where'd the Red Rose Farm go?


It went with me. To Houston...but now it's back and so am I. Well, sort of. Market was wonderful, as I'm sure you already know since most people have managed to post about it already...I'm still editing photos and trying to get things back to normal. I consider myself lucky--the house is still standing, and as far as I can tell, nothing was broken.

So what's all this that I'm showing today? Pam and I were so lucky (again) to have wonderful neighbors across the aisle. That definitely helps when you're in a booth for three straight days! We got to know Carolee and her beautiful daughters--they've started a new fabric company, but if their designs look familiar it's because they've been in the scrapbooking industry for many years. Carolee gave me this piece of canvas--can't wait to play with it. Their fabrics are fresh and bright--you'll want to be looking for them.



What's that on top? Oh, no big deal...really...just what I think is the best issue of "The Quilt Life" ever. The fact that my house is featured? And a new quilt design? Purely a coincidence.



It just so happens that I've been given an extra copy of the magazine. So you know what that means. Leave a comment and on Friday I'll send it on its way. Carolee also gave me a copy of one of her pattern books so I'll throw that in as well.

Hopefully you're already subscribing to "The Quilt Life" but if not, it's available at many independent quilt shops or at Barnes&Noble.

I need to get back to shoveling a path to my studio...

I've not seen the Quilt Life magazine yet. Glad that your girls made it back safely, although Pam apparently has some scars to show for it :-)

Oooh, I'd love to see your house! ;-) Were you guys on the row where they were filming something? I came back the last day to find your booth and in the few seconds I had to run up and down aisles, I couldn't find it. I did skip that filming aisle though.... ;-)

I want to make your quilt already, just by seeing the little snippet of it. Your Vintage Christmas Ornament pattern is on my cutting board and my Red Rose Farm quilt went to the quilter last week. I can't wait to show you what I did with your gorgeous fabric! As you can see, I love your patterns and fabric!

Hi Elizabeth,
Thanks for stopping by my booth. I never made it down to your end that last day we were busy until the very end.

I enjoyed meeting you and have thought of you often (while I've been finishing my manuscript). Enjoyed the chat. Your booth looked adorable.

Poor Pam!!!OH my.

I too have not had time to breathe since market and have not blogged much. But the book is done and now it is on to "other things" wink wink.
