Expo was a blast! I worked all day Saturday and had so much fun meeting people and helping them pick out patterns and fabric. A big “hi” to blog reader Leslie, who came by to meet me. Loved getting to chat you up and I’m sure we’ll be running into each other again!

I stopped by Friday to take some pics and do a little shopping since I figured (quite right) that I’d be too busy to shop on Saturday. Surprisingly, I practiced rather amazing restraint but I’m sure it had nothing to do with the fabric buying binge I’d been on the previous week. Or that I’m saving myself for Shop Hop at the end of the month.

My feet felt double their normal size by the time I got home that Saturday. Needless to say, Sunday was a big loafing day for me.

More pics on my Flickr, if you want to check ’em out.


The Original Sewing & Quilt Expo opens today! I’ve been the past two or three years and really enjoyed it, mostly just checking out all the cool wares for sale on the Expo floor. Last year, I even took a couple of classes and that was great.

There are lots of great deals to be had, especially on machines. I bought my sewing machine at the Expo last year for an amazing price. I’ve yet to see it lower anywhere in the past 12 months and it’s been a great machine (excepting that little ghost sewing incident).

If you’re going, be sure to stop by the Intown Quilters booth (231) and say “hi.” I’ll be working this morning (until about 1) and then again on Saturday.
