one down, three more to go…

nick and rudy

Good Morning! This is your favorite midwest quilting insomniac live from CA!  I have no trouble getting my time in on the treadmill here.  I am still on CST zone and I am an early riser to begin with…Nick seems to have no trouble adjusting to time here.  Here are some photos of the booth opening day…Nick shown here with his favorite quilt/kit in the booth…is all smiles before the show opening.  There are a lot of new “things” in the booth that are not on the site yet…we will get them on when we get home…so don’t worry if you see something you like…one of the things that is going well is Addies Tumbler Quilt.  It is a pre-cut quilt kit…it is hanging in the center of the the booth…it has 80 fabrics both mediums/darks with 1120 pre-cut tumblers, packed in those brown boxes by the quilt.     The last photos is a “sweetheart” that came into the booth and announced that we have the best wools to work with.  She brought her quilt that she used our pumpkin wools on for show and tell.  I am sorry I did not get her name as the booth was packed most of the day.  I got to sit down at about 5pm for a few minutes…Well today I will try and get some my favorite quilts in the show.  There are many police officers in the lobby right now…so i feel really with all there guns and belts with all of there gear…i asked if something was going on…and they said no…there are just here to protect us as added security for the show…wow… I wonder if they can do anything about the gas bombs that are sometimes left in our booth!…no..really we only had one yesterday.  It is a hazard of the job…well got to run…shower time…maybe i can get a little sewing time in yet this morning…

I am looking at your blogg from timne to time, and yesterday I realisied that you are the same Lisa that also designed the Primitive Garden that I am stitching – beatufull. And when I sat dawn yesterday and picked up a coincidental quilt magazine it was one from 2006 with a presentation of your quiltshop. Fun, heh?
