Etsy .... at last

A few years ago I set up an Etsy shop selling childrens handmade clothes.  It went ok, although I never actually sold anything on Etsy, all my listed items were sold through craft fairs & private sales.

Lately, I have been enjoying my crochet & have decide to start listing my items again.  Afterall, as much as I would like to, I can't keep everything I make.

So, here is a little preview of what's been going on.

A set of coasters made for my lovely Granny - they match her living room!

Hairbands for my daughters friends - I've made so many of these

Bunting for a friends birthday

Tiny heart bunting for a friends newborn baby - it was obviously a girl
So, there we have it.  I've added a link to my shop - only one item listed at the moment.  I had to do it twice, so lost enthusiasm to do any more today.

Me Time!

This year I have been able to spend some time on my hobbies.  The kids are growing up & becoming a little bit more independent.  It has given me time to sit down occasionally (usually whilst a passenger in the car!) & do a little bit of crochet.

The pattern for the cushion came from the very clever Lucy over at Attic 24.  I changed mine slightly by adding a small flower on the reverse.

I'm so pleased I've found the time to create again.  I'm hoping I can share some more projects with you soon.
