Craft show

The craft show was a success!
I was very happy with how the craft show turned out. A lot of people came to the show, many willing to spend money (at least at our booth!) I'm always happy when I sell enough to cover the cost of the booth at a show, and Saturday was much better :-)

My booth a little before the start of the show.  I did a little rearranging and straightening before it started.

I displayed snowflakes and spool ornaments on a small tree. It drew a lot of attention; the picture doesn't do it justice.

A view of the gym after things slowed down a bit.

Usually during a craft show I keep a small tatting project handy to work on during slow times, which also has a tendency to draw people over to see what you are doing.  This show I never had a chance to even get it out of my purse. I wasn't always selling something - I spoke to a lot of people about who they knew/know that tats and the possibility of them someday learning themselves, even a few that actually tat.  I lost track of how many business cards I handed out to prospective students. ***happy dance***

This Thursday is Thanksgiving here in the United States.  We'll be having family over to our house on Thursday when we'll be having roast beef, but we're cooking the turkey for another big family dinner on Saturday.  I'm looking forward to seeing family as well as all the food :-)

While going through some of my old tatting papers looking for patterns the other day I found a small photo album that I used to keep small samples of my tatting in many years ago.  I found this turkey doodle with a date of 1992.  It's cute, quick, and timely so I made a few for the holiday.  I think I'll put a pin back on these and give them to a few of my family.  Or maybe use them for table decorations as place markers or something.  They are made with size 20 Lizbeth thread and are less than an inch tall.

May you all have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
