No Etsy Selling For Me



 my head was about to explode
I seriously give up




I can't deal with the directions
there will be no etsy shop for me
it will not let me list items for sale

please don't offer helpful suggestions
I'm done!
 

for now I'm going back to creating
who's to know
what I'll do in 2018

whew...that's a a relief... 
I feel better already

* in case you don't know most of my images are from Pinterest

Cat Break


two cats here saying no more cats...


this could be my forever excuse...


love this...and George Carlin...

I have a headache from trying 
to get things listed in my etsy shop
taking a cat break

The Dye Pots Are Out

http://altoonsultan.blogspot.com/2009/08/dyeing-day.html

I found the above photo on Pinterest
then followed the link to the blog
very good reading...

My dye pots are full
at the moment there are three pots of green
simmering away
it's a work day so only those today

I'm getting ready to open my etsy store again
FB buyers made me dizzy over the weekend
think it will be easier to just sell out right 

we'll see

I'm very happy with all the sales I made this year
a good dent has been made in the sewing room,
the wool room and a debt or two

I'll let you know when the shop is open
I'm going to do wool ...over dyed for now,
cotton bundles...so much awesome Moda and such from the past
finished hooked rugs and other decor
whatever I can live without

it's a dreary day in Ohio
good for dyeing
not so bad for going to work

No Hooking Just Cats






there is a rug on the frame
I just can't seem to start hooking ...

Back to the Frame


some images from Pinterest
to help me find the colors for my first Christmas rug 2017





not too hard to tell where it's headed...
I'll be making a few St Nick rugs for fund raisers...

a woman can't hook cats ALL the time
well, maybe some women
but not me
at least not now...

happy Sunday!

Decisions in the Sewing Room



saw this image on Pinterest
I have the pattern
have had the pattern for ever it seems
will I ever use the pattern
probably not

it's going into the "maybe sell" pile

for now I've been finishing hooked rugs
all those mats hooked
over the past few months
I like the finishing work
except signing them
I do it in stitches with pearle cotton

Happy Friday!

Wool in the Mail


even though it's only a yard
it's still the best day ever when wool arrives!

Last Night







 






I love my job  
even when I'm alone in the ER
on a very busy night
