Getting Ready For Farm Chicks

Many of my friends are getting ready to hit the road to attend the Farm Chicks Antique Show in Spokane, Washington this weekend. Most of them are vendors and the rest of us are shopping!!!

In preparation for the trip, I made a liner for my little shopping cart. It was really fun and there were so many possibilities to consider. I knew I wanted something that reflects my work and it had to have a pocket for my water bottle. I think I managed to nail it. I used a brown and ecru ticking and lined it with a little ecru and cream print cotton. I added a floral linen panel down the front and edged it with brown tatting. The top edge is an old tablecloth with crocheted lace.



I made an over-sized tag with my business name and embellished it with scraps of fabric, ribbon, lace, tulle, etc. It is definitely "me"!

I will take many, many pictures to share with you next week. In addition to shopping, we will celebrate Diane's (Molly Mo's) birthday! WOO HOO! Once we return, I will need to get serious and start making things for the July 4th antique show in Silverton. I have lots of ideas and need to get busy. Take care and have a great week. M.

Martha, your shopping cart liner is adorable. It really is so you! Can't wait to see you up in Washington. Right about now I am wishing I was just a shopper and not a vendor. So much to do and I'm running out of time. Oh well, it is still going to be a ton of fun!

Hugs,
