The Santa Rosa Riverwalk arts festival (in Milton, Florida) was really nice. It was so gorgeous to be right next to the water, and the days were clear and sunny, even if the wind and cold on Saturday almost froze us to death.

I went with my sweet friend Liz, who makes gorgeous custom hand-embroidered pillows.

Here’s some of her awesome work. Let me know if you’re interested in commissioning a piece, and I’ll get her in touch with you!

Unlike at the last craft show, there were lots of helping hands around. Liz and I each had husbands to help set up big things, and our dear friend Cye accompanied us and helped chat up the visitors. Everyone’s company made it an especially pleasant weekend.

I had my new card rack and stationery display set up, which I thought was pretty spiffy. I also figured out how to do a nice two-level effect with the bias tape, by propping up the back basket on an overturned bowl.

And I wrapped my baby blankets all prettily in a band of brown paper with coordinating satin ribbons.

On Sunday, I came a little more prepared for cold weather, wearing my giant blue sweater that unfortunately makes me look like a linebacker. I think I need to donate this sweater… not too flattering, though I love the color and how it feels.

We demonstrated our crafts…

And some happy customers went away with their new purchases. This girl was especially exuberant, and VERY excited about her new apron, which she plans to wear as an over-skirt as part of her normal daily outfits. You can’t tell in this picture, but she was bouncing around telling us how pumped she was about all of the aprons. How great is that?

    Your booth display looks really nice! you guys are so lucky to be able to do outdoor shows already too. Our snow is gradually melting, and I’m very envious that you have lush green grass right behind your booth!!! 🙂

    I love the blue fleece sweater – it matches your table cloth!

    Can I ask where you get your fabric for your baby blankets and zipper pouches? It is too cute! I am always looking for fun fabric, but I don’t have much luck where I live.

    Yeah she is working it! You have to put her in your listings! That looks really neat as her normal wear.

    The lack of overt enthusiasm by apron girl is vastly eclipsed by the fact that she’s Working. It. Out. in the photograph.
