Let Festival begin!

I received this picture for Boo this morning! She made her costume last night out of an old umbrella!
;-)  Pretty darn cool kiddo!

Finally got a picture of Lisa Sipes and I together with out Quilt, "Double Edged Love"! 
We jumped the ropes for a shot. ;-)

Last night, Was opening preview, and I was hanging in the Aurifil booth waiting all the people to start filling in... Pat Sloan was getting her game ready... ;-) Yes, we have mini golf in the booth..a hole in one for Aurifil thread!

 Then I hear, "Hi Ladies!!!" ...And there was Marie Bostwick,  It's funny when we all have to show up at Market or Festival to be able to see each other... Her Books here.
This is the market floor just before opening... it looks so nice and quiet right?  I should get a picture later when it's "full on commerce"... PACKED with people...  with all the Halloween costumes today!
Yes, the quilters really get into Halloween here... Yesterday, Kaffe, Liza Lucy and Brandon, were walking around with big Halloween decor, spiders on their heads...  Yep. everyone gets into the act!

Just a good shot for the DWR challenge at the Simplicity booth from Market...a good reminder! Hope you are working on your DWR!

challenge rules here!

  8. Boo's costume gets big points in my book and I am putting that idea in my Halloween notebook or should it go in the book of what to do with broken umbrellas?
