To Market....To Market

My copies of the We Love Color book arrived yesterday just in time for me to take a look before heading out to market.  My Think Big quilt is on the cover and there are some real gems inside!  I'll be doing a Schoolhouse on Thursday, May 17th with some of the other designers in the book.  Come and join us in Room 2203 at 2:35!
I'll also be doing a book signing for my book,  Quilting Modern:  Techniques and Projects for Improvisational Quilts, on Saturday morning at 10 a.m. in the Quilting Arts Booth #1136-38!  I hope to see you there!
Someone had his sad face on while I was packing.  A suitcase might mean he's being left behind and this time it's true.  Though, my hubby will be home, it won't be the same.  Bruno is a ladies' man.
Luckily for the big guy, I've hired a lady for him.  Yup, Bruno will have his own girl while I'm away.  He should have a smile on that face before you know it.  Her name is Julie and she's pretty fabulous.  Julie is Bruno's personal dog walker and new friend.  She and Bruno are going to get along just fine and I'll be happy knowing that he's happy!

For those of you heading to market I sure hope to see you there!  I'm chomping at the bit for a week filled with quilty conversation, new fabrics, and good business.

I'm outta here!

Sooooo wish I was going to market! What could be better than talking about quilting all day with others who also love it?! The rest of us will live vicariously through y'all-can't wait to hear about it!

The new book is being released on the 25th and should be arriving at my house about the 28th. I'm going broke with your publications, I'll have you know. lol

I was sad that they gave out tickets to your signing the day before. I was at the booth first thing in the morning on Saturday! It was great to meet you in person.
