The Car is Packed and Contest

I'm almost ready to leave for St. Louis. It's only a 4 hour trip. But I will have to make a stop or two. (Antique shops along the way!) I always need more dishes.

Before leaving I want to let you know a couple of things.

1. We have a new quilt pattern coming out. The title is Wild Pomegranate. It will be similar in format to Hallowe'en - 1904. Here's a glimpse.

This set-up was really fun to do. Barb spotted these hydrangeas at a local gas station. She dropped by and asked if she could take a couple of blooms. A young woman working the cash register told Barb she thought it would be fine. Makes me want to go to the nursery and purchase a couple of shrubs. These blooms are lush!

Leave your name in the comments section and I will draw 3 winners when I get back Monday night. Will send each winner a pack of our new cross stitch releases. (One book and three patterns)

Thank you for checking this site. When Quilt Market is over I promise to be a better blogger.

Later alligator!

Alma

P.S. Taking my camera.....will get some photos of market for you too if Barb lets me out of the booth.
AND Faustina # 167 send your address to alma@blackbird-designs.com for your prize...I haven't heard from you yet.

    Don't eat too much convention center food--it will just "sit" in the bottom of your tummy for the whole day--and you'll know this, but you'll be in line again the next day. Yes, this is "eating out," but no, really nice restaurants don't typically serve your cola in a red and white paper cup.
    Safe travels, and have fun!
