Craft Fair Tomorrow

It’s been a while since I’ve gotten to post.  We had a wonderful vacation in Vermont, even if it was a bit chilly and the wifi was a bit sporadic.  It was actually nice to disconnect for a bit.   Especially knowing how busy we were going to be when we got home.

It is time for our first craft fair of the season.  It is a new one to us.  It is set in a park around Argyle Lake in Babylon, L.I. and the weather looks to be pretty nice now that Dorian has gone on it’s merry way.  We had rain yesterday and now it is a nice, sunny day and it should be the same for tomorrow’s fair.

Needless to say, the sewing and embroidery machines have been humming.   Here is a peek at what’s been coming out of the sewing room these last couple weeks:

I think I am going to need a bigger basket.

So, if you are in the Long Island, NY area tomorrow, head over to Babylon and check out the Argyle Lake craft fair.   There will be so many wonderful vendors there and the weather will be beautiful so come and take a stroll around.  Stop by our booth (A117) and say hello.  We’d love to see you.

Time to start packing things up and getting everything organized and the items on the checklist checked off.  Wish us luck.

Bye for now.   Have a wonderful weekend.

‘Tis the Season

What season you might ask?

The Fall craft fair season.  And the workshop officially opened today.   The cutting department (aka, Hubby) had his rotary cutter and rulers all ready and before long he had piles of 10″ squares ready to hand off to the sewing department (aka, Me!) and  then he switched his attention to some layer cakes.  No, not the eating kind, the 10″ squares of fabric kind.  Shortly thereafter, he had those 10″ squares cut down to 5″ squares that will become zigzag tablerunners in a few days.  20190813_134235.jpg

In the meantime, I was kept busy as the 10″ squares were cut and ready for adding batting.  Those batting squares were cut by my very efficient cutting department last week.20190813_134224.jpg

When the cutting department was finished with all that was on his workbench for today, he left the workshop for a bit of a break.  I felt the need for a bit of background music 20190813_144504.jpg  So I enlisted the help of the entertainment department (aka, my ipod).  Anyone care to make a guess as to what type of music was playing.  Here’s a hint:Elf

Well, as Scarlett O’Hara was famous for saying “Tomorrow is another day.”  But I won’t be heading to Tara;  I will be heading back to The Workshop.   We have three craft fairs lined up right now with two more on the “maybe” list.

Are you working on any projects for the fall or maybe some Christmas gifts?  Anyone doing any craft fairs?   I’d love to hear about what is keeping you busy these days.

See you soon.  Bye for now.
