no fat pigs at market…

Come out of the hotel and turn right…

I got it! And less than 5 minutes later the Convention Center was just across the road from me. Modern Westin on one side.

DSC08169 The goal straight ahead!

DSC08170 My trusty Anna Griffin purchase (bought at a remarkable discount) from the night before right behind me, time for the market floor…

I started by wandering up and down the aisles. I spied this display at Coats.

DSC08171 Somebody made a wonderful job of photographing my clamshell pillow.

Book signings abounded. Here Faith and Lee are ready for theirs, fans waiting for them to get started.

DSC08174 I found my roomie, Maggie, working hard in the Quiltwoman.com booth surround by her template free kaleidoscope quilts.

DSC08175 The girls from Art Gallery Fabrics had told me about their yo-yo display in their booth.

DSC08180 Lots of fabulous yo-yos!!

I lined up for a book from Cotton and Steel and got a pic with the lovely ladies!

DSC08182 Dinner with Maggie’s friends and back to the room, tired but happy!

Here’s some of what I had in my bag by the end of the day…

I don’t like to pick favorites but I think my favorite book of the day ( I already Have Faith’s!!) has to be Carolyn Freidlander‘s  Savor Each Stitch from Lucky Spool Media. It is very beautiful and full of inspiration. I’m looking forward to sitting down in a quiet moment and taking it all in.

Back to the market floor today. I wonder what delights today will bring?
