Home Sweet Home is a best seller in the large and small kits.
A customer asked me to do a smaller version of "To my Dear Sister".....so I did the pattern this morning and two hours of stitching later....yes they only take 2-3 hours to stitch.....
This morning I also did a pattern for The Sewing Parlour and The Stitching Parlour. I will find some time to squeeze in the stitching for those two. This week has been nothing but custom mottoes and I need to get back to the floss. I also need to stain a dozen small frames later today. The kit and frame is $46 and I will list them soon.
Are you feeling the pinch of the postal rate increase? It was bad enough that the post office raised their rates....but ebay threw a wrench in the mix that has me furious. They used to give us sellers a shipping discount on the small first class packages. It was $2.54 for 1-3 ounces and with our discount (that I passed right on to my customers) it was $2.04. And believe me. I have had customers complain when they purchase one skein of floss at $2 and postage was $2.04. I tell them that a dozen skeins can ship for the same price. Anyways, now ebay is no longer giving us the discount on 1-3 ounces. So a 1 ounce package costs $2.60 to mail! This (I hope) will really hurt ebay as I know it will hurt all sales on the smaller items. Greed is a sad thing....and we all pay in the long run. Sorry...but I needed to vent. I doubt that they will ever reverse their decision but one can only hope.
Back to work.....lunch break is over and I have a schedule that will keep me busy until 10 tonight.
Thanks for stopping by!
