As you read this it is the very last day of Quilt Market. The camera lens, for the most part, has remained covered as I’ve walked the aisles.
Teri Lucas and I carpooled to the Airport together in the wee hours this morning, flew different airlines, landed at different airports, took separate shuttles, and managed to arrived at the hotel at the same time. #houston #quiltmarket2017 #travel #travelbuddies #quilt #quilts #quilting #sew #sewing #patchwork #quiltingfriends
Debby and I arrived at our hotel within moments of each other. This after she arrived at my house just before 4 AM, whereupon my Sweetie took us to the airport dropping us off at our respective airlines. Arriving at the same time was a bonus.
We did manage to find lunch, and cupcakes.
Up until Friday I’d only spoken with Kay Brooks (the K of RNK) on the telephone. While Alex set up for her Schoolhouse presentation I helped with handing out samples of batting, and stabilizer, and a couple of pieces of paper. As other attendees asked about the booth number, someone you may know offered this information. That might be me. Once the Schoolhouse was over I helped pack things up, and introduced myself to Kay, sticking my hand out saying, “Hi! I know I seem a little like an overly eager helper, but I’m Teri Lucas, your new employee.” Yeah. I did that. Apparently she loved it.
I gave a quilt away.
A little back story. I knew way back when I made Shine Your Light that it wasn’t mine. There was one person that I thought it would go to, and brought it with me with the full intention of giving it to her. I started chatting with Alex Anderson in the media room when I realized it’s hers.
I’ll be strolling the Quilt Market floor this morning with Melissa. Then I’ll be here in Houston through Friday morning of Festival in the Pinwheels booth. Come by, get a hug and some Oakshott Cotton and Daiwabo.
Life is good.
