She did a lot of socializing cause she had to meet all of my super cool friends! And she worked hard modeling and helping daddy sell patterns. We had several offers for her too (she just does her job so well you know) but we decided that we would keep her. Here she is with my (amazingly artistic) friend Hayley, from The Button Company. I got to hold Hayley's little angel at the last market! I remember smelling his little head and thinking "Is it really possible that I'm going to get to do this again?"
Jeannie, from The Old Fashioned Baby, put her to work in her booth. I LOVE Jeannie! She is such a beautiful person!
She hung out with the awesome Maja of Maja's Heirlooms. Claire liked her, she's a nut!
She hob knobbed with Wendy of Wendy Schoen Designs.
This is Wendy's sweet sister Penny.
She talked fabric and cut-up with Mike at Fabric Finders. This guy is always laughing!
She snuggled with Sally from Farmhouse Fabrics.
She loved our good buddy Trisha, from Patterns by Trisha's Treasures. She is such a sweet friend! And probably the most organised person I know (seriously, it's crazy!)
Claire was such a sweet girl at market! She worked very hard and was the most precious little model! The first day, while we were super busy, my Aunt Wendy came and for a couple of hours to keep her entertained. I thought that working a wholesale market with a six month old was going to be soooo challenging, but God worked it out perfectly! She even started sitting-up (YES! How did that happen?) last week so she was loving playing in the floor on a blanket (in cute mama made outfits of course). To sum it all up, it was the best market yet! I can't wait till January! I hope you enjoyed our little tour. :) xo, Sam
