Yes - I am working. And I realize I should be embarrassed by my workspace, but I faced my shortcomings a long time ago. I will never be able to keep a neat workspace. Let's just call it "organized chaos". And I did clean up before I shot these photos. A lot.
Anyway, I am doing my first holiday gift/craft show in November - and as usual, I'm a little behind. My plans of getting things done over the summer just didn't pan out - good thing I work better under pressure. While I usually make bags, I don't think they would be big sellers at this type of show, so I'm trying to keep my price points under $20. Thinking along the lines of quilted holiday coasters, pot holders, drawstring totes (for kiddos), crayon/pencil portfolios, luggage tags, zippered pouches, etc. I need to be careful that it doesn't end up looking like a modge podge of "stuff" though and am being selective with fabrics to try to coordinate the best I can.
If anyone has any suggestions for big sellers, let me know!
Other than that, all is sunny again in the South. The rains and floods in Atlanta were truly unbelievable. The area we live in was not one of the hard-hit areas - thank God. These are some of the folks that don't have flood insurance...could you imagine?
