Well I finally go home today... Market and festival makes for a long trip to Texas! I miss my family terribly, and can not wait to get home and squeeze their necks and smooch their cheeks! So, heads up NYC marathon folks, best run fast, because I want to get home quickly, and not sit in traffic! Run run run!
Speaking of run run run... That's pretty much what I did all week. I spent quite a bit of time in Cherrywood Fabrics booth, demoing their luscious fabrics into TEENY TINY 15 Minutes of Play morsels...I have enough now to make another 12" quilt! If you haven't popped over to 15minutesplay.com recently, please do, and see all the Miniature Challenge pieces going on over there... Great fun!
The fabulous Ricky Tims and lovely Alex Anderson were near the both were I did book signings. Seeing them is always good fun... I need to check when my episode of The Quilt Show will run.

Open Studios, was a great experience! Being able to talk quilts is work right?, LOL! Not so hard. it's great to be able to share with others how I work, and hopefully inspire a few of you as I go... Meeting many FB friends and Bloggers was fantastic! Seeing friends I only see once a year in Houston, is always a blast as well.
