Apologies for the absence of several days. Wednesday was a busy day at the work conference, and Thursday I finished up, hopped in the car at 5:45, and drove back home from Richland, WA, in the dark, through the mountains. A bit nerve-wracking for me, but at least that kept me awake. Got home a little before 10pm, got my goods together to take to the hotel, and I made the mistake of sitting down. Big mistake. Needless to say, I didn't end up taking the goods to the hotel till yesterday morning.
I got one new piece completed yesterday, but it was so busy I'm surprised I managed that:
One of my fellow vendors helps me keep the others in line:
Hey, there's Phil Foglio! Oh, look, he's over there too! Huh?
And there is tea! The folks from B. Fuller kept us fueled with aromatic and tasty samples.
Here's my booth setup. My husband cross-braced the parasol stands so I haven't had the tipping problem that occurred at Penumbra a few weeks ago, and I love how they look all on display together:
Some lovely outfits to be seen, but the vendors' room isn't the best setting for pictures. Here's one I got last night on my way out, though.
One of the best things about these events is the visiting with friends I get to see too seldom:
A busy day ahead. Vendors' room is open from 10-6, and the Abney Park concert is this evening. Off we go!
