Finally Sunshine!

We have been so dreary, cold and raw that when the sun finally did show it was something to celebrate!

I have finished and bound my commission rug.
Now all I have left is a rod pocket and a label. I will be so glad to see the end of this rug. I can not wait to work on my own pieces. 

This is the second year that husband has sold at a local vintage fair.
He had a space with his brother and niece.  He did quite well and really enjoys the time with his family.
They stay with us so it makes for a busy weekend, but lots of laughs. I did go to the fair but didn't purchase anything I am trying very hard to not add to all I have. Plus I am cheap!
Have a wonderful week my sweet blog friends!

Congrats on finishing the commission piece and hubby's success at the vintage show. Wow! I don't think I could have come home empty handed!

If you sold your rugs at the Fair, then you'd have $$$ to buy more rug hooking supplies.

Gurlfren, I'm so happy that commission is gone. I've been there with both rugs and dollmaking so know all the scenarios. Guess it is safe to say you'll never commit to another commission I right??

So glad you had some sunshine. We are back in the rain pattern. I would never be able to not purchase something at a have better self control than I do. I could not see much of your commision rug, but glad you were able to finish it. Glad hubby and family did well at thesale. Janice

I love going to vintage fairs and flea markets and resale shops. You are better than me with spending...I can hardly resist getting some treasure..or two! Glad you saw the sun! Hopefully it will continue to shine this week. We've had 2 days in a row then back to rain. I can only mow part of my yard as the other parts are sooo soggy! Take care!

It was so nice to have sun today, the rain does get depressing.
Great that you had success at the show and nice that you can share it with family.

HI Cathy,
Wish I could send you some of our sunshine!! It is definitely something AZ has a LOT OF!!! We actually did have some rain the other day though, and I enjoyed it since it is rare!!! Sure you would be more than happy to trade!!
So glad you got your rug done and can move on to something for yourself!!!
The booth looks like a fun spot and so happy your hubby did well!!!
Take care and hope you have a great week!
Heart Hugs~

That vintage fair would be fun to visit, I would likely find something I "need" and buy it.
