It’s the end of British Summer time, which means we have a 25 hour day today. In the spirit of time travel and 25 hour days, I am giving you a 25% discount code to use on ready made clocks* in my Etsy shop!!!
Just enter the code Sale25 when you check out.
With the code you can this baby for £18.75 in stead of the usual £25 (excl. postage)! Credit cards at the ready.
*Not to be used for “design your own” clocks or brooches.
Here are the nine fleece blankets that I will be selling at the Christmas markets in November. I’m very excited about these and I looooved making them.
All of the edgings are from Edie Echman’s book Around The Corner Crochet Borders. Highly recommended!
Remember I told you about my custom made earrings from Etsy in this post? Well, they arrived this morning all the way from Bahrain. Oh Joy!!
Here they are: the cutest little turtles for my ears.
Needless to say this morning’s chosen earrings are no longer in my ears. (At this stage they don’t even warrant a large photo.)
I love my turtles!! Thank you so much Dafni!
Apologies people, but I’m just testing out Flickr’s cool feature where you can post a photo from your Flickr account directly to WordPress.
If this works, you would probably want to know a bit more about these cushions. Well, I made them for my brother way back in March. I used Stylecraft Special DK and the eight blocks are from Jan Eaton’s (brilliant, fanastic, addictive) 200 Crochet Blocks book (you can find a link to the book on the right of this page). The squares are: Big Round, Lacy Cross, Begonia, Mesh Fantasy, Edwardian Fantasy, Catherine Wheel and Circle In Square.
Okay here goes, I’m going to hit the Post button and see what happens…
Update: It worked! Yeah!
Etsy has recently launched a very handy little feature. If you have a Facebook page and an Etsy shop, you can now link the two with a handy “fLike” button on your Etsy shop Homepage. This means that whenever someone fLikes your Etsy shop, they automatically also like your Facebook page! How cool is that!
I linked the two a few minutes ago and immediately Etsy told me I have 154 likes on my Facebook page. Brilliant!
It would be super duper nice if you, my dear blog readers, could visit my Etsy shop and fLike my shop, and thereby also fLike my Facebook page. There hasn’t been much activity in my shop recently as I’m working hard to create stock for the Christmas markets. Whatever is left over after the markets will however be put up for sale in the shop, so stock levels will increase towards the beginning of December. My Facebook page however is a bit more alive
Other Etsy shop owners who read this blog should also think about linking their Etsy shop to Facebook (and/or Twitter). It’s a win-win situation!
I hope to see your name as a new like on my Facebook page, soon!
On a Monday I can still remember the fun I had over the weekend, Wednesday is the middle of the work week, on Thursday I start getting hopeful and on a Friday I can taste the weekend. But what about a Tuesday? It’s so…. just there. Weekend memories are too far away and the upcoming weekend might as well be a year away.
What we need is a bit of colourful inspiration to get us going on a Tuesday, don’t you think? A pretty picture, beautiful scenery or colourful imagery. Yup, that’ll liven up Tuesdays and turn it into a terrific day!
From now on I will go through my holiday snaps every Tuesday and find us a pretty picture to add colour and joy to the day.
How much more colour do we need?! Stripey carpet, Murano glass dish, tulips, candles and granny squares! Luuuuve it!
I hope you all have a Terrific Tuesday.
