Fall Creative Needlework Market


One more belly picture can't hurt, huh? But you want to see the booth and the dresses! Okay, here we go!


Here are four of those sweet fall dresses that I was busy sewing last week. You will see more of these next week because I'm taking the girls out for a photo shoot. I'll tell you all about the fabrics in that post too.


With the fall dresses and all I decided to use some fall decorations too! I even burned a pumpkin spice candle. Oh I love fall......one day maybe it will feel like fall here....



Ben built this little pattern stand, out of small trees in our back yard, like two days before market! How cute is that? It went so well with the homespun feel of our booth. I was so happy with it, but Ben says he has a better plan for spring....which means I will have to change the booth up a bit. That should be fun but it's always a little nerve wracking trying to think up a new set-up. I'll think about that when it gets here.


And there you have it, that was the booth tour. I am so excited about the fall pictures next week! I made my little nieces, Lily and Iris, fall dresses too so this may be a cuteness overload! I plan to take them to an old cabin, along with a few pumpkins and fall leaves, I can't wait! We are supposed to have some "almost" fall weather next week too (like not in the 90's) so that will be exciting too. See you guys soon! xo, Sam

Oh! Sam, everything is so beautiful! Fall is also my favorite time of year. It's so refreshing after a long hot, humid summer. I'm dying to get out of the 90s!! This week I even went on strike and wore a long sleeved shirt. Yeah, it didn't last long. HA. Can't wait for your little photo shoot! I'm loving all the colors in the fabrics. Have a great weekend!

I think your booth was my favorite at market Sunday. I could have stayed and talked with you and your sweet husband all day. I am happy that I found your blog so I can keep up with your family. I'm looking forward to your trunk show at my new shop....Sew Close To Home. I'm opening Oct. 19th.

The booth looks wonderful. It makes me want to go and sew--very inspiring.
And congratulations on your upcoming addition! I did expect something related to sewing and patterns--maybe a book project or something along that lines. This is much more exciting! How funny that the kids never picked up on it. Best wishes for you and your family!

These are just so beautiful. So feminine and vintage. Makes me wish (again) that I had a little girl to sew for again, but alas she's now 19 and I borrow her clothes LOL.So glad I found your blog.

I'm an infrequent reader who checks in every so often, from the Crafty Quilter's Closet blog. I just wanted to say congratulations on all the new babies on the way. I hope all goes well with the pregnancy and the adoptions.
