Blog Stars and More!!

I told you yesterday that I was going to show you all the fab gals I've met through blogging that were at Market. It was such fun to be able to put names and faces together! My first event was Schoolhouse and I saw Sharon of Red Geranium Cottage and Nancy Noblog in the audience! I was so tickled to see some friendly faces there. Here we are I after Schoolhouse. Nancy took the picture so I stole one of her from Sharon's blog. Don't mean to imply she drinks alot, but it's the only one I could find of just her and you know, Sharon had all those drink coupons!

The next day I had a book signing and Jackie of Canton Village Quilt Works was there! She had this pic of us taken and I have no idea what I was looking at!

While walking around I ran into Cyndi Walker of Wishful Stitches! Note the bag she's modeling made from the Bees Knees fabric!! How cute it that??

Not far away I got to meet the infamous Pam of PamKittyMorning! She's as much fun as I knew she'd be.

She was there with Late Bloomer Quilts as Elizabeth's Trusty Sidekick! Her quilts are absolutely darling!

Meeting all these gals was such a delight! I aspire to be half as good at blogging and admire their talents. What a joy!!

I also got to visit with some old friends while I was there. Karen Snyder of Anna Lena's (soon to be not!) and I got to stroll the aisles and have lunch together. Her new fabric collections with Timeless Treasures were wonderful! Did you know that she has been recently tapped as the new "Face of Elna"? You'll be seeing her alot in the coming days! Karen and I also got to play in Spring, TX one day between Market and Festival. More about that later.

I also got to spend some time with my "Soul Sister" Darlene Zimmerman. Our stuff is so alike sometimes it's scary! No pic of us together - forgotten camera thing again, but here is one of her. Like you don't know what she looks like!

Linda Jenkins of Piece O Cake and I got to have an early dinner and shop the Festival on Wed. night together. We've been friends for a long, long time and we always have a great time. Here's a pic of her and Pat Sloan who I met when we were both designing for P&B. That girl works harder that anyone I know!! I have no idea how she does it. She's the new demo girl for the George machine with APQS.

Here's Pat & me looking a bit fuzzy. Could it be that Bill's hand was shaking from taking in so much beauty at one time??

Bill and I got to have a lovely dinner with Barbara Jones of Quilt Soup and her hubby one evening while we were there. We had such a wonderful visit. She always does something fun and fabulous with my new fabric. Here she is with a quilt called Oklahoma Pop-ups. She named it that because I live in OK!! She just started blogging and is doing a GREAT job! She also has a new fabric coming out soon with Henry Glass. I got to see it on paper and it is WONDERFUL!!

Well, there you have it. You've met all my buds both new and old. I feel like the luckiest person in the world to know all these gals! We're off to see the kids in OKC this afternoon and go to Grandparents Day with Cameron. When I get back I'll show you how I tried to keep the economy going while I was gone. See you then!

Blessings~
