Anderson Area Quilt Show . . . and my first booth . . . . .

My first show as a vendor was this past weekend in a cute little town called Williamston, South Carolina.  It is just outside of Anderson in the Upstate.  It was their first show and the members brought every quilt they could get their hands on.  All 250 of them !!! Teresa at Stitchin' Friends came by the booth with her hubby.  I just went to her blog and she has my picture on hers with a lot more pictures of the quilt show.

Here is a few pictures of my booth . . . . .

Not real big yet but it's a start!

Since I can't show you all 250 items, I'll show you the wool ones.  Both made by another Kathy that does just wonderful work! Don't forget to go by Teresa's blog to see more . . . .

Just beautiful, right?

My next show is the QSC retreat the first weekend in October where I am teaching two classes, one of which is full!

I couldn't participate in Kelly's Christmas party yesterday but I may have two of my three challenges done by the end of the month on Tuesday.  Hope to post them by then!

Aaahhh - the smell of wet wool . . . . .

School is back in session today for Dear Hubby, the Wild One and Computer Geek.  Now I can get back to dying wool.  None of them like the smell of the wool and citric acid while I am dying and I can't blame them.  It reminds me a lot of the smell of wet dog!

I have already finished 4 batches this morning with many more to go so I can add to this . . . . .

I have a long way to go.  My first show as a vendor is next weekend.  It will be held at the First Baptist Church in Williamston, South Carolina near Anderson and Clemson just west of Greenville.  It is sponsored by the Electric City Quilters Guild and the Prickly Fingers Quilters Guild.  This is their first show together and should be wonderful!

So if you are in the Upstate of South Carolina August 27th or 28th, stop by and visit the show.  Click on either of the links above for more information.
