Quilt Market

PhotobucketI had a blast putting this booth together. They get better every market. Things are so crazy since I've been home. The kids, husband, dog, pattern edits (hoping to print next week)! etc. This is so scary for me. Kati Cupcake is moving up in the world with full color booklets for all our new children's clothing patterns and bag patterns. It is an exciting new venture! I can't wait to here how you like them. We had such a great time at market. I will be posting more soon! I promise.

We Made It!

We made it home, I'm a little tired, but we made it. I will be down loading pictures today or tomorrow! Thanks for all the prayers, it worked! It was so scary, our flight home after we were all settled was very nice!

United Air Lines is Trying To Kill Us!

This has been the most terrible travel day I've ever experienced. Melda and I have seriously been at this airport for 12 hours! I've never been this intimate with an airport before in my life! Yikes that is scary! Somehow we got bumped from 4th & 5th on the stand by to 9th and 10th because we weren't a member of their special fly miles club! The flight was delayed. I was huddled in a ball over in the corner, because I ate bad food from the taco joint (in the airport) We were so excited when they called our name. We got on the flight and the captain came on the loud speaker and announced that we needed to re board another plane because the hydraulics were leaking oil. Then........yes it gets better.....or worse I guess it depends if you are on the plane or reading the good story! But the plane filled up with smoke. Melda said " I'm getting off!" I was right behind her until the attendant said everything is under control sit down. (stay calm)! We both said yeah right?! A second later she's yelling everyone calmly get off the plane. Leave your belonging and get of the plane. Calmly....hurry hurry, hurry, get off now, get off now! Put your personal belongings down and get off! So we did (except our phones of course)! Well we are sitting here blogging what time is it? Our flight is scheduled for 12:30. If we don't make it out alive, we want to tell you all we love you and it's been great! x0x0 (sorry Mark it's pertinent!)

AKA The Freak Show is on The Road!

Melda (my side kick) and I are sitting in the Denver airport, just hanging out! Our flight got canceled! (that bites) We have been here four hours (Melda says we've been here longer but we haven't) anyway we are hoping to get on a return flight to Idaho Falls tonight on stand by tickets (number 4 and 5) at 9:20 p.m. otherwise the airport terminal will be home sweet home until tomorrow at 3:00 p.m. I've seriously never had this happen before. The wind is blowing 30 mph with 50 mph gusts. Our flight here was pretty bumpy! Melda and I are so silly when we travel. I'm pretty sure if either of our husbands flew with us together they would not claim us! We are constantly stumbling over our suite cases and running into each other aka (The Freak Show) It begins the moment we leave the house and doesn't end until we get home. I'm not quite sure how that works, but it does. Okay so I have to apologize for the lack of updating during market! I'm so sorry. I left my USB cord at home and couldn't down load any pictures and honestly what is the use without pictures! I found a USB cord at a shop here at the airport and if all goes well I will have a great slide show of pictures (okay just a minute Melda is talking I'll be right back.........................................I'm back, Melda had to tell me a story about a bird crapping in her face. There is a bird flying around the airport and Melda says "The only way our day is going to get any better is if that bird poops in our heads" I said that's going to make our day better? So she has to tell me this silly story about her and her sister way back when they were juniors in high school. They went down on the beach with a couple boys. They fried up some chicken earlier for lunch but when they got down to the beach and started to eat the fried chicken it wasn't cooked all the way through so they fed it to the seagulls. Well after all the fried chicken was gone the seagulls wouldn't leave and kept circling looking for food. Melda was laying on her stomach in the sun with her back to her young friend and this seagull did his thing all over the side of her face (laughing hysterically) she says she tried to wipe it off before he could see but he turned and said what is that white crap all over your face (it looks like bird crap) LOL! Okay we are so bored. I will try and send you some fabulous market photos if I can get my photos down loaded!


Have a fabulous night! Pray for us we want to come home tonight!

We love al y'all

Amy and Melda Dean!

Thank You

Wow! I have had so many emails. Thank you so much for your overflowing offers of wanting to help me, especially during this time of insanity! Really and truly that is what it is! It gets pretty crazy, I'm getting gray hair!! (don't tell anyone) and it's not from my kids they are all angels! (yeah right)! They are pretty cute and most of the time pretty good. We just got a dog (little girl)! She is a chorky (Chiwawa, Yorkie) weighs 2.3 pounds and is so darling. She is anything but and angel. She is ripping my house a part. I will post some pictures later! I promise.

So back to you! I may need a couple more, so you might here from me, but I just wanted to say a big thank you!
