So, my crocheted blanket did get finished and delivered before Benjamin was delivered! Here he is in his sweet little baby-ness…………..laying on The Blanket!
This really started me thinking about the difference between my creations this past year, verses my sewing, knitting and crocheting up until my Etsy venture. Prior to Etsy, when I made something it sort of ‘stayed in the family’. Hats, scarves, shirts, blankets, socks…………all stayed pretty darned close to home.
Now, after posting my efforts in my little shop, it is still such a crazy surprise when someone buys an item. Or, several items. And…………they aren’t even related to me! What an amazing feeling. Each time someone contacts me about an item I have made, it just makes my day. Everyone who makes anything should have someone buy their items! No wonder Etsy is such a busy place!
