Phew! This show is crazy to prepare for. I think it's a combination of lots of things...time of the year for our stock to be getting low enough that we need to place major orders, just enough shows already under our belt for the year that we are already tired, it's a big show, so we need to bring lots of stock, and backstock. Plus I am sure there are other forces in play as well...but whatever they all are they are certainly exhausting!
Almost 2 full months of preparation. A full week of 16+ hour days. A few fights, several dirty looks, late meals prepared by whatever local restaurant we can manage to handle eating at yet again. Burning shoulders, aching backs, swollen wrists and cramping hands....
All that to go sell beads! LOL Who woulda thunk it!
In any event, Shawn and Sara are finally on the road! YAY!
I've mowed the front lawn, watered the roses, cleaned part of the house, with a few rooms left to go, and I am determined all these chores will be done and over by dinner time. Then I will sit down to a nice meal, maybe a glass of wine, some good music, or a Giants game if I'm lucky and then......
I GET TO START BEADING!!
Here is a scan of the fabric I'll be using for my Beaded Art Quilt for my BFAC project.
I had another fabric all picked out, but Thom stopped by on his way up to a Retreat with this same fabric, but with a Cobalt Blue background and I fell in love. I had to go find some! He inspires me in more ways than either of us will ever know, I am sure!
I'll get this all stitched together and start the beading and will take it with me when I fly out Tuesday for the Bead & Button show to have something to work on while flying.
Then when I get home, I'll get to start on my Bead Journal for June!
