Bring it on

Fall is the season of festivals, fairs, and crafty events, right? That being the case, I've entered my first ever crafty fair/festival event! I'm so excited, but soooo nervous...of course I can't even describe my thoughts lately (sheer fright sums it up nicely). What if I don't sell anything...what if I don't make enough stuff...what if my booth looks lame...what if I come across flaky (that's not hard for me to do if you know me...which most of you do who read my ity-bity blog :-) ...what if someones not happy with a purchase they made from me...the list goes on and on! I seriously think the what if's are going to kill me before the show date, I should forget about all this fretting business, I'll be put out of my misery soon enough. I know, I know...just take it easy from here on out, right? Easier said than done ladies! I probably sound a little off my rocker, sorry it's spilling over into blogville. You're still with me I hope, I haven't scared you off...even though today's blog is just a tad bit loopy? Just hang in there with me until D-Day arrives, or should I say C-Day ? I solemnly swear I won't go nutty in every blog...just a few from time to time :-)
Here's a few things I've been working on lately...I sew love to sew! It's my true love (besides my hottie hubby!) I can't imagine life without it...

This bag of reminds me of Dandelions in Fall
This one, maybe a Bohemian Flower?

A new Golden Paisley apron...




Pretty in Pink apron anyone?


I absolutely love this Asian theme fabric...just can't get enough of it



All of these new items will be for sale in my etsy shop! If your interested in anything and you don't see it listed in the shop, let me know, I'll answer any of your questions.

Make sure you check out my post from last Sunday about 'Fretting'! ;0) Good luck - I have tons of faith in you girl. ...and, even if you don't 'feel' like everything is just exactly like you want it just 'act' like it is and everything will go great. I go into every show w/a great deal of anxiety. It's what keeps us on our toes!

I love reading your blog... It makes me smile to think that just a year ago you were almost afraid to use a sewing machine!

Just so you know... I changed my blog up a bit... The pic at the top of my page is of your lovely Mae and Karissa during the camping trip last summer. It makes me smile every time I see it :)
