(My sisters, Michelle, and I...)
A wonderful day spent with my dear friend Michelle and her Mom, comprised of sewing (I'm finally getting to work on my 'Rowena' gown for Atlanta's HCIF... such fun!), baking and of course eating brownies, and thoroughly enjoying a bit of Holiday Inn.
And just for the record, Fred Astaire is amazing. Just sayin'.
Here's something else completely amazing that I wanted to share...
So, last night, I posted about my latest embroidery project. I made a custom listing in my shop for the dishtowel set. Clicked 'Publish'. Then shut down the computer and played my accordion for about an hour.
It's amazing what can happen when you just sit down and play one of those things. Once I sneezed so hard while playing Old Joe Clark that my chin smashed into the top of the accordion and I believe I fractured it... but I digress. This time, with Remo still strapped on, I took a quick glance at my email.
Then screamed. And sat down on the floor.
For lo and behold, I had just sold another flour sack towel set. I really could not believe my eyes for a good while, and when it sank in, there was nothing to do but start playing the Irish Washerwoman, Remo still so handily sitting in my lap.
What a pal.
It might not be a big deal to some Etsy sellers, but it sure meant a lot to me. I am so encouraged to see business picking up, and I want to give a warm word of encouragement to all of you who might, like me, be trying to make a successful Etsy shop.
Just keep going forward, give the very best that's in you, don't get discouraged, and sometimes it's good to just sit back and see what God can do.
You'll be surprised.
