The day before we left (Friday), I finished sewing all the 100 or so notebooks covers – my attempt to get ahead of making craft inventory for this fall and winter. After sewing (too long) in 30 degree heat (high 90s if you are in fahrenheit), it was literally a "sweat" shop in our apartment. I am still quite slow on the machine, so what would have taken a real sewer probably only a couple of hours, took me the entire day (and evening)... sigh. Now looking at the pile, I am debating on whether to make more... (is 100 books enough for a 4 day fair? hmm... maybe not?). I do know that I will plan my production around cooler weather, if I do make more.

We just got back from Portland, Oregon yesterday, where we spent our BC Day long weekend... the trip was fantastic and I am still sorting through all the photos... so you will have to wait until tomorrow to see some of the shots of our weekend adventure!
