Home from Market!

I went to Houston for 2 quick days of Quilt Market & I'm back.  I have LOTS to show you... but it'll have to wait since I'm headed to the airport to pick up my parents!!  Today is their big move day... and I'm excited to see them!!

After all their belongings were packed... mother nature decided to give them one last snow!  It was the first time that snow accumulated in the philly area since sometime in the 1960's!!  Crazy I know!

A few things.
1. Thanks for the all the love on my new patterns.  You guys rock!

2. I will pick the last two winners of giveaway week & post them soon.  { Winners Post }

3. I'll post more market photos & tell you all about it.  For now here are a few peeks!

It was actually October 1979...the last time there was an October snowfall of two or more inches. Glenn the Bowtie made sure to tell us. LOL

I never would have thought that Philly had been snow free for that long in Oct. Glad they're finally going to join you in sunny CA.

Love the Market pictures - can't wait to hear about your trip.
