fair days

Our annual craft fair at the Quaker Meeting is happening this Saturday.  Yesterday I spent the day pricing everything.   I haven't even gotten there yet and I'm sold out of a lot of things!

Last week my girlfriend spotted this wall hanging and purchased it on the spot:

Then there is my mother, who has a bit of a hoarder mentality at times.  She walked off with all my mug rugs yesterday before I even priced them.  I really loved the mug rug portion of my table (not shown because I was wiped out) so I'm madly making more.  Finished these two last night (fortunately I had the hand embroidered squares already done):

Next year I'll know not to show things to people before the fair!  Meanwhile I'm also off to another venue today to support a guild in Quakertown.  If you are free and are in Eastern Pennsylvania, check out the Keystone Quilters Show today or tomorrow!

It's a good sign that you're selling out of goodies before you even get to the show, but not so good for show day, lol! The embroidered mug rugs are cute - good luck today and tomorrow - I hope you sell everything! It'll be nice when the sale is over and things can calm down (just in time for Christmas crafting) :D

How funny! Of course, you would be worried if they didn't like what you had prepared!

Love the new blog look, Mickie! Not surprised you sold things before the show, that wall hanging is gorgeous. LOVE the mug rugs...what a great idea for vintage stitcheries!
