Home from Houston!!!

The world's largest quilt show  celebrated its 40th anniversary in Houston and I was there with my suffrage crazy quilt......I still find it hard to believe.   The show attracts more than 60,000  people  and in addition to exhibits of traditional and contemporary textiles, there was a full schedule of classes and seminars.


There were red and white quilts everywhere....I am home, tired, overwhelmed and absolutely bursting to share everything I saw and learned.  But first I have to find my way around the disaster I left in my wake getting the much admired vest (yes, vest!) done.

So when I am unpacked, rested and find my way around the mess,  I will start a series of blogs as I get all the pictures Susie Wolfe and I took downloaded... Susie was a fabulous companion and managed to keep me going everytime I thought I couldn't take another step...

But besides seeing my crazy quilt hanging there, the biggest thrill was having someone approach who recognized me and say they read my blog every day...  It was a big boost as I was considering if I want to keep blogging after all this time and do I even  have enough to share to keep going.  I was truly touched each time it happened.

So in addition to  changing to daylight savings and the time zone changes, I caught a cold on the plane home...  much to come.... Needless to say, Morris was so happy to see me and wanted a lot of cuddles and love  and I was happy to oblige.  (DH also)

Oh my gosh - it would be such a loss to all of us if you stop blogging. I hope you decide to keep on. You are such an inspiration to me. Get well soon, rest up and make order and then show us all what you saw in Houston :)
