Been Bored i have decided to create and sell

Even though i have some backstitch left to do on that bookmark. I've been quite bored. Just stuck on the computer all the time or watching telly really.
Been Reading a trashy Jilly cooper novel also. I have never read her before, but i was looking for a different author to read. I bought that book and some others at a book fair in town a few weeks ago. I haven't read a good book in a while. Been doing all that stitching i suppose.

Today, to stop my boredom of doing time killing things such as going on facebook a lot, but fair play i never play farmville i refuse to go on there.
Well i have decided to make and sell things. Just out of the blue like that.
I bought beads and charms, headpins and eyepins etc, to make things such as mobile phone charms. yes i had some tools as well
I think i will stick with mobile phone/bag charms at the moment, i will then start making things like wine glass tags/charms and bookmarks. and also sell handmade cards too one day.
oh and i will be creating cross stitch charms too. just to use the bits of aida i got left over and don't know what to do with. i hope i can use aida, but i think it maybe will not be strong enough unlike plastic canvas.

Maybe on ebay or etsy i will call my shop 'I cell phone key charms' I sell funky charms, haha get it? ok a bit sad hahaha maybe something like 'Wine glass charms' will be better.

Oh well i hope to recieve my package on saturday, yep the lovely lady is very fast. I don't mind it coming on monday though, give me a little more time to think of ideas etc.
I hope i can get into it, i want to be more creative than i am as these days i can only go from instructions, and not able to get ideas of my own.

I might even then when i make different things i can have workshop days and each workshop day i will make something different to the previous day.
who knows i may make a business out of it i may not. Depends on how it goes........

Well Good luck to me!

Happy stitching !!!

My Latest Little Finish

This was quick to do, A mother's day design from cross stitch collection, an issue from back in the 90's i think!

The colours look lighter in real life, so i'm not fussy on it, i rather it look like what it shows in the magazine.

I'm still doing the bookmark, well i havent picked it up for days. i only got the backstith to do really. I know i'm going to need so iron on interfacing to go on the back of it. The latest winnie the pooh kits from designer stitches doesn't have anything for the back of them.

And i am chuffed today as Wales has beaten Italy in the rugby today! YESSSSSSS!!!!
