After flying 2500 miles to Florida, then driving nearly 2,000 miles to Minnesota, then driving back to Florida and then flying back to Utah, I am finally home.  What a crazy couple of weeks.  We had a great time in Minneapolis, though.  Now to the NEWS.  Two brand new quilt patterns were debuted,  ACROSS THE UNIVERSE, and PENNY LANE (pictures coming soon), and the most EXCITING NEWS of all.  We published our first book - BLOOMING POSSIBILITIES.  (so many fun projects we have to devote a whole post for it.)

We wanted to share with you this week, pictures of our booth.

We had a bigger booth this year.

And we used every bit of the space.

Two walls were devoted to the new quilts.  Penny Lane is the third one over on this wall.

Across the Universe is the far quilt on the right.

We devoted a whole wall the the projects from Blooming Possibilities.

We had cookies and flowers to celebrate the book.

The last bit of news came on Saturday.  Janice and I were busy helping customers, when a lovely lady interupted us "for only one reason."  WE HAD WON THE BOOTH AWARD FOR....

All in all, Spring Market was a fabulous success.  We got to catch up with old friends, and make new friends, too.  We will be posting pics of some of our favorite booths in the next couple of weeks, and look for a BOOK GIVEAWAY, coming soon.

Hope you are having a wonderful holiday.  Wishing you a great week.

We would like to wish a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all the mothers, grandmothers, mother's to be, foster mothers, want-to-be mothers, and all of us who lovingly mother those around us.

May is also the Wonderful month of SPRING MARKET.  We are officially going crazy.  I head to Florida on Wednesday, and on the following Monday, we get in the car and DRIVE to Minneapolis.  We use the time during the drive to finish hand sewing on quilts, stuff patterns, shoot cover shots after we finish sewing, make brochures and pretty much every other little thing we did not get done in time.

I have spent four days this week shooting pictures for new patterns and our BIG SURPRISE.  It is soooo big, that we aren't even showing peaks yet.  But, I am showing you a new pattern.  The four days I shot this week showed the crazyiness, I mean, Wonderful month for weather.  The first day it snowed, the second day it was 75 degrees, the third day, sunshine with snow falling everywhere, day four 68 degrees.

My very helpful husband went along with me for a couple of the photo shoots.

He found a really nice spot to hang the quilt.
He did find this beautiful spot.

Here is the final shot.

The quilt is call JUST LET IT BE.

I did have to throw in a picture of my favorite things, flowers.  Here was my flower on this location.

Hope you Wonderful month of May is just that.  We will keep you updated on our Market preparation.
