I spent 5 days at the Santa Clara convention centerat Pacific International Quilt Festival (PIQF). It is great to see "friends" you only know from doing a certain event year after year. Like old friends but we only know "this much" about each other. Not a lot of expectation but quick catch ups and hugs good bye.
From those vendors I spoke with, sales were good. Better than anticipated. Maybe not better than previous years but better than a "poke in the eye", as a good friend would say. Got home Sunday evening and am preparing for Artistic License Fair - in Costa Mesa Friday and Saturday. It is a bit of shifting mind sets. I got my booth tables and props out today, laid it out in the drive way and I think I am under control. Or as much control as a person really has.
This is one of my favorite images from 09. It is entitled - bird in a tree with leaves looking for peace. It is part of a collection of collages I sent to New Zealand for a collage exchange. I will have several of it's brothers and sisters with me this week end at Artistic License.
