Quilt Market

Today was the first day at Quilt Market in Minneapolis.  It is where all of the manufacturers, designers, fabric companies and the like meet and show their wares to quilt shops so that they can provide lovely goodies for quilters for the next year. A lot of business takes place here, a lot of learning takes place here, and it's a bit of a family reunion.

It has been 34 days since I've last had a Diet Coke.  It's easier say no to Diet Coke when I'm eating healthfully.  I was nervous coming to Market. Would I cave and drink a diet soda?  Would I give in to the temptation of cake? Would there be any healthy convention center food choices?

Well, I found that I shouldn't have worried.  My hotel supplies healthy breakfast options.  I had a lunch meeting and enjoyed this:


Beet salad.  Mmmmmmm.....

I think I'm going to have an easy time finding healthy food here.  To make matters even better:


I walked my feet off!  I may come home from Market a mere shadow of my former self.

If that doesn't happen, I will at least come home to a cleaner studio. I'm participating in the #Springcleanyourstudio Blog Hop.  Check out what the other bloggers are doing with their creativespaces.
