It's finally Friday! I hope everyone has a fun, relaxing weekend planned! I plan on sewing all weekend! How's that for fun!? I'm feeling inspired to make some new, fun things. I've made a couple of new things this week for my Etsy shop! These are cute, inexpensive little stocking stuffers or quick gifts. First, I made some little pocket tissue holders, which have already come in handy for me, since we've got runny noses going on around this house already!

Next is a fun wrist strap for point and shoot cameras or cell phones. I've seen tons of cool neck straps for DLSRs, but not everyone has one of those kinds of cameras. I actually made of few of these last Spring, but never got around to putting them in my shop.

I've got just few more pictures from Quilt Market to share. And, according to the number generator, the winner of my little Fairies giveaway is number 2 - pink lemonade bags!!! Email me with your name and address!
Thanks everybody for leaving your nice comments! I've got another fun Quilt Market giveaway today too, so be sure to leave a comment!

Here is me and Lila Tueller. She is gorgeous and as sweet as can be!! She has a new line of fabric coming out in a few months call Soiree. It's beautiful, fun and bright! I ordered a bunch of prints from this line, so be sure to check back! Or better yet- sign up for my Hip Fabric mailing list to receive news on new products and promotions!

Head Spinning -Day 2

First, I need to start off with a little Halloween fun! My kids are completely into the Indiana Jones and Star Wars movies. Can't you tell?

We had a great night - no rain and it was actually "warm" for this time of year. The kids scored on the candy and had tons of fun. Needless to say, they crashed that night!

Now back to more Market action! Saturday morning we started off at the Michael Miller section to lend support and props to our friends. Patty Young and Paula Prass were debuting their new lines. Their booths were gorgeous, as were they!

I was so happy and excited for them! And while Myrinda stayed and talked, ahem, Jonah and I wandered. There was too much to see to be in one place for too long. Our next stop was the J. Caroline booth. Total eye-candy! In pretty tones of orange, it was like a creamsicle dream!

Need I say more? Amy Butler and me in her booth

My new doll friend Sheree pretty much summed up exactly how I feel about Amy. Since I started sewing as a true passion, she has been a true inspiration.

Amy's beautiful booth

Me and Tina Givens

I didn't get to meet Tina Givens at Spring Market, but was lucky enough to meet her this time around. Tina was so fun to talk to. She is so passionate and creative and warm.

Coolness at it's best -Jay McCarroll and Heather Bailey

The Girls-Myrinda, Sheree, Jonah and me

The person taking the pic didn't know how to use the camera, so we're a little blurry. We were standing in front of the new Freespirit Lifestyle products booth. They are starting a new line of lifestyle products, which is very exciting. One of the most coveted freebies of the whole show were the Sugar Snap bracelets. We stalked that booth every morning to snatch one, but were mostly unsuccessful - until the last day!!

The rest of the day was a wonder-filled adventure full of fabric, color, people, quilts, patterns and pure joy!

To cap off the first real Market day, I have a little Fairie giveaway. Here is a fun charm pack of Michael Miller's new Fairy Frost line. And an 8"x8" stack of Elinor Peace Bailey's new line, "Dance with Fairies" for P&B Textiles. Just leave a comment!
