As you know, I've been harbouring this little dream of opening an Etsy Shop and beginning to sell some of my stitchy creations again. Can you remember when I stitched the Attic24 banner and opened up shop?? It was waaaay back last year before Christmas.
Since then I've just not quite found a way to get new things made, although I have so many designs and ideas and scraps of paper with little drawings made on them. The will is there for sure.
Then earlier in the week I came across this little collection of textile pieces that I made some years ago :: such a surprise to find them again, to remember them, and discover how much I still feel about them, if you get that.
And I figured that maybe it might be a lovely idea to offer them for sale, kind of as a way for me to make my tentative steps towards setting up shop. A Little Shop of colourful Stitchy Goodness.
I have to tell you I am nervous! uh--huh. I mean, truthfully, I love these little pictures very much, they are so very me, and made with love and delight in every tiny stitch. Yet I would also love for them to find new homes! For each picture to be loved and cherished. Soppy so-and-so that I am.
You want to take a look?
I made this series of textile pictures originally with an idea to reproduce them as greetings card images.
There are seven altogether that I am offering for sale and I am selling them unmounted and unframed, just as they are. They can easily be popped into a frame to hang on the wall though, I think the Ikea RIBBA frames are excellent and there is a square one with a mount that would be just right.
They are quite dinky and measure 12.5cm (5 inches) square.
Do you like them?
I remember really, really having fun creating the designs and making them come to life with colour and stitch. I love working on this small scale, snipping the teeny tiny bits of fabric and stitching the teeny tiny stitches.
This above piece I made for a magazine article I wrote on applique, it measures 11 x 14cm.
You know you can click on the images to pop them up in a larger window....great to see the stitch detail....
....I especially love the the two seasidey ones, there's something so universally appealing about little harbours with cottages and boats.
So :: the details.
I'm selling each piece of work as seen (unmounted and unframed).
And I'm asking £38 for each, with free postage and packaging world wide. I don't know about you, but it niggles me having to pay P&P when buying things online, so I am more than happy to pay it for you by way of a Thankyou :o).
For US peeps, with the current exchange rate, this equals approx $62.
If you are interested in giving a home to a little bit of Attic24 Stitchy Goodness, please do email me and we can have a chatty about paypal stuff.
My email address is ::
I hope you don't mind me launching this at you, only I figured I'd love to offer them exclusively on the blog first before I put them into the Etsy Ocean.
I think I'll keep them here at Attic24 for a week or two, then into the shoplet they will go.
XXXXXXXXXX ALL PICTURES NOW SOLD ** THANK YOU** XXXXXXXXXX
Thanks so much for stopping by...have a fantabulous weekend one and all.
Me and BB are going to spend a considerable amount of time snuggling and smooching on the sofa this weekend. I am quite beside myself.
edited to add :: please don't in any way feel bad if you are not in a position to give a home to one of these pictures right now, I SO understand. But I'm hoping that I'll be able to go on to make some more bits and pieces, including some smaller ones at a lower price. Thanks again for all the support and enthusiasm you show for my creations, it means so much.xx
