This morning hubby and I attended a planting at the park across the road from where we live. It's not something either of us have done before, but it's a lovely park which we use daily to walk Coco, so we thought we would do our part. Though we didn't really have a great deal to do, because our local Council gardeners had already dug the holes for us to plant the grasses and groundcover, so we were home for lunch. However, it was nice to see so many of the multi cultural mix of people from our neighbourhood attending the planting and to watch the children enjoy themselves.
Just lately I've been thinking about all the fabric and threads I have just sitting here doing nothing. There are so many, I will never use them in my life time. So for the past few days I have been busy making a new Etsy Store to sell them on to people who can put them to good use.
All the fabrics are like new, many of them have very cute designs on them, but are too large for what I'm currently working on. Others are fabrics not suitable for the dolls clothes I make.
The threads have never been used and are still in the boxes they came in, though people may purchase them by the reel. Gutermann threads are made in Germany and are really strong, so they are perfect for crafty people, especially those making teddy bears or felt softies.
I am offering a Grand Opening discount of 10% for purchases over $10. Just type this code "OPENING2015" in at the checkout to receive it.
Please stop by and add me to your favourites, so you can keep up with the new items I will be adding over the coming weeks, you may just find something you really like.
On the doll and sewing front, it's been a little quiet mainly because I have been waiting on boots to arrive from MoriTime. Unfortunately, it looks like they are lost. She has promised to send them again this coming week and will make a claim for reimbursement from Hong Kong Post. However, it's put me way behind on sewing my steampunk outfits as I need to know how far up the leg the boots are going to sit before I can complete drafting my pattern!
Well that's about it my lovelies, I will be back posting dolly stuff shortly. :)
