Getting Ready for Market!

In 3 weeks time, we will be heading for the Airport to catch a plane for Houston. I'm excited and nervous at the same time.  This will be my first Houston Quilt Market and topping that I will have a small booth to display my Quilts and Patterns, thanks to  I have a list of things that has to be done but I think it keeps getting longer. I do feel like things are falling into place now.  Last week, I was busy finishing the last Quilt Sample and ordering paper supplies to print catalogs, forms and patterns.

Some of the supplies, like the Business Cards have arrived, just waiting on some more stuff to come.  Trying to save money, this is not going to be cheap trip.

So over the weekend, I embroidering 6 polo shirts with our Company name.  The weekend before, we went to JcPenneys and found 3 polos in the Men's department for $7.00 and 3 in the Woman's Department that were $9.99.  I think they came pretty good for my first time. 

This week, is another week, putting the binding on the Sample I just finished today. And working on the new pattern for the Seams to be Sewing Halloween Blog hop for October. 

Well better go for now and get things done.

Vacation Over!

For the last week, I have been in a remote location in Minnesota on Vacation.  This was a well needed Girls time.  My girl friends are here with me.  Jean who live here in  beautiful Northern Minnesota and Lynn who lives in Maryland with me.  Lynn and I flew into Minneapolis on Labor Day.  Jean picked us up from the Airport and we started our couple hour trek north.  

We have been having fun and relaxing time.  Hitting a few casinos.  I got lucky one night and won on one of slots on the second spin.  Yeah, me! Shopping, with Jean is a great adventure.  She has a nice since of style, just wish we had more time to do more shopping.  Love shopping in Minnesota, no sales tax on clothing. Learning how to shoot a couple rifles correctly.  Jean husband, took me out back of there house and we did some target.  I didn't do bad once,  I got the hang of it.  It was actually fun to do some target practice.  Thanks Jim!

On our downtime, while the kids are doing their homeschooling homework, I do some work designing,  and paperwork catch up from the weeks I was so busy getting my patterns submitted.  Work is also most caught up, thank goodness.

The weather has been great, in the 60's and 70's, with cool nights.  So nice to sleep with the windows open.  Tuesday, we took a nice long walk around Lake Superior, in Duluth.  It was such a beautiful day for a nice walk.  Ships coming into port was fun to watch. 

I so hate to leave this beautiful place and friendship, but must get ready for for market. Jean thank you for all you do for us while we were here.  Love you so much my friend and sister!
