I know, I'm running WAY behind: The STRUT

So I love to work the East Atlanta Strut even though festivals are a) not profitable, b)a LOT of work, and c) exhausting. The Strut is fun because I get to see so many fun people! Its really a blast! I get there at 7:30, set up, wait, eat, eat, hang out, eat and throughout it all I sell some stuff.
I love these guys. There were 2 green dressed guys and they were FANTASTIC. The parade was a lot of fun and very silly. I love how big the STRUT is getting and sometimes wish I could volunteer instead of work a booth.
Look at my sock monkeys. I sold 2 out of the 5. I think I may make some more. They're a great way to use up scraps since they are 100% stuffed with quilt scraps I trim off. The one with red ears and red arms and the argyle one went to live with other people. I'm happy for the little guys.
My next fest is the Cabbagetown Chomp and Stomp. Its also a chili cookoff so you MUST go check it out! Its a blast but get there before noon or the chili will be gone. It always goes fast and this year will be bigger than ever!

Okay much to my chagrin the semi annual hog killin has gotten rid of the October event, which is probably why I couldn't find the regular ad in the Farmer's bulletin. So we will have to wait until February, but that will give you time to decide on an outfit:

Oooo...I didn't know you were making sock monkeys now. Cute! I'll have to pick one up.
