Saturday Market

Last Saturday my friend Louise(sitting) and I helped "man" a booth at the local Saturday Street Farmers Market day in my town! As you can see it was to sell tickets for our Opportunity Quilt "Trees" from http://llqg.org Louise is really a good ticket sales gal! The little table held fabric blocks that were stenciled with cute objects,flowers,dinosaurs,etc. We encouraged the children that came by w/parents to sit down in the adorable 1950's chairs and color w/the crayons and gave them instructions so they could then use the block on a Tee Shirt or pillow,etc. It was a slow and hot day and there were not many vendors. Good thing it was only until 12 p.m! The ticket sales were actually pretty good considering the small "crowd". But we had fun seeing folks that we hadn't seen for a long time and "chatting". Elizabeth (standing) is the "Chairman" she has volunteered to "do" this for the next few months in various events around our county! It is a lot of work setting up and taking down. After we folded up and loaded everything into Elizabeths truck we then walked around the corner to have lunch at the only resturant in this little town. Yum-O! Well, my sisters are arriving today from Washington state and will be here for the rest of the week! I have much to do in preparing for their arrival! I am so behind!
