A New Adventure...

I am writing this blog with a full heart this morning.  Life is an amazing adventure and the last few months have been just that.  I have been working really hard to make one of my dreams and a huge goal come true.  That was designing patterns and hand embroidery projects under the Olive Grace Studio name. Well, I proved to myself just that.  I DID IT! I took the leap of faith and vended in Pittsburgh, PA at International Quilt Market.  I still cannot believe it!  I kept this to myself not many people knew that I was taking this huge step.  Believe me it is huge.  I had to prove to myself that I could do it before I announced it I guess. My family and close friends have been cheering my on along the way and without them I could have never done it.  Below you will see some of the pictures that I captured.  Like, mom having to sit in the back seat while we set off to go to the convention center because we had so much stuff as you can see by the luggage cart.   Josh was a patient trooper from being the heavy lifting guy to being in charge of the booth while I did some buying for the quilt shop.  I met new friends, I made industry contacts and I plan on working harder for Fall Quilt Market in Houston!  Now to ship out the patterns that I sold and start working hard again  on design and sewing more projects... until next time... I know sooner that later right! I guess I need to change the header on this blog too!  Im not just a quilt shop owner I am a designer... always have been just never thought I would say that again...
