Working my First Quilt Show

Today we closed the store and set up a booth at the Mayfield Historical Society Biennial Quilt Show. It was my job to greet the attendees and give them a special gift envelope we made for them.

I had my very own chair right next to our table.

Here I am in front of our booth display. I am not looking at the camera because all day long people were arriving and as soon as they saw me they would say, "There's Sarah. I recognize you from the story in the paper." Everyone was so nice. Especially all the ladies from the Mayfield Village Quilt Guild. They even made sloppy joes to serve us for lunch. I got to eat with Mrs. Boehler and her daughter and her granddaughter Kimberly. Do you know who Mrs. Boehler is? My good friends Lisa and Stacy's grandmother. She is an excellent quilter. It was a very fun day.

Oh my gosh. When we walked out at 4:00 the sun was so bright I had to cover my eyes. My mom wanted to take a picture in front of this cute display.
