Here come the excuses. There's a bunch of pictures to follow, but of course when I'm looking I see many many pictures missing. Because I forgot to take them in the excitement. Like OMG I have no photo of Monica, even though I saw her several times, but not enough times. For sure. What about Polly and Laurie? I'm a super huge fan and I did get to see them, a couple of times. Evidence of said meeting? Non-existent. (Have you seen their new book? Dying over it. )Same goes for Barb and Mary, and Bari! Ok, at least with Bari I have her booth. Sweet sweet Ever Kelly, saw her. Even got to chat. Pictures, not so much. Nireko? I totally love her and chatted with her for ages. She's moving away and I'm so sad she won't be near in miles but of course always as close as my computer. What there is, tons of pictures with me in them on other people's cameras! YIKES. I'm usually behind the camera, not in front of it.
So you can see, for all the pictures that follow there are twice as many friends who aren't here. (Jona in her cute skirt, John, holy cow he's looking good, KATHY BROWN!!! Where is Kathy Brown? Roseann? Mary? Vicki? Little Lady Patchwork, Kerri?)(I know I'm leaving out tons of sweet people and I HAVE NO EXCUSES.)( Holy crap, what about Sharon???? I don't have pictures of Sharon??)
Here's what I have in no particular order:
Lori Holt's Booth
Busy Bee Quilt Designs.. love this little area. Sad to not meet them.
Joanna's Booth (cute cherries right?)
Bari J. Love that wonderful pot of flowers. No good photo though.
The ever Lovely Sarah Fielke
Johanna from StitchCraft who was able to tell me she'll be in the next Quilt Sampler! Congratulations!
And that I'm sure is not even close to all the people who I met and hugged and chatted with. If you're not listed here it's because I'm lame! Forgive me. The people are the best part of quilt market.
