    I did, I did!!! I went today with my BF (aka "the enabler") and came home super inspired, tired feet and empty wallet (mine and his) and pretty additions to my stash. I saw, I bought, I had a great time! How long till next year???
    Quilting makes me happy!..

    We went, my daughter and I. First trip...did the preview on Wed and left this morning for the long trip home, 8 hours driving. But it was worth every minute, overload, brain is racing thinking of sew many quilts to get done
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    It was such a thrill to get to go for my very first time. A group of six of us went together.....what fun! Beautiful quilts every where and way too many vendors in one place!!!!! I wanted everything It will take me days to settle down and focus on one project at a time. Loved the whole experience

    I didn't get to go, but the owners of the quilt shop where I teach go. That means in the next couple of weeks I'll be getting new patterns and material to do store samples. It's always fun to see what they bring back. I would love to go sometime.

    I hope to attend next year. My brother lives outside Houston and I could go for a visit with a little side trip to the quilt show!
