Fall Quilt Market 2013 and a Book Hop!

Hi everyone,

I should be packing. No wait...I should be done packing! I should be making pumpkin muffins - and cuddling with my girls tonight since I leave first thing in the wee hours of the morning to my home state of Texas. But I'm not done packing, I'm not done sewing, and I'm just not ready. I need another week despite being beyond excited, scared, nervous, pumped and all other things relating to this trip!

I wanted to let you know about a few things before I go...I've been really busy in the studio - so here goes....

If you are also going to Texas - come find me! No really! I want to meet as many of you as I can and take pics to share!  Here's my schedule:

Saturday - 3pm F+W Media Booth for a book signing!

Sunday - 11am Dritz (Prym) Booth for some Demo's and a book signing!

Saturday, Sunday and Monday - I will also be hanging out in the Sizzix booth demoing throughout the show.

If you want to keep tabs on me at Quilt Market as I refrain from drooling all over the gorgeous new fabrics, sewing notions and all the other eye candy...keep an eye on my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook feeds!

When I get back from Quilt Market, there will only be a few days left before the biggest (ok - only) Sewing Tales Book Blog Hop will start jumping! I'm so excited to share this news with you all and am so excited for, and grateful to all to all the participants! My husband made this awesome infographic, including a list of all the sponsors (Dritz, Fiskars, Bosal Foam, Fairfield World, and Free Spirit).

They were all such generous sponsors, not only did they provide product for the bloggers to put together one of the projects, but guess what?!....they gave me more to give away to you guys too! I had one giveaway on my facebook page last week, but I'll have a giveaway weekly for the rest of the year! That's 12 weeks of giveaways total! Watch this weekend for the Quilt Market Trivia giveaway!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week ya'll. Giddy up!
