Just a few days now till we leave for quilt market. Busy days. Everyone is saying how busy it seems this year, I wonder what's different about it? This is just my third market as a Trusty Sidekick, so I'm not sure, but yeah, even I'm busier. Of course it doesn't take much for me to be busier.
I've been making a lot of drives across town to drop off and pick up. Maybe Elizabeth will show some stuff soon. I've sewn a lot of bindings and taken a lot of pictures.
Saturday I went over for pictures of something, I don't even remember. I've been trying to photograph things in what I thought was my happy bright sunny room, but it turns out I live in a shadow filled dungeon. Very Dark Shadows it seems. I look at the screen filled with tiny postage stamp sized photos and its like shots of a log cabin quilt set in the Sunshine and Shadows setting. Half of each photo in the shadow. Just enough that you don't really see it with the naked eye, so subtle. At this point I'm sure my neighbors are guessing I'm shooting porn when they look out the kitchen window. I have paper across one part of the window, and about 4 lamps at varying heights and I'm holding a floor lamp without the shade up over my head with one hand and taking a picture with the other. Crazy.
Here are some scenes from Elizabeth's work table on Saturday. I see a vintage French button, vintage flowers, yo-yo's, tags, covered buttons. She's got some goodies up her sleeve let me tell you.
