 Here are a few things I'm packing for my show tomorrow at Quailcrest Herb Farm ~ I should actually be packing my crates instead of blogging but when I saw this array of color, I just had to share!!  You might see something you like!! 

These are some of the remnants from the brights that I dyed last week!  I'm loving this vibrant color!  These are little bundles of the ends I cut off to square up the quarter yards and it's a nice way to add to your color stash!
 I picked these up at the wholesale market a few weeks ago.  The little red house is a cute little 'what not' that would look good perched on top of a table or cupboard.  The splint baskets are woven of hand-split reed ~ very old but must have been out of harm's way ~ they look good!

 Some woven table toppers for HaLLOween!

Bundles of fabric remnants from a weaver ~ I've made table runners out of the plain fabric to applique on.  You could use them for lots of little projects!

I'll have lots of wool, frames, hooks, sari ribbon and green sparkly yarn ~ patterns and foundation fabric and some finished rugs as well!  Come by and see us tomorrow if you're close enough ~ they have a very nice show of folk art and antiques and beautiful herb gardens to wander in!

I picked up friend Marge today and we went to the Senior Center for fish ~ $3.50 for two BIG pieces of fish and a side dish ~ Sonny and Brian have been lunching there since they're working in town!!!  Since her husband passed away, Marge doesn't get to go as much, so  I took her on my errands to Krogers, Kohl's and her bank ~ I think she enjoyed it!  I hope when I'm old, someone will come and pick me up once in  a while!!  I'll let you know ~ when I get old!!

Back to the packing ~ we'll load the truck when Sonny gets home ~ I'd like to not be up till midnight tonite!!  I used to do that ~ work till 1 or 2 in the morning and get up at 6 to leave for a show ~ those days are gone!! Think SUN, everybody ~ there's nothing better than an outside show on a beautiful day!

Bring some whites and some dirty whites and dark reds, okay?
Get a good night's sleep!

Alice, I feel a bit of envy about you meeting with your friends at the show. I hope that you sell lot of beautiful colors and stuff. I'll be working in the barn and hopefully I will get to cut my lawn too. Have fun... JB
