happy monday everyone!
the image above is what was inside the bag - and the lucky winner of all these lovely things is betsy mckay - congratulations!, please email me by 6pm EST today or another winner will be chosen. thank you to all of you for entering the giveaway and for all your kind words.

we spent the weekend at the qwac and it was truly fantastic, I had j with me all weekend which brought me back to our early craft show days and thanks to my sis for watching the kids all weekend. I have done a lot of outdoor shows and I would have to say this was by far the best one for us. it was our first time doing the show and even though I heard great things I didn't have high expectations - I am happy to report that the smock aprons were a big hit and they are on my list of things to make more of for online as well as the next craft show. it truly did look great on all body types and the moment someone tried it on they were just as smitten as I was with it. it really gave me hope about other clothing type things in the near future. the other item that was a big hit was the calendar - I had the months all strung up and that really caught people's attention and thanks to all of you that bought them online too (they have already been shipped out) and of course our staple of bags were also a big hit, we had customers come for their growing collection of bookhou bags, it was real pleasure to see you all again new and old friends and I hope you enjoyed the show just as much as we did, you all make those hard working days really worth it!

today is a day of meetings for me and a lot of administrative work, but I hope I can carve out some time to do a ton of sewing. have a great day friends! xxa
