I read the above clipping from grandma and it pretty much sums up what I’m aiming for in preparing my booth each year. I’m trying to present what folks are hunting for in either a gift, something they need, or just an item they haven’t seen before and maybe they just don’t want to go home empty-handed. Girls gotta shop right?! It would be sacrilegious to leave without Something. In case you’ve been sleeping, Christmas is on the way.
So do you wanna see what I was presenting this year? OH! I must mention after last week’s post on Inez’s Clippings– That vendor did not appear this year. And we were allowed to spread out our tables just a tad bit when the vendor beside us didn’t show up. Good times.
Before I give you the pictorial, a thank you needs to go out to Cole Camp for always delivering a superb Christbaumfest. A wonderful tradition that brings together the spirit of the season.
And last but not least, I have to thank my dear mother-in-law for buying my mini quilt and stand. And then leaving a lovely post on Facebook for all her acquaintances to read.
I have such a supportive (enabling lol) family and they even turn out to help us load our stuff at the end of the day (Barbi & Scott, Leslie & Tracy God Bless You!) Mother, Kirsten and I really appreciate each and every one that made our day a little brighter. Grandma Must be smiling down!!
It’s been awhile since I posted a crochet post. However, I’ve not been neglecting my creative duties. I finished the 2018 A to Z Challenge with a quilt top, began the Season of Yardwork and Gardening, did plenty of mending, got contacted to do some custom items, and finished the following little number for my Etsy shop. There’s never a dull moment at my house.
Just going to make one more of these in Pink and white before I dive into some other projects.
What’s next? With the heat of summer, I will most likely stick with small projects that won’t raise my temperature in Missouri’s humid months. Here are some Pinterest ideas I find enticing.
I highly encourage these motif centered ideas for my crochet friends along with a tall glass of lemonade while sitting on your porch. Don’t forget the fan!
This crochet needle is for thread work. Tiny stitches make for pretty lace.
For the Weekly Photo Challenge, I decided to go with the current project. It was finished Sunday evening on a special request order. It’s for an 18-month old little girl who I feel would also fit in the tiny category. I’m happy to say the customer was very pleased!
So I resisted the urge to photograph Chrome. Somehow the Trace Adkins song came to my head. And I really don’t like that song. No offense to his music or persona.
Anyhoo, here is my take on Monochromatic. This is one of my favorite creations that I have debated many times about selling. It takes 4 skeins of Homespun Yarn so most likely would cost someone a small chunk of change. Maybe you’d tell me if it stands a chance in the marketplace?
Am I allowed to ask questions in a photo challenge?
I’ve mentioned back in August how inspired I was by my Great Aunt Hattie. Here’s a refresher in case you missed it. I am extremely grateful and also elated by the review I received this past week on Etsy. I am humbled at the word ‘heirloom’. What a daunting task to make something of that caliber again. So the question looms….will I?
AWESOME!!!! I can’t imagine how much work went into this!! This looks fantastic on my dining room table. It brightens up the whole room!!! This will be an heirloom piece for sure!! Thank you for your creativity and workmanship!! This arrived promptly and very well packaged. Very pleased!! If I could give ten stars, I would!
