Cleaning the studio and adding books to Etsy

Good day to everyone :)
I have been very busy cleaning my studio/office. I love crafts so much and I always have been doing something. I have been stitching since I was about 8. I took sewing lessons when I was 12 with my aunts and made suits and clothes. I have crocheted for a very long time too making doily's, snowflakes and so much more. I took stained glass lessons and made a mirror, a table lamp and other gifts. I have done macrame, painted pictures, sketched, refinished furniture, done craft fairs, all kinds of stitching, made candles, quilted, made dolls, 3 dimensional paper pictures, and so much more. I guess I am from the 60's generation of using our hands and enjoying creativity. It kept me out of trouble. So with all of that said I need to get rid of some of my books. I have such a large stash of books that I have only looked at once or twice. With the dawning of Pinterest I have been exploring so much and have been inspired by so much that I have decided to try my best to bring my focus into a general area. I am keeping stitching, wool & felt, and a little crochet. With those 3 areas I have so many things in my idea book that it is overflowing :). So I am off to create. (Its my therapy). But I still need to "SIMPLIFY". I will be adding about 2-3 books a day onto my Etsy shop. I will give a brief description of each, I will try to keep the shipping cost down but some of the books are heavy. If you love books like I do please check them out. They are all crafty :)
have a good night

  1. Good Morning Donna: I have been wondering if the bird pattern from your last blog will ever be available to purchase on your blog site, I think they are adorable.
    I too have been cleaning out old crafts that I am not interested in any longer. I am like you I started to sew when I was 8 years old made my first dress and wish I still had it even if it would not fit just for a memory lols.
