I can't believe how unbelievably busy I have been this month, where did it go?! Just wanted to check in and let you all know that I sold 6 more of the small bags today. They are on their way to the Saturday Market in Oregon where they seem to be very popular! I'm very happy about that!

Also, wanted to get you all excited about the giveaway I will be doing when I get back from vacation next month. My pattern has been tested and approved by some very important gals in my life, I think I'm ready for an inital release to measure the interest. So, I will be gone for a few weeks, but when I get back, there will be fun to be had by all!

Flea Market Pic

Here is that picture I promised almost a week ago, of my bags at the flea market in Oregon. The two that were sold last weekend were the black and white bag shown just to the right of the middle bag and the Oak Street bag on the bottom right in Amy Butler's Morning Glory. I haven't heard if anything sold this weekend, but I will hopefully be making some more bags for this gal as the month goes on. Now I'm just trying to decide what to make more of, and what fabrics to use. Any suggestions of fabrics you would like to see my bags made up with? My friend at the Fabric Farm has a TON of new fabrics and I can't decide what to order, help me!!!

Quick Update

Just wanted to give you all a quick update. I have been sewing, just a bit, on Christmas gifts actually. Those that know my husband and I, know that we start every year in July with Christmas and are usually done before Thanksgiving. It usually makes us the envy of everyone we know, but keeps us sane! So, I can't post pictures here because the presents will be seen before the holiday, but I am making some CUTE stuff!!

My pattern has been successfully tested by two of the four testers. Both gave it very good reviews, with just some minor changes. Once I get feedback from the other two testers, I will move forward with printing and marketing. Not sure when that will be, but I'm okay with that. Just kind of resting right now, enjoying the summer!

Also, an update on those bags that I sold last week, they got rave reviews in their new retail location. I guess that two of them have sold. I haven't gotten any details yet, but I will keep you all posted! I'm just so excited that they are such a big hit, maybe I can get some new fabric and make some more, between Christmas projects that is! ;} So long for now....
