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
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,
there’ll be lots of Christmas ornies
and my new love for
PILLOWCASES & APRONS
with all the new I’m introducing this year I definitely will have to refigure how to display it all, did I mention I had over 30 naked traditional Raggedy Ann’s/Andy's ready to be pulled together lol!
be sure to visit
and see who’s been sewing!
