Well done Terri, so glad you did so well, although I was never in any doubt you do such lovely work. Doesnīt it give you a great buzz when you sell something you made.

Whatcha going to buy more fabric I bet. I didnīt see the mice either can you give me a link please.

I missed the mice too!! Would love to see them. Glad the sale went so well. It will be nice to get to keep your quilts. Sometimes it just takes the right person to come by & the right person was just not at the sale for your quilts & totes....However...maybe you are the right person for your quilts!! :D Your stuff is all beautiful!!

Kudos Terri, I knew you would do good because your work is great. Love the "mean lady" story. Have a nice rest, you and your machine!

I am so happy for you!! You should be very proud.

I agree, do keep an eye on things, my mom had a few things taken from another vender once.

Congratulations on your sale!! I'm glad you did well. You worked hard. Do you get to buy something special with the money you earned?

I have been at craft fairs, where others had "imported" stuff that they touted as hand made by them. You could tell, unfortunately because they didn't pay much for the stuff themselves they could sell for cheaper. I left a couple of shows after the first try because of the "fake stuff"

Now you will have the whole year to pace yourself and make more stuff for next year. Those totes will make great gifts or even sell next year!!!

Thank you, Thank you everyone.
Your encouragement meant alot to me in the process of doing this.

I posted a link, I think it's on page 2 for the mice.

I'm going to look around for the soft books, but if anyone finds them at a decent price....I paid $5.99/panel for mine....I'll gladly buy them from you.

The money I made will go towards a trip I am wanting to take in the spring. (not saying where at the moment, but stay tuned, I will tell as it gets closer)
Just the r/t ticket out of here is $2000, so I am about 1/4 way there. I don't like having to deplete the savings, but hubby says that if I REALLY want to go, I can take the money from there. I'd rather earn the money to go instead of using savings. One of the reasons why I worked. My pay checks were for "fun" things for the family. It's just that with the way Gov't of Guam and their taxes, I'm not working here.
Heard a rumor that there will be a spring craft show somewhere, not held by GNOSC that did this one. I might consider that, not sure. Just all depends on who is running it.

Thanks again everyone for the support you gave me. It really does mean alot!
