Yes, we did arrive yesterday without any problems. We couldn’t unload the trailer at the show site until 5:30, so we spent the day enjoying some of the many culinary treats that are only available in California – Pinkberry and In-n-Out Burger. We feasted and spent the rest of time teasing Robin, our California girl, with pictures of the places we’d been. Yes, we are mean.
Craziest thing – as we drove through the windmill farms in Palm Springs, we noticed the windmills were not spinning – very odd. We did finally see 1 small section that was active, so there is electricity available again. No matter how many times I see these windmills, I am awed and amazed by them. They are like gentle giants. Here’s a picture, but I don’t think it shows how impressive they are.
We headed to the Convention Center at 5:30 and we had the trailer unloaded and in our booth by 7:00. This made set up today so much easier. We left Tuesday night hoping the quilt fairies would set up the booth for us, but alas when we arrived this morning the booth still looked like this:
Best news – the booth is done. I don’t know how, but Paula managed to get 29 quilts hung or draped in our 10×20 space. It’s times like this we think we should consider smaller quilts. but then we remember how easy it is to snuggle under our quilts and we forget the whole small quilt idea.
We did get a chance to walk around and see some of the other vendors that are here and it looks like it’s going to be a great show. The booths look beautiful and people are going to have a great time shopping. We hope that many of you will have the chance to get the show. If you do, please be sure you stop by and say hello and who knows you just might find something that you just can’t live without. We love the chance to meet our great customers. We’re in booth 1307, so let the show begin.
