Where did this month go?

My last post was the first week I was called back to a teaching job, and I can't believe all this time has passed! I have been so immersed in my day to day, I lost track of time and space. And if I wasn't busy enough, I had signed up to be in an Arts Fair in a local town, with no booth fee! I decided back in July to commit to it. Of course my teaching job came along, and all the sewing and crafting I was going to do, came down to the week before. My sewing room was a wreck, but I happily cranked out vintage towels, pin cushions, mosaics and flannel baby blankets! At least I have some stuff to put up on etsy, I was selling and not replacing. My vintage apron finally found a home on someone it fits like a glove. I asked to take a pic of her, so I could save the memory. I loved that apron, I had it hanging up so I could look at it, it reminded me of my grandma B. She died shen I was 5, of breast cancer, just like my mom did. But I remember her filling her pockets with candy and always welcoming with a warm hug, even when I imagine it was painful.
The day was beautiful, and the people were friendly and generous. You can't ask for more than that! I traded my wares for a few coveted items at the show, the CountryDreaming lady with painterly photos, the asian lady with lovely and stunning silver and stone jewelry, a gal named Debbie, who I found out lives close to me; I am sure we will meet again, at Heinens and talk about the "Village" where we live.
For my first show, it was a success, at least I got paid. I will probably do it again, and have more to sell. Meanwhile, I have to get back to my grading papers and lesson plans, I am so enjoying being with kids again, even if they can be a bit sassy. A short post for now, I hope to catch up on my favorites, and post some tuts. Be watching, and reading!
