I have been accepted to open my own booth at the Wednesday farmers market. Me...all by myself, to sell my Pine needle baskets.
I am soooooo excited. I have had more success at the farmers market selling my baskets (working in my sisters booth for her restaurant) than at any other venue.
Given the choice I would have liked staying at the Sat. Morning markets, but I am not ready financially to leave my sister's employ just yet.
But I digress...
So I have been slowly making progress towards independence. Smart phone for debit transactions, new facebook fan page, new cards, a table, a chair, licenses, etc...
I will be wood burning my own sign. First ever so wish me luck.
Ii think I am ready. We will know on Wednesday.
So in the meantime I did finish a couple more baskets.
These pictures don't do this one justice. The beads simply glow. It has the diamond stitch also. Simple but pretty!
Then a tiny one.
Straight stitch on this one, with tiny 'lil purple beads almost the same tones as the Cedar wood.
Then I discovered a box of wood slices had molded, 1st time ever.
So I put them out side on my old glass door screen to wash them and then sprayed them with a bleach solution. Hope they turn out well.
Also drying some grass. I am so glad for the sawhorses and screen, both were scavenged finds. Love that too.
I am very pleased with my progress!
For now I have to go get dressed for Sat. Market. Talk to tou soon.
