The Fiber Expo is next weekend. I have a lot of work ahead of me to get ready for it. There's some Merino/bamboo and Merino/Tencel roving in the basement waiting for some color and I need to get some spindle boxes completed. I had been thinking of abandoning my Etsy store but I have all this wool and dyes and fabric that I need to do something with. Might as well turn it into something useful for my store. Besides, it gives me more things to play with, which I count as a win.
I filled out an inventory sheet tonight and labeled each piece of roving and yarn for sale. I'm getting pretty excited about this sale. I have a friend, Rhonda, splitting the booth with me so we'll have more stuff in our booth, which is always a good thing, and I'll have someone to talk to between customers. More importantly, I'll have someone to watch the booth when I need to use the bathroom. Rhonda found this castle dollhouse kind of thing at Michaels that looks a lot like my business logo. It's one of those bare wood things that you need to paint. I'm thinking a quick sanding and a coat of black spray paint and then a couple of bud vases on top with single red roses in them to look like flags. Yeah, it's hard to picture and I don't have a photo yet but I'll be sure to post one when I do. I'll be taking pictures of our booth so hopefully the castle will be done by then. I'd really like to have it done by the show.
Aside from the Fiber Expo, I'm still deciding on the sashing to go between the squares in my Halloween quilt. My sister thinks a dark green would look good but I'll have to audition different colors first. If I have time this weekend, I'll visit my quilt store to do some shopping. I'd like to have the top done by the last Wednesday of the month which is when the Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild meets. It's nice to show off what you've made to people who know the work that went into it.
Have a good weekend, people!
