Pattern


I have wanted to open an Etsy shop for a very long time. The shop is even ready to go, with no items listed...yet.

It has been agonizing for me to find that ONE thing I want to sell. Just a few small weeks ago I came to a realization, I don't have to sell ONE thing. I can sell as many different creations as I can dream up. And so I will.

My other hang-up has been brainstorming ideas that have never, ever been done before. Another thing I have had to let go. I am putting my own unique "Harmony" into my creations and that makes them original in their own right.

I know I am on the right path with one of my products, I have made 7 of them in the past week. I am passionate and on a roll. I dug out my vintage book of crochet stitches and I am using them to make my own patterns. My shop is going to open in 8 days - May 15th. That is scary to write, but now I have to do it because there it is!

The pictures is my response to the prompt pattern over on the Focus on Everyday blog. Click here to see the pictures from the other contributors.
