Restocking the shop ..

So i've decided to gut my shop on etsy, rename it, and start afresh.
My previous efforts with putting whatever took my fancy into my shop didn't make it look professional, and I didn't have that much interest in it.

So I put it into vacation mode, and had a think about what I wanted to do with it. Close it down? Reopen and continue along? go in a different direction altogether? Do something I enjoy, and list those?

I ended up choosing the last option, and have started cross stitching again. I'll mainly befocusing on the smaller peices, as I get my speed up (i'm a slow stitcher), and so I can have more than one or two peices before the 'big reopen'!

I have completed one peice so far, a cute little dragon, that reminds you a bit of Puff the magic dragon - not intentional, but when someone pointed it out on, I couldn't help but see it too!

Yes, it's blurry, and the colours are washed out - it looks so much nicer in person! I'm waiting on payday to get a frame for this, and an internet friend has cut me a few frames, and they are being sent to me.

I've been working on another sampler, too - almost finished it! It's done in perle variation thread, and it looking very pretty!
All going well, I should have it done by the end of the day.

After that, i'm going to stitch up a little British Palace Guard. I can turn this one into a magnet easily, i'll see how it goes!
