Needles Out

You'll never guess what I did yesterday. Yes, I knitted some more, but I also did some tatting. That's right, I actually picked up my needle and thread and made a couple of things. While I started out the day with knitting in between tasks like laundry and dishes, I was also racking my brain for ideas to get some sales in the shop. It had been almost two weeks since I had a physical sale. That's also one of the reasons I had not tatted anything in 10 days. So I settled on releasing an end of year coupon code, 'YEAREND'  and I made it good for 25% off anything over $10 in my etsy shop. It's only good through the 1st of the year, so please do share it if you think anyone would like to pick something up. But I digress, I listed the coupon code on my facebook page and was soon rewarded with a single sale from one of my most lovely repeat customers.

The order needed three out of four pieces made in custom colors, so I had a tatting task for the first time in days. These pictures are just two of them along with the arm warmer I am still knitting. I got all the pieces for the order done and I should have them in the post this morning. Then it's back to knitting, unless the coupon code discount lures some more sales in, which I really hope it does. Tatting again did not yet spark any new ideas, but at least it's good to know that I haven't forgotten how, or even lost any of my speed. I'm still shooting for a new year full of new ideas.
