Been busy making more inventory for the Apple Festival next month. I think I will start Christmas gifts right after the festival. After Christmas I will start summer things. Need some new ideas.

My great-grandson had his first day of school today. He is growing up fast! Love him to pieces!

Made a ninja turtle earflap hat and mittens and kid slippers. Working on cowls and infinity rings.

It has been almost a month since I was here. I was at the Savin Rock Festival this past weekend. Made money. Got invited to several other craft fairs. Many compliments on how good my work is and lots of business cards taken.

We had good weather on Saturday but Sunday we had rain, humidity and then scorching heat.  I got 3 special orders. I sold some things and a woman was very interested in an adult sweater. I told her daughter I would be at the Applefest in September.
Taking today off. Will start making things tomorrow for Applefest, special orders and Christmas shows.

Here I sit at 5am. I hear birds chirping like the end is coming! Very loud today! Been crocheting like a crazy person! Finally have things priced and tagged for the market. Hope I at least make my booth fees. Flipflop keychains, string bags and baby sandals.

I made sunhats to match sandals. Too cute! I will be at the North Haven Farmers Market held at the fairgrounds on July 12 and 13. Please stop by

Catching up

I have been so busy making inventory for craft shows. I am signed up for 2 big ones here in my town. Hope to add more for the summer and fall. Making new hats with brims and a flower on the side for the shows.Towel holders and string bags are made.

I got my tent on sale! I am ready to go. Have plenty of help lined up. I am a bit nervous but know I make quality items. I have reasonable prices so I should do okay.

Been awhile since I posted here. Been busy making things for the craft fairs. I must admit at times I feel overwhelmed by all of this creating things. I hope I sell enough to at least break even. I got my popup tent. My tax license came. Now I have to send the applications back and I will be good to go!
Have a Happy Spring!

Spring at last

Started sowing seeds for the vegetables. Sprouting in some flats already. Daffodils are blooming. Tulips and the lillies are coming up. Planted some new lillies and a pink peony. My son turned over two thirds of garden so far.
We decided to put the vegetable garden back in. 4 raised beds , each 4 feet square. Lots of room for lots of vegetables. Glad I kept all my canning equipment and jars. Need to get rubber rings for great-grandma's jars. Also need to get lids for the mason jars. Wide mouth and regular size.

Made 3 dozen sneaker booties for babies and toddlers. Made a pair of slippers for a 6-12 month old. Started a cardigan in ocean colors. Plan on putting fish buttons on it. Glad to be knitting instead of crocheting. Hands need a rest.

Today is gray and gloomy. A few days into Spring. Snow expected tonight into tomorrow. Welcome to New England.

Bought my seeds and starter soil over the weekend. We have decided to put the raised beds back in the yard. We eat a lot of veggies and I have all my jars and canning equipment and the dehydrator. May as well bring them out of retirement.

My daffodils are coming up fast! The cranesbill geraniums are back. See signs of life emerging all over the flower gardens.

Even got some houseplants in hanging baskets!

Finished a dozen pair of newborn hi-tops for sale and now working on size 1 hi-tops. Will make size 6 month ones too.
