Did you see me in Times Square?

A bit of fabulous news to share with everyone today!  If you've already seen me gushing all over Facebook and Instagram feel free to "move along". ;-)
For those few people in the world who don't already know, two of my hand crocheted scarves were featured on the NASDAQ's billboard in New York City's Times Square this afternoon!

Here's the original photo that I tweeted to Michaels Stores yesterday.

They were asking people to share photos with the hash tag #MadeWithMichaels so I did.  Just a couple of scarf photos and a photo of that cute Cherry cupboard makeover that I did recently.  Well, dang if they didn't tweet me back to ask if they could share it!

Little did I know that Michaels Stores was going to be selling their initial public stock offers today at the NASDAQ.  Thus the reason for the big party and celebration in Times Square.  They had a live feed on the NASDAQ billboard from 11 to 3:30 today where they shared the photos.  

Eagle eye that I am, I sat there and watched the live feed on my computer looking for my photos.  Around 12:30 and then 12:40 I was able to grab the screen shots of my scarves.  How cool is this?

Thanks for letting me share even though this has nothing to do with my jewelry blog.  I did share a little over on my VintageCherryShop blog where I sell my scarves here.

Now I can sit back and watch the $$ roll in...wink...wink...

Extra Large Cherry Oilcloth Market Tote Bag

Here's the last of my Cherry Oilcloth with the black background.  The Market Totes that I've been making have been a hit but this is the last of the the black background fabric.  I have some with an aqua background that is fabulous so that's what I'll be working with next.
I've made this one a little larger than the previous totes.  

This extra large oilcloth market tote measures 23 inches across the top of the bag, 17 inches high with a gusseted bottom of 6 1/4 inches wide. When the bag stands up and you take in to account the gusset the width at the bottom measures 16 inches side to side. The sturdy red webbing handles are 24 inches in length.

I've been carrying 3 of these shopping tote bags for over a year now and not a trip goes by that someone doesn't comment on my Super Cherry Market Tote bags. They still look fabulous even after a year of hefting around tons of groceries.

Thanks for stopping by and you'll find this Cherry Oilcloth Market Tote available here
