Market continues

If you were tuning in to see progress on the Civil War quilt-a-long with Karen, you are gonna have to wait until next Sunday. Karen is in the middle of a major remodel of her nest and can't even find her sewing machine.   But...she promises she will have 2 for next week and I'm holding her to that promise. I think she plans to show pictures today of the remodel so I know we're in for a treat.  

I'll just keep plugging through all the pictures I took (which aren't all that good, for some reason).   Oh well, you can get the idea.

It's always fun to see Kathy Cardiff and JoAnn Mullaly.    JoAnn didn't have a booth this time so she was there helping Kathy.   Kathy's pattern company is called The Cottage at Cardiff Farms and she always has some wonderful cotton and wool projects.   This time was no exception.  

I love this one.  

The wool mats were fabulous.   

Isn't this canister adorable?   So cute in a kitchen.   

This is Gail Pan of Gail Pan Designs.   She one of the wonderful Aussie designers who we all have come to love.  I swear...I want that accent!  I couldn't even get it to rub off on me!

After Fall Market last year, I got a Facebook message from Gail who was in a quandary.  She was supposed to ship her booth goodies to someone who would then bring them to Portland. I guess something came up and they weren't going to be able to do it for her.  So, knowing I live in Oregon, she asked me if she could ship them to me and then I could bring them to her.   Well, of course I said "Yes, certainly, no problem at all".

So here we are after she got her booth goodies all delivered. (Not the quilts....I might have had to "lose" one or two.  Hehe.  

But... wait...look what she made just for ME!  A darling little sewing caddy.

How sweet is that?  When everyone saw what she made me, they were all begging her to store her booth goodies.  Sorry gals, I got her first!  Thanks Gail.  I love it!

And here's Debbie Busby of  Wooden Spool Designs.  She is as sweet as she looks!

Check out all her new wool designs.  Ahhhh heaven!

I think I need to do the sewing one for my nest.  

We can never have enough Christmas, can we?

Darling little pincushions.   I should have taken a close up of the bee and ladybug because they were absolutely precious.  

I still have more pictures to show you and also my quilt-a-long progress with Sandy (no blog).   Look for those coming up.

Have a great week everyone.  

Hugs, Anne

I like that first one by Kathy Cardiff... and the quilt on the right side of the pic with Gail Pan (with the bird in the middle) and of course the Christmas one from Debbie. That's one beautiful sewie roll you were gifted!
