A leg up ...

Lots of sewing has been going on at this blog. It's just that this type of sewing is not fun to blog about. In thinking of something to post, I thought oh well, even if it is boring I should still post something about it.

I am officially going to have a booth at the Backwoods Fest this September! It's in Thornville, Ohio on September 14, 15, & 16. I'm really excited to see how my sewing things will do and a little nervous at the same time. I'm worried I won't have enough things, maybe people won't like my stuff ... the list goes on and on.

I plan on taking lots of quilts, aprons, pot holders, kitchen towels, casserole holders, table runners, purses, clutches, change purses, and baby receiving blanket/burp clothes/bib sets. I am currently working on the latter of the projects. It is a lot of boring sewing, which makes for boring blogging.

But I did find a score recently that should help my display. My friend LaDonna gave me 3 old ladders. These are the kind of ladders that are good for little else than a good fire. They are not sturdy enough to stand on, but they should display my quilts and purse nicely.

These ladders are wooden and basically gray. They have some drips of various paint colors from years of use. I am trying to decide if I should paint them black or leave them gray. Time will tell.

Hopefully, they'll give me a leg up on the competition!
