Here's the haul from the trip. This is all my stuff from Anna Lena's. Isn't it yummy? I'm on a pink and red thing lately. I also got that tiny wedge ruler, thinking of Amy. I wonder if you could actually make tiny little blocks with it. That's what I was thinking. Or maybe it was all the coffee and fudge thinking for me.
I also got Karen's new book! Autographed of course. You can see she says I'm always welcome at the troll house. I might have to test that out.
This is the latest book by Amy Barickman, of Indygo Junction and Vintage Workshop fame. I picked this up at sample spree along with a bracelet kit. Just need to score some of that amazing glue now.
I can't bare to take it out of the plastic. Its so cheery. Elizabeth and I are thinking we might do something fun with this. Of course again, the fudge could have been talking.
This is the bag of Cottage Romance. I really love this line. Maybe it was this we were thinking about. We thought about so many things, we should have kept better notes.
Here's a super fun gift from Tammy Tadd. Tammy is one of the sweetest most generous people around. I'm rocking the kitty purse Tammy!!! And making a note about it in the Kitty Date Book!
Here's my signed copy of Darlene's new book. I love Darlene's work and am always excited to see her at quilt market.
This is a great new book by friends of Monica and Karen. They went to a retreat in Montana at their shop.
It's like a topsy turvy doll, you flip it over and its a whole new book. Really cute projects, and super for shops for kitting up quilt projects. There is the cutest table runner in there, it looks like Hostess Cupcakes.
And of course no quilt market is complete without purchasing a pair of Dovo scissors. I have a ton of them, and they're all great. This pair will replace the ones that I've been using two years. I've been careless with them and they have plunged to the floor too many times. They're so sharp and pointy they stick right into the hardwood, and consequently they have a burr. Last year's pair is an anniversary edition.. so I'm 'saving' them. I know its a sickness.
I can't tell you how many wonderful cupcake things we saw. This cupcake by Cindy Taylor Oates is so cute you could eat it. Her book is adorable and again perfect for kits or make and takes or fun girls day out projects.
Market was great fun. I can't thank Elizabeth enough for continuing to include me in!!!! It was super seeing old friends, making new friends and having a fun time!
