Crafty things and rainbow blocks

Have I ever shown you my “to be quilted” board?

I list the title to the left, the measurements of the top, batting and backing and if the Label is done and the Binding, either with a checkmark or a number if the binding hasn’t been made yet, then how many strips it needs.

At the bottom of the board are sizes of large chunks of batting that I have- I also have a roll of warm and natural, but these could be packaged battings or chunks left over after I made a quilt and cut off the remnants from the roll…

anyways…. my board is empty!! a first in, I don’t know how long! I don’t know what to do with myself!!

Of course, start something new!!

I have signed up for a local craft show by the town I live in, and my big sellers last year and at other shows are these fun ITH eyeglass holders

I have owls, cats and dogs!

Here’s the box that my husband made for me a few years ago for them and I have them sorted in rainbow colors!

-it’s funny, a customer might walk up and look and then comment, oh you don’t have a purple cat- oh then I don’t want one….sigh…. oh well

So I try to have variety!

What cute eyeglass cases. Yes, we all want 'our color' when we buy something.

When is your show? I am busy prepping for 4 shows, it's pretty crazy at my house right now. Good luck with yours. Oh I totally get the need of variety to please everyone we possibly can(and make the sale!).
