More Saturday in the Country

Here's a picture of the table runner that I had laid out before I left on Wednesday. 

 

When I came back to it last night, there was something about it that I didn't like.  It was okay, and sometimes okay is okay, but I wanted this one to sing and dance.  So it was back to the drawing board.  I started playing around with the squares and came up with this design.

 

I had never used a design like this, but it spoke to me.  I left the squares laying out over night, and I still liked them this morning.  Here is a picture of the finished table runner.

I'm pleased with the way this one turned out.  I will be listing it for sale on eBay.  My cousin in Seattle told me about a web site, www.etsy.com, that sells handcrafted items only.  Has anyone had any experience with them?

  1. Hey Linda, There is a website for women entrepeneurs at http://www.theswitchboards.com. Several of those members use etsy as their craft selling site. You can also google reviews of etsy and success stories of etsy. Just saw another craft site called http://en.dawanda.com/ and I know nothing about this site. I am working on getting some things made and pictures taken to try etsy. There are etsy groups on vox. That might be a good place to start.Rainy here in Seattle.Debbie

  2. Thanks for the information. I'll check it out! I've been busy sewing since I got home yesterday. Have another runner laid out already to work on tomorrow. Since they are for Valentine's Day, I think I will list them on eBay. Holiday things seems to sell pretty well there. My denim runner with the appliqued hearts did really well.
    Good luck getting some things listed!
