Two weeks away . . .

Today has been a fairly focused day as I get myself ready to gear down for the Share the Harvest Fall Gift Market.  There was a meeting of the vendors last week, and I'm really pretty excited to see what everyone is going to be selling.  For example, MargaretandPurl.Etsy craft baby items; Southern Fried Lace does monogramming; Tasty Eats At Home is a chef specializing in gluten free foods; Monica's Jewelry does the most beautiful bracelets you've ever seen; shefeltz does fabulous flower-laden wool handbags crafted from recycled sweaters; and myself--GrandmaTutu--I craft beautiful project bags and simple, elegant soaps.  Here's what I've been working on, and will be working on for the next few days: 
Here's a picture of my project bag I use for knitted sock projects. I love the silver bead closure.

Here are some of the colors you'll see on GrandmaTutu's table at the craft market.

I use a loofah on my heels--with the right kind of soap and a loofah, your feet will purr (hint, hint).

I'm not sure I knew what linen was when I was a kid; since finding linen, I'm amazed at the different prints available, rather than what I was used to for so many years--wheat, white, pink . . . now there are lovely, exciting prints.

Stay tuned for more progress reports. 

And mark your calendar:  Saturday, October 16th, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. -- Jacob's Reward Farm, Parker, Texas.  Be there or be square!!  You'll so wish you had if you miss it!!
