Feeling much better, thank you

I don’t know how the Europeans do it.  The time change just did me in.  My brain felt “fuzzy” and my words were actually coming out wardsback.  LOL! But today I am SO much better!  I couldn’t wait to get up to my studio this morning!

New fabric 002

I opened up my bundle of fabric from The French General and into my beautiful silverware box it went.  “Rouenneries” is my first Moda love from this market.  In shades of beige, taupe, gray, old red, and red, it’s so French and so elegant!  She even has LINEN in the line!  LINEN!!! Be still my heart!

And what do you get when you put two green boxes together?

The unveiling…finally!

These are the precious little bunnies that Carrie brought to me at market!  Have you ever seen anything like them?  I adore these bunnies Carrie almost as much as I adore you!  Thank you so much!

New Fabric 006

And how about this bundle of “Sweet Abundance” by Camille and Bonnie.  I am LOVING this fabric too!  So many assorted colors to work with!  This is going to be a fun one and I can’t wait!

Here’s a picture of me and Bonnie in Camille’s and Bonnie’s booth.  Had I known my collar was so bad I would have immediately fixed it.  You know that of course.

And then it happened. I was in my booth and the PERFECT hair cut walked in.  A customer came in and really, I could hardly concentrate on selling her patterns because I loved her hair so much.  She’s from Italy and I want my hair just like hers but I can’t fly to Italy once a month.

She let me take pictures so I can show my hair stylist.  The next time you see me it will be from a side view.  Think I need to buy new expensive earrings.

More to come!

    How much fun was it for me after I got home from shopping to discover that I had bought some Bunny Hill Designs fabric. I feel like I bought fabric from a friend. Miss Emma’s Garden.ReplyCancel

  • Mary - If I had seen those bunnies, I would have immediately thought of you … and we have never met.

    Love, love the fabrics and love the fact that you couldn’t concentrate because you were staring at someones hair. Now there’s a brain that my brain can relate to.

    Thanks again for taking us to Market with you. I got all the perks with no jet lag.ReplyCancel

  • Magnolia Bay Quilts - I love all your new fabrics, and I’ve really enjoyed reading your blog posts about Quilt Market.

    Those little bunnies are adorable! Whenever my brothers and I got into trouble as children, we would pose this way to make our mom laugh. Then our punishment wasn’t quite as harsh as it probably should have been!ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - Oh my goodness Anne, you sound so upbeat and refreshed. Love the haircut as well and love love the bunnies. I have been patiently waiting for a peek at Kaari Meng’s line..her first I think. It is absolutely wonderful, but not in the shops until fall. Okay a bit more patience.Thanks for all of your newsy news..LouiseReplyCancel

  • mimi'sdarlins - Hi, Anne! Glad you’re feeling better. It took me five days to get back to our time zone once when we got home from England! In bed by 7:00, waking at 3:00AM and putting the coffee on :-) Then my husband would smell it and join me!
    The French General fabs are FAB! And the bunnies, to die for! Love that haircut too…..but you know, now you’re probably going to start receiving earrings in the mail…..maybe bunny ones!!ReplyCancel

  • Kernowquilter - Thanks so much for your blogs, it’s easy to imagine being there. I’ve finally done the antennae on the butterfly on this month’s block so can go and plant the pots for the terrace. Don’t like the new fabrics (much!) lol. Unfortunately the Moda rep hasn’t been to my supplier in Cornwall since before Christmas so we’re short of all their new fabrics. Still, may be able to find is somewhere.
    Loved the May block and am looking forward to next month.

  • Lori - The fabric are just lovely, but those bunnies are *too* much!!!ReplyCancel

  • Loraine - Hi Anne,

    It was such a thrill to meet you at market. You are such a doll.
    I’m in love with “French General”. I’m highly anticipating it arriving. It looks so wonderful in your silverware drawer. “Simple Abundance” is great too. Also one of my favorites from market.
    I hope you recover from your “time warp”. I felt the same way all week. The one good thing, is that I was able to get up so early I was getting a lot done before my family woke up!
    Have a great weekend.ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - hate the hair cut. You’ll spend more money trying to keep it look like that since hair grows about 1/2″ per month it only will look good for about 2 weeks after each cut. Men hate short hair. I gave the picture to my husband to take to his barber for a good hair cut for a man. Love the bunny stuffReplyCancel

  • Mary's Cottage Quilts - Anne, I have so LOVED reading your blog recently – not that I ever don’t enjoy it but the market blogs kept me very informed and in stitches!
    Thanks for letting me share market with you!
    Now… just got to get my hands on that new french general fabric… I AM DYING!! It looks just divine! Thanks again!
    Can’t wait to see the new haircut either :)

  • Camille - Anne, I’m blushing… you are too sweet! Glad we got to chat, you’ll have to keep me posted on all things fabric. ;-) Deal?ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - The PERFECT haircut on a woman is the one she DOESN'T get! lol The wedge cut is an attractive look for SHORT hair, but compared to touchin' the tush hair, c'mon! It doesn't rate, Gals! RonReplyCancel
