Here it is Thursday evening and I'm posting.  I thought I'd better get some things done or at least started to show you.  You'll remember in my last post I was excited to try something new.  Well, I haven't done it yet and it'll be on the back burner for awhile.  I have other priorities... like my booth. :-)  I am now pleased to announce I have 3 of my best friends now putting their beautiful work in my booth.  We are doing phenomenal!!!  Hence why my new project will have to wait.  I need to get caught back up with items for the booth.  I need to get myself busy creating new signs... we are almost completely out :-)  So, today I went digging in my garage for some signs Steve started, but didn't finish due to lack of time.  I also found some unpainted boards for some other ones.  After cleaning up my crafting table, from another project I started, (I'll show you that in a minute) I brought out the paints today and got busy.

The first picture are the ones Steve made.  I'm not sure I'm going to be able to salvage the Vintage Quilt one due to the sap coming out of the board.  Of course both of these need sanded and stained.  The Home Sweet Home is one of our newest stencils.

The red ones are freshly painted.  I have BIG plans for both of these :-)

This black odd shaped one was a trash find.   I'm not sure if I want this Americana or with a pineapple on it.  Guess we'll have to wait and see. lol.

Since I had a little fabric left over from my most recent aprons and bonnets I thought I'd put it to use.  I had to as it was sitting there calling my name.  Asking for me to use it because it was two of my most favorite color combo's.  Of course you know what that means, yes, I started a new quilt.  However, this quilt will also be put on the back burner for awhile.  You have to agree these fabrics would call out to you too lol...  I have to tell you these pinwheels were so easy to make!  I just kept going and kept going.  I have them all cut squared up and ready to use when I'm ready.  :-)  I think I might just have to make some other colors to go with them.

I also bagged up the spiced grubby eggs so that I can take them out to the booth tomorrow.  I was just out there today, and man we have been selling like crazy.  Hence the rush to make new items.  So be sure to check us out if you're in the area.  Our information is in the right column of my blog. :-)

I'm off for the next 3 days so I'm hoping to get a lot of crafting done.  I may need to have Steve cut some more boards for signs.  I have some awesome one of a kind ideas rolling around in this little brain of mine.  Well, I thought I'd post quick while my paint is drying.  I'll keep you posted as I finish things up.

So glad you are doing well, go girl! Maybe the on quilt sign, you could rip off the edge, if the bleed out is just in that one place.

Hi, Mary:
The signs are great. It's a shame about the sap. That sign is beautiful. The pinwheels are beautiful, I can't wait to see the quilt.

Isn't it great when you are selling well in a store!!?I like that odd shaped piece--should make an interesting sign. Your signs look great--must be why they sell!! :)--Jan

Hi Mary,
your projects are inspiring! Happy for you that your sales are doing well-wish I could say the same for around here. Maybe one day things will pick up again.
Take care!

Nothing wrong with starting a new quilt! ;) I cannot help myself, I start a new one near everyday! Yes, those colors call out to me and brown is one of my favorite color combos...also rusty red and deep gold. ;)

Everything is so to look. ;)

Mary, that is awesome that you all are doing so well in your booth! Congratulations girl!! Oh I love that vintage quilt sign, I hope you are able to save it. The home sweet home is a neat sign too.

Yes, love that color combo! I was thinking about using those colors in my bedroom but I came across some pictures of red, brown, and creams so now I'm torn.

Happy crafting~ =]
