More updates here at the blog




I've been working on the blog this past week adding pages and new graphics. I've changed the red for blue and bordered posts. The page tabs are new, too. Now instead of going to one of the web sites you can just look at the links here.

Look to the right of the page for links to my stores, places that sell my patterns, galleries, and more. The link to the search, translate, and blog archive are on this side, too.

Look to the left for the links to my mirror web sites, a quick link to my etsy store, a featured post,  and blog labels to make searching the blog easier.

New Crochet Pattern at Etsy




I finally finished a new crochet pattern. It's similar to the lucky penny crocheted shamrock I designed but this one is perfect for brides. I designed this flower to hold a coin for brides who wear sandals or other shoes that can’t hold a lucky coin. 

Think how special it would be to make one for a bride with 2 pennies in it. One with her birth year and one with the grooms. Or how about the year they met or got engaged and the year of the wedding. 

Make them with wedding year pennies for gifts to give to the Moms and Bridesmaids. You could also make them for shower favors. There are plenty of photos and I even include directions on cleaning the coins. I've kept the price low because I'm only selling it as a PDF, meaning you have to download it and print it yourself.

Right now it's only at Etsy but as soon as I start selling at ebay again I'll list it. I took the summer off from selling at ebay but I'll be getting things back up there this week.

New Look for Blog!

Ok, I went to Go Daddy to try to fix the Plesk problem and now my domain name of heislerscreativestitchery.com should send you all here to this blog instead of a page where you choose which of my 2 mirror sites you want to try going to.

Finger's crossed it works! I used to be really good at writing code for web sites and knowing what to do to get everything running correctly but got away from it when yahoo shut down all the geocities sites. I had 4!

If you look to the left you'll see graphics that link to both of the mirror sites. Right now I don't know what's going on at tripod lycos but I haven't been able to access it all day so it's a good thing the webs site is still up. This is why I'm really considering adding pages here with pics of my patterns so you'll see what all I have for sale at etsy and other places on the web.

Keep watching for more updates!

Web sites may be hard to get to...

Ok, here's the problem, My domain is thru GoDaddy cause they offered really good prices and free web sites when all of us left yahoo after they got rid of their free sites.

 Last year GoDaddy gave up free web space and gave their customers 1 year free with Plesk. My year ended on the 11 so I have to make a decision on whether to put the opening page at my webs or tripod site or link the domain to this blog. As always I can't decide so until then www.heislerscreativestitchery.com may not work. Instead try:

http://heislerscreativestitches.webs.com/index.html
or
http://creativestitchery.tripod.com/index.html

Sorry for any probs this causes any of you.
