I just had a call from my brother and he has an extra pig to send to market, so I told him yes, I'm in if no one else wants it. It will go in to be butchered sometime late in the month, so I need to do some reducing in the freezer department...I need to do that anyway, pig or no pig.
But, that made me think of the Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme:
"To Market, To Market, to buy a Fat Pig".
Now, the Fat Pig is taken care of, and I'm singing and dancing around, 'cause, wait for it....
I get to go "To Market, To Market!!!"
No, not the butcher shop, but Texas!!!
Yep, I'm off to Houston for a few days. For the Quilt Market! To Market - can't believe how excited I am. I was going to try to work in this post about "leavin', on a jet plane", but that was too slow. I like the "To Market, To Market!!! It goes better with my singing and dancing around!
Hopefully I'll have some pics and new stuff to show when I get back. *still singing and dancing around*
I really want to see in person that new line by French General - Rouenneries. I keep seeing sneak peeks of it in different designs by different designers. Check out Lynette Andersons' blog, she even had some to work with in Austrailia and has a new pattern to go with-beautiful! And Lecien Company has a new Cosmo thread that is two strand and would be great for redwork, I think. And I have seen quite a few new patterns by different folks that look very promising.
Hopefully, I won't see a fat pig at market as it really is the wrong type of "market" for THAT and, already have one of those coming!
OH.... almost forgot, catering another home Ohio State tailgate party before I leave:
I guess I just have the extra time, ha ha!
See that stamp on that Wear-Ever pan in the left pic?
Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig! *still dancing*
Life is Good!
