HOME AT LAST...


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....
 BEST MERCHANDISING. 





















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.
Janice and Marcea

Glad you made it home safe. Your booth was terrific and this coming from someone who was there. You two are so awesome, and congrats on your booth. I'm working on a Glad all over quilt for the shop. I'll send pictures when it's done. I just set you a picture I took at market. It was fun sseeing you again. Can't wait for my book, make sure you autograph it.

P.S. Yvonne is my blogging friend from the Netherlands. She will be here in July and I can't wait to meet her. I'll make sure she gets a book too.

Hi,
Your booth is fantastic, and I am looking forward to your book. I would love to write an article about your booth in my blog. Is it possible to use some of your booth photos? I have a blog called The English Country garden in bags. You can check it out when you can. I am a follower to your blog as well.
