Market Pix- FINALLY!

Better late than never, right!?

This is a good pic of the CRAZY OLD LADIES booth.

We were on a corner, so this is the view from the other side.

I had so much fun! I'm still waiting for most of the pix from my Dad- the one's with all the 'cool' people in them. But here are a few that I took of some of my favorite booths.

Lila Tueller's booth featuring her new line Santorini (watch for a pattern coming soon made with this fabric!). LOVE this booth. So fun and funky and totally Lila. She even won an award for her booth. BTW- Lila was dressed in her clothes made from her fabric EVERYDAY and looked fabulous!

Of course, Fig Tree. This booth was amazing. Didn't get a picture of the entire thing but you can definately get the feel. Everything Fig Tree. Joanna also won an award for her booth for merchandising. I would say so.

Bonnie and Camille of ThimbleBlossoms had a darling booth. I wanted to pick it up and place it in my dining room. Their new line "Simple Abundance" is a new favorite of mine. Look for patterns using that line, too. Probably more than one since I love it so much!

OK. Being a semi-retired scrapbooker (geez, how much can a girl do!?) I just about died when I first started seeing patterns by Sweetwater. Then, a fabric line. Oh my, I feel faint. I can't even begin to tell you how much I LOVE this fabric. This fabic has 'type' on it (much like their scrapbook paper which I own a TON of) Anyway, I grabbed a load of this at sample spree. So guess what? look for patterns coming in this one, too. :o)

Tired yet? Just a couple more!

Another scrapbooker's favorite- Eva by Basic Grey. Love It! One problem. I got a sneek peek at this fabric a couple of months ago and designed a beautiful pattern to go with it. Even had a name and everything. Just waiting to get to Sample Spree to get some fabric. I walked into Moda's booth and saw this quilt hanging and just about cried. Um, my pattern was so close to this -and in the same fabric- that there is no way I can market it. ARGH! I guess great minds think alike! Don't worry. I revisited the pattern and it, too, will be coming out soon. ;o)

Last one! (for now) This is a new line coming out from a new designer called French General. It is really pretty. Did I get any at Sample Spree? Absolutely not! I think this was the hottest item and off the table faster than you could think. That's ok. I think I have lots going on already, I should leave some for the other designers out there, right!?

BTW- Moda had a cute laundry theme going on. Laundry baskets, soap, and clothes lines all over. It was super cute!

Well, I don't know about you guys- but I'm exhausted. See you soon!

All of it looks simply amazing. I'm jealous. jk Your booth looked awesome. Are you passing on any of the goods?? Talk with you soon, Mary Ann and I had fun picking out the quilts for the shop hop.
