Time for a closeup

Image
Hi All.  Life’s been a little hectic.  Working a wee bit more as a waitress so I’m not listing quite as often.  I am still making a commitment to myself and my customers to share closeups of my current listings which is what I’m doing today.  One of my favorite winter scene ornaments.  Red curtains in the windows, red bows on the trees and white snowflakes which are French knots.  Winter scenes ares some of my favorites but I love to do anything with French knots.  They are my yang to my yang and details just thrill me.  Don’t forget the closeups are an exaggerated look at the pictures the ornaments, t are pretty and dainty and detailed in their simplicity in person.  I will be sharing more ornaments soon and will also have new listings.  Drop me a line if you’d like to see something specific. This beautiful ornament can be found by clicking on this link.https://etsy.me/2NYlytR

New Etsy Shop Description

Image
Welcome to my Etsy Shop. I am a hand embroidery artist/fiber artist.  I have been hand embroidering almost all of my life since my grandmother taught me when I was five years old.  I started selling my work when my son was two, when a friend admired my work and told me I should be selling it.  That was 25 years ago.  At first I did craft fairs and sold my work in stores.  I made hand crocheted christening outfits, baby clothes, and hand embroidered pillows and ornaments which I had hand drawn and hand embroidered.  Because I hand draw all my embroidery work all of my pieces are one of a kind.  At that time I lived on Long Island and had a nice mix of stores that I worked with and private customers.  About 15 years ago I moved to upstate NY and found my artistic side.  I found myself joining an artist coop and creating things I had never imagined I was capable of.  I’ve done craft fairs, have my work in a wonderful artisan market, several stores, have been featured in several group sho…

Autumn in Upstate New York

Image
I love autumn in Upstate NY.  The trees, the bright colors, the apple cider donuts and cooler temperatures to embroider in.  I needed a little break from the heart ornaments and wanted to make a colorful, French knot laden project.  What better project than a lovely autumn tree.  I’ve only just begun but looking forward to some time with my needles and thread and maybe some leaf peeping to inspire me.  Looking forward to the reveal on Etsy see you soon.  You can see other autumn inspired hearts and ornaments, festive enough to put on your Christmas tree.  www.etsy.com/shop/debstangledstitches

Hearts Were Meant To Give Away

Image
Hi All!  Been busy making and adding to my Etsy shop.  It’s ornament time so I have to start focusing on Christmas ornaments.  Not that most of my listings haven’t been ornaments but I’ve been focusing on the artistic aspect of them.  Now I have to focus a bit more on the Christmas aspect.  A lot of my ornaments are designed to display year round so in my outlets in the real world I sell them year round and try to keep them generic enough so that people see them as little pieces of art to display all year round.  That continues even until Christmas but people have their favorites which they buy year after year often buying them for gifts.  Up close and personal you can see with your eyes that they are all different, but on Etsy I’ve been listing them one at a time.
I make them the way I do because I love them.  I make little stocking ornaments too but they are strictly Christmas ornaments.  I make pillows which I may try again but mainly at this moment I am known for my hearts and my f…

Sets

Hi All!  I’m trying something new on my Etsy shop.  Sets?  At the moment this is my only set but if I see some nice stats I will probably do it more often.  I’m looking for some feedback on this one.  One type of ornament such as the three cats and their Christmas gifts or different ornaments bundled together?  There is a discount on the sets $2.00 on each ornament and shipping remains the same so there is a discount on that too.  Please let me know what you think on this one.  Thank you for reading.
