I'll be heading to San Diego Saturday for a new (to me) event. The Coronado Art Walk sounds like it will be a great fair, at a great location.
So, the fall show season has begun! I did two small fundraiser boutiques already this week, which were awesome. Tuesday, my friend Sharon hosted a fundraiser for ovarian cancer research, in honor of her mother Linda, who passed away from the disease. All in attendance were wonderful and generous. I kept the van loaded up, and spent Tuesday at another sale put on by Vistas for Children. Great people, supportive shoppers. I think it would be a great idea if everyone shopped for the holidays at events like this. Not only are you helping charities, you're usually supporting local and small businesses as well. All good!
Somehow I have to create inventory for all these shows, so when I'm not selling, I'm sewing. What are all these stray parts, you ask?
Why, owls of course. This is my new owl applique to go with the cutest fabric I scored a few weeks ago.
Here you see the fall portion of my show display. Sorry the photo SUCKS! The window glare didn't help. Anywho. . . the owl outfits are there on the right. I'm doing a baby dress version with pants, and the skirt set with a tee. They will be available in my web store next week. As will better photos!
Better photos? YES! I'm getting a new camera. Actually, I have a new camera, but it is in Australia with my husband. He is lecturing at a design conference in Melbourne. He bought the camera for me before he left, but highjacked it for the trip. So yes, this has been a crazy week. 3 shows, husband on the other side of the world, Emmet starting high school . . . which reminds me, I didn't get a first day of school picture of him. Maybe you don't do that for high school? Sheesh, I can't keep up.
