Down on the Lakadaisies Farm Blog # 24

They say time flies when you are having fun...I must be having the time of my life. We just finished up the Country Living Fair in Austin, Texas. It was a great show for us, a few kinks to work out for Country Living, but that happens. Something always goes wrong. Especially on the first show. Vendors learn to go with the flow...even when the flow blows your booth over....yepper, it happened to us. Thank goodness our neighbors were there to help and we were able to prop it up before the show got under way...Fun times.....

We met a lot of nice people, met up with old friends and missed some friends that we lost. Barb from Hooked on Rugs passed away last year. She was a fixture at the Country Living Fairs as well as Quilt Market and Festival. She will be truly missed . We leave for Spring Quilt Market next week and I know that all of the rest of her friends from the quilting world will miss her as well.

We will spend a day at the Rabbit’s Lair in Rogers, Arkansas on our way to Quilt Market. We will be there all day on Tuesday the 16th of May. I am not exactly sure what they have in mind so check their website or call 479 636 3385.

It will be good to see Mary Elizabeth and see what she has new. She has the best supply of wool that I have seen in a shop and it is very hard to resist. I have a couple of new redwork designs I will be bringing, so you can see them in person. We have been so busy we haven’t had a chance to put them on the website yet....

It will be a busy summer for us. June will find us at the NQA show in Columbus, Ohio and The Common Threads Quilt Show in Wichita, Kansas . John said maybe to Long Beach, California in July...and for sure to Colorado in Sept and Iowa in October....More about those when I know..

Well....I have lots of fun to go before I leave next week, so as always..........enjoy life
