                          Calm Before the Quilt Show Storm

We have been home from the Wisconsin wedding for a week now, and I'm still tired.  Doesn't help that we came home to a oven of heat and humidity.  I love where I live, except for the 2 weeks in August every year that heats up and makes me wish for air conditioning. 

This is my last weekend home until November.  We have shows every weekend, except for a quick trip to Seattle to another wedding.   I have a stack of quilting projects that need quilting, but the room is so bloody hot that it is going to have to wait.  

We have been working on my first set of Wool Christmas Ornaments.  We are going to offer completed sets at Sample Spree this year at the Houston Quilt Market.  Sample Spree is an opportunity for shop owners to purchase completed samples for their shops.  Also fabric manufactures are there offering the newest fabrics, designers are there showing off the newest patterns and notions.  A bunch of work has to happen now to make it look as effortless as it does at market. 

I have lots of wool to prep, but I'm so looking forward to getting back on the road.  

My first show is the Big Bear show in Big Bear CA, next Saturday & Sun  Sept  5th & 6th of Sept. 

If you are in the area, please come by and say hi.  Shawn
