WOW, What a day Thursday was. I'm in the middle of the learning curve. I was exhausted last night. After a great meal and 11 hours of sleep, I'm up and about ready to go again.
The morning was really fun, loads of people and lots of quilt talk. My sells are not great, but I'm new and a whole new way of looking at a quilt book. I've added to my speaking calendar and loved doing a presentation in the afternoon. The afternoon was very slow and I had time to ask many questions of the other vendor, they are great and very knowledgeable.
Husband has been a trooper and he's understanding the process of what I'm doing. I think this is all about building a base, as with everything in this journey, it will come......
As always, laughter, smiles and fun, I still can't believe I'm here. I've already won.
p.s. the ideas of flowing, I just keep writing them down, more and more to process.

The booth came with an 8 foot table and he was sure that he could get a 6 foot, "It will fit better." Well, he tried and even with his charm. He came back and said, "This one will work just fine, they wanted $150 to exchange table." We had to laugh.
The set up went really smooth and I'm so happy to have Husband with me.
Nothing but, FUN, Laugher and Smiles. I'm here ! !
The Quilt Ladies Book Collection
is officially on the Road.

I have been missing them recently and had to get out of the house this past Sunday.
We have this wonderful place here, called Trinity Heights, beautiful grounds, walking paths, and so peaceful.

My sewing room is nuts with everything piled every where for the quilt show, but after taking this picture and seeing it on the computer, I moved the flowers. Water and print..... Not a good idea.

I've been working on the "Little Quilt Ladies" it is a quilt pattern series and these are a couple of the little one's that will be included in the books. I've decide to start with the basic patterns and add the nutty ones as I go. I have been working with color and decided to just go with what I like.
Quilt size 9" x 9'

I've reworked all the copy and added the graphic to show the books. Hope to be able to have everyone who is at the show to go home with one?
Son #1 said, I'll run out of books before flyers...
Cross those fingers for that, I'm taking everything I have, let's do it.

I was to add to the blog on Friday a "Show and Tell", for a blog I follow, romantic home, (more about that in a future blog).
Anyway, I have been painting/cleaning the basement, what a mess. But, I came upon a box of old photos. Great, I’ll look through it, have lunch and have a great blog to drive traffic to my blog??? Don’t ask…..
It was my high school box, and look who I found. I’m the one with dark hair and my best girl friend, Glenna. This was the spring of 1976 prom, it seems like yesterday, and was so…….long ago. One photo can bring up so much emotion. Glenna and I still talk every couple of months and I miss her terrible sometimes.
So, here’s my show and tell, I’ll post something else next week to drive traffic, this one’s for me, for growing old, and becoming an old lady, with wonderful memories and fantastic friends.
