Had a Merry Christmas but it's over now and time to buy something for yourself. I have just listed a few novelty yarns on etsy that you might be interested in, and if not there are lots more there. I am having trouble getting it back up to 100 or more, which "they" recommend, but I am trying.

I just listed a pretty little eyelash in a seafoam grey, no label, but a typical Trendsetter Yarn eyelash, long silky lashes and very soft.

I also listed a Charm by Trendsetter Yarns, it is a multicolor with brown base and wine, blue and tan flags and chenille bits. Charm is a true novelty yarn, adds a bit of pizzazz to whatever you knit.

Christmas is Coming and your tree is naked without these.

Well, I just reactivated my sallycrafts store on etsy, I plan to add some craft supplies to destash, but right now it is just my ooak lightbulb ornaments, just what your tree needs, or better yet give this unique gift to someone else. I have been making and selling them for 10 plus years and they sell pretty well. Check them out at for more.

Oops, must have been rushing and not paying attention as I did a promo for the Greek Team, not that I have anything against them, but I am italian, and I was trying to promote the ESST Etsy Supply Street Team, and all it's awesome members so let's try again


Cyber Monday Hoping for Sales

Well, it is cyber monday and as usual it snuck up on me, but I managed to list 5 new novelty yarns on my threadsinthebed store, 4 from Trendsetter, Joy, Charm, and 2 eyelashes, and a novelty from Laines du Nord called Portofino which is adorable.

I also renewed some buttons and beads in my buttonsbanglesandweeds store, since I haven't been in my stash down here to find new ones. Anyway, check out all the Team ESST Cyber Monday promos on I am on page 9, but check everyone out, the supply sellers on etsy supply street team are the best and I will admit I do as much buying as I do selling.

I haven't been blogging lately as personal situations have interfered with my life. Mom passed Oct. 24th and life has been so different. I don't mean to make this sad, because she was 91 and lived a long and beautiful life, Dad passed in March 2009 so they are together again. She told her nurse in April that she wanted to stay around and play bingo and watch movies with her, but she wouldn't make it to her next birthday, which would have been Nov. 7th.

I have been neglecting my two etsy stores lately, had to put them on "vacation" and am finally
starting to list items again. Have added some lovely new destash from my yarn mountain on my and some buttons and beads have also been added to my store. Check them out. I also have found a huge amount of novelty yarns to list including many Trendsetter, Crystal Palace and lots of other "name brand" yarns.

I am very proud to be a member of the ESST, Etsy Supply Street Team, and both stores are
included. Check out the etsy supply team blog at for many
etsy stores selling all sorts of supplies. I will try to be more diligent in my posting.

EtsyFAST Team September Challenge

I just entered my first woven shawl in the September Challenge - Songs - for the EtsyFAST team (Fiber Arts Street Team). I wove it on my Knitters Loom that I bought myself for Christmas last year and it took a while but I am so pleased with how it came out. Measuring 14" wide by 68" long, 88" with the 2 10" fringes, it is lightweight and colorful. So what else could the song be but Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors. Now, I need to see if I can insert a photo or two here. If not click on my etsy store threads in the bed.

This weekend, Sept. 5 and 6, the Etsy Supply Street Team is sponsoring the Weekend Extravaganza for September, and all Etsians are invited to join in, not just supply sellers, but also handmade and vintage. My etsy store ThreadsintheBed will be adding new novelty yarns for the occasion, and I have just begun listing vintage buttons in my Buttonsbanglesandweeds
etsy store. Please check out Etsy and the TeamESST threads to add your comments. Sally

Rainy Day Fun

Whoppee, another rainy day in Connecticut. I am actually OK with it because I plan to add a few new destash items to my etsy stores, and line some handbags that I have been knitting lately. It is so easy to knit them, and such a pain to have to finish them. Sad huh? My new line of Allegria Bags are almost ready to list. Allegria means happy and cheerful in Italian, and since that is my heritage, my new line of handbags will be called Allegria. Fun and colorful, check them out in a few days on my threadsinthebed etsy site.

I have listed a few beads in my buttonsbanglesandbeads etsy store, but have only just finished getting the buttons ready so they will be added there this weekend (crossed fingers) as well. Thanks for checking me out.

Finally It's Done

So happy, I just entered my blog on the EtsyFAST team blogroll and hopefully can start showing my team members as followers. I do think perhaps I made a mistake calling my first post Virgin Blogger's. I hope I don't get a bunch of perverts, but won't they be disappointed when all I have to offer is yarn, beads, buttons, button jewelry and handmades. Well, just a little celebration that I actually did it.

Virgin Blogger's First Post

Well, I started this last Saturday, and many problems with google and blogger caused my first blog, ButtonsandThreads to disappear, so my mama didn't raise no dummies, it only took me a week to realize that I could start a new blog and name it ThreadsandButtons, and have the same things as the other one, but actually have a blog someone could find (I hope). So wish me luck and I will be entering my blog on the EtsyFAST team blogroll and hopefully adding you all as my followers.
