Default Cross stitch items

I've been cross stitch sewing for about 25 years now, and never expected to sell anything. However, I believe "never say never" is a very good expression to live by, don't you?! I have some trivets and coasters that I thought were cute and I have a purpose behind wanting to make some extra cash. My daughter's boyfriend is a music education major at university, but he's also in a band (bass player) that wants to make a full length CD to sell. Because they are not signed to a record label this is expensive, so I thought I'd help out our Mike and see if I could make some extra money for his share of the recording.

I have one each of the trivets made and a set of the coasters. I was thinking $25 for a trivet and $25 for the set of coasters, with a couple dollars added for postage. The trivets are 6" square and the coasters are about 3 1/2". Each blank trivet costs me $7, and each coaster is $2, so I'm not really making much, this is just for fun and to help the kids out. If there's enough interest I'll take orders, and if there's no interest - I have a huge jump on my Christmas gifts for this year! So, without any more gabbing on my part, here they are:

I don't have paypal; however, the kids do, so if this looks like anyone wants one I can get their information or I can take a check or money order.

I thought someone might be interested in hearing the band Mike is in. These are older recordings before he became a member, so "naturally" they sound better now!

I've finished the set of dragon pictures minus the trivets for Shalyn and also did up a set of the cat pictures without the coasters. If someone would like the cats I was thinking that the first one to "shout" can have them for $15 for the set. Not sure I can go that low all the time, but first time buyers should get a 'special' rate, I think!

Items were received in absolutely lovely shape last week. Many apologies for not saying anything sooner - I am still unpacking and moving from one place to the other.

They are so beautiful. I will now search for something to mount them on so I can display them!

I'm sorry to say that at least for the moment I will have to take the dragons and cats "off" the for sale table. I won't be around for quite a while and it would not be fair to have someone request something and me not see the request. I'm glad you like them, Shalyn.

Your work is fabulous Priscilla. I hope you can sell more in the future. I wish I had gotten here sooner!
