Glitches and Snags

Things aren't running exactly the way they are supposed to be.  Nothing major or horrible - just not copacetic.  If you were still wanting a hooked stocking kit - there is one left - a blue one.  If you go to our website it looks like they are sold out.  Email us HERE if you are interested in the last one.

Our whiz-bang website lady - Lisa - works evenings.  We email here things we want done on the website and the next morning they magically appear.  We don't think this kit will last the day to make it to the evening edit. Polly will have some more in red and white later in the summer.


I went to the farmer's market this morning.  It was way past my usual time.  I try to get there early, between 7 and 8 am when the parking is a bit easier and the booths are still stocked with the good stuff.  There are the usual suspects there at 8 am - the local cooks.  The same folks are there week after week scouting out fresh greens, asparagus and heirloom vegetables.  This morning I got there at 10am.  What I found was a seething mass of people who may or may not be interested in buying vegetables.  There were dawdlers, tourists, and slow walking hipsters.  Oy!  {shaking my cranky old-lady fist at aisle-blocking, pierced and tattooed youngun's, sipping espresso}  Thanks, I feel better now.

You may remember I posted a few days ago that Polly and I won't be having a booth at this Quilt Market.  When it was time to register for a booth last winter Polly and I found we had other plans.  We both needed to leave early on the last day of Market and it is verboten to take down a booth before the end of Market.  So, with a quick conference with Lissa Alexander - the guru of Marketing at Moda and the brains behind the Moda presence at Kansas City - we decided to be in the shared booth at this market.  There will be a few of us there - the last I heard it would be Aneela of ComfortStitching, French General, yours truly, and a few others.  Of course, since then, those plans have changed and now it looks like we COULD have had a booth.  It's too late now.  What were those plans?? Well Polly is having a house guest in Naples.  Quiltmania is coming to photograph her condo for an upcoming feature.  The photo shoot was to be on Monday, the day after Market, but now it will be on the Monday before.  We are pretty excited about this.  We LOVE Quiltmania! It will be lots and lots of Polly's rugs and her impeccable decor, and of course, a few of my quilts.


I had plans to leave early on the last day of Market also for an exciting adventure.  Now, it looks like I'm staying till the close of Market - and then my adventure begins.  I'll be posting a lot about that in the next few weeks.

Until then, Happy Mother's Day to all.
