(Oops. this post has been sitting in my drafts since the day after the previous post- consider the ball well and truly dropped at this end folks. )
Once again I apologise for the lack of links. Me and the ipad and the blogsy do not agree on the need for links in blog posts apparently.

When you take away all the stress and the ego and the business, quiltmarket is really a giant get-together. I hugged everyone willing to be hugged and had a ball. I am missing so many photos that I guess were taken with other people's phones but I want to remember the peopley bits of market so forgive me this bit of indulgence.
Dan and Shari from @doohikeydesigns ( caring wonderful people ) and Clare from Clares Place who is also every colour of wonderful, and she makes me laugh.
My new frind Ginger with her namesake. Ever meet someone that you just click with in about ten seconds? We have plans this chick and I.
A quick selfie before the line-dancing began - with @jaybirdquilts and @cotton_factory. Truly a night to remember. I have since decided against being a professional line-dancer when I grow up.
@emmajeanjansen who looks like she has been pick-pocketed ( she wasn't) and @jedicraftgirl. Yeah we totally did that polite greeting thing with our real names and then used our Instagram names and were all "I know you !!! I know Mufasa !!!
I am sad that I missed photos with some really good friends but a quick trawl through social media tells me we met, we chatted and we hugged. I know I say it all the time but this giant world wide craft group we all belong to is amazing !

There is no possible way to keep up with myself at the moment. I am days away from Quiltmarket and yet to post about.
I know you would have already seen great quilt market wrap-ups around the interwebs so this is just a little bit of my stuff for now. This Sew Together bag was made for me by my friend Katharine (@katharine_von_bibra on IG). It is the cutest most perfectly executed bag ever!!! In the background is the wonderful quilt made by Rita of Red Pepper Quilts.
There was very late night alcohol induced pushbike riding that involved stationary pushbikes and loud singing of 'Let's get Physical' and loads of sheanigans and merry-making.
I could say most stories involving me at market are greatly exaggerated.... But none of you would beleieve me if I did.

It is Wednesday early morning and I am almost feeling human. I will crash and burn at about 3pm but then feel great again at midnight.
Yesterday we had a little wander and visited Walmart ( yes !!! Just like I imagined) and caught some trains and visited a wonderful colourful friend and finally met her daughter. It was a fantastic day.
Today we head off to Ikea to buy furniture and cushion inserts and dress forms and all the bits and bobs for the booth and begin setup. We will lay the floor and hang the curtain walls.... The craziness begins.
(The title of this blogpost refers to the descent into Utah in a very small plane, that had me grasping the sick bag and breathing deeply . We made it to the ground sans vomit but it was ten long minutes my friends. )
