I have some great surprises to share with you at Market. I have been asked to design and execute (now there's a word) the booth for Henry Glass Fabrics. I am so excited about this. It is getting close enough that I can share a bit about it.
We are doing a travel theme for the HG booth:
HENRY GLASS FABRICS
. . . .Your Fabric Destination!
Oh my, the things I have planned! First of all the booth has a whole new look, and we will have demos going on, and prizes and games, and all kinds of fun stuff. Free stuff, too.
I know that most of you are not shop owners, so you will not be there, but I will still share all the fun with you, and we will have prizes here, too, so you can join in the fun. Every day at Market I will post a few photos and we will give some stuff away.
If you are a shop owner, please DO come visit the Henry Glass folks in booth # 931. Just watch for the airplanes. . .
. . . more to come later about the Henry Glass Travel adventures!
In addition to doing the HG booth, my Jillily Studio booth is right across the way in booth #936! It is going to be awesome, too! We have some big plans. I just hope I can get this all done.
On top of this, I am still working on 3 more new projects and I have to write the patterns. Which, as you know is my least favorite thing to do. So of course, once again, I have put it off to the very last minute. I wonder if I will ever learn?
I have been sewing on some appliqué today, in between running errands and computer work. (There is always so much PRINTING that needs to be done before Market, and I tend to forget that.)
I have had this quilt running around in my head ever since I first designed the Poppy Patio fabric line. It's called California Dreamin' because of the sunny colors, and of course, the poppy--California's state flower. I got the center and one corner basted on today, (Yay, Appli-Glue) with a little bit of stitching. (Yay, Aurifil thread!) I need to finish this tomorrow. (doubtful) So it may just go to the quilter without the stitching done. (sounds familiar.)
This one, however, is already quilted and just needs to be bound. Now that is a record! I don't think I have ever had a new project ready for Market a whole 2 WEEKS ahead!
All of these new projects have used the strike-off fabrics--samples that I get before the fabric is printed. It has been a challenge to work with such small pieces and still get a quilt done. I have 6 new strike-off projects for Market this time. I can't wait to show them to the shops. I really hope they like them!
The Jillily booth plans are coming together. If you are at Market, please come see me!
