Another down…

Well another show is off the books…I just kissed Nick goodbye and he is off to Atlanta…we had enough time to unpack, repack, wash the clothes and pack them, sleep a couple of hours and he is off for our next adventure.  I am looking forward to Atlanta because we have never been to this show before or with this new company…Original Sewing & Quilt Expo… But DesMoines was a lot of fun and it was so nice to see everyone and meet a lot of new people…we had a few highlights to our weekend…first, Jo Morton stopped in to say HI, and we had to photograph her in front of our newest quilt from her book…Sue H., who made this quilt, is a big “Jo” fan.  She will love this photo.  I met up with Lynn, Marilyn and Julie from a guild in Coucil ID, where I did a workshop awhile back…We also had a stow-a-way this show.  Carole’s husband Ray must have thought she would miss her rubber chicken so he packed it in her suit case for her…well it showed up in some pretty surprising places, but the best one was in our friend Stacy’s booth from Buttermilk Basin…it was hanging out awhile before someone told her about it…she didn’t even notice, but she was laughing so hard she was almost choking when it was pointed out…It is a lot of fun to hang out with the other “venders”…On Friday night…Debbie Fields and Delores from Granola Girl, Tara from Sew Unique Designs, Penny Haren, who writes books for Landauer and designs rulers and a bunch more things, Kitty from Landauer, Stacy and Jodi from Buttermilk Basin, Nick, Carole and I all went out to the Highlife Lounge…we had a blast and the food was great…ask Stacy about her “Pot roast” when you see her…or send her an email, she didn’t want to go to this establishment when we first told her about it….So all in all it was a lot of fun…I will post some quilts tomorrow…off to kickboxing class..


Stacy & me….
