Back for one day. Now off to Los Angeles to meet with the _______ company to discuss a new collection of _______. I have several meetings with other manufacturers & suppliers lined up for various projects I'll be designing in the coming year. I always love to visit L.A. We lived in Hollywood for a number of years & I'm still attached. Can't wait to get a Martha dog at Pink's!
Quilt Market was a fantastic whirlwind. Thank you to all of you kind folks who stopped by for a Hello. Such a supportive & charming industry to take part in. Lots of new fabric shops opening up, lots of fresh energy for sewing, lots of excitement for my new collections too. In fact, I have the coolest slideshow all ready for you, but have to postpone another week or so, as I'm already a couple hours late getting out the door.
Oh, and we're getting a puppy next week! (Don't tell my kids.) We have our pick of a litter of 7 Miniature Schnauzers. Isaac made that call. He researched which breeds were most hypo- allergenic (he gets bad allergies) & super smart and of good temperment. I'm going with the flow. We'll most likely get a female, but I'm not sure yet. Last time we visited them, they were still too small to see their personalities very well. I'd love your take on names. She/He will be grey & the breed is from Germany. Gretel? Bobbin? Griselda? I definitely prefer a non-human name. And funny is good. I have a list going somewhere.
Thanks, friends. I'll try to blog on the road, if possible. And, I'm serious about the dog name suggestions.
