I know Pam has already discussed the book signing, as has sweet Sandy...but I've got to talk about it as well.
It was no surprise that Leslie and Melissa had worked their magic on the shop...it looked wonderful. While I would have been more comfortable sitting in a little corner out of view, it worked out very well.
The backdrop was "Garden Fresh" from the book and on the table is the "R is for Rose" quilt top Pam made--and the kits sold out FAST, but I believe more fabric is on order (and In Between Stitches does ship, in case anyone out there is interested in a kit.)
Here's the "Sweet Dreams" baby quilt from the book surrounded by darling gift items and fabric.
Then there was my concern that no one would show up...but we had a really nice turn out--with some of my very favorite customers! It was great to see Sandy and so flattering that she wanted a copy of my book because after all, she's written a gorgeous book herself.
And my all-time favorite girl showed up--that would be Frankie, of course!
And did I mention cake?
OH YEAH. Super good cake. With amazing frosting. I heard several people threatening to just slurp the frosting right off--it was THAT good. Glad they controlled themselves otherwise I wouldn't have been able to have THREE PIECES. (Did I just admit that?)
There was one customer who kept following people around with fork in hand...hoping that someone out there didn't want their frosting.
Anyway, it was great except for when my camera died. I really wanted to get a pic of Pam in her amazingly adorable yellow polka dot dress--made from the kind of fabric that makes you just want to grab your rotary cutter and slice border-sized strips right off her body (hey, she was wearing a slip!)
So thanks to everyone who was a part of that terrific day!
