Mary and I attended the sewing/craft show today. This year there were a lot of fabrics, patterns, machines, and notions for sale. There was also the required embroidery designs and a bit of thread. Here is Mary shopping.
It seems that each year there are fewer vendors and fewer things in which we are interested. We each bought tweezers and that was all. I’m not sure if that is because there are fewer things of interest, higher prices, or because we have what we need. I took photos of a couple of booths just to prove that we were there this year, though we may not repeat this. Our time would have been better spent making items and using some of what we have instead of out gathering more ideas and tempting ourselves with more product.
We did see these rather nifty little beads that swell up and are very pretty in vases. They come in colors and are so pretty. They hold a good measure of water so you can actually grow some houseplants in them.
Then it was off to pick up my co-op order. If several of us order together we get better prices. Today I had ordered apples and cauliflower. DH would like some applesauce since he finished the last of what we had. Perhaps next week, I can work it in.
And the last project was capturing 20 chickens to take to a friend’s house tomorrow morning. They are spending the night in cages as it is far easier to catch them roosting than running around the yard,
