Frazzled

I'm getting ready for my first bazaar. I haven't ever participated before and wasn't sure if I had enough to sell, what size table to get, or how many days to go. Being a newbie I made a bunch of mistakes. I rented a 4 foot table thinking "I don't have That much," and now that I'm putting everything in totes to take to the bazaar I'm thinking "Holy Cow, I have Way too much for just a 4 foot table" unfortunately its too late to ask for a bigger table. And I'm afraid I will have tons left after only 1 day of sales. Between the baby sets, blankets, hats and toys I've filled 6 big rubber maid totes. OMG, what was I thinking???? And on top of all of my stuff, my daughter will be selling her friendship bracelets at my table too. I must be crazy.

On an Afghan kick

I don't know why, but lately all I've wanted to make are afghans. I keep getting more and more requests for hats, scarves and toys, but I keep sneaking in an afghan here and there. I've been working on a round ripple throw for a few weeks now and finally finished it. I think it turned out pretty good and I used up a bunch pf scrap blues in the process.
After I finished that, I made some more R2-D2 hats for a friend of my husband. Then I got some tiny granny squares from my mom after she lost interest in a project she started months ago. She had all the blue and green done and some of the peaches and yellows, so I just made some more and added pinks and purples to finish it up.

Spongebob Square Pants set

I've been asked to make a Spongebob Square Pants hat and scarf set for a little girl and another scarf for a teen. I couldn't find any free patterns so I winged it. I figured, he's square so how hard could it be. As it turns out, he's really simple to make, just 2 color changes on the main part so you have a large amount of yellow, a little white (for his shirt) and then brown for his pants. Everything else is made separately and sewn on.

Craft Bazaar

I've decided to participate in a craft bazaar at Craft City here in town. I've been crocheting like a mad woman to come up with enough inventory to sell. I hoping to sell some hats, scarves, and blankets, maybe even a few of my stuffed animals (not the copyrighted ones). Here are just a few of the things I've been making.
