Yes, I went to Houston and saw all the quilts. Wow, what an experience. My first time to the Houston Quilt Show, but it won't be my last...The quilts were so lovely. I was amazed with the wonderful quilts. OMG, I have never seen such wonderful work before. And all the vendors, OMG, I have never seen so many vendors in one place. Wow! I almost got whiplash! Running from one vendor to another and looking this way and that. I just had to ooh and ahh at so many things... It was alot of fun but boy, was I tired. My feet and legs still hurt from walking so much. I bought my share of goodies and had to really stop myself from buying more. I could have spent alot more money but I would have been in alot of trouble when I got back home. I laid awake Saturday night thinking I should have bought this or should have bought that. But, I'm going to have trouble doing what I bought now and I can always go back and get more from the internet or locally...I got onto myself for being so greedy!
I sure had a good time with the ladies I went with. We had show and tell when we got back to our hotel and each one of us said: "I didn't see that. Where was that? I want that, or I wish I had bought that." It was so much fun. I'm ready to go back.
I saw Ricky Tims, Alex Anderson, Sandy Jenkins,and Eleanor Burns. I looked for Marti Michell but never saw her. I saw two of her quilts and liked them but couldn't find her anywhere. I saw her booth but didn't see her little white head anywhere...I ran into two ladies from Dallas and Austin that I knew too. I took alot of pictures and I'll post some of those later. Ah, good times. I'm going to guild tonight and see what ghostly things are in store for us. We're having a Halloween Trunk Show. That sounds like fun too, doesn't it? I'll take some pics of that too and post later. More to follow....
