Lots of good news!

So I have quite a few things I am excited about. I have a gal that wants my to make a soaker for her, and I sold my crocheted one. I also have a little bitty soaker done to post soon. I have a pretty large order for my diapers, so I have been sewing away at them, I am half way done. I will finish them Wed.

My etsy shop looks so cute since I had Mia, of Misa's Graphic Design, design me a banner, avatar, thankyou, and a business card. I really like what she came up with for me. She was really great to work with!

I picked up some more sweaters the other night and I am excited about the soakers and longies they will make! My friend that I went with to the city said that now she is always going to stop and look through the sweaters and blankets when she goes to thrift stores, she had fun looking with me.

I am excited about how my shop is growing, so far it has paid for itself, so that is good.

By the way Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! I have so much to be thankful for this season!

I had another sale!

Yeah, I sold my real "Green" soaker! This is very exciting to me, maybe I should explain that Lewania bought "Lewania's Purse", so this is my first official sale to someone I don't know!

I also got my banner and avatar, and business cards from Mia today! They are very cute and I am happy with them. I just have to post them up now. My internet is very slow tonight, so it might have to wait until tomorrow.

Any ideas?

So, I am trying to think of a little saying to go with the name of my shop. You know, like
The Hat Rack
"A hat for every occasion"

That sort of a thing. So if any of you have any ideas, I am open.

I also am putting up better pics today of some things I hope they look better.

Busy as a Bee!

So, yesterday I spent all day at the machine and this is the results. I also made a light box so I could get better pictures. I am excited about the results!

The flower makes this hat.

A hat I have been working on and recently finished!
This one is tiny, newborn to 4 months!

The cables on this one are fun.

I love the pocket on this one!

I love this one!

The beads on this one are adorable.

I am kinda excited but don't want to jinx it, I have something I am working on, and I think it will be a good thing. I am excited because I have sold 3 items from my shop already. What fun, hope fully I can get it all figured out and it will all fall into place. Wish me luck with my new venture into networking!

Off the Hook!

Lucy's sheek purse is "off the hook"! I love it, I hope Lucy likes it too. The pattern isn't too hard and I think she can whip one up without too much problem..

"on the needles" - not quite "off the hook"

Not quite "off the hook" would be a purse that my sis Lucy asked me to make up a pattern for. She is just starting to crochet, so I have to keep it pretty easy, but she wants it to be cute too, so I'm trying it out.

"On the needles" is a purse that I am almost 1/2 way done with. I think it will be cute, and I am excited to get this one done and on my etsy!

All DONE!!

I finished them! They are really cute and way soft, I love them. They look cute on my baby too. They are about a size 12-18 months. Made with 100% wool yarn. I need to lanolize them and then they will be posted for sale on my shop. I hope somebody else likes them as much as me.

My pattern-almost finished!

So here it is almost finished! I just need to finish the ribbing, then do the edging. Then I need to felt and lanolize it, then I can post it! I am so excited!

Isn't it cute?

Soakers - in progress!

I have soakers all cut out to sew, but my dial-up is prohibiting me from posting pics right now! Ahhhh! the frustration!
