See us at our local quilt show!

We don't vend at many shows in Iowa and have never been to our "local" show in Mt. Pleasant, so for all of you who live somewhere near southeast Iowa, I sure hope you can come and visit.  Here are the details...

Saturday, March 30, 2019 - 9 to 5
Sunday, March 31, 2019 - 1 to 4

Located at...
Iowa Wesleyan University
601 N. Main
Mt. Pleasant, IA

The show includes vendors, boutique, door prizes, demos and lunch will be served.  Admission is $5

Our last show was in Dallas, Texas, and it was fun, as always.  My friends Jill & Vicki from Yellow Creek Quilt Designs came along and we caravanned (not a word!) our way to Texas.  It sure was nice to have someone to go with so I didn't have to be by myself for that long drive.  We went to Moda/United Notions before we left for home, which was also lots of fun and I came home with some good stuff! 

Here is a picture of our booth in Dallas (before we put the jewelry on the stands)

The theme of the show was animals, and they had some really cute balloon animals.  Aunt Nancy is posing with one...

Since I've been home, I've just been working on paperwork and trying to catch up on some things.  Of course, there is always lots of help from the kitties...

Party in the shower!

Ozzie is such a sleeping beauty

 This is Daisy's favorite toy in the whole world and it's broken!  Might have to take her to kitty therapy to deal with the devastation.

Here is a new pendant - I think I like this pattern (it's 1 1/4")!

And this is something new that we're working on...

That's all for now!  Hope to see lots of you at the quilt show!!

First show of 2019

I'm busy finishing up a few things and packing up the van because tomorrow we hit the road to Dallas, Texas.  This is my favorite show of the year because I get to stay with my cousin, Phillip, and his family.  You remember him...he was in charge of spray bottles last year...

My niece has always gone to this show with me, but she just started a new job and can't go this year.  Boo!  I'm really going to miss her.  Luckily my friends from Yellow Creek Quilt Designs are coming over tonight and we will drive to Dallas together tomorrow.  My aunt (you all know Aunt Nancy - also Phillip's mom!) is flying to Dallas today and she will be helping out as well.  I also have a great customer (Sandy), turned helper, turned friend, who will be there as well.  Hope you can come and see us!  I have some cool new items and also my new quilt design called Bundles of Stars...

Come and see us at Dallas Market Hall!  The show is Friday, Saturday and Sunday (March 8, 9, 10).  Here is a link to the show so you can see all of the vendors, times, etc.  You will find us in Booth 210-212.  Come visit!!
