but alas.. the vet bills and my printer breaking down stopped that..

I told her we should be a team.. grin.. she can do the embroidery and me, I can top the towels with crochet.. smile.. so if anyone wants that done.. I will give you a discount.. just tell her you want me to do this.. and I will do it for $1.. but you need to tell her this before she mails it..

Life Gets Busier and Busier..

It is getting to that time of year again.. when I have to start cutting back on things.. trying to decide on what..

I decided Listia is going to be drastically cut back.. maybe once or twice a month I will put things up.. and none of them will be for handcrocheted items.. just too many items.. and I really need to cut back on this..

Ebay -- well.. I will continue to put up the items listed.. and one or two new items per week.. depending on if the sales keep going..

My crochet.. well.. of course that is my number one.. but I will have to currently not take any new orders.. maybe starting in November again.. I think I have enough to keep me busy for the next few months.. with a craft show and all the orders I have..

Fall is here... and it is getting colder so we have to start with the fall cleaning and packing up for the winter.. all that takes time.. and energy.. both I seem to have less and less of as I get older.

My current update on Crochet Items

I just finished this football dog can see where I made openings for his ears.. lol.. I had hoped to get some pictures of my dog wearing it.. but didnt have time. Guess I will have to wait until I see if the person who ordered it, sends me one..

Also.. I had several orders for the Christmas stars.. and finally got done with them all.. now working on a few Thanksgiving Hanging towels and dishclothes that were ordered via Etsy.. no pictures yet to show you..Hopefully later next week.

Sunday Update..

I know I havent been here in a while.. I have been busy with orders as well as putting items up on Ebay and Listia.. I have been putting up both my sachets and my Xmas stars and been getting alot of orders -- both via Listia and also paid orders. 

You can order these both items on either Ebay or Etsy.. and both are made custom in what colors you want.. 

Sachets - 

The sachets can be ordered filled with dried lavender or dried peppermint leaves.. both are from the Co-op and are organic.. they can be refreshed by getting the essential oils.. and can be used over and over again.. Pretty gift for a teacher, pet sitter, a friend.. etc.. a great stocking stuffer.. 

Ebay -  This link runs out in a day.. so I will update you with the new one in a day or so.. 

Christmas Stars -

These would make a nice item on top of a package, in a card, or even a group of them as a gift.

I sell these in sets of 5.. in your choice of colors and yarn.. You can choose between glitter yarn or Simply Soft.. or even a combo of the two.. the stars come in two colors.. so I will need your choice of the two colors.. and yes, you can mix and match any or all colors you want..  

They are also about 4 inches in size..
