Whew! It was a whirlwind, but soooo fun! International Quilt Market in Houston is officially over, but you wouldn't know it if you looked in my house right now. There are boxes and papers, samples and patterns, fabric scraps and trims and way more mess than before I left, I think! My husband is very patient, but this is totally taking over our living quarters.
I really need a warehouse, and a staff of people to help me organize myself.
(NOT my forte')
Anyway...I have just a few pictures for today. The rest will have to wait till Monday. These are all from my booth, and I'm sorry there isn't one of the whole thing from a distance. They are all snippets from different angles, so it's hard to get an idea of the booth as a whole. But no matter...it's a start:)
This above, is Michelle in the long skirt, who is my neighbor and friend, who came to save my life in multiple ways! she was the hardest worker, the happiest helper and the first to fall asleep at night.
THANKS A TON MICHELLE!!
In the foreground is Jessica, who is a long time friend who came from Massachusetts to help me with my booth, and to bring her art designs to look for a position designing. She did both, and will soon be working for Andover Fabrics as a fabric designer!! I'm soooo proud of her! She has tons of talent, and she deserves to have her work recognized in a big way!
Congrats Jess!!! (And thanks for all your help!)
This above, is a little fabric necklace and belt I made and featured in my schoolhouse the day before market opened. It was fun...and I think everyone liked their ceramic necklace gifts!
So that's it for now!
There was sooo much to see, so many fabulous booths, so much beautiful fabric, so many wonderful new patterns, and all the fun, bright, happy faces shining with excitement!
I just love reuniting with all of my quilt market friends...we always have so much fun!
I can't wait to show you the video that Jessica took for me, which she is busy editing as we speak, I'm sure! Right Jess??? (Snore)
I know it's way harder than I can imagine...and I know she's really tired from her trip. but I'm so impatient!
It should be fun to watch.
Have a great weekend!!
