I set up my mini blank backdrop to photograph my products, with the little bit of morning light.
Then it was to the editing to make the white background actually look white!
Then it was to the shop, adding each item and writing descriptions.
It's all very time consuming but fingers crossed it will be worth the effort.
Once all the cushions were relisted, it was the same process to get the baubles that I made last year, getting hubby to pick a sprig of holly for the finishing touch.
I welcome you all to my newly open store. The ribbon is cut (but not a celebrity in sight!), the trumpets are blowing (a party popper might have to do) and the doors are finally open (even if they are just virtual doors!)
I also went back to my mood squares as I'm determined that I will be ready for the unveiling at the end of the year!
I made another couple of squares. The first I had a test of the pattern that Attic 24 made for her new blanket.
The second, well I just made it up! I worked through the back of the stitch only, so it had a different effect. Adding a couple of normal tr stitches in a contrasting colour.
Once I'd finished I decided it needed a little something of interest, so a few little embroidery stitches later and little rows of tulips were born...
I've spent plenty of time edging my previous squares, and getting those pesky ends sewn in.
I do feel like I'm getting somewhere, but the biggest test will be as I get busier at work and it eats into my time more and more, which is why I need to make sure I'm not trailing behind...
Today I have a rare Sunday off work, why?, because i'm creaking my way into being another year older!
I was treated to coffee and breakfast in bed...
Followed by opening cards...
I was completely spoilt!!
Tonight, I am looking forward to celebrating with a meal at a local Italian restaurant
