TAP TAP TAP - anyone out there. I know it's been awhile since I've posted and read any blogs. I hope you haven't forgotten about me :). I know I have lots to catch up on in all of your neck of the woods. My computer service while I was away was pretty scarce so that's why only 1 post happened while I was in Houston. Market was lots of fun and lots of work. With only 2 of us in Kari's booth
- even shopping was limited. Heck we were lucky to get away to have a tinkle break, so shopping didn't happen until very late Monday afternoon before the close of the actual market. We had hoped to have time to walk the show each morning before it opened to see what was new and there just was never enough time. I did manage to find a few new things for the website tho with the little shopping time I did have and will get them posted when Kari gets back. I didn't have room in my suitcase to bring them home on the plane so she is bringing them home after Festival which she is staying and vending at. I was going to stay with her and help but I just can't afford to be gone for 2 weeks with the house building going on and decisions that need to be made in person not over the phone. I will say that I sure was glad to get home last night and sleep in my own bed and have my coffee in my happy cup this morning.
So while I was gone Mr. Farmhouse called on Sunday morning to tell me that there was a blizzard happening in farmhouse country. So to channel Sharon - OH NO IT DIDN'T" and yes it did. Only a few inches came down, but strong winds made driving not so good. It's to dang early for that kind of weather. So since the temps aren't to high it was still sticking around when I got home so I could see it and share it with you
I am one of those weird people who enjoy the snow and winter. I actually love the 4 seasons and the changes that each of them bring. BUT this snow is to early even for me.
Soooo let's channel Ms Sharon again and say I actually met her - "OH YES I DID", lol. I first saw her and NancyNoBlog on Friday while they were heading to schoolhouse to do some learnin (that's not a typo folks, just my version of humor). We chatted awhile and then they came to one of Kari's lectures. They stopped by the booth on Saturday and we made plans to meet for dinner that night with Anne.
We had so much fun and lots and lots of laughs. I only wish that we had more time for visiting, shoot I just wish they all lived close by - these ladies know how to have a good time. Thanks bloggy peeps for a very fun evening, it was such a treat to meet :).
I'm almost ashamed to say this, but little silver hardly ventured out of the bottom of my purse. I certainly have no pictures from the actual market with the exception of Kari's booth at the top of the post. I seriously meant to take a few pictures around me - there was a Japanese booth right behind us with adorable things. I mean how convenient would that be for a picture - never happened. I'm sure tho that others will have pictures on their blogs to share of market. Met some wonderful quilt shop owners from all over the world and so much fun to learn about their neck of the woods. We had 15 minutes on Monday afternoon after the close of market to quickly tour the quilt exhibit before that closed so I did get a few pictures of some of my favorites that I was allowed to photograph.
So now I have a nice quiet schedule for several months to get caught up on things and get started on others. I feel like I've been behind for sometime and am looking forward to getting back into my old routine and getting back to doing things I haven't taken the time for. I'm planning on having lots to share with you in the coming weeks of projects and some baking goodies. Time to start the nesting of the farmhouse for winter.
So thanks for stopping by the farmhouse if your still with me, LOL. I will sign off with some of the quilts from the exhibit at market. Hope you enjoy them
Until Next Time
