The Calm Before The Storm

Well folks, we are at "T" minus 3 sleeps and counting to G&K's first market outing.

The last 7 days have been super productive, at times super stressful and above and beyond both of these, very rewarding, especially when we stood back earlier this afternoon and gazed upon our creation.

This time last week, I could hear Ree cursing leggins and weggins (which she doesn't want to see another pair of for a long, long time) and the sound of pen on paper crossing jobs off and adding others to the never ending lists.  We were thankful for the gadgets that make sewing sooo much easier and "Makita" our faithful boom box borrowed from my brother, Michael.

Speaking of my brother, a big thank you to he and my Dad for making display units and structures that will no doubt survive the Armageddon along with the cockroaches.  Between them they too have some seriously cool gadgets, ie Milwaukee the all singing, all dancing drop saw.

This week, Maree has taught me the boring joys of painting with high gloss enamel paint.  All those years of late night painting came flooding back to her.  If we thought we could use a found item and it wasn't white, it soon was. 

Now the bunting is painted, the table cloth ironed, the items placed and the pricing is everywhere. So all thats left are of all those horrid little jobs that no-one really likes doing but are necessary. Extra stamped cards, threads snipped off, garments pressed and the tetris-like job of packing it all in the back of one car.

And just in case you haven't already seen, heard or read the flyer, here it is one more time.  10-2, 99 Leinster Grove Thornbury.  All handmade, local and way to fab for words.  See you there.

See you on the other side of the storm.

P.S. Here is a sneaky peeky at some of Saturday's wares. Kxx
