Hi friends! If anyone is in the DFW area this Saturday, 12/1, stop by Jesuit HS for their Christmas Bazaar from 9 – 5. I will have a booth for The Polka Dotted Pug and you can stop by and say hi. I’d love to see you all!
I signed up for the bazaar back in September and ended up not making the cut. There were a lot of returning vendors from past years and they get preference over newbies like me. So I was bummed for a bit and then got over it. No big deal. Then, about 2 weeks ago I got an email saying that a vendor cancelled and I was at the top of the wait list. Did I want the booth? Heck yes! It’s a bigger booth, and more expensive, than I originally signed up for but I can fill it. Or so I thought.
I have been a crocheting machine these last 2 weeks. I am going to get arthritis. I don’t keep a lot of stock for my shop because it’s hard to determine what colors people will choose. So I basically had to make everything. And, enough to fill a craft fair booth from 9-5. Eep.
I thought I was doing well. I really did. But now, I’m starting to panic. I only have a few days left to finish all of these things. And the quick items, like scarves (which I made 9 last night!) are finished. Now all that’s left is the time-consuming (more so than the scarves) items. Ugh. Fingers crossed I finish everything in time.
This is a photo of me last weekend when I thought I had everything under control. Note the smile. The small stash of yarn. Well, that’s not at all what I would look like now if you took my picture. And, it looks like the yarn store threw up in my office right now. Dog-cat #2 keeps bringing me yarn balls he finds in the office. I think he’s telling me to crochet faster. I don’t even stop him from going in the office anymore. Let’s face it, I need all the help I can get.
I’m off to finish crocheting some baby hats, some boot cuffs, and fingerless mitts. If you don’t hear from me in a few days, I’ve gone insane. Just a heads up.
Enjoy your day & stop by the Bazaar,
