I finally (and I mean finally) opened my shop on Etsy. I have more of a feeling of relief than anything, even excitement. It was such a long wind up, you know? All the preliminary work took ages, and now I feel content to rest on my laurels a bit (read: check my shop stats obsessively and hold my breath waiting for my first sale!). I'm a bit burnt out on sewing after making 12 dolls to open with, but I really should get back to the machine. I stated in my shop announcement that I would soon be making doll quilts, etc, so I need to work on that... which brings me to...
... the fact that I am completely and totally distracted from making dolls because all I want to do is design fabric. A couple of weeks ago I made a design entitled "Salt as Stars" and this week I ordered and received a fat quarter of it in the mail. I am thrilled to bits over it... I cannot even describe. Can I just show you?
I know I still have a lot to learn... and the design is by no means perfect... but just the fact that I finished it, and have it printed, and enjoyed literally every minute of creating it makes me want to do more. I have so many sketches just waiting to be brought to life!
