(Yep, I just started a post with OMG… Oy.)

I leave for Quilt Market tomorrow. I am so insanely excited. There are so many people I am looking forward to meeting, and so much that I want to see. With a bit of research, and a couple of suggestions from Lizzy House, I am armed with a list of vegetarian-friendly restaurants that should be able to handle my unique HKPP diet. So, I may even be able to eat in SLC without carrying around a bag full of sodium-free sandwiches. Hooray!!!

I convinced myself that I only need two pairs of shoes and don’t actually need to pack three outfits for each day I am there, just in case. I think I shall even be leaving enough room in my suitcase for all the fabric love to be picked up at Sample Spree.


Oh, and see what Bee is doing? She is showing off her drawing to her Pink Panther friend (she likes to share things with people on the TV). That will probably be me this weekend with Pear Tree this weekend. Yep, excited, that’s what I am. Though now I am nervous as well; the world is going to get it’s first look at Pear Tree, on paper at least. Of course I am totally excited about that, but a little terrified as well. Eeeek!!! So, if you are coming to Market, don’t forget to stop by Andover’s booth — it’s #800-805 — and check out Pear Tree. I’d love to hear what you think.

Oh, and have you heard about the Quilt Market Scavenger Hunt? You don’t have to be there to play; so it’ll hopefully be a bit like a virtual trip to Market for those who couldn’t make it. Oh, and prizes, can’t forget the prizes.

Well, off to do some last minute quilting and then start packing. OMG!!!

(Yep, I did it again.)

    Have a wonderful time! Don’t let your head get too big from all the compliments you’re going to receive about your designs!
    Be careful at the Sample Spree! I would love to get a look at Jo Morton’s new line. Lucky you!

    Have a wonderful trip Thomas! Before I forget I want to share a link with you to show you what another quilter/blogger did with her gazillion 2.5″ squares. 🙂


    Your beautiful photo reminds me of my husband and daughter. They have an awesome relationship, always have, and she’s 21 now. 🙂 Anyway, she was majorly in love with her daddy and missed him a lot when he traveled for work. When she was about 3.5 yo he had to go away for 10 days. I will never forget him, dead tired at midnight with a six a.m. flight the next day, creating some unique “listen to this story being read aloud, turn the page when you hear the bell” cassette tapes for her. They were a huge hit. I know you’re already on your trip but thought you might like the idea for another time.

    Happy to have helped your scrap stash grow. I look forward to seeing your project in process and then when it’s completed. Oh, and that painting your daughter did – wow!
