Open For Business

It started out so innocently...I made a few cute aprons for my girls for Christmas. I made some for their friends, and for some shower gifts. People started telling me how darling they were so I sold a few on Etsy, then a dozen or so at a local boutique. Now I have a daughter working at Thanksgiving Point and she has encouraged me to set up a booth at the Thanksgiving Point Farmer's Market.  I will be there for the next two Fridays, and the first two Fridays in September. My room looks like a fabric store exploded but with lots of help from Dee, Nick, Diana, Rachel, and Brittany it's all coming together!


My creative juices started flowing a few months ago and I have made some really cute pennat/bunting flags for parties and special occasions. I have also crocheted myself into a carpel tunnel surgery later this month (really). Wish me luck!


The kids wanted to stage as "faux" set-up last night. (I think they are having fun!)


I have to run! I have more sewing to do to get ready for this thing. I have a few aprons to finish and some table cloths to make. I'll let you know if I survive!
