    I'm back from our Texas trip and no offense to texans, but you can keep your crazy traffic. Everyone loved their quilts-even the dog! I was holding the baby so DH took the picture of DDIL with hers. but here are my sweet little GS and the grnaddog with theirs. I made the bibs and took them with us, but goofed up something b/c they didn't fit! so I brought them home. I've fixed them, now just need to send them back.

    It was so hard to leave! and not just b/c of the baby. I'm not ashamed to admit it-i cried. I do like to v isit down there and will take any opportunity to go. BTW, i did make a quick stop in Quilt Country, i've never seen so many batiks in one spot before. Sadly I didn't purchase any. Maybe next time.

    The baby is adorable. Traffic? What traffic? So used to it from working in Dallas for years that I don't even think about it.
