Yep, we'd stand in line in the cold for a quilt show!
Fortunately the rain has stopped! Still, a great day to be a quilter!!
Wow and was it ever a busy wonderful wild day!
Thanks to all the fabulous folks who came by the A-1 booth today to test drive the smoothest quilting machine...I'm meeting folks from all over the great state of Texas (yep, it's big and we're proud) as well as a lovely lady from my old stopping grounds in Tennessee -- she's ready for an A-1 and will be in touch with our dealer from that area.
It's been my pleasure to meet some of my internet friends whom I only know by name -- I regret that I've neglected to take photos..but did remember to take this one...my LA list friend Suzie -- she and her handsome hubby came by for a delightful visit. I commented to him that I really liked the 'statement' he was wearing on his shirt -- "Faith". Yep, sometimes we share more in common that our passion for quilting and I love that!
I did take a few more photos today that I'd love to share as they were soooo cute -- photos of our future quilters! Several children were in attendance today with their moms and grandmoms and of course they wanted to play on the machines too. I did ask permission before I took the photos and told the parents if they emailed me I'd send them the digital forms... but I didn't ask if I could post them. Regretfully we live in a sometimes dark and dangerous world and I wouldn't want to do anything that could be potentially harmful to one of these precious ones..so I'll share a different photo -- one of their signatures! Kids are so fascinated about writing their names on a quilt! Just wished I could have cut it out and gave it to them...
It really was difficult to pull away from the booth day, even for a short lunch break (thank you once again to our show committee in charge of feeding the vendors)...I found myself gobbling my food as if I hadn't eaten in a week and wanting to rush back to the booth to see what I was missing. In my scurrying back I happened to notice this...
my reminder to slow down and take time to enjoy the journey!
Quilt Rambler signing off, I'm all talked out (grin)
