A Crafty Weekend

This weekend was dedicated to all things craft show.  Friday night I managed to whip up a few last minute items to take.  All of these items were made from abandoned blocks. 

I embroidered this little pattern last year after seeing something similar on Pinterest and couldn't figure out a use for it.  I almost just put it in a little wooden hoop to use as a wall hanging but at the last minute decided the thermoses made it perfect for a mug rug.

 And five new covered journals:

This the first block I sewed for my Herringbone Quilt (still in the works) but I cut it at the wrong angle and couldn't use it.

Playing with a mini charm pack :)

Nothing too fancy.

 A paper pieced fox.  I'm thinking this little girl need some button eyes and a button nose...

 And a tuplip.

The rest of this week will most likely be dedicated to making over my booth.  The decorative/organizational items I have are cute but the shabby chic-ness of them is not really my style.  They will be getting painted, mod podged or who knows what else.  And I will definitely be adding more display options.  I've already picked up two more clothing racks, 3 stackable crates, and a jewelry display.  There will be new tableclothsand many more things to come.

I picked up a few neat items at the craft show but didn't have time to take photos so more on those later. 

And in other exciting news, my brother has asked for not one, but THREE quilty items (I'm just excited that he found something he likes enough to have me make!)  So I will be ordering fabrics today (yay, shopping!).

Linking up with Let's Get Acquainted Monday.
