21 rings locked and loaded for the market this weekend! I've been working so hard these past few weeks to get ahead.... I've been able to "catch up" between shows, but I had a weekend off and took advantage to stock up on small things like rings and hairclips. My earring rack is full again (4o pairs) and I hope to get another 10 pairs done before Saturday. Need to assemble several of the flower bead necklaces, and I should be in good shape! Somehow, I've managed to maintain sanity, and a weekly rehearsal with a musical friend. The good weather has been a help, as well as all the work hubby has done in the back yard, as we have been able to spend some afternoons outside. The girls have a playset and swings, as well as a good patch of dirt that still needs grass seed :-) so we have a nice arrangement as I sit and tat and they run loose like hooligans. Of course, it requires a bath immediately afterwards for the little princesses.
One matter that I soon seek to rectify is the honoring of the great patience of the winner of my bloggerversary giveaway. She was sweet enough to inquire in case I had sent something that might have gone missing in the mail, but alas.... I've been wrestling with the obligation of making things for the market and I don't want to just throw something together for her, I want it to be special and made with joy! So, I'll make my color and material selection and pack the supplies for the market. I get there extra early each time to ensure a good spot, so I have an hour before the market opens, and the first hours are slow anyway. That I think, is the perfect opportunity to enjoy the process of making something to brighten someone else's day :-) So, Brigitte....I thank you for your grace and patience. It will make me very happy to make something just for you. Know that it will come with much sunshine and happiness in each stitch!!!!
