Can I write to my blog daily?

Hello. I want to write my blog with daily basis very long time. The problem is my English is not good. But I have to start to write, don't I? I have a lot of new projects. I want to share all of them with you. I will add new links, tutorials, free patterns etc. I also want to give free gifts to my readers.

I upgrade my Flickr account. I add my pictures from my Istanbul-Grand Bazaar trips. I went to Istanbul for my brother's wedding last October. I have change to go Grand Bazaar a few times. It's very special place.

The Grand Bazaar (or Covered Bazaar, Turkish: Kapalıçarşı ("Covered Bazaar")) in Istanbul is one of the largest covered markets in the world with more than 58 streets, over 1,200 shops, and has between 250,000 and 400,000 visitors daily. It is well known for its jewelry, pottery, spice, and carpet shops. Many of the stalls in the bazaar are grouped by type of goods, with special areas for leather coats, gold jewelry and the like. The bazaar contains two bedestens (domed masonry structures built for storage and safe keeping), the first of which was constructed between 1455 and 1461 by the order of Sultan Mehmed the Conqueror. The bazaar was vastly enlarged in the 16th century, during the reign of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent, and in 1894 underwent a major restoration following an earthquake.(From Wikipedia)

Buy Emery Grain for Emery Pincushion

The humble pincushion! This most basic of all sewing notions is a must-have for anyone who sews. You probably have one or two already, there are a hundred different styles and types. Some are crocheted, some made with felt, some filled with cotton or yarn, left over from other projects, perhaps, some of the them with polyester fiberfill. Whether you view them as an individual works of collectible art, a fun project to make and sell, or a necessary evil for all serious fabric crafters, seamstresses and quilters, just about everyone will agree, a pincushion (or three!) is a must-have.

You've probably seen that pincushion found in any store - the tomato with strawberry one. How did this come to be? A strawberry with a tomato? How very strange. Like many things in life, it's not what's on the outside that's important in this case. For years we've used the strawberry pincushion without realising its very important function. I can tell you here, and now, as a matter of fact, this strawberry pincushion has emery grain inside. Emery is a very hard rock and mixed with other species of mineral, it becomes extremely abrasive.

When you use this black mineral to fill your pincushion it becomes one of the best pincushions in all the world! Emery pincushion! Every time you stick your needle or pin into an emery pincushion, it cleans it of the natural oils in your fingers and any impurities in your cloth. It also sharpens the very tip of your needle, making your work quicker and easier on your hands. This pincushion has a lot of advantages! For example it's heavy. I hate to use lightweight pincushions! They jump around like a ball, turn upside down, needles fall out. Ever had a needle in the foot? I'm not saying you'll never drop a needle ever again, but if you put one in an emery pincushion, foot/needle accidents will certainly diminish in probability. It'll only be your own stupid fault, you won't be able to blame the pincushion. And another thing - this pincushion is very sturdy. It won't move around even on your sewing machine. 1 cup emery is 16 oz (1lb). For 2"x3" emery pincushion you need 1/4 cup emery pincushion. Of all of its qualities, the best thing is using it to keep your needles clean and sharp. If you sew silky fabric you can understand what I mean.
A good abrasive mineral is not just hard, it's also tough and sharp. It also must be plentiful (or at least widespread) and pure. My emery grain is natural, milled to the finest grade and mixed with the just the right blend of complementary minerals for pincushion use.
Your emery will arrive well packaged, in a tough Ziploc bag, contained in outer wrapping, labeled clearly and with usage advice. For example, I always recommend using an inner liner for your pincushion, so that if anything happens to your outer covering, the emery doesn't end up going everywhere. This is particularly important if you make and sell pincushions!
If you like to buy emery grain for make pincushion for you, for your friend or for sell you are in the right place! You can find 1/4, 1/2, 1, 2 and 3 cups of emery grain in my store. If you are buying larger quantities of emery grain for sale in your own store, for a small additional fee I can package and label smaller quantities within your order, just let me know in a convo or note to seller. The same goes if you need a different amount not currently listed in my shop, please feel to contact me.

Like I said earlier emery is heavy and I ship with USPS priority mail. Buy more than 1 cup and I'll charge you the same shipping cost as if you only bought one. The more you buy, the more you save on shipping - you don't pay for extra shipping! For international I can send up to 3 1/2 cup with same priority price and for domestic I can send up to 6 cups for the same price! I don't charge any handling fee for this item!

If you don't have time to make your own, you can check my store for ready to use emery pincushions. They're come in a presentation gift package!
