Happy Halloween!
This little Happy Halloween banner is made by Martha Stewart and it is sold at Michael's! I was lucky enough to get it from my sweet friend Cindy. It was already sold out at Michael's when I found out about it. Darn no trick or treaters again . . . . we stocked up on delicious candy since several little people moved into our neighborhood this year but even with all our lights blazing we didn't get to see any little ghosts or goblins!

Pat Sloan stopped to visit at market and finally I thought to have someone take a photo of us to share with you . . . too bad I waited until the last day to think of that! I got to see so many darling friends at market - I will take photos of all of them in Portland at Spring Market!

It was such fun to see the darling girls from Quilters' Paradise (Clovis, CA) in their Utility Aprons when they stopped by to visit today! Shhhh don't tell anyone but market it sooooo much fun and I get to call it work!

First Day of Set Up at Quilt Market . . .

It looks pretty messy right now but there is still one more day to finish up and make it warm and inviting! More tomorrow . . .

two more pattern covers . . .

Color Inc does my photography and prints the covers . . . they are the very BEST! Lucky for me they are right here in the Phoenix area but they can help with photography, design and printing even if you don't live here.

Thank you for your very nice comments Dawn, Lisa, Nancy, Karen & Carol! That is especially nice when writing the directions - drudgery!

Quilt Pink Auction

Here is a link to the ebay auction for my little quilt . . . I almost missed it. I am happy to say there are a few bids on it - there were so many beautiful quilts donated not every quilt has found a home.

Here is another one of the new pattern covers - there is a coin purse, a make-up bag, small notebook cover, tissue case, eyeglass case, checkbook cover and a key fob. They were quick & fun to make. Thank you Edina and Dawn for your kind comments on the "Carry It All Tote" I really appreciate your thoughts. Quilt Market in Houston starts two weeks from tomorrow - oh my goodness so much work to get done - can't wait to see friends like Julie!

New Tote Pattern

This is one of the new patterns that will be available at the end of the month. The other new titles are In My Bag, Posy & A Tisket A Tasket. In the next few days I will post the other new covers. Writing the directions is the next step - it is tedious at best and probably my least favorite part.

Pumpkin & Cat Tree

This little wallhanging was a kit from Plain Jane's Quilt Shop in San Antonio, TX. Not sure if they still have this pattern/kit but they have a website and an ebay store with lots of primitive treasures. It still isn't quilted or even finished (see the thread on the bottom left side) - maybe I will try to work on it a little bit then put it back on the wall.

Odds & Ends

A tisket a tasket five more baskets - a table runner that will also be in the new basket pattern . . .

Better Homes and Gardens Creative Collection Quilt Pink magazine is on newsstands now. I am lucky to have a project in it "Oklahoma Roots" on page 76.

I think this quilt will be on the ebay Quilt Pink auction sometime early this month. If you search on ebay for Quilt Pink there are many wonderful quilts to look at and bid on.
