One week to go!!!!

AAHHHH!!!! Next week at this time I will be on Columbus Avenue selling my creations. I am busy all week getting ready and making lists. I am so nervous I will forget something. I have about two hundred skirts and ruffles and about forty dresses.(If I get them finished this week!) I will bring adorable flowers for the hair and some great pin flowers too. I have set up my racks and tables in the basement so I can get a feel for how it will work and that has made a huge difference! Kimberly v Photography who does the fabulous pics is blowing a few up for the booth which will give it a wow factor. In some ways I feel ready to go and others I worry that I don't have enough or I am missing something that I don't even know. DH is coming and is in charge on the money and we have a creditcard account almost set up - so that should simplify things. I would like to believe that we will have the car packed and I will be to bed early friday night but we will see...

Two weeks to go until Columbus Avenue...

My stomach is starting to do flip-flops and I dream of sewing at night...the 24th will be here soon! I have clothes piled in my living room and empty bolts in my dining room so I'm heading in the right direction. The only problem is I have the skirts sewn up to the point of adding elastic with the thought that I could easily finish up at the end. I need to focus on those. I have over 200 pieces and have added some cure dresses. Today I worked on a light pillowcase top - still needs some tweaking but I'll post pics next week. KimberlyVPhotography took more gorgeous pics - check them out!

We took some more fun pics today - amazing weather again! There is three weeks left to Craft on Columbus Ave. I found out that I will be in front of the Museum of Natural History between 78th and 79th street! So excited. I feel pretty confident but still have alot more to do! I have to sew more dresses and make some headscarves to match. I also want to get some pics blown up for the booth and other bookkeeping tasks done. So head is spinning!

The skirt in the top is made with the Alexander Henry fabric dedicated to the artist Frida Kahlo. I love her - one of my favorite female artist and the fabric is so cool!

Today was a perfect spring day! One of those times where you tell the kids to stay outside all day and then you join them! The winter was brutal this year and the rain endless this week so today was well deserved! Just perfect!
