Market day one...or at least part of day one

As everyone knows I am a HUGE Aurifil fan as are most people I know that sew. As Heather said on her blog " It is the s***".  So first thing, straight away, Laurie and I headed over to meet Mr. Aurifil ( before all of his other swooning fans) in the flesh, covered by a really nice Italian suit and a super fine shirt of course ;o)

The yummy threads in so many colors are fabulous but what I had forgotten to photograph was that Aurifil has colors in sets that match perfectly with Moda fabrics.  I was a bit smitten with meeting the thread guy ( as Laurie calls him) silly me so please forgive me for missing those shots.

I think Alex is afraid of me... he has a very nervous smile and I am sure the thought of " Uh oh...another crazy fan" LOL!

Much more at ease with Laurie since they are old friends :o)


This is the center aisle from almost the back of the convention center. I know for a FACT that in two days and a LOT of walking ( I lost 4lbs while there) I did not see all of the booths.

There were so many beautiful booths with quilts I could not decide what to look at first.  These minis were very cute.

This one is a must do and look at the super cute tumbler beside it!!!!



Just walking around looking at being inspired...

I'm so glad you had a great time. I agree. Nothing can prepare you for market--or the total sensory overload. I really enjoy seeing the business side of things.

Yay for such a fun time... So what you're saying is, Market is fab for the waistline, but crap for the fabric diet? ;o)

Love the quilt photo just under your title of "being inspired." The colors are great.
