So much to say, so little time . . . . .

Okay, so I didn't get back to posting pictures of the Charleston show.  I didn't tell you about the Charlotte show at all.  I didn't even take pictures or see the quilts at the Charlotte show!

Charleston was a fantastic show all the way around (except for a little incident of it pouring rain while we packed up Saturday night but the sales made up for it).  

Here is my favorite quilt in the show . . . . . see all the pretty ribbons?

Charleston was so good that I spent the entire next week trying desperately to replace everything I sold for the next weekend in Charlotte.  Well, I did manage to do that and a good thing I did.  Charlotte was just as good! 

So now I am back at it, trying desperately to replace what I sold in Charlotte because I am headed to Forsyth County, North Carolina tomorrow afternoon! 

This is a special show because Carrie P. is a member of this guild!  Here is a link to their website so you can get all the information about the show.  Forsyth County is near/contains/is within spitting distance of Winston-Salem, North Carolina.  It is home to so many things.  One of my favorite places to visit in W-S is Old Salem Village.

Look at a picture of their raffle quilt ..... just stunning!

A note about my website .....

The Married One said she has been embarrassed long enough by it.  (Aren't kids grand?!)  She is in retail AND knows how to shop in person and on the internet.  She has decided to overhaul my website for me (Thank you, thank you, thank you).  We are shooting for an April 15th re-launch.  She has also offered to send out my email newsletters so maybe they will be in your inbox at least once a month like I had planned!

Blessings, Cathi

Those pretty ribbons are blocking my view of some of the pretty applique and quilting *lol* What a gorgeous quilt!
Hope you have a great show again this weekend.

Great! I'm so glad you did well at the show. I hope you do just as well at this next show. Exciting news to have an overhaul on your website!

The winning quilt is gorgeous. Making one of those blocks would have been enough for me. The maker did four of them. A deserving winner for sure.
Wow, business is good for you. You may need a helper if it continues.

Carrie P. said...

Oh My!! that quilt is stunning. Maybe one day I can make one like that.
Thanks for the plug for our quilt show.
Can't wait to see what you daughter does.
So glad you are doing so well in your business.

Cathi, that is awesome!! I know you've worked your tail off for these shows and now you get to reap the benefits of your labor, that is great! Only a couple more weeks to go and you can take a breather, lol. Your daughter cracked me up, glad you are gonna get some help with the website and email.

So happy for you, way to go girl!

I'm so glad you had good shows, even if it means you are kept really busy inbetween times replenishing stock.

I'll see you at the show, it's going to be terrific!

That quilt is stunning!! I was in Charlotte last weekend (from Florida) and had plans to come but ran out of time. So glad it was good.
