Good info to share with my readers...

I have been finishing up some quilted projects with selling them in mind...
Even though I have a business, Needles and Pins, where I restore/repair antique quilts, I felt led to do a bit more with the business and decided to sell some of my quilted items.

one of my mini's with my little wind up toy that Pa gave me
many years ago..

I researched Etsy and found it to be easy and affordable. Several of my "crafty" friends have sold on Etsy and also encouraged me to sell.  So I took the plunge and began selling yesterday!!

Now, to list it on my blog...hummm...tried several ways and it did NOT work...
I thought, Google it, and see what comes up.
I found a wonderful tutorial and wanted to share it with you 
to also encourage you to sell some of your wonderful items.

Here is Timothy Adams Designs helpful tutorial
which includes a video. I actually watched it all the way through once and then minimized it while still playing and did what he said while just listening to him tell me just what to do.

EASY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, take a look at my Etsy Mini that I added and see what I have been working on.
I use my theme of adding something old (vintage) with something new.
I hope to add to it as I complete other items.
But for now, I am pleased.

Enjoy, my readers

Lamentations 3:22-24
for HIS compassions never fail.
they are new every morning:
great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, "The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for Him."


  1. Hi, Kathy...I am a little bit confused. What is an Etsy -mini? Where is yours?

  2. Ditto on what Amy said! Haha. But I am happy for you that you've decided to sell on Etsy. I'll add you to my list of favorites and check out your site!

  3. Isn't it fun to learn how to add new gadgets to your blog and see them work properly... no matter how long it takes! Good luck with your new venture. Your quilts are beautiful.

  4. I enjoyed visiting your Etsy store. Good luck on this new endeavor!

  5. Congratulations on stepping out with Etsy. My best wishes to you. :o) What a wonderful job, to repair old quilts, can't you just imagine the dear ladies who put them together? :o)
