    Congratulations! Sorry about the mean woman! Have you thought about putting your stuff on ETSY to sell some things for your super secret trip?
    I'm not sure how much it is to ship things out of Guam, but it might be something you can do in the mean time while waiting for your next craft fair and maybe you can sell some of those totes!

    Thanks!
    Yea, that mean woman will get hers, know what I mean?

    I've thought about it, but not going to do it. I have a couple orders from friends, so I can sell them that way. I'm not in an all fire hurry. If I sell them, I sell them, if not, they'll go for Christmas gifts. :)

    Terri, I'm so glad you had a successful day. I had about 5 other quilters at the show I just did and they kept wondering over to my tables to see why I was so busy!!! I just loved it. Kept asking me how I was doing. I always said its been wonderful so far. Don't feel bad about the totes, I didn't sell any of mine either. Which I thought was weird, cause I always sell a couple.
    So glad your organization raised lots of $$$$. Thats always a great feeling. Congrats.

    Good for you Terri, glad you had a great day (execpt for the annoying lady of course, there's one in every crowd I'm sure), good luck collecting all the money you need for your getaway. When will you know if you were a top contributer?

    So happy for you that your stall was a success, so sad that you had a tote stolen.

    Thanks all..
    Not sure when we find out if we are the top contributors. I'm about 90% sure that we are since last year, it was $5000 that was the top, and gee...GNOSC were the ones. lol Go figure, huh? Leave it to a group of women to be top people! lol

    That is FABULUOUS news Terri!! Sounds like you had a wonderful day despite the cranky puss a couple tables down from you.. She was just jealous!!! I laughed out loud when you said one lady left your table, went to hers and came back to yours and bought the book!!! Looks good on her!!!

    sorry about the missing tote bag though.. that really sucks. It possibly was hers, and her way to get back at ya..

    Maybe next year I'll try my hand at a craft fair.

    Thanks Aggi.
    It just irks me that it came up missing. It's not like the fabric could blend in anywhere and I wouldn't notice it if I saw her out in town. It's one of the purple/grape ones.
    Oh well....I guess she just liked me so much, she had to have something to remember me by. What goes around comes around, right? lol

    Congrats on the great sales at the craft fair. I get the books at Walmart and they are about $4 a panel. I have made a number of them for my grandson. They are really nice. Again GREAT JOB

    Jeannie...if you go into Walmart or any fabric store (don't think LQSs would have them), there are panels you can buy that you sew together that make books.

    Thanks! The mice were made of felt. I tried some thicker type felt stuff, but it wasn't the same.

    Yes, please keep a lookout and let me know

    Terri my Walmart has some of the soft books, one has the colors with different languages and the other is religous (spelling?) I think. Both were 4.44 a panel. Let me know if they interest you.
