It is now over and we laughed a lot. A success, anyway you measure it. Last night we had a wonderful meal with good friends. Quite possibly the best meal ever. We dined at Alma. Alma is a recent winner of a James Beard award for best restaurant in the Midwest. We all agree. Make sure to go if you are ever in the area. Carrie Nelson and her booth helper Judy came with us. Because there was a "Prom" at our hotel at the very same time, the outside of our hotel was littered with limos. We took advantage and hired an idle limo driver for a short drive to the restaurant. We kind of felt important. Here is Carrie showing us the way to enter a stretch limo - ladylike. I didn't do such a great job.
Seriously, the waiters took away our plates and not a crumb was left by any of us. Superb! Okay, on to more Quilt Market pictures..... Here is the pillow from Renee Plains booth. Renee is a delight and her booth is a must visit at every market.
At the Lecien booth, our friend The Happy Zombie was showing her first line of fabric. This was children's clothing made out of it. Adorable, Monica.
This booth was called The Red Thread. The wool quilts were lovely.
Sandy Gervais had another knockout booth with her Frolic collection.
Now, it's early to bed and back on the road tomorrow. More to follow when I am home.

Thank You for allowing us to be at quilt market with your pictures. It sure is neat to see the booths, maybe someday I will get a chance to attend. Sounds like you had great fun and a wonderful meal, but I'll bet it's good to be home.

Next time you are in Minnepolis - eat at Hell's Kitchen in downtown Minneapolis. Lemon Riccota hotcakes - YUM! They make their own peanut butter and you can buy a jar to take home. Yum Yum!
