It’s MAY! I love May! Except it’s crazy town at my house getting ready for Quilt Market in 12 days.
I’ve been staying up way to late getting ready…
…and dragging myself out of bed to get kids to school in the morning and trying not to look like a zombie Mom. The trick is to wear workout clothes to school drop off.
All the other parents think I’m dropping off my kids and going for a 5 mile run…when really I’m going home and doing this:
Works like a charm.
I’m super close to having all of my market quilts and patterns and booths planned. Then I’ll be able to cool it and breathe a little bit, and sleep when normal people do.
I might even take a shower and change out of my “workout” clothes.
Did I tell you we got a kitty? His name is Wilson. He’s so cute I can’t help but smoosh him in my face (don’t worry I’m a gentle smoosher).
We’ve had him for 3 weeks and love him sooooo much!
Winston is adorable…. I wouldn't get anything done with that little cutie hanging around!
OOOpps….make that Wilson!
oh he is a cuddlebug !!! Love orange kitties !
Beautiful new fabric line & an adorable kitty! He looks like a Maine coon with his long hair and round face.
Awe so cute!! I totally get the face smoothing, my new kitty is 9 months old now and I still smoosh her every chance I get :)
Beautiful quilts, precious children,adorable kitten. Life is good.
What a cute little kitty! I can't wait to see why you show at quilt market! The sneak peek looks amazing!
The kitty and the kid are running a tight neck and neck for cuteness.
Such a cute little kitty! And I'm looking forward to seeing how your booth looks, all your sneak peeks of your quilts look amazing. :)
I love that your trainers (sneakers?) match your quilts in progress! They're all looking beautiful and Mr Wilson is just the cutest bundle of fluff!
Very cute kitty. Difficult not to cuddle! Success with the quilt market
what a pretty kitty, long haired and ginger together make for my favourite cat.You are certainly very busy have a great rime in your booth
He's so cute, I love cats:-) And your quilts look great! Who needs a workout when you can have quilts instead?
Lol! So that's why there are so many moms in workout clothes at drop off! I just wear my pajamas and don't get out of the car. Seriously.
Your quilts are so gorgeous!!! Those colors! Those designs! Makes me want to sew today! Hey try to get some rest and snuggle your cute kitty. Wish I could see your booth, bet it's going to be a beauty!
Such a cute little furbaby! (kitty) and your quilt designs are absolutely gorgeous xx
On top of everything you got a new fur baby? =) hope you get to take some time and enjoy Minneapolis while you are here.
I'm going to try your "work out clothes" trick…..and Wilson is adorable. Maybe he will fit in your suitecase full of "Hazel" quilts and you can take him to market with you? xxoo
Haha! I love the workout clothes routine. I used to drive my daughter to Kindergarten wearing my PJs. I am not a morning person! I love Wilson. What a sweet kitty!
Smoosh that little kitty a lot . . . they grow up even faster than kids do. Good luck with Market.
Ha Ha, I just had the workout clothes conversation in my own head yesterday – I hadn't showered, so I put on workout clothes to run errands – that way I had an excuse to look bedraggled and to smell bad! I love that quilt you are showing – it will sell like hotcakes – your color choices are fabuloso! We got a really cute kitten, too. His name is Angus and we are all agog about him around here as well. But he is into absolutely everything! It's like I need to baby-proof the house all over! Wish I was going to market – have fun and good luck.
Love seeing peeks of what you're working on…and give little Wilson a big hug from me! He's a sweetie for sure.
I want those shoes!! What brand are they? Don't worry, things will work out! I have your fabric on notification at the FQS. I want the pink bundle! Have fun a quilt market. You have new patterns? I will get them too!
Wilson is so cute. You have a supervisor now. My cat will sit with me in my sewing room and watch. I love your morning outfit. Going to give that a try.
I am sure your things will be a hit at market. Love the quilt blocks you showed. Hope you get your rest and don't get sick! You are a busy lady with a business and children!
Love your honesty about real life!! :-) And you can only do that routine when your kids are little because when you get older you are going to need more sleep than you ever did before!! I can't get away with the 7 hours of sleep anymore and my body would be happy if I graced it with 9 hours!! Your fabric looks wonderful and the quilts look fabby: can't wait to see them when you post them for "show and tell" !! Hope you get some good sleep soon!! And your kitty is ADORABLE!!! It's a wonder you get any work done at all with him around!! Have a great time at market!!! Hugs, H in HeaLDSburg
PS; I wounder if you like your kitty because he's a red-head like your littlest one?!! :-)
Orange kitties are the best!! He'll be in all kinds of trouble soon.
That triangle quilt looks amazing, can't waitt to see the final product!
Work out clothes are the best! Absolutely loving your new fabric line and am looking forward to getting my hands on some. It's gorgeous :)
Love your kitty, love your quilts and Love, love, love your new fabric line!
Your quilts look gorgeous, Allison! I can't wait to see them all! Ahh….and to get my hands on some of that beautiful Hazel fabric!!!
The more I see of your Hazel line, the more I love it.
Your fabric is awesome and I want your kitty!!!
Wilson IS SO CUTE!!!!!!!
HI – love your blog and can't wait to buy Hazel fabric collection! It reminds me of happy summer days!
I had some kind of comment about your sewing but then seen the photo of Wilson and lost my train of thought. So CUTE!!!
