I've been working on granny squares.....lots and lots of granny squares. At first I was just thrilled that I finally figured out how to make them, but eventually I had so many that I had to make a blanket.

Today we laid them out and figured out the pattern for them

Now I just have to join them all....

Sigh of Relief

Well the show has passed, so I can breathe a sigh of relief and relax now. The turnout wasn't fantastic, but I think that was good for a first show. I was afraid of being overwhelmed with too many people. But I think for my very first show this was a good amount of people. I had read tons of horror stories from other sellers online, about rude customers and horrible booth neighbors. But I'm so happy that I didn't experience any of that. There was a sweet lady next to me who was selling wonderful handmade soap, so my booth smelled very nice. Overall I was happy with the experience. Of course it would have been great to make some more money, but I made back more than the table fee so I'm happy.

The show is tomorrow. I'm so nervous. When I signed up it felt like I had such a long time but now it's TOMORROW!!!!! I'm excited too of course.

I have lots of earrings, probably close to 100 pairs if not more, bracelets, necklaces, pendants, scrabble tiles, glass tiles, soda tab bracelets...and all the crochet items, face scrubbies, dish scrubbies, mouse cat toys, baby booties, blankets.

As long as I make the $30 table fee back I'm happy, but my goal is to make $100. Not too unreasonable I think for my first time. If this show is fun I will look into more shows in the future

I'll post some pictures of my table set up tomorrow

So pretty

A while ago I bought several BEAUTIFUL quartz briolettes, but I haven't been quite sure what to do with them. I didn't know if I wanted to incorporate them into larger pieces or just make earrings out of them. I decided to let these beautiful babies be their own focus and made simple wrapped earrings with them. It took me a while to really get the wrapping looking good.
