HOME FROM MARKET

Janice just flew home from Houston after spending 10 days here. We worked those 20 hour days getting ready for the market. We had a great time. We met so many new friends and got to touch base with some old friends too. We debuted 10 new patterns. Eight quilts, a new purse, and of course the "ABBEY BAG." The Abbey Bag was a big hit and just as cute as can be. We had them all over our booth. A picture is worth a thousand words, so let me show you the show.


Here is the booth we started with. Not much.



















So much stuff, so little space. Janice's daughter Nellie flew in to help us with the show. We couldn't have done it without her help.


We had a 10' x 10' booth, which isn't very big. We started with the floor. It was fun to put together and added a great touch. We also put up some fru fru berries to soften the look.















Each wall represented a different look, but it all seemed to work.








We kept Nellie in
the corner
writing
orders. She liked

being there and we
would have
been
lost without her.






We had two quilts hanging in Patty Young's booth. Her fabric is beautiful and we loved working with it. Thanks Patty.

One of the highlights of the booth was winning SECOND PLACE for Single Booth decoration. This is a big deal and we were very honored.

So, the website has all the new patterns up and we are in business.
Have a great week and thanks for looking.
