Look at that! Isn't it beautiful? I'm talking about the forecast for Saturday. The day of our first HUGE outdoor show, and they are forecasting sun, nice temps and no wind or rain. However, I know we're not out of the woods yet. This is Kansas and the weather can turn on a dime, but I'm pretty stinkin' hopeful.

I stitched up a few Itsy Bitsy Bags last night, but I have to admit that I think I'm done sewing. I'll have about 20 Itsy Bitsy's, and they tend to not sell as well at shows as they do online. I think it's because people are able to read my descriptions and see the photos of how they can be used on Etsy, so they "get it". Weird, because they are one of my bestsellers on Etsy!

So, I'm going to concentrate on packing everything up, and then cleaning the house. I have a babysitter staying with Lil' Kay on Saturday, so I really need to make the house presentable. Right now, it's embarrassing! What can I say? I'm a crummy housekeeper under normal circumstances, but I've been production mode since June. No time for cleaning. Must sew.

Phew! I am so excited about this weekend. I just got an email from my cousin who says she and her daughter are planning on coming down for the fair. It's the most anticipated craft fair in this area every year, so I'm constantly talking to people who will be there. That just makes the excitement and nerves and butterflies intensify! I love it!!
