Sharing and a FREEBIE!

Hi Blog Friends,
It’s been very busy here at Prim Crafts, getting ready for the
Rt. 11 Yard Crawl.
Every year on the second Saturday in August there’s a 50+ mile yard sale in the Shenandoah Valley that runs down Route 11. This will be my 3rd year setting up in front of my house selling all my hand made items. Thousands of people flock to this event! I have the fortune of being next to a place that has 200 vendors setting up for this crawl. It’s so much fun and I love having customers that come just to see what I have to offer. I am so grateful for this. I’ve received quite a few emails asking if I’ll be set up again this year, YES, I wouldn't miss it for the world!
My sister and niece are coming to stay for the weekend too. She’s bringing a truck load of households to sell. My niece, Megan wants to set up a lemonade stand. I think that’s so sweet!
I just pray the weather will be nice Saturday.
Here’s a couple of pics of things I’ve been working to get done.
Forgotten Pumpkins! Pattern by My Primitive Saltbox.
Farm Ad Pumpkins ~ also by My Primitive Saltbox.
Witch hat bowl fillers.
Witch bust bowl fillers ~ pattern by Kentucky Primitives.
Simple Pumpkin Tucks.
I have quite a few other items I want to get done, but not sure I will. It really is a lot of work to set up and prepare for a show. I use to do shows several years ago and stopped because I got more lookers than buyers.  I only do this Yard crawl because there are so many wonderful people that I have come to know ~ only by faces, but enjoy seeing and they seem to buy.
While I was working on Halloween items, I wanted a simple witch face bowl filler and did not have any patterns for one.
So, I drew one out myself and am pleased with how they turned out.

I’m offering this pattern for free to all my followers!
If the link does not work, send me an email and I’ll be happy to forward the pattern to you.
I hope you like it and will enjoy making them as much as I did.
Still working on my fall giveaway, so be on the lookout for that announcement.
Have a great week and stay cool!
Blessings, Jean

  12. Hi Jean, If I could rent a helicopter I would come to your yard sale, sounds awesome, but I am afraid it would take me a couple hours to get there and home. He He I know your will do really well. And so glad you are having family there. Love all of your goodies as usual and thanks for the free pattern. Hugs, Lecia
