Business mostly. Some kids' stuff - just normal life.
On Monday, I had a booth at a local private school - they have a Farmer's Market. I don't usually do farmer's markets, it is not really my customer base, but I did as good in the 2 hours there as I did for a whole weekend at the last show. Not killing it, but still. The stuffed animals were a BIG hit - I almost sold out.
|This was my booth.|
|The new tote bags I am offering.|
|I often do very bright and then more conservative.|
However, I did this show by myself. We planned our set up for inside shows, so the outside gigs are a little rough, but it worked. BUT, since I was by myself, I had to set up and break down alone - that tent is HEAVY!!! It is not an EZ Up Tent. Looks nice and shady there, but at the end, I was in full sun on concrete. I almost passed out. It was ugly. I did not drink enough the day before, the morning of or during. I had not eaten much either. Bad combination. I learned my lesson. The temps were at 95 on that concrete reflecting the sun back up on me. It was awful. A guy came and helped me, but it took a while for me to feel ok to drive.
Then yesterday, I felt like I had a hangover - it was from the heat I know. So, I did not get too much done. Today, I need to rock it out!
1.Finish making the backing for a quilt. I cut it wrong, so there is some work involved.
2. Sandwich said quilt and pin baste, ready for quilting
3. Make a Robot Peek-a-boo stuffie. It is for a photo shoot, so the deadline is today!
4. Send jpg of a monogram for approval.
5. Cut tote bag fabrics and interface them - ready to sew together tomorrow.
If I can get that done - I will be golden! It is very doable, if I get myself in gear. Slow going this morning - enjoying the coffee.
