I'm accepted!

I got a phone call today that I was accepted into the 33rd Annual Unicoi County Apple Festival October 1 & 2, 2010 in Erwin, TN!!!
I did this show once about 5 years ago and it didn't work out too well. I was on the side street and it POURED rain! They even let us close up early.
This time, I'm paying the extra money to be on Main St. where the 100,000 visitors are! If you've ever been to this show, you know that the side streets don't get even close to the people that are on Main St.
I'll be stitchin all winter, spring & summer to get ready for this one and Waynesville Apple Festival is 2 weeks later, so I'll have to stitch in my sleep!

I'm still working on some new primitive dolls. I sewed the parts and turned them last night. Tonight I'll be stuffing them. Seven dolls at one time! I'm timing it since people always ask me how long it takes to make a doll. So far, I've got about 6-1/2 hours in and still have to stuff, assemble, paint, needle sculpt, sew on hair, and make the clothes. I'll post photos as soon as they're done.

If you're waiting for a photo of my computer armoire, it's still in my van, so the photo won't be posted soon. I have to unpack and organize my craft room before I bring it in. Maybe by next Christmas??? :)

stay warm ya'll~~~~~

Congrats on getting in. I used to vend at shows years ago so I know how hard it is to get in shows!
