I'm SO excited!!!

I sold my first Etsy item!! It was the green crocheted scarf. I can't wait to put some more stuff on there. (For those of you that don't know what Etsy is, it is kind of like Ebay except only for handmade stuff.)
Sorry I haven't posted lately we've been really busy lately. We had the MHEA Banquet and then the Graduation. It was really sad watching my friends walk across the stage. I am working on a denim tote bag, my machine was messing up so I haven't been able to finish it. If you are sewing on denim, USE A DENIM NEEDLE!! Otherwise you'll end up thinking your machine is hopelessly broken. I cut out fabric for a blue blouse last night, and "E" cut out blue fabric for a shirt (not really a blouse). We are going to work on that at the sewing class today.
I think we are going to clean the house all day, since we are having people over tomorrow to can some strawberry jam with us. We already took a ton of stuff we don't use anymore to goodwill. (by a ton of stuff I mean the bed of Dad's truck was full, and there's still a little bit more stuff)

Cool! I thought about doing that, and selling crafts. But I didn't think people would buy anything. Don't you have to pay for every item you put on there?

Congrats on the sale! I know it was a while ago, but still, that's really exciting. Thanks for the denim sewing needle tip...I'm a bit wary of using thick fabrics with my machine, but it sounds like the needle should really help.
