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 regretsy.com, 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!
