Market Mayhem!


Hey there!  I really wanted to post the last 2 days but let me tell you it's been BUSY!

On Wednesday Shannon and I took a trip to the coast. The Gulf Cost, that is.

I grew up in CA so the Pacific and I are good friends. But I couldn't miss the opportunity to dip my toes in another body of water. The sand here is SO soft. And the water is cozy cool. People ask if it's warm. Well, it's not like a bath. But it you've ever felt the north California Pacific (very COLD!) this was warm in comparison.

Yesterday we started booth set up. It was a long, hot, sticky day. I got most everything in place but had to wait to hang the quilts until today after my Schoolhouse presentation.
The presentation went ok. I always feel like a dork. But my friends said I did ok. Afterwards we went back down to finish booth set up. This is what we ended up with:

I'm pleased. It looks super crowded in this picture but doesn't have that feel in person. I think it's all in the details so there's lots of fun sports equipment scattered about. And of course, QUILTS!

See that yellow jersey in the middle? It belonged to my hubs when he was a teen. It's a pretty gross jersey and he was shocked when I told him I was bringing it. But hey, it works PERFECTLY in the booth.

The show starts tomorrow. That's when things get really crazy. :o)

Where on earth do you get a set of lockers for display and have them in TX when you are from out of state? I like some of those quilts I see. I am ready to dabble in circles and have been thinking for months on them. When I finish what I'm working on, they will be next. Looks fun.
