Home again, home again, jiggedy jig

So finally after two LONG weeks we made our way home. It was so nice to sleep in our own bed and be comfortable again. Yesterday was spent restocking the kitchen and catching back up on laundry. Today I spent a long lonely day in my bedroom/sewing room as there were a bunch of guys here in my livingroom coding away. I was so excited to get home but now I am feeling a bit melancholy. I think it's just because I know I have to go back to school tomorrow and Im SO tired of French class I could scream. The break away was so nice. I like my teacher and I enjoy learning but I feel like every time I have to go there I break my chain of thought and it takes me forever to get back in the zone. I don't know if anyone else out there feels the same way but I feel like sometimes my grasp on what I want to do is very tenuous. I have all these grand thoughts on a project and then "Oh wait...sorry but I have to put that on hold....time for class." Then when I get back home all my ideas seem as mist.
Anyway...enough of the complaining. I did get quite a bit accomplished today back in my hole. Put a zipper in a jacket, finished organizing all my material that my MIL gave me and sorted all the little bits of thread, needles. etc. I also finished my little Rag Bag I made awhile back and cut out some material for another piece. Last night I worked on this....

I'm not sure where I am going with it and its quite a change from what I have been doing. I like many aspects of it but I'm really unhappy with the piece I chose for the background. I found a wonderful wheat color piece of wool after I started this that I knew would be perfect for it. I think I might make this into a little mermaid bag...somethig for her to keep her treasures in. Then I might work on another piece in this style on the piece of wool...something a bit more elaborate maybe? I still have my little shoe pincushion to finish and of course my paisleys but I am waiting for my gloves to come in the mail before I do much more work on that. It has been quite brutal on my wrist and thumbs!
D is really pushing me to open my etsy shop. I don't really want to rush it and only have two items I would even put on there. I wanted to wait till I had more items to post. He says the sooner the better as it will get my things out there where people can see them. What do you guys think?

  1. I think it is better to wait - you want to have enough stuff that people will come back - and you want to be in a mode where you have new stuff to list often. Just don't procrastinate and wait too long! Good luck.

  2. Yes, what Morna said is great advice. I do think it's wise to have at least a half dozen items ready to list, but really the more the better.
    Your embroidery is beautiful!

  3. Well, I am the Guru, and I think you should at least finish that 'wonderful' 'Parlez-vous Francais' class. =p
    When I am doing a particular job at home, and I have to stop and run to BH, that's enough to ruin the whole wtv I'm doing. Great minds think wrong together.
    Some beautiful embroidery stitches your sporting this Day =)
