I have been making my owls from coffee sacks for some time now but, after a run of popularity, I had one sitting in my shop for quite a while so didn’t make any more.
Then, the other day, everybody started putting him in their ‘favourites’, then somebody bought him but people carried on favouriting him (is that a verb? I can’t think so?). I hadn’t been on the Front Page and couldn’t find him on the Etsy blog so it is a mystery. Anyway, I made another one straight away because somebody asked me to so he has already gone and now I have another to add.
I have to admit, I don’t really like sewing coffee sacks on my lovely new sewing machine because of all of the ‘dust’ that comes off the fibres and the needles blunt quickly, so I think I’m going to get my old one out and use that just for the owls.
Sometimes you see things that you have to have and, as it’s Christmas, I decided to spend some of the miniscule ‘ profit’ from my crafting endeavours on little gifts that my family might buy me if they could see my list of favourites on Etsy or, at least, I like to think they would. Of course, if they could see my list of favourites, they would also see what I’ve earmarked for them so that would spoil the surprise. Anyway, I promised myself a little gift when I reached 200 shop hearts and then, 300 followed rather quickly due to quite a few front pages in November, so I promised myself another. Then, every year, I like to add to the mountain of items which are the family Christmas decorations so, had to have a couple of them. The necklace, I have told my husband, is from him and – how pathetic is this? – I’ve even had it addressed to him so that I don’t get to see it before Christmas day. Anyway, enough justification, here they are for your delectation and envy. I have put in a link to the lovely creators but these particular items are mine….all mine…
