Christmas is almost here.......

Craft shows ended in October. Thankfully Etsy orders picked up in November and December. It's been a pretty good fall season, considering the economy.

I've been busily making more adult 'guy' aprons. Looks like there alot of last minute shoppers out there!

Fall and Christmas creating time......

In full swing making items for fall craft shows.... I am only listing a fraction of items on Etsy. The table runners really don't show their full potential online. There are around 50 completed so far. I have more aprons to create as well.

I woke up this morning to happy email. This runner is posted in a lovely blog! Check it out...

Hoping my sewing machine decides to work normally today. The stitch length has not been working the way it should.

Windy WINDY Day......

Well, the June Father's Day festival was pretty much a wet and windy mess. I was signed up only for the second day...thank goodness. Day one was a soaker. The second was a "Hold down the tent" day! I was unable to have a good portion of my inventory out to sell. Large fabric items were just big sails...not big sales!

I have been reminded once again .... outside shows are not for me! Off I go to fill out the fall INDOOR show apps...........

I just signed up for a festival Father's Day weekend. Until then I'll be hoping and crossing fingers that the weather will be nice! My inventory is low, so I had better get crackin........

The past month has been pretty good for sales. I'm still not sure which direction I'll be going in next (for new items). Check out my ETSY store!!
