I Sold Something!

Yes I did! I am so excited that I can say this. This week, and it is not over yet, an old friend has been hostessing a home boutique featuring hand made items. Years ago, she had a store that was dedicated to heirloom sewing. After leaving that business, she now teaches out of her home studio, and once a year, she clears out the entire downstairs of her home to host this event. Last night, "ladies night out," and a chance to meet the artisans, was fabulous, and I had to keep checking to make sure my eyeballs were still in my head. There was just so much to see.

My friend, Barbara, of B3Fibers, took several skeins of hand spun yarn, and a number of the most whimsical tea cozies I have ever seen. I contributed several items of my own, and was thrilled to find that the scarf I named "Leaves & Dewdrops" had sold. Yippee!!! I am going to need to create a few more of these, as they are on my daughter-in-laws favorites list. I do have a few already knit, but they do need their decorations of bead conglomerates. So, here's hoping that my little green creation will find a loving home, and be a frequent adornment of someone's neck. Goodbye and good fortune "Leaves & Dewdrops!"


  1. And there I was, still reformulating my Etsy-or-Not mail and THERE YOU GO and make your first sell! And a beautiful item it is, the new owner will have a lovely and unique addition to her wardrobe. Actually, I was in favor of these personalized home boutique shows because it attracts people with genuine interest in what is offered.
    I am very happy for you!

  2. Well, I am eager to pick up what did not sell tomorrow, and see if anything else found a new home. I was planning to do a home boutique with a friend, and may still do so. We were both a little disappointed that we were not allowed to bring in more of what we do, but the hostess was protecting her crafty children by not allowing competition. ...Understandable I guess.
