Its been a hectic couple of weeks and I've spent the last few days catching up with all my work. I was in Portland, Oregon with Daphne, my business partner and our two daughters Lindsay and Bronwen. We spent one day sightseeing and shopping and then began work with our patterns and book promotions. We had a booth set up where shops and distributors checked us out and saw the new designs and the techniques we use. It was a lot of fun, exhausting and exciting. It was perhaps our 14th Market so we know what its all about, but we see the new fabrics, products and themes that quilters will be working with in the next few months.
