One for Three

Sadly the bazaar yesterday wasn't very profitable. I made enough to cover expenses but not enough to also cover the cute things I bought. Oh well.

My main Christmas tree will someday be all bird ornaments (right now I fill in with family ornaments, santas and cats) so I had to buy the crocheted turkey!

Sadly, there won't be time for Cookie Day this year but I am trying to get some made here and there...
I also bought this darling sign for my kitchen...it's painted on an old chunk of wood.

After the show I ran over to the LQS in East Aurora, planning to pick up some 505 spray baste and FQs for my mystery quilt. Can you believe the 505 was $3 more than locally and they didn't have a single fabric that matched my mystery fabrics??!! I walked out with 5 zippers to make more inventory.

On the other hand, I did have lots of time to sit and work on hexies!

I finally finished this POTC block. I don't have any more bits fussy cut yet so this will probably get set aside for a while so I can finish some more pressing projects.

I made some progress on this 1/8th section of my tree skirt. I finished basting all 288 diamonds a week or so ago. Yesterday I stitched together the 2nd row down from the top and basted the bottom 3 or 4 rows together. As soon as I finish this post I'll stitch more together before my lunch ends. I do think there is a real possibility this will be finished before Christmas 2015.

She may be tiny, but that girl can cast shadows =^..^=

And when I had finished everything else I brought with me yesterday, I returned to an old faithful - Value Proposition block #11. Yipper still behind and probably will be for a while but I am still really enjoying this project and I think I can get this done before Christmas 2015 too (ok, maybe just the top will be together and it won't be quilted...)

I have never made enough money on a craft bazaar to make it worth it either. That's a lot of work!

Chantal said...

I had a Craft Bazaar too and made a loss after my purchases!! Oh well.
Love all your EPP! I have a Naughty Cat Christmas tree which I collect a decoration or two for each year. It is still a bit thin but coming along. I love your idea for a bird Christmas tree. Love the crocheted turkey.

Your feline population will be thrilled when you do your "all bird" tree. : )
Beautiful POTC block!
Sorry the bazaar wasn't more profitable. : (

what a shame the bazaar did not go as well as you hoped, I am sure you will be able to sell your creations soon. Lots of hexies you have done on the projects. re 505 we can no longer buy it on line as the post office refuse to handle it I think it is all cans that they are refusing now, not sure why but maybe to do with terrorism

It isn't a race - just enjoy the process of making whatever it is you are working on! It will get done eventually I am sure!

So much hexie goodness here Sarah! LOVE your POTC block!!!! I'm a little addicted to these right now :)

Ok...so sometimes when you've texted me photos, when I run through posts that have the same photos, I think I've already seen/commented on the post. I just realized I hadn't! LOL! Your POTC block is fabulous, but your tree skirt -- WHOA!!! Sorry your market venture wasn't as prosperous as you would have liked. But you did pick up some very cute finds!! :)

I'm also on my way to an all bird ornament tree--love that turkey!
