Houston-A Quick Peak at our Booth

We have been so busy here in Houston at the International Quilt Festival that we hadn't taken any pictures of our booth, let alone anything else.  Here is a overall pic of our great corner location on "Main Street".  It is so easy to tell everyone that we are under the Row 1400 sign.
 Our new hand-dyed perle cotton threads are displayed on a vintage window shutter that Kristin found at the Hillsville, VA Labor Day Flea Market, it compliments our "shabby chic" curtains and overall look.  She also found a vintage collapsable ruler that we fashioned into a star...very appropriate don't you think since we are in the "Lone Star" state.  Notice the "Create" pillow, Kristin made it using a freezer paper stencil on burlap...literally hours before we left for Houston.
 Here's a close-up of our corner island from a different perspective, shown below is the "ole Crow" pillow I screenprinted using thermofax screens.  The branches are from a photo Kristin took of the sidewalk at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Show in Hampton, VA in February.  We were walking from the building and she couldn't find her camera fast enough.....maybe I'm wearing off on her just a bit.  She certainly finds some interesting things to photograph.
The booth didn't exactly look like this when we finished setting up on Wednesday, but by the end of Thursday we had sold out of some things, had to rearrange and find some new items to put out.  Will have to do the same thing again tomorrow morning.  Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth, your business and encouragement are greatly appreciated.

Another fun part of Houston is getting the chance to see old friends you only see once a year and make new ones.....oh and the quilts....which we haven't had a chance to see yet...that usually happens on Sunday morning when we open a tad later.
