Back From Houston
There is a certain kitty who was very glad to see me when I finally got home from Houston. That same silly kitty is watching me tap the keys as I write this blog post. Kinda makes it hard to concentrate while he is staring at me!
He knows the quilt with his portrait was a big hit in Houston in my classes and lectures. Speaking of which…
Day 1: Woke up at oh dark thirty and caught my 2 planes to Houston. Luggage arrived safely-phew! Got to the hotel and went to the teacher’s lounge to unpack my supplies and schedule. I met many wonderful teachers along the way, and the staff was really helpful.
I went for a quick dash around the floor that night and took some pictures. Sometime around 9 pm. I gave a tired presentation at Meet the Teachers. I’ll admit, it was not my best effort.
Here are some of the wonderful quilts I saw. My apologies to the makers- I did not take pics of the title cards. I will try to remember when and where I can.
One of my favs.
