More Market Madness

Good Morning!

Hopefully today the computer and I are going to get along. I wish we had more pictures of booths to share with you, but we took more pictures of things we have coming, or people who in our world are "famous". Keep checking back we have something very exciting to share with you! Also check out the Make Life Sweet Blog. We all signed their apron they were giving away, and right now on their blog you can see a picture with our names on it!

Market Madness

Market was once again fabulous. We had an absolute blast. We have lots of fun and exciting goodies to tempt you. A lot of new patterns made their way into my suitcase and many more are arriving. Most of Crab.Apple Hill's new patterns and lots of other embroidery patterns. New thread, floss, wool (lovely wool), wool patterns, notions, and of course fabric, fabric and more fabric.

We are so blessed to have such talented fabric and pattern designers. Thank you to all who share their creative talents. The only thing I brought home that wasn't wanted was a cold! The people of Salt Lake City were excellent hosts, and the restaurants were tasty. The weather ---- sunny!!!

I would love to share photos with you, but I am fighting with the computer. I will post pictures tomorrow after I win this battle.

From California to Wisconsin and back and off to Salt Lake City!

My what busy times these are. Every day is shorter and the to do lists get longer. So I thought I'd share a quick look at some of the fabric lines that have come in. Of course we have some great new batiks, Grunge basics by Moda, and Sweet Sixteen by Laundry Basket Quilts.

Mark and I had the honor of attending a dear friend's wedding in Madison WI. Since we were already buying an airline ticket we decided to go two days early and do some quilt shop hopping. What a delight going to other quilt shops and we found some dandies. The best find was a new wool source. Take a look at these colors! We are really excited about adding a lot more wool and wool projects to the store along with more classes.

New wool!

So I know, you are wondering what is up with the Piggly Wiggly? Well I have never seen a Piggly Wiggly so I thought it should be documented. Cute huh?

It's not too late to request goodies from market. Jen and I are leaving Thursday morning and we would love to have your input.

Enjoy the sun and live every day to the fullest.
God Bless
