Finally home.  Two weeks in Houston, then I drove home to Florida with Janice and spent another week.  I have put together some pictures of our booth from market and wanted to share.  Here are a couple of our booth.  It was hard to get the whole booth in one picture, so it took several.

 The booth was a lot of fun.  If you look close, you will see we created our own wall paper with our name.  Really fun.  We built a ladder system at the end so you could see quilts from both sides.  This feature got a lot of attention.

I mentioned ITTY BITTY fun and that is what we had.  We introduced the new ITTY BITTY BEATLE BAG, the little brother to the BEATLE BAG.  It is just over 7 inches wide and will hold all kinds of little things.

 We introduced two new quilts.  The first is BLUE JAY WAY.  I call it my zen moment.  We used Basic Grey Persimmon from Moda fabrics.  Just Beautiful.

 The second quilt is MONKEY BUSINESS.  Crazy, quirky and just plain cool.  Only 20 fat quarters and you have made this awesome quilt.  We used an assortment of Cotton and Steele fabrics for the sample.

One of the other big hits for market was our new apron.  The LADY GODIVA.  We had so much fun making it that we just kept picking new fabrics.  We wore different ones each day and great chef hats.  When asked what we were cooking, we said "TROUBLE."

Did I mention the apron has oversized hidden pockets tucked into the ruffles.  Maybe the best part.

Dina came along for all the fun.  We could never do it without her help.  She always had the best color combos when it came to the aprons also.

Another great thing about market is connected with old friends and making new.  These two ladies are from New Zealand and they have shopped with us for several years.  This year we got to meet them.

After market we broke down and moved the whole booth to a new location for FESTIVAL.  It was near the bathroom, always a hot spot.  We brought in Ariel, a cute little family friend and she helped us keep everything running smooth.
It was so much fun and so much work, but totally worth it.  All the new patterns are up on the website,  Next week we will be showing you all about the ITTY BITTY BEATLE BAG, and the rumor is there may be a really great giveaway.

Have a great week.

Marcea and Janice
