Spring Market

Remember me? I used to be a blogger.
I just can't seem to multitask. I either spend a lot of time taking photos, blogging and thinking of fun things to share OR I'm plopped in front of my Bernina and never look up the whole day. Hmmm, such a problem....Anyhow, lots of new things to share. So check back often for new pics.

To Market, to Market
Pittsburg was lovely. Seriously. I had (I think) the best hotel room in the city. This was my view - 9th floor, Renassaince Hotel, directly across from the ball park. There was a Pirates game all three nights that I was there. (I knew the hubby should have come with me.) They block off the 6th street bridge so that fans can walk to the stadium. The first night I was there I woke (ok, I was jet lagged and went to bed early) to fireworks ending the game. My whole window was filled with sparkle. What a sight.

Market? Oh yes, market! Lots to do, see and plenty of people to catch up with. So many wonderful new fabrics out this spring. Congratulations to Bari Akerman for her new debut line of scrumptious fabrics, Full Bloom. Sandy Klop did it again with a cute as a bug booth sporting her newest line, "Happy Camper" I was ready to pull up a camp chair and start toasting s'mores!

But as always, it was good to get home. I dove directly in to two art quilts that needed to be finished and didn't come up for air until today. I will post them next, so stay tuned!! Little tidbits at a time, friends.
