Jump.

5 Sep

I was actually on vacation all of last week. Monday through Friday were staycation days for me. I got some projects done around the house and took the opportunity to read and rest.  I also sewed.  A lot.

I finished a baby quilt. Check.IMG_6498

But then I also did a crazy amount of other sewing.  See, I’m taking a gamble, a jump, next month. I just signed up to have a booth at the local craft fair. I’ve always thought it would be enjoyable to sell sewn items and I finally figured it was time to jump.

The Blooming Prairie Village Affair is the last Saturday in October and so, until then, I’ll be focusing extra energy on making piles of practical home sewn items. (I think that’s my thing – practical home sewn.) As of right now, my booth will include key chains, Christmas ornaments (not entirely practical but eh), dog collars and leashes. I feel like I need one more item to make it a good old odd number but what that item is yet, I’m not sure. FullSizeRender 5

Will I sell things? I hope so.
Will I at least make back the booth cost of $24? I certainly hope so!

It’s all a grand experiment. We’ll see how much I enjoy the sewing, the setting up, the selling.  (So far it’s been fun to experiment and dream and think about the details.) I value your cheers of encouragement!
