Quilt Market Redux

We are finally home from Quilt Market 2010
It was an amazing, awesome, fun filled adventure!
Unfortunately, I am reporting it through the eyes of phone's camera because I never had time to take real pictures.
Here we go!

My knees at the SLC airport where we spent the afternoon after our flight was cancelled and we were moved to another flight 3 hours later.  BORING!

See that darling bag in the front of the picture?  That is the awesome bag that my friend
Stephanie Secada made just for me to take to market.  It went everywhere with me, and we got tons of compliments!  Thank you Sweet Stephanie.

This is a picture of the Scary Clown.  I couldn't get a picture of his face because I didn't want him to murder me.  He was everywhere!  YIKES!
This is a picture of him inside the 2 story Target.  2 STORY!  I love Target!

Our Booth!  I wish we had a real pic of it, because it was very much cuter than the phone can show you...

You'll never guess who's shoes these are...
They belong to THE Alex Anderson!
Cute!  Just like Alex.  She is so very kind too.

These are the Shoes that I wore the first day of market.
4 1/2" heels.  Cute, but not the most comfortable.
There was MUCH swelling that night.

One night, while walking back to the hotel, trying to avoid Murder Clown, we saw the above.
If you look closely you can see that it is a Bar...driving down the street...and it is pedal powered.
It is a Pedal Bar.
We don't have those in Utah.

Saturday afternoon, Lizzy House threw a Cake party in honor of her Mother's new book.
There was cake!
It was Fantastic!  I ate cake with cool people!
The princess cake was the favorite!

Jenny was about to die of excitement!

This is a picture of my twin sister, Melissa Avarinos, at her talk and book signing.  She is a great speaker, and one of the most amazing people that you'll ever meet.  Felt like I had known her forever.

SEE!  I told you we were twins!  Amazing that it took us this long to find each other!
By the way, this photo was taking by the equally AWESOME Beth Dunn!

I met so many friends that I have known on Twitter for months.  The cool thing about it was that we really were already friends!
I will blog about it again when Jenny sends me her pictures,
or when I find other pics I can steal!

Love, Jana
