Houston? Anyone?

It’s funny how out of the blue in a passing email or in a yahoo group, someone will mention Houston Quilt show in November. And I get all excited thinking of going this year for the first time!

I plan on getting my airline tickets next month and already have places to stay – love the internet! I met a wonderful new friend from Live Journal who has offered me a spot in her group from Austin to stay. We plan to do some shop hopping before we go down to Houston and maybe some more hopping on the way back. I just can not wait!

So, I’m off of work today and working on my BOM from Live Journal, then plan to do a DJ block or two, maybe toss in doing one catch up block on my Flower BOM that meets this Saturday – – -oh and do a quickie paper piecing wall hanging for a class I plan to teach at the shop in July.

I’m so excited….next 2 days of sewing should produce lots of pictures!

OHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhh and my butterfly quilt I sent off to be quilted (2 weeks ago) is done…here are the pictures she sent me:

The second picture show the back folded over the front.

She’s sending it out today, so I guess I should add prepare binding to my list of things to do! 😀



  1. I’m going for the first time… (I got some the the SWA on sale tickets & my dad lives in the area – so there is my lodging…)

  2. My husband retires next July so I have plans to go in 2008 or if not then 2009! See you there!

    Love the butterfly quilt, my grand daughter loves all things purple and butterflies so she would be in heaven.
