Fall Tablerunner and more St. James Market

We had a great day at farmer's market today. Got to visit with some other vendors that sell fresh corn and wow, it was delicious. I don't think fresh produce (from the garden to your belly) can be beat.
I finished a table runner around 10pm Thursday evening and was at market with it Friday morning around 6am. My mom kept hiding it as she wants it for herself!

I try to show off other vendor's things as we have some unique crafters. We of course have awesome farmer's that work hard bringing produce. I used to buy green beans all of the time at market, then figured I'd save money by planting my own. Have you ever picked several pounds of beans? This is back breaking work for someone in their 30s adn most of our produce people are in their 40s and up to their 70s. They pick this stuff by the bushel. Hard, hard workers that take a lot of pride in what they do.

Onto Rodney this week. Rodney is a very talented man that makes glass ornaments, suncatchers, not sure what you want to call them, but they are beautiful. Rodney likes to visit with people, so sometimes he doesn't get to do a lot of work. He will sit there and make these beautiful hummingbirds, pendants, right in front of you and will even explain it all and teach you. Another heart of gold here!

I will try to get some close up pictures of these glass birds and pendants he makes as they are breathtaking. When the sun hits them, the colors are fascinating.

Busy busy Drusy quartz

We have been listing lots of our drusy quartz on ebay and it's been selling okay. We are doing flat rate box fulls. They are getting awesome deals on this drusy, so be sure to check out ebay id mo3fan and sometimes rocknutt459. Copy and past the following link for drusy quartz

Some pictures of the things I've been making.

The pink/green flower quilt was sold at last week's market and is on it's way to Costa Rica. Most of the tote bags have sold and I really need to make some more. We have added wine gift bags, dish soap aprons and some "boxy" style zip close bags to the mix now as well. I also have 2 table runners waiting to be completed to add to everything.

We have some unique crafters at the St. James Farmer's Market as well. This gentle makes some neat things if you are a car buff or a Route 66 buff.

Candle sales have been up so running low on the selection. We will be adding more here very soon. Every little bit helps to pay the bills!
