I finished a red scarf to go with the hat I posted earlier. They are modeled by the lovely new styrofoam head I ordered off of eBay. I'm not completely convinced that this head is going to go along with me to the craft fair. A good gust of wind would send this thing flying. I'm still considering one of those creepy cosmetology practice heads for displaying hats and scarves.

Today was my day off. I still feel a little stressed. I spent the entire day making stuff. October is coming fast and I also applied for another huge craft fair the first week of November. I'm in over my head and am trying to dig my way out. I liked the way my royal blue clutch turned out and made four more. I also made another hat on my knifty knitter. Start to finish. Then I was planning on making some beaded brooches. I did finish one, but my seed bead supply is dwindling. I put in an order for more. The rest of the night, I spent on the couch with some sock knitting. I think I burned myself out. That's why I'm blogging right now. This weekend Joe said I'm OCD. I think he might be right.
I'm trying to stick to nature type themes with my applique bags. I'm afraid the purple one might be a little to springy for the fall craft fair. Whatever. I still dig the bamboo handles. I was surprised at how easy they were to install. I call the red/blue one sunset. I got to the end of it and realised that I didn't add a closure to the flap... the button was an afterthought.

I get the chance to sell my stuff next month! I have so much work ahead of me. Here are the first couple of pieces I have made specifically for the show. Much more to come. I'm hoping to come up with something new every day. Wish me luck.
