A winner! (And art fair wrap-up)

Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by and visited my blog during the Sew, Mama, Sew! giveaway.  I really enjoyed reading all of your comments and hearing from each and every one of you!  Plus, I now have some new books to check out for summer reading.

I used the random number generator on to draw the winner of the apron.  And the apron goes to... drum roll, please... comment number 3:

Congratulations, Happy-crochet-chic-person!  I'll be contacting you for your mailing info.

The art fair yesterday was really fun.  I was a bit worried about the weather forecast (gusty winds and a chance of thunderstorms!), but the day, and my location under big shade trees, turned out to be perfect!  I loved seeing many friends and familiar faces, and enjoyed the excuse to just hang out a bit.  I've been making and making non-stop lately, but yesterday I only made one itty bitty thing during the entire ten or so hours of the fair!  Aside from the setting up and taking down, it was sort of a day off for me.  That's me, setting up in the morning!

I arranged my tent with t-shirts on one side and all my other stuff (paper goods, felted things, bags, tea towels, etc) on the other.  I think the display turned out pretty well, but I'm always learning when I do these events, and I've got some new ideas for next time.  Applications are due soon for Chicago's Renegade Craft Fair... and I think I'm finally gathering the courage to apply.
