Thanks so much for sharing about the show! I would have loved to be there. I went to a show at Petaluma this year, (Halloween and Vine) but no photos were allowed. I know it is a lot of work to create a post about a big event, so thanks for going the extra mile for us, your readers.

I am so very sorry that you didn't get the apron in time- did it fit? did you like it anyway? I hope so. I hope you can wear it next year. I have the other one almost finished and will put pictures on Flickr when its done- this one is a few inches longer than the other one. The show looks like it was awesome- you almost sold out didn't you? That's great! Nicol Sayre is one of my favorite artists too! Please let me know what you think about your apron when you get time.
