Yippee! First Etsy Sale..

Only a couple of posts back I mentioned about Etsy selling whether people used this method or not, how successful they felt it was. Well literally the next day or so I saw on my email that one of my purses that been snapped up. One of my favourites, and I heard today that it has arrived so I can blog it here. Due to computer problems and incompatability of software I have lost track of the photo of the purse which is annoying but it was made out of Cath Kidston fabric in the style of other that are still on Etsy. I had lots of fun wrapping it up and I popped in a few extras, Moo cards, pin badge with the Indigo Blue flower on it and a coin in the purse for luck.
Even the light looks blue on this photo but it was caused by dull weather not my photography skills. This has spurred me on to upload a few more items onto Etsy as I keep making things and putting them in a box and not doing anything else. Tut, Tut.
Over Easter I did manage to fulfill a promise to myself and finish reading this..
This was a nice cosy read and ideal for picking up and putting down. It has been featured lately in knitting and other craft magazines. I will say that there is some swearing in it should it concern you but it is intended as a friendly book. There is a follow up called "Needles and Pearls" but I do not now if it is out yet. Some patterns and items are mentioned in the book and you can find these here. i have printed them all off and there is a pattern for a lovely shawl, teacosy and spiral scarf.
I am going to my sewing group tonight to continue working on Sophie's quilt. I know that I have not mentioned it in a while but it is still on-going and I have nearly done all of the squares but I have got a bit behind due to work and camping on the kitchen table due to the building work. Pictures will be posted of the attic conversion when it is finished so that they are not spread out too much but it is all starting to get quite exciting now.
Many thanks for all the comments left lately. There are more than there used to be and I have found some new blogs to visit as a result. I love reading them and I get a kick out of thinking that you have bothered to visit and type!
Have a great evening.

Congratulations on your etsy sale! That must be a good feeling! Thanks for coming by my blog. Don't you just love that blogging without obligation! I'll be back to look around some more when taxes are done!

Thanks for leaving such a nice comment on my blog.

Yes-anyone can join in on my blog challenge. You don't have to quilt. I post a photo, and you can use anything that inspires you to make anything you want. Color, shape, whatever. You can paint, sew, draw, quilt. It doesn't matter. Just hoping to help get creativity flowing with the inspiration pieces I post. If you do make something, post it on your blog, then link your blog post in the Mr. Linky box on my blog. Hope that helps explain it! Have a great day!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog, I love to hear from everyone too. Congratulations on your first Etsy sale, here's hoping for many more in the future. You have very good wrapping skills which is a lovely way to receive a purchase. I have taken the Blogging without Obligation advice and posted it on my blog, thanks for that, as I am always panicking about commenting, and as your blogroll gets longer and longer, it gets harder and harder, and takes up more and more time! I will look in again soon. x
