You know those days where you just cant get up the gumption to do much?
Today seems to be one of those days. :)
I have a little sigh of relief today. I have come to the long awaited conclusion that I am in a good place for my show on the 20th. I have a lot of stuff done and will have a good deal more completed in the next week and a half.
A lot of the stuff that isnt done yet is nearly completed and needs finishing stitches or final seams. Yay!
I have a bajillion ornaments complete and done.
I have quite a few clutch purses nearly done and need to do final top seams on those.
I have 6 more stockings to make and some more market bags to applique.
I will be putting most of my inventory from Etsy on inactive for the two day show.
Dont get me wrong, It will still be a mad dash to the finish line for getting things ready for this show. But at least it wont be a crying, spitting, cranky, slightly verbally violent, and dispondent tantrum throwing next week and a half! :)
Here is the pickle.
I want to sell a lot at the show on the 20th/21st cause the 20th is my birthday and it would be great to make some stellar sales to save up for next years plans that Mr. RedMarionette and I have going on. (Yes, that was a bad run-on sentence.)
But on the other side of the bun, I dont want to sell too much that I dont have enough for the other 4 shows of the fall.
I calm myself with the fact that I do have time in between each show (4 weeks) to restock sold items.
Its exciting to not know how the outcome will be! I will be taking photos to share with all of you wonderful people too!
Yes, its a scary word.
I have been scared of sewing with zippers....well, I still am. I ordered some off of Etsy.com to try making zipper pouches with little appliques on them....
Dun dun DUN! I can see the whites of your eyes.
I fiddled with some zippers this weekend and came to the conclusion that no matter how stubborn I am that a normal sewing machine presser foot does NOT like to play nice with a zipper.
I ordered the correct presser foot this morning. Then I have to be patient. Which I am NOT good at, to try again on something that seems horribly complicated and intimidating.
I have a new respect for people who sew with zippers.
Thats enough of my rambling today. Have a swell Monday!
