    Wink Home from Houston

    Just now got home from my first trip to the International show. OMG! It was fantastic! This just proves that quilting is the perfect passion for me.

    Making plans for next year already.

    Do you have any pictures to share, please? Was it sooooo busy or did you have room to move around freely. I ask that because a lot of the fabric expos we have are so crowded we have to wear armor to move through it. Did you get worn out walking around, just can't imagine something that big. How many days was it? I am glad you had a great time.

    I'm glad you got to attend the show this year. I hope I get to go next year.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    It was very crowded Saturday. Still amazing. I did a lot of Christmas shopping. Have a lot of work to do. When I figure out how to post pictures, I'll get my pics posted of my purchases. The most amazing part was that it's truly international, not just a title. We were waiting in line Sat. morning to go in when a quilter from Thailand noticed my friend's Quilted jacket. She didn't speak English, but quilting becomes universal. The woman is a published quilter and gifted my friend with a beautiful fabric pin that matches the jacket.

    The quilts were beautiful.
