My Etsy shop opens for business...


Another day at the computer,  the sewing machine is sulking but, at long last...(drum roll)


I have opened my Etsy shop! 




I've been making quilts since I was a teenager. Over the last 20 or so years I've tried traditional quilts, hand sewn quilts, appliqued quilts, simple quilts, complicated quilts and random quilts. I like making the random ones, maybe because I like an instant result more than a hand sewn masterpiece. Then again, I could just get straight to the point & admit that I'm impatient!

Every member of my family has at least one, if not two, quilts. I've started to give them away as presents and yet still I make them...Mr TH has lost track of them, our laundry cupboard is groaning!




This is my current favourite as it's full of promise for the upcoming season...






Then I was inspired by a pile of tea towels so I created a striped one...










Then I spotted some chicken material & couldn't resist...


Nor could my sister, she snaffled it before it got to Etsy...



In total, I have listed 4 quilts on Etsy in my Thrifty Household shop.  I'm pretty new to this so have been fretting over pricing & posting & policies & everything...  What do you think?

The quilts are beautiful - I recognize one or two fabrics from my own house (have you been scampering round my back door?)! I just came over from Silverpebble to say hello - hope you do well in your shop and your blog, which I am sure that you will.

Welcome to Blogland. I have learned to sew and crochet this year and couldn't have done it without people to cheer me on. I'm having a giveaway at the moment (nothing as amazing as a quilt, but still...). Claire

Hello - your quilts are lovely! Pricing is a nightmare that I've avoided through never making anything good enough to sell... In your case, the quilts are clearly excellent, so all I can suggest is that you browse other quilt sellers on Etsy and try for something comparable - but I bet you've already done that and it wasn't as easy as it sounds.

Anyway, welcome to the blogging world! I'll be back. Pop over to my blog for a giveaway if you like books...

Very impressed with the leap in to Etsy, not something I have ventured to do yet.
These quilts are quite fabulous.
Good luck with it all.
