APB or "This Little Piggy Goes To Market"


This little piggy is going to market - I was writing up a little ditty for my blog and what do I find this morning while drinking my tea?  Kim of Kim's Big Quilting Adventure, surprised me so much that I just about drenched my keyboard with tea.  Since she wrote about it I am scratching my entry and spending my time plotting how to kill her.  My comment back to her this morning was, "I AM GOING TO HAVE TO KILL YOU!"
"FRIDAY, MAY 14, 2010



APB!

Alert! Be on the lookout for a pair of suspicious looking characters! Two of the women in the photos below are expected to flee California jurisdiction next week. They are believed to be traveling to Minnesota where they have contacts--quilting contacts, that is! And I'm darn jealous.


That's Lindy, the owner of Bearpaws & Hollyhocks. Isn't she cute? This photo was taken at the time of the last class I taught, which just happened to be on her birthday. Yeah, she doesn't always wear the tiara--it was a special day. Anyway, Lindy's heading off to Quilt Market next week and Gran gets to go with her. That's Gran on the left in the photo below, with our friend Eileen of My Quilting Porch.


If it wasn't for all the extra luggage charges these days, I'd stow away in their luggage. I know they're going to have a wonderful time while I sit here in Sacramento, left behind to read the blogs of all the quilt people who are sharing that heady Minnesota air and having a wonderful time right along with them. So sad. Of course, if I look long and hard enough, I just might find them. After all, last year I spotted Lindy on someone's blog, wandering through the Bunny Hill booth:


(That blonde woman on the far right is Lindy.)


If YOU'RE going to Quilt Market, be on the lookout for these two, and if you see them, please take a photo and send it to me, especially if you catch them doing anything of a compromising nature. Or at least say "Hi" and tell them it wasn't very nice of them to leave me at home, crying in my keyboard. In fact, now that I think about it, I think we need to have a game of "Where's Lindy and Gran?" Kind of like "Where's Waldo" but different. If you go to market and are able to spot them there, email me a photo or tell me when you saw them, where they were, and what they were doing. Points will be given for each spotting and there may well be a prize for the most spottings. Hey, I gotta have SOME fun, don't I?!"
With friends like Kim, 
                          who needs enemies!!!?!

Guess she's not so happy that you are leaving her behind. You'll be having all that fun and she'll be stuck in the sweat shop probably causing all kinds of trouble.........you best be very careful. I'm just saying....you never know.

At least I didn't go with the "piggy/market" analogy! LOL! Well, I guess there's still time . . . .

Have a terrific time at quilt market, Gran, but remember that is important not to " hog " all the great things you find there VBG. I know you will share all your wonderful finds- you are one generous lady- I just had to tease you a bit...
It will be very fun I am sure- Kim and Pam will be missing you - You three do have so much fun together..
Happy quilt market.
You will be happy to know that it was a beautiful sunny day here in Alberta. Had lunch at the Faculty Club at the University ( my sister in law is a professor there) We sat out on the deck and enjoyed the sunshine.
Hugs,
Anna
