Getting ready for the show

You know what I love? Beaded fringe. It's so swingy and beautiful and I love the way that it moves in waves, like the ocean or a field of wheat. You know what I don't love making? If you guessed beaded fringe, you'd be dead-on :) I have one inch of fringe left to do (plus some simpler beading at the top), and I feel like I've been doing this forever. I have; I think it's taken about 25 hours to do the other 21 inches of fringe. It looks fabulous, though. I chose to make the fringe fairly dense so that it would provide more coverage.

Yes, my life is consumed by this fringe, at least until tonight. Tomorrow, I'm making necklaces. The show is on Saturday and I have 40-odd pairs of earrings (about half have not been posted in my etsy store) but no necklaces. And I have to make a necklace to match a particular pair of earrings. I have two or three ideas for that one.

Friday I'll be getting the non-product stuff ready, like the fixtures and things like that. Ian is going to take photos for me tomorrow, than goodness - some of the things I've made haven't been photographed, and I want to have a photo of everything I've sold. In case I sell anything on Saturday.

Congratulations on being almost done the fringe! That was really fast! If you need help tomorrow, let me know. I'm surprisingly not that busy working on this stupid thesis proposal thingy. And post the show location on facebook so I can send all two of my Brantford friends :)

Okay, I just realized that sounded a bit snarky. I meant, the second half was really fast, not overall. At least, it seems like it went fast but maybe it's just me. I'm sure it feels like forever to you.
