Houston Quilt Market 2006

Open and ready to visit with quilting friends. Shop owners and exhibitors are excited to see what's new! At the end of a really fun first day we went to the MODA party at the Hilton - the line for the food was 552 people long and surprisingly the open bar didn't have a single person waiting. Quilters - FOOD - ALCOHOL - ???? We decided on the open bar - a little wine with a water bottle chaser and we were off for Goode Company Barbecue (mmmmmm delicious) always a highlight while here. Don't miss it if you are visiting Houston.

Nighty Night - the time changes here tonight so we get an extra hour of sleep (yeah!) before we go back for another day of FALL QUILT MARKET!

Foldover Bag
This is the pattern cover for my new handbag. I decided to make up a new word to use for the title - FOLDOVER - seemed to describe it perfectly! Fold Over didn't look very good on the cover - maybe I should submit it to Webster. This long quiet spell (no blog posts) is due to writing the directions/insides for all four new patterns . . . usually I refer to this as working on "the dreaded insides" - perhaps that is because it always seems to be at last minute before quilt market. DEADLINES! who needs them? It is so easy to get distracted with other fun things - sewing, painting, creating collages, shopping - bet you can think of lots of things too! It's late here 11:30 pm but back to writing - ICK!
