Yesterday was the second Farmer's Market at Thanksgiving Point. I am exhausted. I am also building up quite a savings account. I began with over 20 aprons. I now have 10. I am running out of inventory, fast! My Crocheted Critters and Produce Pals are nearly gone. What's a gal to do?
*I have exactly 10 days until my carpal tunnel release surgery.
*I leave tomorrow afternoon with Dee and Richard for a few days in and around Yellowstone where we will meet up with Dee's parents.
*That leaves six days of sewing until my right hand is out of commission for a few weeks.
Here's the plan:
1. Cut out as many apron pieces as I can.
2. Sew as many apron pieces as I can.
3. Leave the rest to Diana and maybe Gena and my mother if they want to help. (Did I mention they are coming to help me post-surgery?)
4. Crochet my little fingers off every evening. (OH! Just wait until you see the Halloween-y things I am making!)
The bottom line is that I have found the market for the aprons. They did dismally at the Bliss Boutique until I took special orders for Christmas (NOT doing that in December ever again).Ladies coming to the Bliss Boutique are looking for jewelry, amazing hand bags, and darling, trendy clothing. People coming to the Farmer's Market are looking for handmade, unique, and fun. I have had the best time meeting them!
I am creating a new blog to show what aprons I have available for immediate purchase and what ones I can make on custom orders. It may be another week before it is ready. Or maybe longer...
