I'm going to Market.


No, not on my bike. 
And, not to the little farmer's market down the road. 

This spring, I'm going to get in my little Honda CRV and drive to the
Salt Palace Convention Center
{just 45 minutes away from my house!}
for the 2011 International Quilt Market.
It's going to be in my neck of the woods this year,
so I just had to jump on this opportunity.

Me.
Going to have a booth.
I've never even been!
I really can't believe it!


{So, be prepared to watch me FREAK OUT over the next few months!  I'm really excited.  And in denial.  And freaking out.  And scared.  And freaking out.  And, I'm really excited.}
