Wow! Wow! and WOW!

Big smiles and waves to all of you!! You guys are blowing me away! We have over 400 entries in our festival already - amazing!! Thank you so much for your kind words in the comments - they have kept me going :) And I have yet to even started looking through your links - I will eventually though!

Did I tell you, I don't think I did! My blog, and our festival actually went to Market! Sharon Dismore of Sew Fun Computing had a lecture focused on blogging to self-promote. Lots of designers are doing it and she ran across this little, happy spot. Fun, fun!

I actually took a little time for the family today - and you didn't even miss me. Just a few things to fix up when I returned. And so this evening, Joe and I are going to a wedding reception for a friend that was married last month, sans kids!

Here's a quick pic of a little catch up laundry I got to yesterday finally - I had ignored it all week!
There's another 4 loads in process today - it seems to multiply!

I hope you have a good evening and keep enjoying the show ~
Amy

I'm so happy that you have taken the time to organize this. I loved it in spring, and this one is even better. Thanks for all your hard work and enjoy the wedding reception sans kids.

I feel ya on the laundry. Adding one more body to our home seems to have doubled the laundry load. How is that even possible?
Laundry is my arch-nemisis...

Cindy said...

Oh, go have fun tonight. Trust me, the laundry will be there tomorrow. You can count on it...LOL

Laura said...

Thanks a lot for this great idea, It must be a gigantic work if I'm a bit (@_@)dizzy just watching all those quilts, but it has been great being able to peek in other´s minds and hearts. Thanks again for make it easier. (~_^)

Ug...... I HATE laundry! I have to say that I am spoiled, my husband does all of the laundry and ironing!

That is so exciting that all of our quilts got to market. You have done a wonderful job getting this organized and your poor family. Glad you got some things caught up. I have been sifting through the blogs every time I get on but wow, there sure are a lot of them to get to. The responses are wondeful and it is fun to see all the talented people that are in blogland. Thanks again Amy and I hope you have fun tonight.

Allie said...

Amy this is so much fun - except I'm finding WAY too many blogs to follow, again, lol - I wish someone would pay me to read blogs! Congrats on the mention at market!

I'm so impressed that you do this, so much work for you, and so much fun for us! I'm glad you got recognition at Market, you certainly deserve it! It's my first Blogger's Festival, and I'm blown away with all the amazing quilts and all the wonderful comments people are leaving.

Amber said...

I did the same thing today - fold laundry :-)
Then hubby and I saw "Bright Star" - gorgeous movie!

Tipper said...

Amy-congrats on your huge success-you so deserve it : )

You started a pretty cool new thing with this quilt festival, especially timing it with the big fabric Market. I love hearing that people at the Market recognized your festival. Thank you SO much for being our organizer!!!

I just hate it when I miss a week of laundry, and we have just two people in our house! Bet it feels good getting caught up on that chore.

Kathy said...

I've been having a great time checking out all the quilts and the stories people added to the blog. Thank you for making this all work out so well.

Shawn said...

Hi Amy, Glad you got to catch up a little, thanks for making it so easy to see which blogs we have visited on the list, you're the best!!!

Jessica said...

I can't even tell you how much I am enjoying your quilt festival. I want to quit studying and quilt all afternoon (well, I might actually...). How fun about your blog making it to Market.

Marie said...

Amy Thanks so much for the wonderful Festival I just entered my quilt and I am from Mexico. You have no idea the oportunity you give us with organizing all this
Thanks.

This is fantastic. I just signed on today (10/11/09) and already have had 44 visitors to my blog. There are so many sites to visit and so many wonderful quilts, it's going to take me a month or more to see everything. And another month or two to go back and see what else is there. Thanks so much for doing this. It's wonderful.

I love laundry day (mostly just that it's finished and not the laundry part of it :)

Thanks for hosting this festival! It must be a ridiculous amount of work!
