Off to Market I go .... day 2!

Today was schoolhouse .... what a day!  My morning ritual is to pick the sessions I think will be of interest. So much to choose from!

It's a day filled with information .... I come out of there brain dead! lol

Afterwards is sample spree.  I must say, it wasn't as packed as usual.  A good thing! Sadly, I didn't buy much. Not sure why, but I wasn't in the mood.  Perhaps I need to get my head checked! lol

Did get this stinking cute bag from Riley Blake!

If you spent so much, you got the bag ... well I made sure I spent so much! You understand right? They also had these cute smaller bags you could purchase!

So now I'm styling! Of course I had to get me some Zombie Love - 1 yard cut!

Once I got over the zombie thing, I picked up a Cotton Steele FQ bundle from RJR. I just love those colours! Not sure what I'm going to do with it besides fondle it ......

I must admit, it's the first time I spend so little at Sample Spree! I really wanted to buy but couldn't find anything .... Maybe I should call my doctor?

Off to process my day!  Thanks for stopping by!  Cheers!

Off to Market I go ....!

Arrived in Houston early Thursday morning. Goodness it's hot and humid! Didn't do much except walk around a bit and stopped at my favourite Mexican restaurant - Guadalaja Del Centro - and had one of these.

It's official ... I am now in International Quilt Market Mode! Cheers!

And the beat goes on .....!

Wow, I cannot believe I haven't posted in a month. Where has time gone? I kid you not, yesterday I lost an hour somewhere. Has anyone seen it? I had plans to attend the local guild meeting at 6:00 p.m. Closed shop at what I thought was 5:00 p.m. Hopped in my car, drive out of the parking lot, checked the clock and it was 6:15 p.m. What the heck???? Pointless driving down, I'll miss half the meeting!

Anyway, last weekend I vended for the very first time. Never having done this before, I did not accurately calculate the amount of time it would take me to prep everything. There were many late evenings, attempting to look organized. Lesson learned!

We set up booth early Saturday morning, and this is what my booth looked like:

Other side:

I had no idea that my booth was going to be this large! What a fun experience it was for me, met some wonderful quilters.

On the quilting front, I machine quilted Fivrol 1 - Kindred by Bonnie & Camille.

Love how it turned out! This is such a happy quilt ... Hello Darling! such a happy fabric line!

I also finished this little quilt using Holly Taylor's latest line - Winter Song. The pattern is called OSO by Carrie Nelson.  I used one charm pack for the center blocks and yardage for the rest.

I call this quilt, Bear Tracks through the Woods. Carrie's instructions is to use two charm packs and create a scrappy border, but I chose to use yardage.

So, what have you been up to? Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!
