Silence inactivity.

Sorry for not including you in the hustle and bustle.  Those of you who blog know how the blog can sort of overtake your life.  (or maybe it’s just me!)  You’re constantly thinking of the blog, you take weird pictures of diet coke, you write and rewrite posts and throughout the day you mumble “blog about this”  and the post starts writing itself in your head.  I don’t know that my blogging silence was an intentional step in  regaining some normalcy in my life, but it feels kinda nice to know that life has gone on for you and me both even in my silence.  Now to catch you up is a near impossibility…so it’ll just be a couple of highlights.

Artisan’s Cafe:

Craft Show Table

This was my first year doing a craft show as Above All Fabric.  It was a ton of fun!  (I brought the anti-wrinkle spray – clearly I forgot to use it.  Geesh!  I didn’t realize I was such a wrinkled mess!)  I had one table (not enough room) to display samples, fat quarters, charm packs, ribbons, patterns…and kits.

KITS!!!!  I’ll blog more about kits soon – and you can keep your eye on my website for a new section (aptly named) in the next couple of days.

At the show, I had great company!  My friend Ariel helped man the booth.  She also helped in the preparations the whole week before hand.  🙂    I got to chat with my friend, Woolies who was “next door” to me.  She’s always a riot!  It was also fun to meet Gigi.  Those of you who are fans of Sandi Henderson will recognize the Pinks and Needles pin toppers.  Such a joy!  (A crafting night is in the works – so stay tuned for that fun information.)  Of course, this is not a comprehensive list – and so maybe I should have left it out….know that I enjoyed my time with all of you!  (and Lisa, I am loving my bag!)

Thanksgiving:  Where do I even begin?  It was a great holiday with great food, family and friends. And I successfully managed to take a few days off.  That is an accomplishment and something for which to be thankful!  (My gut instinct tells me many of you can relate!)  Now we’re out of pie – almost out of turkey, and I have to get back to the daily routine…and back to blogging!

Silent no more!

    I found you through my neighbor who bought your ball pillow pattern at the craft fair (she was selling baby blankets, burp rags, etc.). BTW, she went home and made it the next day and it is too cute. Your website is great and fabrics are to drool over! Can’t wait for the unveiling of your new site.

    Ooooo – you have the pretty ribbon we saw at market! Cute booth – I’m glad it went well! Silence doesn’t equal inactivity around here, either, but sometimes there just isn’t a lot to blog about…

    So did you sell lots of patterns and kits at the craft fair? Did you give out cards with your website so they can order fabric? Hope it was worth all the time and effort.
    The apple pie looks yummy!
    Love you all,

    That’s so funny..I know exactly what you mean by blogging in your head and it just taking over. Your table looked great.. so much color I didn’t see the wrinkles until you pointed them out. I’m glad the fair was a success & I’m glad I wasn’t there because I would have spent way too much money.
