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!
It’s a RECORD! FOUR THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED AND THIRTY SIX entries for this crazy bundle:
This has been so much fun it is ridiculous!
Are you ready, #1416??
BETH KONZ!! Whoooowhooo!!!
Beth, I’ve emailed you at the email address you left with your entry. Please get back to me with your snail mail address and this will be put in the mail to you upon my return from Quilt Market! I get home on Monday night, so Tuesday – off it goes.
And now on to the rest of my evening. And the Pumpkin Table Runner? Nope. Didn’t get to it. Too many other irons in the fire ---It too will wait until I’m back from Houston.
Have a great Wednesday Eve, everyone!
