Quilt Market #15, more booths!

Well I promised I would be complete my Quilt Market Houston 2012 coverage in November, but surprise!  There is still more.  Probably because I took a bit of break to finish unpacking the new studio (excited!!) In a week or so, we should get the sewing table and workbench in and then it will feel really complete.  The painting/drawing area is all set and its wonderful…More pics to come on that here and at a laughing gate.

In the meantime, here are more Quilt Market booth pics. There are links to websites if you click on the image. Enjoy!
