It’s been a run around like a headless chicken kind of day, as I get ready to head out to Houston in the morning for Quilt Market.
The last time I was AT Market was 2 years ago, just the tail end of Festival as we headed off on a Quiltville Caribbean Cruise.
The last time I VENDED at Quilt Market? Somewhere around 1993. I had my little doll pattern business under the name Needle in a Haystack and that is where I wound up being woo’d by Butterick and ended up with my designs in the BIG sewing catalogs.
I remember that Eleanor Burns was just up the aisle from me and I was just so star struck.
And now I’m going in a different capacity –and I get to meet other authors from the C&T team that I’ve never met before, and I’m feeling that star struck thing all over again.
Hair cut? Check! Eyebrows tamed? Check! Clothing shopping? UGH! I hate it, but I did find a few cute tops that are “non-wrinkle”. Pedi & Mani? CHECK! Now just watch me blow the mani as I sit here and type to get this done.
Packing? Nope. It’s waiting until after THIS goes live and then Ill be ready to roll. Oh, I have PILES all ready to go in the suitcase, it’s just up to logistics now. And again – don’t mess up the barely dry manicure!
I am laughing hysterically over this “Shift Happens” Gift-Away!
An Addicted to Scraps book with the spine somehow shifted to the cover, right there in plain sight. An Essential Triangle Tool package with a broken Bonus Buddy plus some other goodies…and you’d think this was the power ball lottery!
