Back from the show

Another year, another quilt show done.

We are back and I am Ex. Haus. Ted.

Lots of trips back and forth to Augusta.

Lots of lugging things around.

Lots of schmoozing.

Lots of selling.

Lots of meeting up with people I only see once a year.

(You know who you are!!!)

And for all my complaining and exhaustedness, I have to admit that I kind of enjoy doing it.

But Mom and I are by no means what you would call "show people."

The booth looked like this:

There you can see my La La Log Cabin quilt in the background.

Yes,... I finished (with a LOT of help) my La La Log Cabin.

The free patterns are finished as well.

Those of you who placed orders over the weekend (and from now on) will have a free La La Log Cabin "pattern-ish type thing" included as a free gift with your order.

Here's a close-up of the quilt where you can see Barbara's lovely machine-quilting:

So, now that I have shown you what the booth looked like...

Here is what the shop looks like today:

I don't know what it is about a messy shop that makes people want to visit us but I am going to remember that this is a good trick on slow days.

If you are one of the people who visited us over the weekend or today I am so, so sorry.

And now I believe you are all caught up with the Quilt Show.

In other news I find the new Iphone commercials really, really annoying.

Also I am the proud owner of a brand new really kick-ass eyelash curler and mascara.

I have the next two days off (thank goodness) and will probably spend them chillin' like a villain.

See you again soon!

The booth, your La La Log Cabin quilt, and all the great fabrics were fab, fab, fab. And you were super-fab! I can't believe you remembered that I was working on a Turning Twenty with Daisy Chain. Crazy memory girlfriend. I read the new pattern over lunch and I can't wait to try something out! But, first I must finish that Turning Twenty!

I loved your booth, you had just what I wanted and the free non-patterns are lovely...I see a LaLa in my future.

I can't wait to do a mid-coast personal shop hop and check out your shop later this year.
