panic stations!

This is what my kitchen table looks like. Pretty & peaceful.

This is what my work table looks like. Argh! Finders Keepers is very very soon, so I'm busily sewing up some last minute things. I have a heap of stock, but I must be prepared. What if, you know, someone wanted 10 loveheart purses but I'd only made 8? Distaster, right?

I think at some point today I'm just going to have to accept that the world won't collapse if I don't have 1000* purses or some other over-large number. At that point I will go back into the lovely, peaceful kitchen, make a cup of chai, and relax.

*Okay, that's not actually how many purses I want to make. It sounds impressive though!

Edited to add
P.S. Please come introduce yourself if you're at the market (if you want to)! I am always so scared when I introduce myself to people whose blogs I read, but it's so nice to say hi!
P.P.S. I have figured out what to wear both days! At least if I have no purses, I will look nice.
P.P.P.S. Our stall is next to Lightly! I think 2 days of not spending money there may be quite tricky.

Have an order form at the ready, m'dear!

You'll be fine, you'll almost sell out of everything, (because your stuff is awesome), but not quite (because that would stress you).

Just do what you can, and then pack everything up ready to go the day before, giving you the whole evening to sit back (maybe in a bubble bath), relax and store up your energy.

It'll be SO great!

Good luck at the market, it sounds like you're VERY prepared, so don't despair! I'll make sure I say hi, when I come by :)

It will be a simply wonderful weekend... And am hoping to stop by to say a quick hello on Sunday :)

Good luck at the market!

BTW- I'm loving your kitchen table. I love marigold, and often fill a jug for my table, too.

Oh Penny! Good luck!!
... and don't forget to have fun.

I am glad you worked out what to wear I would find that most stressful. x

I'll pop by & say hi, I'm planning to come, as long as some kid induced disaster doesn't strike.
