Craft Show Pictures!

The past 3 days have been so very busy!!! It all started on Friday morning as I started to carry all my props and boxed crafts up from the basement into the garage for loading!

Around 10:30am I left for the PA State Track & Field meet to watch my niece, Laura Loht win the AAA title for the javelin throw!!! It was sooooooooo exciting and I'm so proud of her!!!

After the track meet we loaded the truck and then I went for groceries and never returned home until 7:30pm! An hour later my brother and sister-in-law arrived for the weekend. Didn't get to bed until 11:00pm.
Woke up Saturday morning at 3:30am to be on the road by 4:30am and traveled 2 hours to the show.

It was a hot and humid day but no rain!!! The crowd was down and we had more lookers than buyers which made the sales a little less than last year. Returned home around 8:00pm totally exhausted!

On Sunday we had a picnic so I skipped church to get ready for that! Had a great time with friends and family.... lots of water balloons were flying to cool us off.

Today I'm relaxing and staying indoors to stay cool!!!

Enjoy the craft show pictures and a picture of Laura with her gold metal!!! After looking at these pictures I see I need to get busy for my next couple of shows..... it looks bare compared to other years!

Country Memories Day Craft Show!

Hello blogger friends!!!! It's been a while.............nice weather, son home from college, inventory to build and still only 24 hours in a day! Next Saturday I will be heading off to my first show of the year! It is in McVeytown, PA so if you live nearby I would love to meet you! Sure hope the weather decides to be nice. Two years ago it ended in a very bad thunderstorm and collapsed one of my tents! The joys of outdoor shows!
It's amazing how quickly the weeks pass when you have so much to finish up! Here are some new towels I created with a wool pocket to hang from the two drawer wooden shelf that Jeff made. I also needed something for a Summer Celebration that our OFG Etsy team has coming up so I made these for both events!
Not only do I have one week to finish up lots of crafts I have started but yesterday I picked up a box truck (which I needed for a long time) that needs lots of love and cleaning. It will be so nice having all this room to transport my wares!!!!

I need everything ready to go by Thursday because on Friday I will be attending the PA State Track and Field competition to watch my niece compete for the state title in the javelin throw! She won the title in her sophomore year, last year struggled with the pressure but this year she is back in great shape! Good luck Laura!!!

Another New Pattern!

It turned out to be a beautiful day here in PA!!! After a day of storms and dreary rain the sun is now out nice and bright! I took the time this morning to finish up another new design for a 3" paper mache box in applique, needlepunch and stitchery!!!

You will receive step by step directions in creating this design in needle punch, stitchery, applique and how to cover the box in fabric as well! The design pictures a sheep and stars on a field of grass. Think of the cute ornaments, framed mini's, pillows and more you could create with it. The pattern includes pictures along with the written directions for covering the box.

It can be purchased right here on my blog with Instant Download....... over there on the left hand side!

Thanks so much and have a great day!!!
