I got to go on a little fabric odyssey today and it was a pretty good time. Nick had a seminar or some such thing over at Google in San Jose, so I drove him down there this morning & spent the rest of the day finding fabric stores. I went to 3 quilt fabric shops and 1 very large JoAnn store that I've already been to 3 times. Can I help it if Sisters n Stitches is off the same exit as the big JoAnn? Nope.
Here's some of what I got today...
I finally got a call back from the Marin County Farmer's Market today too. Their next jury selection will be July12th. That gives me a little less than 6 weeks to get some things made and get my booth in order. They require photos or drawings of my booth, and I've never done a show. I figure I'll just set it all up in the driveway and take some pictures. That'll give me some practice too. I want to get a tent and hang a quilt in the back with my logo on it. I got the fabric for that today too, so I hope to get it made pretty quickly. I got some fabrics to make more of my pennants (the fat quarters upper left corner, there's some boyish ones too) so I can hang them in the tent as well.
Those tags you see there were only $1.00 for a pack of 88 and I liked that they were so colorful. I plan to make my price tags out of them. Not sure yet what I'll do with the red floral print, but it was on sale for $5.99 a yard and it's sooo pretty. I got that at the first shop, Prairie Queen Quilts, in San Jose. It was a pretty big store, and had lots of great stuff on sale. Nick would be proud of how little I actually got at these places.
Tomorrow maybe I can work on situating my sewing room. What a mess of boxes everywhere. eugh
