Of course, I didn’t get everything done. And I’ve put customer quilts on hold for this week, which feels really strange, and instead, working on a Bronco T-shirt quilt. Well, actually, I’ve been working on several at a time, as usual. The Quilt Cave is strewn with blue and orange! The main one I was focusing on didn’t get finished; it’s at the border stage and merrily hanging in the middle of my booth anyway! It definitely got noticed and when I finish it I think it will sell quickly.
It’s been cold at the inaugural Bronco Craft Fair today, and very windy. How cold was it? Cold enough to have on a sweatshirt, windbreaker (that really works!), ear warmers, hat and still need to wrap up in an extra quilt! My feet were like icicles all day!
We have a wind advisory starting at 3pm…I think it started sooner than that, because at 1:30 booths started blowing into the street and one knocked over a bunch of displayed glassware! My quilt stands blew over several times and the quilts were flapping in the breeze. I checked with the event coordinator and she said it would be OK to move to another place, but with so little time left before the end of the event, I didn’t want to break it down and reassemble it again for a 2 hour time frame. As I was packing up, Security came over and confirmed that I should take it down.
The summary for the event: no quilts sold, but I handed out several cards and flyers so I should be getting some calls for quilting services or T-shirt quilts. I also realized I should have more items on hand for people to peruse. The problem is, I just want to make quilts!
This sort of weather, and standing for long periods really wears me out. We decided to forego the Bronco Spring Game and came home. I put my feet up and enjoyed a cup of double spiced chai tea and am contemplating how I’ll finish out the day.
I’ll definitely have a booth next year!
Have you all seen the new mystery quilt that Bonnie Hunter is running again this year? I want to participate, but I’m stuck on my colors! I love brights, but they don’t go with anything in my house; DH sort of over-ruled that idea! Ha!
So, we have all of the earth colors and I’m still trying to figure out what I can pull together that will work in the living room, and will be a quilt he’ll actually use. All of this indecision, and the third step is already posted!
…not to mention that I need to make a Bronco quilt for a customer before Christmas, and complete 2 other small customer quilts!
