~Crafting For My Big Fall Show~

My big Fall show is now only 4 weeks away and I’ve been busy working on getting things made to fill up my booth with. I still need to get those ruffles sewn onto the towels. Didn’t get to them, because I was itching to be stitching up some pincushions. The one in this photo I purchased at a Fall show last year…

Here are some peeks at the ones that I’ve been making for the show…

The mice in these 2 photos I did not make…I purchased them from another crafter and they are handmade. I added them to the pincushions that I made…not sure yet if I will be selling these or if they are going up on the shelf in my sewing room.

Here is the little mouse that I made…actually made 7 of them.

I still need to get on the buttons, pins, and old key attached to the pincushions…but I’m really liking how they are turning out. I’m also working on some that have birds on the fabric print and they will have little birds nest on them.

Just have to show you this picture of our little nosey helper…silly little Zoey fell asleep while standing up watching my hubby working on the kitchen cabinets. Her front legs and head just kept slowing going down as her eyes closed, but she was still standing up on her back legs….Just too cute!!

I’ll be back here in a few days to share some more goodies that I’m working on for the show. Plus some pictures from the Flea Market Extravaganza that is this weekend. Not sure if I ever mentioned it, but this big Flea Market is held in my hometown. I’m looking for some vintage and cottage items for my new kitchen.

Speaking of the kitchen…they will be out to measure for our new countertops within the next 10 days or so. Then we have to wait for a few weeks until the new countertops come in…plus we are waiting on our farmhouse sink to get here. We did purchase 2 new lights for in there…

This is the light that will go above the sink…

…and this is the light that will go in the buffet area.

Well…I’m off to get some rest as it is getting late here…

Until next time…….         blessings, Cindy
