Three shops on Etsy take all my free time. They need a lot of work on SEO, answering your messages, advertising on social media etc. But the result translates into sales. Being a Star seller has its sense because this status helps increase sales. My two shops have Star sellers badges. Unfortunately, the third one – LaceCrochetFinds – isn’t worth it just because of low sales. Do you think it is fair?
The 4th part of Durene Jones Fun Fantasy Cars Sal is ready and it is a Strawberry Car. Bright and funny, it makes you smile like all this project, isn’t it?
I really don’t like french knots, but when I see how they bring alive the embroidery…well, I guess I’m wrong. This is a bush before and after adding them.
The last part of Woodland Sal by Durene Jones pattern, organised by Lakesideneedlcraft is ready and it was sweet Hedgehog 🦔. There are two pictures in order to show how backstitch brings stitching to life.

This post is not accidental, because one of my works – Irys – received two awards. I am very grateful to the organizers of this competition, who gave me the opportunity to see a lot of beautiful works, which you can see by following the link below. In addition, I would like to thank the talented painter Oksana Gatalskaja , the author of this beautiful Irys, according to which the designer Anna Kuznietsova made the pattern. Thank you!
Happy me 🙂
I stitched a lot of Lucie Heaton www.lucieheaton.com mice, but this is one of my favourite.
