The Aftermath

For the past 30 days I have had 3 events where I was either teaching or presenting my trunk show. Which means I was traveling, out of state, in and across the state. There is a lot of prep work that is involved, but what about after I arrive back home? The Aftermath…this is what happens. Instead of everything being taken back to my sewing room/office, everything lands in my dining room. I can’t figure out why that happens, but it does every time! And you know what? I don’t like seeing my dining room a mess! Yet, I can walk right by it! LOL Go figure! Here are some pictures of what it all looks like:

I align the floor with the bins to begin my inventory of the products that were not sold.

Chairs work great in holding layer cakes! Do you know how heavy fabric is?

Fabrics and patterns oh my!

I use all flat surfaces to spread out on.

My personal set of longarm rulers, another handy purchase from Harbor Freight: The case! It looks so official, lol

See the large open cabinet space behind all these suitcases? This is where I will put all of my quilts from my trunk show. And you know what? When I was preparing for my trunk show, I realized I had left two quilts at Decorative Stitch 🙁 I teach classes there. If you counted the number of suitcases, you should see 5

And yes, that is my truck. My husband calls it the Quilt mobile! I thought the picture was very appropriate. I took the picture in Bay City. Cheri Terry was with me. I had never been in the thumb area of Michigan. I want to go back so I can see more.

On a slightly different note, I am going to try to clean a little bit of my mess up. I’m not suppose to though. I’m supposed to be resting…I have a kidney infection that came from that ever famous wonderful infection that women get (men too, but mostly women).  I never had any signs or symptoms till this past weekend when I ended up on the couch for 3 days with a fever, man was I in pain! I thought I had the flu! I’m actually happy I don’t have the flu. I am on antibiotics and will feel better really soon! Time to go lay on the couch and rest a bit.

Happy Quilting everyone!
