Art Fair Display

I did my test run today. The pictures don't do it justice but here they are anyway. I'm glad that I did this because I didn't have enough fabric. Now I just have to measure it to ensure I have stayed within my booth size. I also emailed the lady in charge of the fair to see if my booth is along a wall (so my frames will be propped up) if not I'll have to devise some sort of plan.
I wish it didn't all look so crowded but next time I'll know to get a bigger booth! I'm a little nervous about the setup since I'll have Kendall with me, say a little prayer for me! Pray for Brian too because he is going to have to put her to bed tomorrow night, ha. I'm so excited but I'm already so tired. I have stayed up way too late the last two nights and I'm sure that I won't be able to sleep again tonight.

By the way, if you see something that you like you can place an order by either emailing me or leaving a comment with your email address. You can click on a picture and they will get bigger. The pricing guide is at the bottom of this post.
I made the cutest little waist apron (sort of like the nail aprons from Home Depot) to hold my money at the fair, too cute. It was the first time my sewing machine actually touched fabric, it has only been used on paper up until this point. It was fairly painless, I only sewed it to itself in one place and sewed the apron strings so they went into the apron instead of on the outside but it looks fine now. I'm sure I will get pictures at the fair with it on me and I'll post it to show you. Pretty proud of myself though. It may not work as well as I have hoped it would since I will probably be wearing Kendall in her Snugli as well, ha.

Speaking of the Little Bug she does the cutest thing now. Anytime she gets her hand on anything she swings it back and forth immediately. What is really cute is sometimes even when nothing is in her hand she balls her little fist and shakes it back and forth, I just imagine her saying, "Why I oughtta..." It always cracks me up.

Well, I think that I might try to grab a ten minute nap before she wakes up. By the way the laundry on the guest bed is folded and I'm making a yummy slow roasted beef with mashed potatoes, look out Martha!
