I've not been too well today, and was expecting to skip yet another day of blogging and opt instead for curling up with a nice cup of comforting tea and some trash telly on youtube... when I logged out of Etsy after adding a new listing and saw this:
My medium poppy got picked up by the robot that looks for "knockout" listings to rotate at the top of the Etsy homepage! Eeeeeeeeee! So exciting, and so unexpected as I didn't think any of my images really counted as proper "knockout" white backgrounds. That one was just an accident of a very sunny day!

I am going to do a small happy dance now. And then go watch me some youtube...

UPDATE: My poppy design is now available as a sewing pattern! Visit my shop to see all my printable PDF patterns

wow - well done! I'd wondered how those little pics got there.

*joins in happy dance*

Yay I noticed your poppy there earlier. :D Yay!

It does seem to be really random. I've had three images up there, two of them were up there at the same time as well! Was kinda funny seeing them next to each other at times. :P

Isn't it amazing how those little things bring such excitement to our lives, even if for just a moment or two? Very cool!

Congrats! Does it stay up there all day?

SewBettie - I think they stay up for weeks sometimes! I often seem to see the same ones over and over... it will be interesting to see how long it's up there for & if it affects my shop :)
