This is a very hectic time of year for us.  MARKET.  This year we thought we would add to the fun by going to FESTIVAL also.  Hope you all come find us there.  Anyway, Janice and I are always joking and telling our families that no one is allowed to get married, have a baby, or pass away during May or October.  The families listened for a while, but somehow they forgot this time around.  My son had baby number 2, two weeks ago.

Meet Josephine, and this is her big sister, Genevieve.

Sadly, Janice's mother passed away earlier this week.  Genille Elliot was a wonderful woman that I was priveleged to know.  She was a huge inspiration to Janice, especially in the quilting world.  The services were yesterday, and it was a wonderful day that I am sure Janice's Mother would have appreciated.

Our good news, we sent our new book to the printers.  We hope to have it back at the end of the week, and yes, we will have it for market and festival.

I gave you a sneak peak of the two halloween quilts, here are their finished pics,

And here is the cover.  That's all the peaks at that project.  Have to wait for market.  We have four more quilts we are working on, the book had 9 quilts, and just finished a GREAT NEW BAG.

Hope ya'll have a good week, and see you in Houston.

It's October, that means MARKET TIME!

Cannot believe that 7 weeks have passed since our last posting.  Janice and I have been busy.  I have had two new grandbabies born during that time.  Janice went to Pennsylvania twice, Missouri once, had a birthday.  I have been to Houston and Philadelphia.  We have been working overtime the last couple of weeks, only three more crazy weeks to go before market.  Here is a sneak peak of our NEW BOOK.  We will have it ready to go for market.  Oh, and by the way, WE ARE STAYING FOR FESTIVAL.  We have never done that before, so it should be a lot of fun and a lot of work.

The book will have 9 diffferent quilts.  They cover all four seasons and a bonus, but since it is October, here are a couple of pics of one of the Halloween ones. 
This is just a teaser.  Taking all the final shots tomorrow, so I will post a couple more.  Just wait till you see the Christmas quilts.
