Just a few more days.....
I'm working on last minute things for the Be My Valentine online show. The critters for sale are all complete but they need tags, which have to be printed then laminated. Then they need to be prepared for shipment so I can weigh them and give an accurate quote on shipping charges when they are purchased. Sending emails to all the collectors on my mailing list also needs to be done.
Last week my sewing machine went on the fritz....panic. I had a spare but not the right presser foot for it. So, I took my machine to the local quilt shop for repair and was told it would take 2 weeks. Bill remembered there was a guy at the flea market that did sewing machine repair, so on Friday we drove down there. He was no longer there! We asked around and found out he had moved to another flea market about 10 miles farther south. He wasn't there Friday but we found out he would be on Saturday. I decided to take along my mom's Singer Featherweight too. This guy really knows what he's doing and I will have both machines back in working order shortly. I'm really looking forward to using the Featherweight again as it is the machine I learned to sew on when I was a child.
Been trying to get a few more puppies and bears done for the Tampa show too. Cappy in the photo will be headed to Tampa along with some little puppies and several Puppy Grrls. Next week I will get all the tags done for that show. Since we are driving almost 3 hrs to that show there is more prep to do....receipts, bags, lunch, etc.
Make sure to check out the TBACA Be My Valentine show. It starts at 4 PM, eastern time here in the US. There is a link to a time converter on the BMV page.
