Home Again...

I'm home from Market and the craziness is over.  Of course there are now orders to fill, but that's nothing compared to what I have been doing.  I have the book projects all done and written, so now I only have to do the technical editing and work on the layout. And there is plenty of time for that. 
Market was a whirlwind as usual.  Lots of work in a short amount of time.  But very fun.  Here are a few pics.

The first picture I took was of Amy Butler.   In fact I had never used my new ipad to take a picture, so Amy gave me a personal ipad lesson so I could snap this shot in her booth.  Thanks, Amy!

 Here's a look at the Henry Glass booth across from my booth.  That's Larry sitting there ready to sell my fabric, which is on the quilt in the background.
 I didn't know that the camera was facing me.  This is quite a gadget.
 Dana's booth (Lazy Daisy) was across from me.  She has a new fabric line called Knock Knock, so she brought a door!  It was very cute, and she won a booth award!  Go HG designers!
 I made these large props of my glue and dots so shoppers didn't forget to check out the Jillily booth.

Eleanor Burns is always making history! 
 Kaffe Fasset's booth was so colorful, I had to take a picture.  I love red.  Isn't that quilt great?
 Down at the Aurifil booth there was a prize drawing for the booth hop they set up.  I was one of the booths in the hop, so I donated a few prizes.  The grand prize was this large suitcase full of all the colors of Aurifil thread.  Wouldn't that be great to have.  I would love to have it just to look at!
 Jacquelene and hubby of the The Nobel Wife had a booth near me because she is a HG designer, too. She had her new book there and new fabric, too!
I will post more pics in a few days, so stay tuned.

OH, and I need to remind you of the Henry Glass annual Blog Hop.  We are doing it earlier this year so you can have time to get your Christmas projects done.  So it starts Nov. 13, and there are designers posting every day for a week --with free projects and fun stories.  You won't want to miss this!  There are tons of prizes, including lots of fabric from Henry Glass.

 Remember how much fun we had last year???

What fun! I was rocking my iPad 2 with a bluetooth keyboard stand in quilting classes at festival last week. I work for Apple, so it's exciting to see other folks combining tech with their arts and crafts!
