Pittsburgh, Here I Come :)

I am finally all packed.  It only took the whole day ;)  And I know, it doesn't really take a whole day to pack, but when you add it doing the laundry before you leave for 4 days, and making sure there is food in the house, and cleaning the bathrooms, and a million other little things, it takes the whole day :)

But I am feeling good.  My bags all packed, with plenty of room for some sample spree goodies once I drop off that lovely quilt on top ;)  Barbara has another quilt on the top of her bag that will be dropped off as well.  More on both of those little secret projects when I get back ;)


And, I even managed to check this little tidbit off the list today ;)  I finished my camera strap.  I went with my favorite Joel Purple so it would match my favorite Purple Aviary bag ;)   I used a bits and pieces from about 5 different tutorials and then changed a few things around for my own liking.  I am really happy with how it all turned out except that I made it the same length as my original camera strap, and that is way to short.  So I already have plans to make another the same but just longer,  but it will work for this trip, so it's all good;)


Oh goodness, I am so very excited!!!  This will be my third market and I can't wait :)  Luckily, I don't have to wait to much longer because we leave at 2:30 AM.  I am counting on the excitement superseding the tiredness ;)  I will be sure to take lots of pictures and share the good times when I get back. I might try a post or two or maybe some instagramming while I am there ;)   That is if I don't get so caught up with everything around me that I forget to take pictures ;)  I will try my best :)  

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting rest of the week and weekend :)
