a sale!

i made my first sale on etsy! (this mini-scarf). it was bought by my friend barb so i don't know if it really counts, but it sure is nice not to be looking at that big fat "0" in front of number of sales! now it's a lean elegant "1".

i finished another scarf yesterday morning. i joined an etsy group of fibre artists called etsyFAST (fibre artist street team). they have an interesting forum of discussion (yesterday it was about the high cost of novelty yarns and why), and each month they set a team challenge or theme for the group. they've been working their way through the elements and this month is the last one "fire". here's my contribution:

these scarves are made of everything: handspun wool, silk, strips of recycled tshirts, acrylic, bamboo.

february's theme is "un-valentine" (kind of an unconventional love theme) and march is fairy tales - i can see getting excited about that one.

now back to my hooking...

Wow - they are very detailed and fabulously original. Looks like they took a LONG time to complete. :-)
