Spring Events, New Logo &  Bags of Fortune 

I am proud to present to you my new banner and logo.  I originally had a small banner made for my Etsy shop and it was much smaller and just had Becky's pillow shop written on it.  Then I decided I liked it so much I wanted a new sign/banner to hand up at events so this is what it will look like when it arrives!  I was a volunteer missionary in Togo, West Africa for over a year so I love the African theme items and especially the Safari animals!   This pattern was taken from the fabric I used to make  some beautiful place mats for Lion's Lair.  
 I have been busy sewing some new bags and aprons for spring. I am getting ready for the Earth Day Celebration in Shepherdstown on April 26, and possibly the Berryville Main Street Yard Sale on April 12. Also I was asked by someone on the " board" of the Purcellville Town Farmer's Market to be a vendor at  this summer, which is exciting.  Whoo-Hoo! I think he liked my wares, and even gave me ideas of what to concentrate on making .  Apparently, you have to be approved by the board to participate!   I met him at a vendor event I participated at recently in Charles Town, WV.   My Aunt Shirley was visiting from North Carolina that weekend.  She recycles sweaters and makes beautiful handbags from them, all different & very unique, so she went with me to the event and took her bags.  They are called " Bags of Fortune".  "Unfortunately" no pun intended-  they don't come with great fortune, but  with lots of love from Shirley Fortune.  My Uncle Mac, her brother, jokes and says she has had lots of "mis-fortune" which is actually pretty true.  Check out some pictures of the bags below. They are only $25 each. They are all lined with pockets inside and magnet closure (magnets are under lining) . There are a few that aren't made from sweaters, but I posted pictures of a few of the spring/summer bags.   I kept them and am going to try and sell them for her, so if you are interested please e-mail me  and I can give more details and send more pictures.

I have lots of new spring items on my Etsy store, and adding things daily .  I am trying to get 100 items listed so check out my new items.

Congratulations on being asked to be a part of the Farmer's Market. You'll have to let us all know how that went for you!

Thanks. I will. That will not start until the middle of June and I think it is every Saturday. :)
