Another question that came up was Who's Frankie? Frankie is my ever so delightful now 20 year old daughter! Here's a recent shot of us Myspace style on an outing in Alameda at the antiques fair. She's off at her third year in college so we miss her tons!
And here's a sneak peak of what's to come! I love this cute apple corduroy. I can't wait to cut into it. It's up next after I get the cupcakes ready to mail off!

You can read more about Robin and Paris Bebe fabrics over on The Fat Quarter Shop Blog. I've purposely opened my bundle so now there's NO EXCUSE for not getting in there and using them! I have that tendency to hoard things that are pretty, I mean I might not be able to get them again. But I'm working on kicking the habit, starting with this pile! Thanks Robin!

They're from an American Jane pattern by Sandy Klop. Oh jeez, I just went and looked at her site, and she has some amazing patterns there, along with the Sowing Seeds quilt Sherry's making. Why didn't I see these quilts at market? Did I just walk by waving on input overload? Check out this pattern!!! It comes in a kit!!! Wow. Just wow.
So have a happy weekend my peoples. Next week we'll all be talking turkey.

Yeah, right till it ground to a halt UNDER MY CAR. Yup, totally crammed. We obviously pulled over and could not pry it out. Luckily the hero of the day Eric, Elizabeth's oldest son, came and pulled it out for us. And not without considerable trouble. There's some damage, so we switched cars and took Bret's over to Niles. Having that 'extra' car now is really paying off. Even ugly hunks of metal can't stop us, we're a force to be reckoned with.
Ok, peeps, I'm off to Michael's today to see that amazing Martha Stewart stuff I've been reading about. Frankie and I are planning a craft fest and I need supplies. Have a wonderful day!!

I did find a few fun things at Market!!! I got the wonderful charm packs from Holly at sample spree. I also picked up the pack from Lecien, that fabric is wonderful and I can't wait to use it. They are from the Antique Flower in Pastel line.
I also found some really nice trim at Dusty's Vintage, I hope to do some crochet with that. Tamara did some nice crochet with rick rack that I'm dying over. I keep looking at the photos I took hoping I can copy it, somehow. Which makes me wish I lived near her, the Cro-Genius!
One thing I love that I picked up is my Dovo scissors. Nice scissors are a luxury that I've been treating myself to the last couple of years. I received a pair as a gift and since then I've been hooked. This is their 100 year anniversary, and I'm loving the little anniversary tag. Kind of goes with the cute Mary Engelbreit pot holder I got from the Moda girls across the hall. And in the back is the little floss needle threader from Clover that Cyndi scored for me. She is so sweet!. It was a really great trip and I had a lot of fun seeing old friends and meeting new ones. I can't thank Elizabeth for taking me with her and letting me be her Trusty Sidekick!
On a closing note, I received a fun little gift from Gina of Quilter's Buzz. Check out my I Love http://www.quiltersbuzz.com/ t-shirt!
Gina had just a very few t-shirts to share and I made the list!!! The LIST people. Yeah me, I made it! Gina has taken it to the NEXT LEVEL and suggests that I do the same. Ok Gina, I'm working on it! I'm not sure what the NEXT LEVEL is but I am interested in finding out!!!
So that's the end of the market stuff, next stop, regular everyday Pamkittyness. I've been busy and I'm going to get busy. Taking it to the next level, whatever that is.
This is the quilt Elizabeth made, and the little bag I made.
I love the little figurine of the two sweet sisters.
All righty my friends. Next time my market loot and a little market follow up and then you're free of market. But for now I'm headed back to Alex's to finish up some work there. Have a lovely weekend dearies!

I'm not drinking the kool-aid for myself, but I am going to do a little folding and organizing over there.

The Tammy Tadd Designs booth is always pretty and pink. And cheerful.
Here's Tammy's bestseller of the show, Patch Me if You Can. It's a darling bag made with charm squares or fat quarters.
Tammy took us to a lovely dinner Saturday night. I had so much fun. You can see the photos over on Elizabeth's blog. That was the day I forgot my camera battery. I can't thank Tammy enough for the friendship she's extended to me!
Thanks to everyone who commented about the bag patterns Elizabeth blogged about! I had fun making them! The shop has the patterns or you can order directly from Elizabeth. I appreciate the support and encouragement!

We have other friends in that magazine this month as well, Cyndi and Jeree! Anyway, Gerri's booth won 1st Place Double Booth!!! I mean you can see why, it's super cute.
Nah, no they didn't, just kidding. But that is what she told me when we were getting on the bus and she and Jean were carrying furniture. She said it in that way that's TOTALLY HILARIOUS and I TOTALLY KNEW SHE WAS KIDDING, but I think some of the ladies on the bus were giving her the 'gimlet eye' as my mother would say. Here they are reenacting the crime. I LOVE THEM.
