Traveling Road - Show

I had every intention of sewing today, really I did.
Several projects are waiting in the wings,
begging to be started, completed, dreamed.
But you know as well as I do, sometimes
reality steps in and whacks you straight across the kisser.

Terry's Traveling Road - Show.
This traveling road - show that I call my company
is high maintenance to say the least!
There’s displays, tables, chairs, canopies, tarps, dollies, corner weights….
Bla, bla, bla!
All of which, at some point or another, need
maintaining/repairing.

Pail-o-concrete!
Last week it was the weights.
4 - 80lbs. pails of concrete that we tie at each corner of the canopy.
Sometimes it can get pretty windy here in North Texas!
Pails are worn out/cracked/falling apart.
Ok, chisel/beat off old pails, replace with new/recycled ones.
(I order my palm and coconut oils in 5# pails, perfect for the weights).

This week, canopies/ dolly!

Let me just start off by saying, hurricanes in the gulf, mean mucho rain here!
I’m not complaining, just saying….
We’ve missed the last 2 Saturdays at The Farmer’s Market do to rain.

So, need to fix holes in canopies.

SO…

Today it was, patch holes in the canopies day and
fix flats on the good dolly day.
Soap + water in the shower is a good thing,
soap + water at a show, not so good.
Sewn and vintage items in the rain,
not so good either.

Mini Bags.

Vintage Items
I have 2 canopies,
one looked like it had been involved in a drive by,
the other?
Mice, puppy, starving child, hungry husband?
I don’t know!
Patch, seal, pray, done.

Fix a flat did the trick on the good dolly,
not that the other one is bad, it’s just not the good one!

Hopefully the weather is good for the weekend market.

Maybe some sewing tomorrow?
All hold hands and pray/chant.

Hope things are good on your end.

Till next time,
Bonjour

Satellites are not linking up in outerspace, damm hurricane!
I’ll be lucky if this even posts!
(Oops, that was a tad bit insensitive).

You're so funny! Good luck with having a great show,regardless of the many roadblocks in your path.They are only temporary, and you seem to have them covered anyway.You know the saying,"If it doesn't kill you, it will only make you stronger."And,too, there is the one my sister uses. "Lord,I'm asking you to give me patience, because if you give me strength, I'm liable to hurt someone."(You are a strong person.You will be OK.)
