I wanted to keep a flying pig!

Minneapolis - one of my favorite city to go to the Trade show. I love to go to Portland, too.
The reason is, I could shop around the Convention Center.
Besides I love most of the restaurants. I feel I'm at Village in NY City.
I walked the TARGET street twice during the show. (I stayed there three nights)
I was a rush to go to the restaurant where I had a dinner with Blank Quilting members. (Second night). I forgot my camera and cell at our booth. I realized I did not have them on the way to go to our dinner. Thanks, God! I was last one at the Convention Center. My camera and Cell were still on the cafe table. I mumbled. "Now, I can eat!"

I was running to the restaurant! Hungry!!!!!
I saw these pigs in front of the Chinese store when I was walking fast.I had a chance to go back the TARGET street with my friend after our dinner on my third night.
This pig was $75.00 and heavy. Bigger size animals were $120.00 - 150.00.

They were attractive in front of the store!
It made me smile when I went back to my room.I love to be in the clean room, especially after my hard work.
This is a brilliant idea to organize my little stuff at the bathroom when I travel.

The Record May 19 2010 - Newspaper

A day before my business trip, I got emails from a couple of my friends about my article on the newspaper. I realized today is the day I'm on the newspaper.
I checked online news ---- Yes, I was there. WOW!
Then I went to the Gas Station's Stand to get "The Record"
I saw my picture on the front page of Better Living! WOW!I just came back from Spring Quilt Market!
I'm tired, but it is nice to be at my home with my family!

Spring, The International Quilt Market in Minneapolis

I'm still making the projects three days before the market!
No wonder, my friend called me, "Last minute, Lucy!"
The reasons of delay,
  • I couldn't get my new lines of fabrics in advance, because....
  • I couldn't approved the colors, so it was delayed to print. (All are great looking, now)
  • I heard, there is some delay stories for the mill in Korea.
  • I was making new fabrics designs for the Fall market until May 6th.
I needed to finish them before the market.
So far, they are named
  • Veggie Patch
  • Nature Land
I couldn't make the baby's line,,,,Zeee,
Actually, I did, but, I can make it better, if I have more time to do it.
So, they are coming soon!

These two groups are really gorgeous lines! I'm thinking about The Houston Show already.
