Gardener's Market

Everything went well at the Gardener's Market on Saturday. In fact, thanks to a visit from my best customer and her mom, I had a banner day! This is what my booth looks like all set up. I made everything myself except for the pile of burp cloths on the orange table. Mom did those.

This is my sign. Spiffy, eh? We bought it at Kinko's.

These are the christening outfits that I made. I sold the front one in the picture on the right; it had a beautiful sheer overlay with small white flowers on it. I got the sheer fabric on clearance and just had to make something with it :) I also sold a pink brocade dress that you can't really see in these pictures.

The picture below on the left is all of the blanket sets (blanket, burp cloths, bib, booties) with crocheted edges that I currently have completed. The monkey set on the right is the edge that I designed myself.
(Yeah me!)

These are my dress up capes. They're all reversible; some have dragons and swords, others have flying horses and the letter "P" for "princess", of course. These have been surprisingly popular this year. In the bottom picture you can also see one of the rag quilts that I made.

Last but not least, I have single-layer receiving blankets (left), an assortment of bibs, sun hats and I Spy bags (which I sold out of, incidentally, bottom), and pillowcases (bottom right).
So there it is. Hopefully someday we'll get my website up and running, but until then I sure enjoy making all this stuff and selling it where I can :)

HOLY COW!!!! I love all of it! I knew that your christening gowns were beautiful but WOW!!! You have gotten so good @ all of your sewing.

I loved the story about Kai @ nursery. I can see him doing that. Poor little girl probably plays the same game w/ her mom too!

Everything looks just great. Having seen them all first hand I can verify that they are just as great as they look. I am so proud of you and your accomplishments. I knew you were capable of doing anything but this is far from what I thought.

Keep up the good work.

Love ya,

Wow! Your stuff looks great!

My boys love the capes that we bought from you last year!

Your nursery blog was hilarious, it reminds me of my little Kile. He is into that "kissing game" as well. Cute kids!

How fun! Have you looked into setting a shop up on I have quite a few friends who like selling their stuff on there. I just broke out my sewing machine and am going to attempt to turn my wedding dress into a couple blessing outfits. If I don't succeed, I may be calling to commission one...
