The Lazy Daze craft festival was on Saturday. The weather was nice in general and a lot cooler than previous years. My booth spot was great and attendance seem good but unfortunately sales were not good. I received a lot of really nice comments on my quilts so very that was great. I also have a good selection of quilts now and new for this year is the smaller size that works great for babies, furry friends and also as wall hangings. I managed to make 12 small quilts and 9 larger ones. I am going to restock my esty shop very soon and see if I can generate any sales. It was really fun hanging out with my sister and her family so a fun a weekend overall. I just need to figure out a way to sell a bit more to make it worth it to go to the shows.

I just saw a post for a new sewing book called Sew What You Love: The Easiest, Prettiest Projects Ever on Grand Revival Designs. The book is sold here on Amazon. It is really cute and will need to be added to my sewing library. The author is very kindly giving away free bag patterns if you share the link to her book so I think I will start with the super cute market tote. Very fun. I also received two new sewing books for Christmas including Amy Butler's Style Stitches and Elizabeth Hartman's The Practical Guide to Patchwork. Both books are great and I can't wait to start a few of the projects.
