It is really early in the morning and the crafters (and myself) are getting the last things done before the visitors come!
A lot of fresh fruits, healthy and tasty!
What about some homemade marmalade and jelly?
And Brezel (Pretzel) !
Granny’s kitchen is warm and cozy, would like a cup of coffee?
And of course a piece of cake, right?
I recommend the Apple Pie or Cheese cake, delicious as always!
Please choose a place where you…
would like to sit down…
and chat with me!
Ohh, I hear somebody calling my name!
The visitors are coming!!!
I have to go to my market stall because some people are asking for me.
And then, no break at all!…
The weather was very kind to us, it was windy, but no rain and the sun even appeared for a short while!
It was incredible how many people came by, I had no time anymore to take more photos … But, that does not mean I sold everything!!! (If my family depended on that for money, we would starve to death!!!!)
I had a lot of nice conversation all the time, there were many women interested in how quilts are done. They want to know where they can take classes and how long does it take to learn ( Aren’t we always learning? I tell them it is a lifelong process, if one gets the “quilt bug” one will never stop learning!).
A nice woman came and wanted to know which kind of batting I use for wall hangings, she even brought a little piece she bought to show me if it was the right one. Another one described how she recycles old clothes to make “new” ones, but she never tried to make a quilt with them – I told her maybe it is time to give it a try! A little girl thought that the place mats were Doll Quilts – I would think the same if I were a little girl, specially when she told me they only have “plastic” ones at home!. And there was a man who took his time to look everything , he seemed very interested, then he said “ I can’t buy anything because my wife sews too and she would be mad at me if I did!”, that made me laugh!!! I only realized how late it was when it started to get dark and cooler. The day passed by so fast! I was lucky with my selling and I even got some orders! Some place mats with stars for Christmas, a little pouch with polka dots and a cushion.
At home I felt really, really tired (twelve hours non stop…), but I just cannot complain, it was a lovely day for me and I hope for all the others and the visitors!
Wishing you a lovely and creative week!
