This was a week of many good byes and the start of new beginnings. My last day at Target was on Wednesday. I will miss all of my friends very much, but already feel so much less stress. I wont go into details and bore you, but lets just say, as frustrating as it is to call a call center, just know its not as easy of a job. :) I have also been a member of Make Mine Pink for 6 years now and due to some health issues it will be closing down for a while. I know this was an incredibly hard decision for Joyce to make, I will miss everyone so much. But her health and healing from her surgery is the most important thing to all of us. But its weird, I have been going to Make Mine Pink everyday for years and these ladies have become very good friends, even as far as my friend Caroline in England. I know we will stay in touch and Joyce will be back stronger and better than ever. :) I have spent the weekend spring cleaning and getting ready to start a new life Monday!!! I am working temporarily at a CPA office and love it. Awesome people and a great place to work. I will be now be spending all of my extra hours getting my samples ready to show at a local quilt shop to teach. I also hope to be spending some more time at Eden Garden House.

Briar Patch Marketplace is a show that is held all over the Phoenix area several times a year. This is such an awesome show and has some of the best vendors and artist. Jeannie has been holding this show for over 20 years and has a huge following. This last weekend we were out in Chandler at Hamilton High School. There are still a few shows on the spring calendar and they will be going back to Prescott in July (July 21 and 22). This is a great place to visit in AZ in the summer. It would be a great weekend trip to plan. I really hope to be doing this show!
This is my sweet friend Phyllis, her work is just gorgeous and she is very talented. She is know for using vintage chenille bedspreads and created adorable childrens items such as quilts, bibs, teddys, and lots of items for grown up girls too!
I thought I would share a few pictures from this weekend. These are pictures from Vera and Jeannie, the show coordinator. Vera does an amazing job of merchandising.
AND... last but not least, here is a couple photos of my space:)

This is a few of my new projects I have been working on. I have been getting so much done and it has been so much fun. I have been having so much fun with the paper shoes and I tried something new for a pillow. I drew the bike on the fabric and then machine stitched it. Embellished with roses and handmade lace flowers and leaves.
I hope you have a great spring~ish weekend! Gail:)
