Shows, Projects and Loot in the Mail

Well, the weekend is already half over, I had a nice quiet one, all by MYSELF!  Hubby is away for a few days, he had a conference and then went to visit his parents in Pensacola.  David had clinicals, he worked two 12 hour shifts, so no one home except ME!  I got to sew, sew,and sew and I watched Walking Dead (1st Season again) to get ready for the new one tomorrow night. I had several orders to finish up, got some naked bodies clothed and some new projects started.  I also worked in the yard some and played with our "dog", picked up more shoes and trash!

I made a few new Santa and Elmer, his reindeer.  A Pineberry Lane pattern.

 Some orders and swap items

 I bought some springs from a gal in one of the Facebook groups I am and I received some spools in swap from Tammy of Scentfully Country Gal Creations.  Not quite sure how I will use them, have some ideas tho.  Maybe some mini snowmen make-dos.
And I received my give-away win from Maria of the Frenzied Fox, the painted chicken print.  Thank you Maria, I love it, it will go perfect in my kitchen. I did another swap with Lil Raggedy Angie for the child's ironing board, I bought a large one several months ago at an Antique Fair.  I am using them for display.

I was decorating our display cabinet at the library and I ended up with a live decoration.   LC (Library Cat) had to climb in and investigate. He then spent the rest of the day curled up next to my computer and snoozed.
 We also did our staff decorated pumpkin contest again, I thought I had a better picture saved, mine is the witch this year.  I couldn't come up with a good idea this year.  I already have next year's planned, a Jeepers Creepers Scarecrow.
 We teach craft classes at the library where I work, and they are definitely not prim crafts.  They have to be more the cutesy type and anything with claypots seems to be popular. We are doing a Christmas Village this year. I have to admit, that I like the way this turned out, even if it isn't prim.  I am doing the Santa and Mrs. Claus, tree and Claus' house.  We almost have our class full in less than a week.

Tomorrow, Debbie and I are going to a Fall Festival in Orange Park.Hoping we'll find something good, I heard that it wasn't very good this year.  Next week, some of us from work are headed to MacKintosh and then the following week the one in Micanopy.

Well, I need to get back to making elves, I have 14 to make, I only have 7 made.  So far, this year, I have made over 40 of those little guys.

Have a great Sunday, Cyndy
