purse crazy

Right now I have seven appliqued purses to bring to Lebanon. I have a week and a half... maybe I make one more. I'm thinking cherry blossoms. Joe's dad is building me a coat rack type stand to display them. I can't wait to post a picture of my booth.

new head day!

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.

crazy craft binge

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.

a couple of applique pieces

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.

Labor day weekend

I tied up a bunch of loose ends this weekend. I'm tired now.
