I know a lot of people have a hard time with Mondays.
Turns out I really like them. I mean, of course it’s not fun to clean up from the fallout of the weekend. But I enjoy being able to have a fresh start, see how much better this week can be than the last one. I guess it’s like starting a new year, only on a smaller scale. A more manageable scale. So! Today, my plan is to take back some library books, return a swimsuit (or two!) that just don’t work (thanks Costco!), dream up some new projects in the hammock while the kiddos ride some bikes, and hopefully (crossing fingers) put a few plants in the ground. I know it’s crazy late, but the weather has been so ridiculous around here, I’m only now starting to trust that the snow might not come back for a few months. Send some good weather vibes my way, would ya? I’d really like some flowers in my flower beds, and a few veggies in my garden. (And NOT what happened last year.)
What are YOU doing on this lovely Monday?
And meet them, I did. (Pictures of friends, soon.)
Didn’t get pictures of other booths, because I couldn’t really leave mine for more than a few minutes at a time. (But I think there are enough pictures floating around out there that you’ll get to see the amazing talent going on…)
One quilt market down, dozens to go.
Somehow, I think this was the hardest and it will all get easier from here on out, because I know what to expect.
Quilt market=made of awesome.
Size options, a table topper, a bag, and a baby playmat? My my, branching out.
I love them all, but seriously? That Russian Rubix is to DIE for up close and in real life–and that Josephine Kimberling knows how to make some gorgeous fabric. (I feel like I’m picking a favorite child.)
Get them while they’re hot. First 10 orders get a free surprise with their order, cause I love you guys.
They’re in the shop.
Spotlights on each pattern after market (wish me luck).
Do you love them as much as I do?
PS: If you’re coming to market, come see me in booth #2243!
I’ve been in a cave for the last 2 weeks. Well, that’s how it feels, anyway. I’ve been finalizing things for quilt market, and believe me when I tell you that as a first timer exhibiting, I’m in WAY over my head. Seriously, there are so many things I had never considered. Makes me respect the people who do this twice a year so. much. more. It’s been a learning process, for sure.
It’s been fun, too, though. I’ve had a great time helping my mom, who is new to quilting, learn how to make a simple project from one of the new patterns.
Oh! You want to see the new patterns?
I know, I know, I told you’d I’d start showing off (last) Monday.
Yeah. Hence the no posting this week.
Next week? New patterns galore. (I mean it this time.)
Thanks for all the love and encouragement, guys.
Makes all this cave dwelling worth it.
Right now I am crazy for any browns and blues or pinks. I love the browns and all the fabric in this line.
Congratulations! Can’t wait to see what you do with it! Email me with your address at firstname.lastname@example.org (And if you’re looking for a project to use it on, I happen to know a beautiful throw can be made using it. Check back on Monday!)
