1st Sale on my Etsy store!!!

Woo Hoo! It only took me 3 months, but I finally made my first sale on my Etsy online store yesterday!! I've sold many of my patterns on ebay, but their fees have gotten so high I decided I needed to look for another avenue. With my ebay feedback score & history, I never thought it would take so long for my first sale.

The best part is, it was my newest piece I just finished stitching 2-1/2 weeks ago. I've included a picture of it for everyone to see. I've also pasted a portion of the e-mail message I received from the buyer. It really made me feel good!!
"...I am getting back into cross stitching to add different dimensions to my quilts. So this will be incorporated into a future quilt. I just didn't want to have everything I stitched framed on a wall. But the idea of incorporating them into quilt and memory collages has much more appeal for me now. Thank you so much for your great designs. I really looked hard for a great sun. I don't know if you ever watch the Sunday Morning Show, but they always feature great suns that are creative and fun. I've always loved them...Yours has a flavor of those, but better."
Thanks for sharing my joy with me! Hopefully I'll have many more success stories to share with everyone.
Till next time...Happy Stitching!

My First Blog

As I'm trying to get my business up and running to sell my cross stitch patterns & kits I have designed, I've decided it is time to get with the 21st century and start my own blog. My teenage son will be so proud of me!! This will be a work in progress as I'm learning everything there is to know about the wide world of blogging.

I welcome all comments and please check back as I share my passion of cross-stitching!

In the meanwhile, feel free to check out my shop at:
