Before & After

Today I went to the "Wilkesboro Open Air Market"
It's kinda like a street fair vs farmer's market.
You have old timer's there selling their garden goods, and some selling honey and 
homemade canned items, some selling fresh flowers.
Then you have oodles of crafts.
Becky from Sew in Stitches came several hours back to her home town
of Wilkesboro to sell her awesome goodies.

I picked my self up an vendor application and will start selling there.
They have produce and crafts every Friday from 4-8 through October,
and every 3rd Friday, they have a live band.
How cool is that?

The area is totally shaded. 
It actually felt very nice there this evening.

Sooo, I got to thinking (uh huh, yep crazy I know)
There are some things I could improve on.
See the below before and after and let me know what you think.
TJ is going to build me a earring display "thingy" for my earrings.

Remember these....II

here's the progress i've made on that container of hst
i will give this quilt to my neighbor, Melissa
she is moving to be closer to her job
she has been commuting over an hour one way for several years now
i can't blame her for moving
but, we'll miss her BAD

Remember these....

i cut these hst using my GO cutter and scraps 
and stacked them neatly into this old gummie bear container
knowing someone day i would just want to sew something
and all i'd have to do was grab this container and start sewing

well, that's what i did the other day
i have quite a long chain going

i'm thinking scrappy quilt... ☺

That has got to be a good read, and I love books almost as much as I love fabric, it is a good toss up that is for sure!

Just for you.....

this is a book i got from project
when you buy these books, a portion of the money
goes back to my chapter

about the book:
 If you are a quilter, live with a quilter, or know a quilter, this comedic look at life in the quilting world is a must read!
With little warning, Mark Hyland’s journey with “The Quilter” began as soon as he said the words “I do.”  After 17 years of marriage, he could remain silent no longer.  Mark exposes the idiosyncrasies and jargon of quilting from a non-quilting perspective, recognizing the love and dedication quilters have for their art.
Let the truth about quilters be known in this hilarious glimpse of their wild and wacky world!
The author has generously agreed to donate a portion of the proceeds of each book back to Project Linus.
i am going to give away a copy of this book...
please leave a comment if you would like to be entered to win

i'll draw a winner on friday....
