The Count Down

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.

I think we are all busier now because we spend a lot of "quality time" blogging, lol. I agree, there doesn't seem to be enough time to breath anymore. I lived in Houston before I moved to OKC and market is always fun. Have a wonderful time when you go.

Maybe you should leave a stilletto on the lawn to add to the allure of your secret photography sessions. Just for the neighbors fun, of course. :-)

Look at all those goodies! It really IS porn! And it's all so well fluffed too. ;o) Can't wait to see what Team LBPKM... PKMLB... Bloomin' Kitty... Late Morning... is coming up with for Market!

So funny... I was JUST thinking about Dark Shadows the other day. That's wild. Do you remember when Marine World was Marine Land... and it was just across the bay? We had gone on a day when Jonathan Frid happened to be there and it was a mob scene over the guy. Gawd... I'm so dating myself!
