You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
The bags are packed. The boxes shipped. The patterns written. The plane tickets ready. Best of all I figured out how to blog and post photos from my ipad. wheww. I’m going to make every effort to blog at market. This is no small task because we are on the go…or completely exhausted by the time we hit the hotel room. I pinky swear I will try hard to be a good blogger. Who knows what I will come up with. I figure you will read all about who saw who and who visited who. I’ll try to put my own spin on market. I promise I will not hold back. I promise to show you things you might not see otherwise. I have challenged myself to bring you the inside edition of International Quilt Market. haha well this should be fun! 

Here is a sneaky peaky of some project bags BJ and I designed. They are 16″ x 16″, there are 3 appliqued bags and 3 pieced bags in two different patterns. Here We Go! and Here We Go Again! There are lots of options for sewing these adorable bags.  Sew much fun to make and the perfect gift for our quilting buddies!


Here is the bad news. I bought the cutest new shoes to wear in Salt Lake. I thought I would wear them out on Saturday night. BIG MISTAKE. Blisters. Great!!! lets start traveling with sore heals and bandaids. I like to keep things as complicated and uncomfortable as possible.

 I’m off to get a mani and pedi before I get on that plane. If I am going to have a body scan it is going to be with painted toes! 


Like I said I’m going to give you the ”  real”   side of getting to market.
