Melody Miller came to town this week and I must say it exceeded all my expectations! Since I first invited her in November, I’ve been anxiously looking forward to this. She is absolutely delightful! She oozes creativity!!
I picked her up at the airport and we headed to Village Tavern (by way of Starbucks and Sew Original:). Lunch at the tavern was delicious as always! French fries were involved. We talked and talked about the fabric industry and inspiration and all sorts of things. Melody is quite witty and you know I like witty:)
Then it was off to her book signing at The Little General!
Delicious cupcakes from Tart Sweets! And Melody’s awesome book!! And bundles of MM fabric!!! Lots of fun peeps came by and a good time was had by all. Check out the coolest suitcase ever! Gina still has a couple copies of the book and a few fabric bundles left if you missed out.
Then we headed over to the guild meeting (by way of drinks at the tavern)! Melody gave a wonderful presentation on her fabric lines…past, present and future! I cannot wait for the new line!! I’m going to have Melody’s grandma on a tote;)
My quilty friend Sarah is also an AMAZING cake decorator! Look what she made for the party!! Melody called it the most amazing cake in the world. It was…we ate it;)
And then we ate out again… at Five Points! I’ve never been more tired and I’m sure Melody felt the same way. But it was a wonderful day! And that was just day one:)
After a yummy breakfast of farm fresh eggs from Sarah (or should I say home fresh eggs?), we headed to The Little General for class! Working from her book, we made totes from vintage shirts and fabrics. Melody provided all the gorgeous linens and shirts.
And I had Melody sign some fabric! You know I’m going to hook up my bee mates in The Usual Suspects!!
Thank you so much for coming, Melody!! We all had a blast!! You’re welcome back anytime:)
