eCrater Shoppe

Good Morning All:

After a job scare, I have reopened my shoppe......I am trying eCrater this time instead of Etsy.

The reason being that eCrater doesn't charge to list, nor is there a time limit on your listing. Just a little savings. Please see my side panel to visit my shoppe.

I will be adding new items, so please visit often. All items will be hand crafted by me, today I will be adding some lavender dream pillows that are hand embroidered. This takes alot more time then without the embroidery but I think it is worth it. Jewelry will be coming soon, I am still honing my skills there. I have purses in the works as well. Soaps, too.

Thank you for your support.

Thank you

I love this arrangement, of course what is not to love, my darling grandchildren
are the main focus of this wall.
The shelf is one of the treasures I have that my son made for me while he was in
high school. I love adding small shelves under pictures, then using the space to
add other elements like the "I love you" plaque, or other things that relate.

Next up, new curtains for the bedroom..........................................

A day of sewing

I don't have any decorating tid bits to share but thought you'd like to see Miss Mew's sewing adventures.

She was helping me sew the curtains for the bedroom (which I will share next time). the bobbin full?

I don't think you have this threaded right Mom, let me help goes this way right?......
oops the thread came out.

Yep, the lights looks like it is working just fine.

Oh how I love this rotary cutter, especially this little pillow you have on it.

Come on now, lets play.

I am not sure that the ruler is right, are you sure that is an inch.

What is under here, oh my...........Mom, did you see the dust bunnies under here?

This is what happens to a kitten after a very busy days work of sewing.
