I am hoping that the new year will bring in changes for me. Like sales in my Etsy shop. I would like to be able to put money towards our mortgage, as sewing is the only job I can do with my back injury. I am also hoping that my body will finally settle down and release the extra weight, so that the back pain will lessen and I will be able to do more. :) Lastly, I hope that everyone has a safe, happy and healthy Happy New Year!!!

So I bought 1 yard each of 6 colours of silk and they came in today. Blue, green, yellow, purple, pink, and white all pastel colours. I needed the white for a specific outfit and couldn't find silk locally and I refuse to pay more for polyester silk. The first pic is all the glorious silk, the second is the fabric I am pairing together for outfit. I will also be adding beads and lace to complete it.

Having issues with finding silk around here, unless I want to cross the border and spend tons on each piece, not to mention the toll both ways on the bridge to and from the States, so hubby has told me to make an order! I ordered 6 yards of silk dupioni in 6 colors. I will do an unboxing, so I won't tell you what colors I ordered, but I will tell you that one of the colors is for a Little Darling outfit. :) Our local fabric store sold it before, then stopped, then started carrying it again, and now stopped as it wasn't selling. Joann's across the river sells it, but for a lot more than I can get it online. Don't get me wrong, whenever I can, I do shop locally. I don't want the stores to close and have to pay shipping for everything. But in this instance, where I can get 6 yards for the price of maybe 4, I am ordering online. Not to mention, 3 free samples of other fabrics, and lots more colors than anything I could find locally. I will do an unboxing on Youtube and post it here as well. I also just found out today that my Kaye Wiggs doll is in the process of being painted now, so hopefully she will be here before Christmas. If not, it will make an awesome late Christmas gift to myself. :)

Hello everyone. Just thought I would post this here. I have a Youtube channel (actually, I have 3), but the one I am posting here is going to be for sewing, dolls, unboxing, fabric hauls, bead hauls, and anything else with crafting. I am posting the link for the first video here and you can see what I look like. :) https://youtu.be/1AN8-NF2Syk
