Recently listed needlework!!

Wow!  These are so pretty!  Take a look at what I recently listed on eBay for my friend Linda.  She's been cross stitching for over 20 years!  Here lately she's been stitching up a bunch of beautiful breadcloths.  For a better look, please visit my eBay store at: =]

OMGosh.... these stockings are absolutely gorgeous!  I am selling these for my new customer (SH) which stands for Stephanie's Heirlooms.  Maybe some of you recognize these??  They are all from the covers of Cross Stitch & Country Crafts magazines back in the 80's.  Stephanie has been stitching for over 40 years, her work is perfect!  I would definitely classify her as a "Professional Needleworker" - LOL!
see them here

AND... She has also given me 2 beautiful "Lavender & Lace" angels - you have GOT to check them out!

Please contact me with any questions.  These auctions will END on Sunday the 31st around 9:30(ish) pm EST.  My eBay store:

Yeah!  I figured out how to put all mom's wonderful knit & crochet pattern leaflets into a "PDF" file format.  2 are finished (Amazing Star Afghans, and Mile-A-Minute Baby Set), and I have a bunch more to do.

Pick-out your favorites - and send me an email with the titles of the one's you'd like to purchase... and I will send you an invoice through PayPal (Don't worry, I accept personal checks and money orders too!)  When it is paid... I will email you your new PDF patterns!

So where can you view all these wonderful patterns? 

eBay store:
Etsy store:
Bonanza booth:

If you have any questions (or would like to place an order) send me an email to:

Take care!

Guess what???

I am so excited to share with everyone that I recently opened up a shop of Etsy!  YAY!  I kept the same name "QueenOfAllCrafts" - figured that would be easiest.  And, everyone would know it's "ME"

There's a link at the top right-hand corner of my blog... or you can find it here...

Not ALL my customers I realize are "eBayers" so I'm thrilled that I can also offer mom's knit & crochet patterns (along with other fun needlework) BESIDES eBay.

Have a wonderful day everyone.

Finally! I can work again! Still no stitching yet (sigh) But I have GREAT news to share! =]

Ok... first off (for those that read about my horrible hand-burning accident a
while back)... my poor little fingers have healed nicely. Only my middle finger
blisters broke. OUCH! The bandages are off now - YAY and it's back-to-work for
me. Which is exactly why I'm writing you all this post. I have wonderful news to
share! Read on...

While I was on my little unwanted vacation... I received box after box of

BEAUTIFUL needlework goodies from peeps all over the US!! I am just so grateful,
and feel so blessed to finally be able to take my biz to the next level! Believe
it or not... I have been running my new "internet run" business for a little
over a year now WITHOUT the INTERNET!! CRAZY... I know! But, for 1, computers
ARE expensive, and 2... my new "biz" is just that... a business. Internet and
phone hook-ups are OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive for business's. 

(For those who aren't sure what I'm talking about... I have turned my eBay store into a "Needlework Consignment Shop", basically... if you have too much needlework, and not enough time... I can sell your items on eBay for you! If you
go to my eBay store below, and then click-on the "consignment shop info" tab...
everything is explained how it works there. Including my commission scale)

When my hubby got laid off about 2 years ago... that's when I got serious about
helping others on consignment. I KNOW there are lots more peeps out there just
like me who have yarn, kits, patterns, mags etc... that you just don't need or
want any more. For Pete's sake... don't sell your treasures in a yard sale for
PENNIES... Let ME sell it for you. =]

But here's the thing.... (I'm sooo excited I can hardly stand it!!) Since I

learned about these needlework groups on yahoo... I have gained quite a few NEW
customers, who want ME to sell their needlework treasures for them on eBay!!!!
And let me just say... these wonderful peeps are not sending just one or two
items... oh no! They are being delivered to me by the BOX LOAD!! I can't wait to
show you all my new inventory!! I now have lots of finished cross stitch pieces,
a HUGE amount of Perle Cottons (I'm talking about 5 skeins each of about... 350
different colors!!) plus loads of HAND PAINTED needlepoint canvas's, tons of beautiful cross stitch patterns and books, wool yarns/threads, and SO MUCH MORE! 

So.......... (I'm gloating, I know! he he!) Thanks to having the most WONDERFUL
PARENTS IN THE ENTIRE WORLD.... (who just celebrated their 48th anniversary...)
I now have a new computer with BUSINESS internet and phone at my office!!!!


So, now that my hands have healed, and don't sting anymore... I'll be working

diligently this weekend taking pic's of all the new needlework goodies. I'll be
posting photos on my blog soon. I'll let everyone know when it's done.
I hope you ALL have a wonderful Easter!! I am so blessed that almost my entire
family is right here in Newark, Ohio! Everyone meets at mom and dad's for
dinner, thank goodness they have a large enough house... my brother, sister and
I all have children ranging from 6 - 22! I can't wait to see everyone!

Take care all!



PS: Some of you may see this post on other needlework groups... I don't think I

want to type it again - LOL! Thank goodness for copy & paste =]

OMG! I did the dumest thing last night!! OUCH!

I did the dumbest thing while making dinner last night! OK.... here goes... I turned the oven on for chicken breasts... laid the chicken on a cookie sheet (which was setting on the front burner), then I started some frozen corn and put them on the BACK burner (put it on high to boil).... fiddled around for a while till the oven beeped it was ready.... went to put the METAL cookie sheet in the oven............. and realized (as my hand is searing in excruciating pain!!!) that I accidentally turned on the FRONT burner!!!!!  OUCH!!!!  Let me just say.... it hurt soooooo bad! I do believe it was worse than giving BIRTH!!!  And, sadly.... I didn't just "touch" it, I picked it up!!!!  Yikes!!

YES!  I'm fine now, my fingers are completely wrapped.  Well... accept for my pinky... somehow my pinky survived this horrible ordeal - LOL!   My hubby (God love him!) took off to CVS Pharmacy, spoke with pharmacist, and they recommended this "silver" salve stuff.  And he asked her (after he told her what I did, of course)... "If YOU burnt the Hell out of YOUR hands... is this what YOU would use?" she said "YES!"  So, he bought it, and it works... although the pain is gone (thank you, God!) I cant actually USE my right hand  :(  YIKES!

(LOL... this is taking me forever to type)

Let me also say..... LESSON LEARNED!!!  I will ALWAYS double-check now!  And... THANK GOD it was ME and NOT Ben!!!!!  I'd never forgive myself!  I know accidents happen, but... OUCH!!!!!
