Hello Columbus

The view from the airplane window, somewhere between Newark and Columbus. Got up at 5:30 for this view. Landed around noon and spent the rest of the day meeting & greeting. Today was setup day for the vendors: Judy Robertson is here with her fabrics, St. Theresa's Textile Trove is here; Friends Fabric Art is here with tons of books and lots of gorgeous paints, and Helene is here with her fabulous hand-dyes. Heaven. There are a few more vendors, but I am too tired to remember offhand who they are. I spent time catching up with Helene - and giving the cookies to Bob, who will use them as energy bars so he can keep up with all the customers. Truly a feast for the eyes - and this is only the tip of the iceberg. Below, shirts that Helene has dyed just like her fabric, only to wear. Yummy! Below, a happy camper. Do you think he's smiling because the chocolate chip cookies I brought to him are so good? Goodnight Bob. Goodnight everybody. Tomorrow, alarm goes off at 6:30 and it's a class day.
