Colonial Day is over..... And boy, am I exhausted. Since I only do the one show a year, I forget from one year to the next how tiring it all can be. And there were 4 of us doing this! Hmmm, I wonder how they are feeling lol? God heard our prayers and we had NO rain. It actually started to sprinkle as we were packing up for the day. Couldn't have asked for a better day. It got hot and muggy in the afternoon, but we were staying hydrated.
With the economy the way it is, I wasn't sure what to expect, but we all had sales. I took some pictures just in the beginning of the day, and didn't take any after that. Wish I did. The above picture was us moving stuff around. Louise who is part of our group is holding the penny rug she did. She came by on occassion to see how things were going. Throughout the day she is busy in the church down the street volunteering with the food and what needs to be done. She made some awesome items for the show. Beth is in the back busily arranging the items, and Willa is on the right. Willa had quite a few rugs for sale and she also made the needle felted snowmen and pumpkins. Beth had made a few purses, and some toothbrush rugs that were really pretty. Very Fall like colors. Wish I would have gotten a shot of those in the wire basket.
Here are a few more picutures of our booth.
And here is Tonya arranging the beautfiul pillows she made. She also had some penny rugs for sale.
I will be going through what I have left over and deciding what I will keep to put in my home, and which will go on ebay. I will let you know what is going up for sale shortly.
After the show was over, there was discussion about next years show. Here's hoping that we get an early start on preparing for it!!!
Hope you all enjoyed the pictures. Now it's time to get back to the things I've neglected for the past month or so. But I think I'll have another cup of coffee first.......
Have a wonderful week!
