A business opportunity

I really thought that after the craft fair was over, I'd be able to get it together. But I'm starting to realize that I may, in fact, never get it together. And I think I'm o.k with that. Right now, I'm busy sewing up 15 scarves. These scarves are an order that resulted from my craft fair. Actually, I'll tell you the story. We had barely finished setting up, when two nice ladies came over to my table, and immediately started gushing about the scarves. She loved them, told me how wonderful my table was, and then, she had a business proposition for me. Can you believe it?? I nearly peed my pants (and I'm not kidding). Anyway, she owns her own business in which she has over 100 vendors of handmade goods, and each month she has a showcase of 40 and sells their products. And she wanted 15 of my scarves. She actually thought at first she could buy them all, but then realized I'd be left with nothing to show. I only had 9 scarves there. So, that was some major excitement. After she left, my cousin and I both needed to sit to compose ourselves. The only catch is that I have to mail these scarves out by Monday, leaving me little time to sew anything else.



I also wanted to show this cute little package from Jenn Maruska. Let me tell you, if you ever have an opportunity to swap with this lovely girl, do it! It was a small swap, in which she requested this Pumpkin Spice coffee drink, and offered up some of her gorgeous wool. (Grr for the blurry picture) How could I resist that? This is our second swap with a month or two. And I'd happily do it again! Thanks Jenn!!

I think I need to jump on the fabric scarf bandwagon! I love the way they look and I'm not surprised you had a custom order for them!
