daybook ::32::

 . . . the "rug" I made for my booth!. . . (from my Georgia Lou line)

for today :: October 27, 2010

outside my window. . .   clear, sunny wonderfully crisp autumn morning.

I am thinking. . . about today's to-do list. . . it's not too bad - I'm pretty much ready for leaving for Quilt Market tomorrow.

from the kitchen. . . coffee. . . so far. I'm thinking a nice egg white omelette with some sharp cheddar (yum!)

I am wearing. . .  t-shirt & crop pants.

I am creating. . .  quilt tags for my booth. (. . . & will prep a new stitchery today - to take on the plane)

I am remembering. . .  Mom. . . she is flooding my thoughts. (I am going to Houston & doing my booth by myself - but really, Mom will be there with me. . .)

I am reading. . .  (re-reading really)  'A Lineage of Grace - by Beverly Lewis. . . (I'm waiting for my pre-ordered copy of 'Decision Points' - by George W. Bush to arrive - next week!)

I am hoping . . .  that I sleep well tonight. . . tomorrow (flight to Houston & starting booth set-up) will be a long day!

I am hearing. . .  (besides the buzzing/ringing in my ears (!) - does that happen to you?) - the wonderfully quiet of the morning. . .

around the house. . .  suitcases out - last orders ready to be shipped. . . a little bit of organized chaos.

I am going. . .  to go through the to-do list one by one. Hoping to be done by afternoon.

one of my favorite things. . .  knowing that once Market starts - I will get to "rest" compared to getting ready for it!.

a few plans for the rest of the week. . . the Fall International Quilt Market! 

from my picture journal . . .
 . . . actually these are a peek of a some of the new designs that I'll have at Market. . .

. . . two of the versions of  new quilts in 'Opie's Home'

. . . & here's a peek at the little woolie mats that I made called, 'Buttons, Needles, Needles, & Pins' -  (there are also embroidery versions. . .)

So, I'm off to Market. . . Hope you have a great weekend!

Going to be by yourself at the booth? Setting up and everything? I wish I were there to help you, but I won't be there... I hope nobody step on the beautiful "rug". :-) I love your new quilts.
