A Day Without Bacon Is...

...like a day without sunshine. Bacon, chocolate croissants, bran muffins, black tea and some quality time with a quilty friend. I'm not sure what's better than that. Working isn't interfering with having a great time!
Last night was the trunk show at Fabric Crush. It was an enthusiastic, supportive crowd. They came, I talked, we talked, and many of us indulged in our favorite activity, fabric shopping.
It was so great to connect with old friends, meet virtual friends and make new friends as well. Thanks for coming and making me feel so welcome! Thanks to Sarah of Fabric Crush and my friend Katie for inviting me. It was almost better than bacon.

Gotta love bacon, but oh how nice it would have been to be at your trunk show!! You know you could have had bacon appetizer there and it would have been just perfect! LOL

Never mind the bacon, I'm sure the quilts you brought were all a feast for the eyes and inspiriation 'bugs' in everyone who was there - I'd love to have been one of them

I'm so jealous! I wanted to go so bad! I'm not even that far away, but it just didn't work out. :(

Looks like you had a great time! Speaking of bacon, have you ever had it with brown sugar? Sounds strange, tastes like heaven. Pig Candy.

Meg said...

It was great to meet you! Your quilts were very lovely and very inspiring. I'm just learning how to quilt and I love the modern style! I'm happy to see it in more designs. Plus, I tend to have quilt lines like you described...the "organic ones" I love that term and will be using it!

Monica said...

You are my kinda girl! So sorry I missed your Seattle appearance!
