    We all envy you. I live too far away. It sounds like a wonderful show. I am always wanting to go to one in Chicago, but never have. Maybe someday. Have fun, and take pictures.

    Would love to, but would need to win the lottery and that's hard to do if you never buy tickets! Most of us will attend vicariously through those that do so take pictures and tell us your favorite things.

    Hi, I live just north of Spring. I don't know if you know this but there is a wonderful quilt shop in Old Town Spring called GRS Creations. A friend and I were there last week. They have expanded the store. What a treat that store holds. Then on Louetta there is a quilt shop called The Hen House. Then there is It's a Stitch in Humble.

    A carload of us are heading to the show on Friday. We can't wait, it's our first time also!

    Have a safe trip and enjoy the quilt show!

    Carrie
