Hearts and feets

Sometimes an unexpected invitation is so much nicer than one long awaited. Today our lovely neighbour (at the top of the garden this time!) had grandchildren to stay, so the beautiful boy was asked to spend a delightful day in the paddling pool with his adored friends whilst we were invited to an evening barbecue supper. Leaving us an unexpected afternoon to ourselves - all the while listening to the echo of joyous giggles and screams from up the lane!
I did some more work on my Etsy photoes ready for my store launch - I really must decide upon a launch date......
The Tiny Hearts Sampler has a few more french knots! I love working french knots, I get quite mesmerised. I also love working a sampler - the first time I work an embroidery design, just piecing and stitching to try out colours and threads. This one will go on the wall over our bed. I thought it would look wonderful once I finish the quilt throw.
When we wandered up the lane for supper we were greeted by 3 delightful little feets, soggy and tired after a day of running around in the pool and the sunshine.
..and a barbecue accompanied by delicious home-grown vegetables and salads. We felt so spoilt on a hot Sunday evening.
Good neighbours. Where would we be without them! Have a great week everyone. t.xx

Oh good luck with your launch.. I remember mine was somewhat under whelming.. but what I love about Etsy is the more your work it the harder it works for you.

The pup is cute and so are all 30 of those toes!

Dear kitschen pink
thank you for passing my blog...i have now discovered such a wonderful blog..your is full of creative things and i can draw inspirations from your posts for the cakes...and yes, whenever you launch your store do let your first customers have some link or a giveaway so that they come your store often..

Your work is fabulous, would be happy to give some pointers with marketing if you like (apologies if you have it all sorted).
A free giveaway? Hmm, not sure that's the best idea, you would need to ensure every item that you gave away was direct to your target market and that it would produce business. COnsidering the huge amount of work invoved in each piece, that's quite a gamble.
Good luck with it, with your talent you deserve to do extremely well!
