Market pictures...a few anyway

These pictures are mostly just of my booth with some of my friends/sisters and I. I'm waiting on Chelsea for more pictures of other booths. I actually took tons of pictures, but SOMETHING HAPPENED to all of them, and they are lost on my camera!!! I can't find them anymore. It's as if someone snuck into my hotel room and deleted them all while I was sleeping. There is nothing on my memory card. So I have to rely on other people's photography skills, (which are going to be better than mine would have been anyway) to share any pictures with you. Here's a few:


This is me inside my booth on the first day. I was really tired.


This one is of me and two of my sisters: Kathy is the brunette, and Lucy is the blond.


This is just a close up of the paintings that were in the booth to kind of pick up on the fabric designs. I did the purple one, and Kathy did the pink one. She bailed me out big time. It's a good thing I'm not the only artist in my family!

This is me, showing a little PDA to Stella. She's my bud!





Here is Kathy, my sister, who volunteered to help me man my booth. She didn't know she would have to speak for me as well. She learned to read lips on this trip.



This is just another angle of my booth, showing the pattern display.




This is Kathy, Chelsea, Lucy, and I. Chelsea (Pink Fig Patterns) is married to Kathy's oldest son. That's the connection.



This is "the chair". I made a slipcover for it...it's an Ikea chair I picked up once I was in Pittsburg. I have one like it at home that served as my model. My daughter Natalie has now claimed it for her bedroom.


This is Stella and I with our booth award. (Second Day, I think.) Very happy!

Well, that's it for now. I'll have more tomorrow. It's past my bedtime, and my eyes are burning from the computer screen! Thanks for stopping by...

NIce blog! Very nice booth at quilt show... I had the same problem once with my memory card, photos disappeared. I actually found them using a card reader, they were hidden in a folder that appeared to be empty but I searched further and deeper and they were there. Good luck, your fabric is really lovely!

Love the shirts both the longer sleave and the short sleave. Are those a veriation of your peasant blouse or can we expect a new pattern?

Hello, I am also absolutely in love with your different shirts and I relly love your designs and colours! They are so bright and cheerful.

How did you made the chairs slipover? Is it very difficult to do? Would be a splendid idea for our sofa unless it would not be tooo difficult.

Love your fabric. The colors and prints are very fun and happy. Seven Children well you are inspiring. Amazing to have the responsibilities of a family that size and still be able to chase your artistic dream and creations. Keep it up. Your clothing pattern states your style. I like it!
