I'm getting excited about the Houston Quilt Show
I'm going to the Houston Quilt Show this week and I'm so excited. I'm going with Cathy and Marie from my tatting group. They are also quilters and we are heading out Friday to do some serious shopping. Should I tell you now? I have never been to the Houston Quilt Show. You say, what???? Never been? That's right. I have never been to the Houston show. I have been quilting since 1992 and really never wanted to go.... Why? Different reasons. Work, lack of money, lack of time, too sick, too tired, didn't want to go, didn't want to go with the people that asked me, didn't want to go by myself, etc, etc. etc. Well, this year, two of my tatting friends talked me into it. I just happened to have vacation time left over and the desire was there. I don't have all the money saved up that I wanted to but whoever has enough money? Well, I'm going and am preparing myself to be on overload so I won't be so overwhelmed when I get there. I'm going to try not to take 1000 pictures but I do remember things better when I take pictures. When I went to the fair, I took a picture of where my car was parked so I could remember...I deleted that one but it sure helped. I'm getting more excited every day. I told my friends that I had never gone and they couldn't believe it. Cathy said she was thinking about making me wear a tiara. Yeah, right, that will happen! Anyway, I'm looking forward to the trip and a few days with the girls. I'm hoping the weather improves before we go. Of course, we will see the quilts but I can't wait to see all the new gadgets, gizmos and gotta haves! Three more days and we'll be on our way....Maybe I'll see you there...
