Houston Quilt Festival

Oh, I've been sitting, green with envy, this whole past week. All these wonderful quilters have been in Houston for Market, which ended yesterday. Tomorrow starts off the International Quilt Festival. Oh, how I wish I were there!! Imagine, all that fabric, the gadgets, the designers... all that eye candy!! I am going to Overland Park, KS in May for MQS, a longarm convention. So, I keep telling myself right now that that is what I'm saving my $$ for. Ü

I have gotten caught up on my customers quilts. Ü I have several to do for friends as customer quilts do come in. They aren't talking to me much (the quilts, not the friends) so I'm not sure how to quilt them. In the meantime, I need to get back to making a baby quilt as the shower is coming up the end of the month.

Fall has arrived!! I love this time of year!! We had a drizzling mist the other night, had a sheet of ice on the car Saturday. Today Ricky Tims posted on Facebook that his new Christmas CD will be available soon. If you want to hear samples of the songs, here is the link. http://www.christmasinasmalltown.com/ I'm anxiouly waiting to hear when it will be released. The samples are really nice!!

Today is a perfect day for stew, homemade rolls and apple pie. So, this is short and sweet as I need to get busy. My house is going to smell so good in a couple of hours!!!

Happy Fall!!
