A Pretty New Coat

I found this pretty flannel, lined it with a coordinating polka-dot and here is my girl in her new coat! I had a saturday night date with my sewing machine, I have been dreaming of using this pattern for a few weeks.

Craft Show 2010

The craft show was awesome! I loved the positive response, I sold almost everything. I think after 5 years I am starting to get the hang of things. I made some major improvements to the display, using new green table cloths and all the black and white runners I made for a wedding last spring.
My friend, Jolene, was advertising her photography and we worked on some headbands and necklaces together. That made the day extra fun! She is wonderful to work (and play) with.
Also my sweet mom is in town and she always makes everything better. She was an A+ salesman. Thanks momma.
All the clothing items were new for me this year, and I was grateful that people liked them. I only had one dress left and it is my daughter's size. Perfect.
I am taking custom orders, so let me know if you need a crazy little ruffly outfit for your little one!

Mayo Craft Fair

I have been a little busy bee getting things ready for the Mayo Craft Fair this Saturday! This is a portion of the pile I have started to make in the middle of the floor of things I need to throw in the car on Friday afternoon... I hope I don't forget anything.
This year I am selling key chains, a few different types of headbands, baby blankets, bibs, onesies, bib necklaces and girl's outfits. I have found a lot of new gorgeous fabrics and it has been so much fun to work on all these projects. Some new and exciting items and some old stand-bys. For now I just have a billion details to finish. It has all been surprisingly low stress and quite enjoyable. I might have something different to say on Saturday night!
