With each stitch that passes, my thoughts turn to the website I want to someday create to sell my embroidery on. It all comes from visiting you creative bloggers and visiting your etsy shops. You are so inspiring! Maybe it is the area I live in,and maybe the fact that embroidery is not really sought out, but when I tell folks that I hand embroider, they don't show a sign of interest. I have gotten more interest and more encouragement from you my blogging friends,.. thank you! This weekend, I visited with an email friend, who has a wonderful website, and she has encouraged me to use the website builders she uses as a way of selling my embroidery. Go visit Donna at Quilt books, Fabric, ect. http://www.freewebs.com/quiltingspecial/ when you get a chance, her many items are wonderful to look at. So I worked and am still working on the coaster set that I hope to one day sell. I thought a bee and a butterfly would be good to add to the spring set of coasters. As you can see, I am still working on the butterfly.
What is more endearing than a bee on lilacs?I still need to stitch the edging around it. If you click on the pictures you can see the stitch work much better. I know I need to learn to take pictures of my work better if I am to place them on my website. I really want to work on some of my own linen designs for this website. I hope to have linens for the kitchen, dining room, bedroom and bath. Which means I need to get to stitchin'! I am going to start off small, offering just a few of things I have made. Then slowly work my way up to more things. My biggest worry is how to accept payments and how to figure postage. Any suggestions? I will let you know when I get my website ready. I am hoping to accomplish this by the end of this month. Now my question, ..... should I keep the name Yesteryear Embroideries, or should I name it something else? Any suggestions? I would love to hear!
