Fair Results

Well, it was weird. Even with all the kids running around, I didn't sell a single " I Spy" quilt. As many people looked at them, the Texas A&M quilts didn't sell. I DID sell "Got Cats?", and 2 University of Texas quilts, the Christmas Dissapearing 9-patch, the salsa peppers tablerunner, and 3 sets of coasters. I'm not doing this fair again next year. I need to stick to fairs that are just that, craft fairs. Not locations where people are also working and have limited time for shopping.

I am going to take most of the stuff up to work next week and try to sell it there. I have confidence that with 100 children in a child care center I should be able to sell at least the "I Spy"s and probably the other kids quilts as well. If there is anything left after that I will be able to take it to church and set up a table during coffee hour.

For the next week or so I am going to clean up my sewing room. It looks like a tornado blew through it after all the craziness lately. Michelle has agreed to take some more unwanted blocks off my hands. I am just tired of looking at them and don't even feel like working with them. I want them out of my house. I have other friends that some unwanted fabrics will go to also. I am purging and cleaning and trying to organize scraps and projects as I go. I need to get some order in my life and this is where it's starting.

I'm scared to post a "before" picture, but promise an "after" when it's all done.
