Everything is Sunny

I had a really good week-end at the Flea Market, more traffic than we have had since it opened 9 weeks ago.  It was rainy on Saturday morning, but about 1PM the sun came out.  I was 74 degrees on Sunday and today it is still sunny with temps in the mid 60s.  I got orders for my purses so I will spend the week sewing those orders and finishing some little girl dresses that I had already started. 

The only downer here is that there was a 5 year old girl missing here in North Carolina, and today about 1:30 they found her body in a wooded area in Lee County.  This story just keeps getting more weird as the days go on.  First they arrested the mother's boy friend.  The mother had reported that she put the child on the couch in the living room about 5:30 AM last Tuesday morning and at 6:30AM discovered she was missing.  The boyfriend was arrested and later released when a camera at a hotel in another town showed a man carrying her into the hotel that same morning at 6:10 AM.  Now her mother has been arrested for human traffic, prostitution of a child and child endangerment.  For some reason the authorities think she gave/sold the child into sexual servitude.  The man that was seen on the camera has also been arrested, he has admitted taking the girl, but claims he did not kidnap her.  It is just so darn sad. 

Here are some pictures of my sewing room mess.  I have to get in there and straighten things up, but right now I am only interested in getting my project done so I can get paid for them.  I cannot believe Thanksgiving is next week, I am not ready, can we postpone it for another week?  I thought not, but figured I would ask. 

Can you see the picture of Jerry Garcia next to my guitar? That tambourine sitting on the left side of his picture was given to me by a current member of the Dead back in 1969.  But that is a story for another time. 

Yep, there is a bed underneath all that 'stuff'.  What you cannot see is that there are a couple more bins of material sitting on the other side of the room.  What a mess, but I am having so much fun sewing that it is not even bothering me....YET! 


  1. I heard about the little girl being missing. The rest of the story is so sad.

    Don't feel bad about the sewing room. It looks like a fabric store exploded in my dining room. Thank goodness we eat in the kitchen.

    If you don't mind me asking, how much do you sell your purses for. Also do they have any kind of closure on them.

    Congrats again on the orders. Way to Go.

  2. I saw someone's kid wearing the hat and said I bet I could make it. The embroidered designed is purchased but you can use them on items to sell. Not sure what to charge for them. I can make 3 different sizes. S for small kids-toddlers, M fits my 9 year old daughter who's in 4th grade and L which will fit a teen/young adult.

    I need to get the word of mouth going and fast. Christmas is just around the corner!

  3. So sad about the little girl..

    Glad the sale went good....
