Sew... I mean SO, I am busy getting ready for the craft show in February! I made a little sign for my table, and some business cards and buttons. I borrowed baskets and clothes racks from friends and family, I found two whole models for the possible fashion show, bought and stamped shopping bags for customers, and now I need to actually sew some things to sell!
Psh! Boring! I'd rather work on my table!

sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows

I'm now in official "freak out because I need a bunch of stuff for the craft show" mode. But before I embark on my daily freak out, here's a sneak peak at one of the designs that will undoubtedly be making an appearance at the show.
When this burgundy and rainbow striped fabric came into the fabric store recently I knew it had to be in the line. I didn't know what I would make with it, but it HAD to come home with me.
I love rainbows. As a 5 year old I named everything (including myself) Rainbow. I have a deep child-of-the-80's love for the rainbow in all it's forms.
I'm also spending a chunk of my time these days studying for my motorcycle license (!) so that I can get a Vespa and scoot around town like a hep young thing circa 1964. So here is my nod to mod skirt lengths (18" below the waist. Not the scant 13" I wore back in college, but SO much more flattering) and colorblocking mixed with a healthy dose of Rainbow Brite.

Adventure and excitement

Guess what guys? I just got word that I will be at this craft show on the first Saturday in February! I am a little frightened now, but I've been working on a few things to bring along just in case I got accepted so I should have some fun things to bring out!
I'll be premiering some new colors and prints in stockings and panties, some never-before seen shrugs and accessories, and I'll even have an amazing section of super-duper discounted garments! Check it out!
There are rumors that they are trying to set up a fashion show as well, but I don't think I'll have any time to sew for that. So, unless someone volunteers to model for me who can wear the sample clothes I designed for myself, I'll be out of luck, there!
