Some Crochet and Some Etcetera

Hello all, and I hope you're all doing well.  All is well with me right now, and hopefully it stays that way.  There is a stomach bug making its rounds and I'd just as soon it does not find me.  I can hope!  lol  

The vendor show was this past Friday night.  It was only for two hours and I cleared $87.  Better than nothing, and it isn't too bad considering that not many people ventured out for it.  Also, the location was only about 5 minutes away, so very minimal gasoline costs as well.  I sold two hats, some dishcloths, hair bands and some appliques.  Here are some of the things I had for sell.

Dishcloths/Washcloths/Hot Pads

Hair bands.  I actually had about twice this many as I made more after this pic was taken.

 Cotton Rounds (none of these sold)

Cup Cozies (again...none of these sold)

And here is a pic of my vendor area.  I also had a couple scarves, some boot cuffs, headbands and doilies for sell, but people just weren't interested.

Now that the vendor show is behind me, I am taking a break from crocheting those kinds of things.  I am working on my Around the Bases CAL again, and I want to work on some Christmas presents as well.

I watched the grandkids on Saturday while their parents went out of state for a funeral.  This next picture shows two of the reasons I scrapbook.  :)  I loved that they were looking at the book, and I also loved that she was reading some of the journaling on the pages.  Most adults don't bother to read the journaling...although they really should.

We also had some fun making pom poms that day.  :)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a good week!!


  1. WOw . All of your work is great. You have made so many gift worthy items!

  2. I think you did pretty good at the craft fair. I did so many of those over the years and barely covered the cost of the materials.. it's very disheartening. So.. you did great! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. Considering your first time, I think you did well at the craft show. Your stall is looking pretty!!
    Nice to see your grandkids having a lovely time at your place :)

  4. Sorry you didn't do as well as you hoped at the craft show. That's my fear and one of the reasons I haven't tried it yet. But I'm going to try next year. Wish me luck!
