EG's Etsy ~ Just Listed

I have an Etsy shop. It's an online store front for selling things.
I originally started it to sell some of my design samples. I've got a lot :)
I decided I need to keep the majority of my samples for trunk shows and for when I vend my designs.

I have a few of my designs listed and some finished items. I need to put more time & effort into my Etsy, but I just don't have much extra time now.

I recently picked up crocheting again at night as I watch TV.

I've listed this cute Flower Pincushion in bright blue/lime green & hot pink/dark chocolate.

We transplanted all our seedlings into larger pots today.

Tomatoes, green peppers, jalapeno peppers, zinnias, sweet peas, salvias & poppies.

Time to start a second batch of seeds :)

I'll be vending and teaching at IEC (International Embroidery Conference) in Evansville, IN this Fall. NOW is the time to register.

The conference is for machine embroidery, sewing, quilting enthusiasts & more. There are classes and lectures to attend and a vendor area to shop at.

I love orchids

I have several in bloom now and am waiting on a few to send up a new flower stalk.

These aren't growing well, so I made a terrarium for them to up the humidity.
I'll let you know how they do.

"Ollie" Owl Machine Embroidery Design

I'm ♥ing Owls right now.

Introducing "Ollie", one of my newest machine embroidery applique designs.

I quilted fabric on my sewing machine, then embroidered the owl onto it.
I mirror imaged the design to make the opposite one.

I centered them in wodden embroidery hoops and hot glued small branches to the bottom.

Find out more about & purchase this design on my site HERE

'Welcome' Planter

I did this for my Mom.

I cut the outdoor vinyl on my Cricut. The font is Aquarelle and the embellishment under Welcome is from My Vinyl Designer.

The tub & stand came from Old Tyme Pottery.
