I have been starting to realize that I better hurry up if I want to be ready for Market and Festival!! Why is it that it always just sneaks up on me? In the summer it seems so far away. . . .
Time to finish up a few projects so I can get some patterns written. (As you know, my favorite part.)
I am still stitching on this one, because I ran out of fabric, set it aside, and now I found more and I'm finally back to it. I want to get this one finished and written before Festival.
I also have to admit that I did a really stupid thing. (Not the first time.) I went to Spring Market in May to present my new fabric (Bicycles and Blooms) for release to sales.
I did a Schoolhouse presentation on it, and made all these beautiful quilts--using paper (since I didn't have fabric yet). It was a great way to show off the collection and they were a LOT of work.
|Dana Brooks and I shared a Schoolhouse session--we rocked it!|
Then I just left them there, and I guess they were thrown away.
I didn't think I would need them again.
But here comes Market again, and I won't have any fabric until December. So I really should have saved those paper quilts! Now I have nothing to display in my booth. I have a few small strike-offs of the prints that I can make into small projects, but nothing that will really display the fabric. WHAT WAS I THINKING????
not. I guess.
So. I will have to dream up something. There was a really cute basket quilt and a table runner and a large lap quilt. sigh.
If you see any Bicycles and Blooms paper quilts hanging around, let me know.
