It's Go Time!

For the first in about 6 years, I'm participating in a few craft shows this season.

My husband suggested I get a table, so I filled a few applications out 3 weeks ago. Then I had a full week of extra shifts at work - so not much sewing time there.

When I was doing the applications, I wondered what I was thinking cause I had ZERO stock for a craft show. I actually only have 10 items finished as I type...but I hope to have 12 more finished today.

My cutting table (aka dining room table) is covered in stacks of fabric and batting. The other half of the table looks much worse cause it has all the scraps sorted into rough piles for my bins but I haven't taken the steps to put them away yet.

Sew now. Clean Later.

That's my motto. Actually, I kinda live by that. Don't drop by my place without warning cause you may not be able to get too far in the door ;)

The ironing board is quite clear just now - I've already been sewing things together this morning - so just this small pile of to be ironed mug cozies is there.

I should have lots of buttons sewed on by tomorrow night, and this stack will be my happy pile of finished items :)

And the sewing staging area (aka my bed) has several stacks of bits that need to be quilted before assembly this afternoon.

I'm feeling kinda tired already, sigh. But I have a great start on these projects and I'm quilting about 3 sets in an hour, so this stack shouldn't take too long to be gone.

Tomorrow I have to attend a training session so no machine time for me until after supper.

Wonder if there's a Daylight Savings Week? I could use the extra days just now....

Has anyone else caught this crazy seasonal crafting frenzy? Linking up with WIP Wednesdays and Let's Bee Social.
