It was less than a year ago that I was packing my bags and preparing to head out to the International Quilt Market in Houston for the first time. I was so nervous and overwhelmed, completely unsure of what to expect.
Market was such an amazing experience, everything I could have hoped for and more. I met so many wonderful, talented, creative and fun people (including the lovely Lady M at left). I saw such an array of gorgeous fabrics and cool, new patterns.
It was less than a year ago that someone asked me why I was at Market and, in response to my answer, asked, “What are you doing to make that happen?” Eight words that sent me on my merry way, to things that had only been a dream.
So today I pack my bags and ready for my return to Houston, my third trip to Market. A little less overwhelmed, still a bit nervous but so very excited about what I’m doing to make it happen.
