I was so traumatized by my foul-weather-flight into San Francisco on Tuesday, that I almost blocked it out until now. I was the ONLY person in my row of 6 people who didn't have her face in the "little blue bag" as we landed. In fairness to my fellow passengers, I wasn't nauseated, but I was crying huge alligator tears for the last 15 minutes of our flight. Wish that I had the presence of mind to snap a picture when we landed, it was a darkly funny scene.
Instead, I'll show you the last few shots I took of our booth...
This is the pink side of our booth. These fabrics are from our Teatime Floral II collection that have just arrived in the stores! We had a few bolts of our new range of our best selling Frosted Dots LH 03035 in champagne, pink & red tones positioned on the edges of the tables, so that people could come up and "pet the fabric". I was amazed at how many people did just that. The little dress on the end is Cheryl Winslow's latest creation, the "Madison Rose Dress" # MD-02.
Here's a close up of the pink endcap...
The "Sweet Tea" quilt I designed this summer, will be in American Patchwork & Quilting, which is due out in December, if memory serves. The "Garden Party" tote & DREAM pillow are by Penny. The sawtooth edged quilt which has a working name of "Stars & Stripes" on the lower left is one that will be in Quilts & More early next year. On the lower right, is my working name "Scrappy Pinwheels" quilt that will be in McCall's Quick Quilts next year as well. The quilt at the bottom is called "Poet's Corner", it was published earlier this year.
Last but not least is a slightly better picture of the new "Dolly Dress Up" quilt that will be in McCall's April 2010 issue (newsstand February). The Dolly Dresses 2 collection, (fabric for this and other quilts will be a part of), will be in the stores in late March/early April. At market, a lot of stores mentioned that they'd be taking orders ahead of time...so if you have a little cutie in mind for this colorful new collection, please make a note of this!
The lower quilts are made from fabrics in the Doll Dresses I collection from this past winter.
I will provide you with links to the LakeHouse website for a better look at all of the new Dolly Dresses 2 & 3 collection, just as soon as we are back in the office and we can get the fabric swatches online.
I hope to have some great shots of Marin, just as soon as the weather clears.
Back in two shakes... :º) H2
