Next stop after our wonderful relaxing cruise was the not so relaxing but much fun International Quilt Market. This year it was back in Minneapolis – I think my favourite venue…
I had the help of some very special long time Facebook friends and loyal Hugs ‘n Kisses stitcher's Joan and Susan..
and spent two days empyting my suitcases and turning it into something like this
With the release of my new fabric range ‘Fancy work Box’ which includes pretty apple greens the look was very soft and pretty this year – with that touch of spring freshness and vibrancy.Old favourites – red,white, redwork and embroidery were still favourites of the show.Of course the best part about market is meeting up with old friends- both designers – Jacquelynne Jost Stevesand shop owners – great to catch up with Jacqueline and Sandra from the Log Cabin in Germany where I stayed and taught a few years ago..
New friends were also made with fun times had by all…
once again, I couldn't have done it without these great friends..Joan and Susan….
What a wonderful place the internet is to be able to meet friends like these around the world… I wore them out – but hopefully they enjoyed it!!!
til the next instalment- yes there’s more… then of course I have so many new goodies to show you all.
hugs for today
