AN EARLY START FOR SHOW TIME

although it seems November is afar  off, it will be here before I know it, my two day Christmas show & it requires a lot of cutting, sewing, stuffing, painting, sanding, ageing there’s even some hammering involved lol! Friday is the longest of the two days 9:00 A.M.  till 9:00P.M. & it’s busy non stop & my tables are usually about naked by Saturday morning, so when I saw this Christmas In July Challenge I knew it’d be a good kick off to getting ready

Love By Hand

I think I have plenty of Gingers for this year

little Annie's are good sellers for me & they make great fill in’s , I went to paint their faces on & couldn’t find the paints , but no worries, they’ll have a face in no time they make up fast & I’m looking to do at least  ten of these, I just love them!

speaking of faces ,Annie just needs a few touches & she’s ready to go,

Andy is hiding so we’ll snag his picture later, now it may not look like much but this is a lot with all that’s going on over here lol! I didn’t know people were coming to cut my yard today so I had to deal with that, I didn’t know I didn’t know where my paint was, I didn’t know my black buttons weren’t where I put them last , this is actually a good thing, I can now make sure to have all these things before show time sneaks up on me, it seems I always never have enough little stuff or not enough big stuff, I intend to have plenty of both this year

here are a few past Annie's I will re introduce to the how this year,
