Sunday, Sunday

I don't want to use my blog just to plug my Etsy shop, but all of you dear friends who encouraged me have only got yourselves to blame if I keep going on about it!!  As it is a new enterprise it is dominating my waking hours at the moment. At least any of you who may be thinking of doing the same thing can share my experiences. I know I have got to put a few hours in setting things up and hopefully when I have got used to the procedures I can do this more quickly. Of course just making stuff to sell is only the start. I have spent hours looking at other posts deciding how I can make my pieces eye-catching as there are hundreds if not thousands of rivals. Here are my new book covers I have stitched this week. My first one sold immediately which was very gratifying, hopefully these will too.
I thought I would photograph them with some accessories to make the pictures more eye catching.
Now I need to start looking at magazines and catalogues for ideas for making the photographs more striking,
Now I am going to enjoy my Sunday evening watching some television with Mr T.
I hope you have a good week and I'll be back soon.

These look really good, Jill. I'm still playing around with names and emails for my Etsy shop - it never seems to get to the top of the priority list!
Hope you enjoyed the TV.

Have clicked on these for closeups and just love the detail and fabrics. From previous comments I can see you are going down a storm! Well deserved!

Better and better everyday. So proud of you!

These look great. I can't follow the link to your Etsy shop: is it just me or is there a problem with it?

Well, they certainly flew out of your shop. I think you have come up with a winner.

Shall look forward to seeing the finished seed pod designs.
Hope your foot improves.

Jill,
As always the colour combinations on your pieces are just lovely. You are so productive! Glad the shop is proving a success after all the angst about whether to set one up or not. I think you're on to a winner with the book covers. They look very good indeed. Lesley x
