And I’m close to feeling 100% back 2 normal.
Of course there are always benefits to dropping dead . . .

Quilt Market in Portland!
Even though I wasn’t feeling totally up to par, I made it to Quilt Market in Portland, Oregon last week!
We unveiled califon, my new line from Mark Lipinski’s Home for Northcott, which was a big seller, as was Mark Lipinski’s Quilter’s Home. So to say I’m blessed, lucky, or whatever is an understatement! Thanks, you guys for everything!
Here are some photos of my Northcott booth.
I met two women at market who embellished their jackets with my first line of fabric, Katmandu! The photos do no justice!
Here are some up close shots of their embellishment!
