Fun in Houston

I went to the International Quilt Festival in Houston two weekends ago and had a blast. Four of us from north Texas drove down together, met a friend from Louisiana and stayed with friends who live in Houston.

Our Houston friends have a beautiful yard and pond with lovely tropical flowers.

Chives and Bonnie live in Houston too.

I had great fun walking them each morning.

The Beetles, Dynastes Hercules was in the show.

I donated Autumn Poseys to the mini quilt auction.

I had lots of fun doing several of the Make-It University classes.

My name wasn't drawn for this one but I bought the supplies for later.

Here are the photos I took of the quilts on my Flickr photostream.

Until next year!

Rainy October

I've been busy with graphic design lately so not much fiber art going on.
 Yesterday was Berek's birthday. He wanted to try lobster.

He loved it.

It's been raining for days.
The wild plums are ripening.

Rusty is wondering when we are going to
stop looking at fruit and go for a walk!

Progress and Postcards

My niece had twins on August 1.

Mike and Tommy are doing well. They weren't due until October 24,
which is when I hope to have their quilts finished.

My friend Tracey pieced these "Vintage LSU" baby quilts for me.
I added the names and will begin quilting today.

Kathy gave me some cute bird fabric for my birthday
and it inspired me to make postcards.

Rusty is bracing himself for four days of rain. Sigh.

Birthday Dinner

Berek – with assistance from Jon – made dinner last night.

They cooked venison medallions sautéed with mushrooms and bell peppers in a peppercorn sauce over pasta. Yum! I loved it.

What a nice treat. Thank you guys!

Notice the beautiful placemat woven by my talented friend, Linda.
