In anticipation of participating in a Christmas Craft Show, I have been making a review of what I might offer for sale. This has become a bittersweet exercise. It seems a long time since I have had a selling opportunity so this exercise has served as a bit of stock taking. Hmm……handknit hats, scarves, blankets……handcrochet also…….blankets/crochet and knit. Handwoven rugs. Also handwoven table runners. Oh and some socks as well. I have a lot of sewing in of ends to put the finishing touches on some of these items. I’ve taken a lot of photos just to have a record of my inventory. A few pictures to illustrate.
I wish I had had a bigger space and a sunny day and a wide expanse of green grass for my photography session. Maybe I should spread out a green sheet and try again.
One day last week I met with the quilters group at the local church. Now that was a real production line. I was one of the sewers and managed to do the stitching around the edges of 3 queen size quilts. That effort was very satisfying. When I finish my part, then the quilts get folded and boxed and sent to a more central organizing body of Lutheran World Relief. One feels that one’s work will eventually reach a destination where it is needed and appreciated. Maybe I should try to find something similar for knitting projects.
