Houston Market 2008

Maybe I didn't get to go to market, but my friends at Quilting Treasures sent me these great pics with Marie Osmond at their booth!!

Here is a quilt I made for Market from the Ellie Fun line by Quilting Treasures. Thanks for sending this pic to me Donna!!

Another great pic with Marie Osmond, and my Quilting Treasures friend, Donna McKinney at the booth.

While everyone was at Market, a few of us were enjoying the Utah mountains at a retreat I taught this weekend at my friend, Kelly's cabin. We are all set up and ready to quilt on Friday night. It was cold outside, but with a fire going and good food, we hardly noticed!!

It rained really hard one day, and then the hail storm came in, and turned the ground white in no time!

There was a warm fire to keep us cozy.

Here is Phyllis Suiter with her completed Victorian Christmas Star quilt. She was the first one done!! Great job, Phyllis!! She was my walking buddy in the mornings too, we had alot of dessert to walk off!! LOL!!

Shopping in St George is always fun, and this store is no exception. Lazy Cottage had beautiful quilts hanging out on the porch.

Now we are home, and back to reality for awhile. Little Roxy is at the vet today, getting spayed. I pick her up after 3:00, and I sure hope she will feel ok really soon! It is such a relief to have the Market quilts finished and now I will concentrate on the longarm jobs that have been waiting for me.
Before long the holidays will be here and there is so much to do before then!! Good stuff, like Jury Duty, Dr's appointments, you know, fun stuff like that!!!
I hope I can get some homemade goodies and gifts done in time, and enjoy it along the way. My longarm room is being framed this coming weekend, and I'm getting the bug to clean out and sort through the whole sewing room. Imagine being able to find something the first time!! Well, a girl can always try! Lol! Until next time,
keep quilting!

That looks like a fabulous place to have a quilting break.

I'm blog-hopping through Chookyblue's SSCS list to meet all the others in the swap :-)

Man oh man!! We missed Miss Marie. She was there the day we left. I was so bummed.
That cabin is to die for. I could retreat there for sure. WOW!!!
And I love seeing that snow and the coldness. I'm so tired of the heat.
