Whew... what a day! Lots going on and still a lot more ahead. This morning I left for Houston Quilt Market and had to say goodbye to my kiddos and hubby for the weekend. I was a little sad because Paige and Matthew started to have cold symptoms this morning. It's never good when your kiddos aren't feeling very well. Richie (hubby) has been really great... he is taking care of everything while I am gone to Houston so I don't have to worry too much.
Arrived in Houston around 1ish and headed off to the convention center to help with setup. Quilt Market does not officially start until tomorrow, however tonight we had Sample Spree and I was able to attend Fabric 2.0 to meet a bunch of great people in the Industry and fellow Bloggers! A few new bloggers (to me that is) that you will definitely need to check out... Take A Bow, Bloom Design Co, Flourishes / Confessions of a Craft Addict, Stop Starring and Start Sewing, Fabric Hound, Maluhia Designs, Hip Fabric, Quiltmaker, and BHG American Patchwork and Quilting.
jcaroline creative is on the far right...
And of course... the fabulous Fig Tree Quilts, Joanna and her husband.
Then... off to Sample Spree... Sample Spree is an amazing sight to see. Tons of retailers out to purchase the latest samples and fabrics that they can get their hands on before they receive the actual sell-able goods for their stores. This allows the Store Owners to be able make their store samples ahead of time so when the actual fabric arrives at the store, you will be able to see a finished project made with a particular collection. Check out all the people around the Moda Sample tables! WOW!
Me and My Sister Froggy made from their newest collection... Oh-Cherry-Oh! This frog is so cute...
A very pretty teal shell bracelet from Things Past & Present... will be wearing this tomorrow for the first day of market.
A cute little purse for my 3 year old daughter, Paige... She loves all things Pink and shiny! What girl doesn't... right?
And my favorite of all... this adorable little vintage childs bracelet... which will be a Christmas present for Paige. SOOOO CUTE!!!!!
