    We arrived at 8am and set up out booth and by 9am I was packing my quilts up so they wouldn't get wet. Everyone one was looking at me like I was crazy because they didn't think it was gonna rain. 10 minutes later it poured!! Lightning was stricking the ground all around us. I rained for almost 2 hours. My quilts are nice and dry but my pincushoins, pocket tissue holders and a few of the purses got soaked.
    They are planning on rescheduling so maybe I can get a few more quilts completed.

    Here is my booth

    Wow Carrie. You have definately been a busy girl. I hope that you can get all of them dried out. You keep safe. And this will give you a chance to make more quilts. :)

    Bummer, but it will be nice if you finish some more quilts to sell. I am not really into pincushions, but I love yours!

    I love the way you have your display set up. Nice assortment of items. I especially like your pincushion jars. They are sooo cute!! What did you put in the jars?

    Your booth is so nice and inviting. I hate so much for you that it was rained out. I have watched your posts as you have been making so many items for this big day. Your work is all very pretty and you displayed it very well. I like your glass half full vision of doing it again soon and making more items from now till then. Congratulations on a job well done. You won the race eventhough you didn't get to the finish line yet. :thumbup:

    I didn't put anything in the jars. I was trying to keep my costs down.

    Well the highest priced item was $150.00 and the lowest was 1.00(that was the tissue holders). There was a wide variety of prices.

    beautiful setup, lots of lovelies and hard work.
    If there had been any quilt police around, no doubt they broke out of the funny farm, gf!
