Celebrity Sighting

What would the International Quilt Market be without a few celebrities?

The first celebrities that we met were Melly and Me ! We were sitting on board the hotel shuttle bus waiting to go to Sample Spree, when Rosalie climbed aboard the bus. I was so excited and I screamed "It's Rosie!" Poor Rosalie was so startled that I think that I might have given her a heartattack! We started chatting with them and that was the beginning of our friendship with our new Australian friends!

This is a photo of Melly & Me's booth at Quilt Market. I think that they did a great job considering the fact that they had to carry their stuff all the way from Australia! Plus they put everything together with string and safety pins! Way to go girls!
If you want to see some really cute stuff, check out their blogs! They have patterns for bags, quilts, and some of the cutest animals that you have ever seen!
The next celebrity sighting was another Aussie! We have both been a big fan of Lynnette Anderson and we were so thrilled when we got to meet her in person!

Lynette is such an inspring person! She took the time to really talk to us, show is her new patterns, and we even got a sneak peek at her upcoming fabric line! It is so cute and when you see it you will immediately recognize that it is her work. I know what I will be adding to my fabric stash in the future!
BTW, Lynette has a wonderful free stitchery BOM on her blog. There is still plenty of time to join in on the fun! While you are looking at the Noah's Ark stitchery, check out her great patterns and awesome handmade wooden buttons!

This is a final shot of us with downtown Houston in the background. Sorry for the darkness but its another one of our self portraits!

So long Houston and the International Quilt Market!

Until Next Time.....Happy Quilting!
