Well I didn't get to stay in Houston as long as I would have liked, but I enjoyed meeting Margo, Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson! I also had a lovely winner's circle luncheon with Carol Moellers. And last, but certainly not least, I won 1st place with my quilt, B.S. I Love You, in the embellished category!! It is always an amazing show and I always can't wait to come back next year!!
Back to Quilting!

It was interesting to see the cotton that was being grown and harvested in Southern Missouri and Northern Arkansas.

I didn't get to see all the vendors because I ran out of time and I ran out of time because I went to see the vendor for the Stewart Gill Paints to see if there was anything new. There was! They have a product called Leather Primer and I did a demo of how to use it. Took about an hour of my time but it was fun. I will show you the results when I get it done.

Well, Margo was actually one of the highlights of my trip! And, the story goes like this: As many of you know Debbie Wolf and I found each other to be a kindred spirit quite early in the SOTTT exchange. And, she was my most gracious hostess during my stay. The two of us had also become close with Debbie Kendall, who made the "Thank You" quilt block from Texas. So, Debbie W had planned a day for the three of us on Wednesday, and asked if we would like to go to the new quilt museum in La Grange on Wednesday. She also said she had a BIG surprise for us! We tried to get some hints, but her lips were sealed! So, Wednesday morning just before the three of us were heading out the door, the door bell rang. And, who was there, but our very own MARGO! It was a SUPER SPECIAL day, indeed! Below are pictures of our outing. (There were no photos allowed in the museum.)

OK...surely someone has a tale to tell?? Because I was staying at the Club Quarters, which is not on the shuttle run, I used a cab several times to get back and forth to GRB. And twice I was able to catch a PediCab and was bicycled back to the hotel!! Fun!

The TQS dinner and the daily Meet & Greets were definitely highlights of my trip, but I must say that the most fun I had was a day trip to the brand new Texas Quilt Museum in LaGrange with Deb Wolf and Debbie Kendall and Dawn Siden! A fabulous day with fun ladies and a destination that I will make the effort to visit again! It's a New Day! http://www.texasquiltmuseum.org/Texas_Quilt_Museum/LANDING.html
