Thanks all.  I will see what I can do to add a place setting.  Great suggestion.

And again, more awesome projects.  After I get through this show season, I will be back commenting on individual projects.  As always, you are an inspiring lot.

I am so hopelessly behind I can't even begin to comment on all the awesomeness you have going on here. 

A few pics of the trial set up of my booth for this weekend. 

My badge display.

A few of the wrapped bangles.

A badly photoshopped picture trying to show samples of the Christmas ornaments.

Spud 3 and the Mister made this awesome mannequin for me.  I still need to put some badges on the upcycled string backpack.

This is what I have to display the upcycled napkins.  I'm not crazy about it and am open to suggestions and ideas.

Wow.  These are terrible pictures and my is a disaster, having been consumed by show prep.  Oh well.  It gives you and idea of the stuff I've been working on.

Picture dump.  Sorry, some of these photos are fuzzy.  I was trying to get pictures at the show with my phone and it just wasn't working.

These are Yetis.  Boy blacksmith is in Nepal building a brewery and unable to attend the event so it seems only fitting that there be yetis and prayer flags.  The yeti design is from Urban Threads.

Chickens and other stuffies.  The little rodent snuck in, he was not supposed to be in the sale but I didn't notice until I got home.  I'll have to pull him tomorrow.  The face on the star is UT.  The face on the blue man is one I digitized.  The patterns are mine.  These are prototypes.  You can't really see the turkey on the right but he is an old project and you've probably already seen him.

I shouldn't include this picture but it is the only one I have that shows the frame full of badges and the rack of sunpainted shirts.  The shirts are not new projects and don't count toward my fifty.  The badges, well there are hundreds of them. 

The wine bottle cozy is a last minute project.  I love the ruler ribbon on them but if they don't like it, it is just a quick snip and they can substitute their own.  These are made from blue jeans.  There is one old and one new pumpkin in the picture.  I made at least a dozen of various sizes this year.  To the right of the wine are a couple of the prayer flags.  I made a few samples and whole bunch of DIY kits.  The lower left show some of the coffee cup cozies I made.  Again, primarily out of old blue jeans.

Hedgehogs, zombies and stars.  The first two are UT patterns intended to be stuffies, but I decided to make them into flatties with ribbons to hang.  More efficient for me that way and I am sick of stuffing from all of the chickens!  The stars are made from.... wait for it.... old blue jeans.  That is a pattern I digitized.    The little orange thing is a creeper printed by boy blacksmith on his 3D printer.  There was a group there doing full body scans and 3D prints. People were making their own mini-mes!

This last picture is the worst of the lot but it is the only one that shows the magic bags and earrings.  I made about 80 pairs of Free Standing Lace earrings using designs from Sonya Showalter (an awesome designer!).  I know you can't see a thing but there are shamrocks, treble clefs, pumpkins, skelatons, spiderwebs, butterflies, dragon flies and cardinals. (it is October in StL after all.)  You can also see the peek-a-boo pals.  Another project I drew and digitized myself.  And another project made out of old blue jeans. 

I didn't get any pictures of the lanyards, market bags, string backpacks or karate kid headbands.  I'll try to do that when I get back tomorrow.  I didn't take candles or soap so no pictures of those either.  I think I blew past 100 projects awhile ago but who is counting anymore.

Two more shows and then maybe I can get back to quilting.  Whew!

You all have been busy!  Amazing progress on your quilting Kook.  AW some great stuff.  Love the bag Mare.  Everyone else fantastic.  

One wee project for me.  

I was never ever ever going to do hexies.  But then I was drawn to the dark side.  The real problem with such a tiny project is that it makes the whole process seem doable.  Must. Resist. Starting a new project.

I am so far behind on this thread and on posting my projects I don't even know where to start.  I gave myself 30 minutes and started about 20 pages back.  blew right through that time admiring all of the awesome things you have been making. 

Having been following many of you on these 50 projects and other places in craftster it is always thrilling to see how your crafting has changed and improved.  I am blown away by the way you have all stepped up your game developing your skills and/or mastering new ones.  Fantastic.

Thank you all for sharing your creativity here!  It is truly inspiring.
