home again home again.....

I am back home and only slightly worn out from Market in Houston! Actually I got back last Tuesday evening, but with Halloween and kids I had to be Mommy the rest of the week.
As promised, I do have some photos to share. These are photos of my booth.



Here is a photo of Annie Smith with my dear friend Janet Platt at her booth. Janet invented the Quick Points Ruler for making Prairie Points fast you can check it out at her website here:
http://quickpointsruler.com/ Annie Smith is the famous Podcaster for quilters and makes all of us "unknowns" famous in the quilting world. I had the pleasure to meet her and have a quick chat at Market. By the way, she is also a very talented quilter and pattern designer! You can check out her website here: http://www.simplearts.com/blogs/index.php
Here I am with Lani from the online quilt store 'The Quilt Shoppe'. She is darling and really has a handle on how the quilting world is turning more and more toward the internet. Her online only shop can be accessed through this link: http://www.thequiltshoppe.net/ Check it out! They have some really wonderful items!

If we look a little glazed over it is because this was the final day of Market and we were exhausted!
Finally, here I am at dinner with my dear friend Sandi (far left of the photo); who is also my personal pattern editor and tester, and our friends Marlous, and Judy at Josephine's restaurant. Next to Marlous is me, then Judy, and Lori Kabat and Linda her assistant of Lily Anna Stitches. Lori is a designer of darling wool needlings. Marlous is a very talented quilt pattern designer and her site is http://marlousdesigns.com/ . Josephines has possibly the best Italian food I have ever had, and it is a wonderful restaurant in the heart of downtown Houston-Who Knew??? !

We just all had too much fun! Market is amazing. You get to meet wonderful quilter's who share your passion and make new quilty friends. I am a lucky and blessed gal! Thanks to all who shared it with me and stopped by the booth to meet me! Until next time....
