The unpacking is done and now since the visible clutter is contained, the mental clutter is starting to dissipate. I have a few more pictures of Pittsburgh to share.
This was in a booth called the Galloping Pony. Barbara Brackman also blogged about it today. It was simple, austere and almost zen like. Virginia Cole's work is a mixture of modern and primitive and I was enthralled. Check out her website. This piece is called a Hap. Depending on the size it can be a throw or a table runner. This lovely piece could EASILY be done in an evening. I am very motivated. Particularly when she said her background fabric was our woven from Flag Day Farm. Bravo, Virginia. Below is the Moda icon - Jan Patek. Jan is wearing her Girl Gang denim jacket. I covet this jacket. On it, besides her signature primitive applique designs - are other Moda designer signatures. Jan asked me to sign her sleeve and at the next market my name will be stitched on by Jan. Here is the back of her jacket - stunning!Please double click on the photo to enlarge and notice that Terry Thompson's name is misspelled. Awesome. Terry, herself misspelled her own name! I think it makes the coat more charming than it already is - if that is possible.
I am literally "going back to the drawing board" to design a quilt. The house is de-cluttered and maybe I can get something on paper. Wish me luck.
