Boy this was a busy week!!!! I had lunch with the gals on Tuesday and then on Thurs we went to Quilt Con in Austin. In between I quilted and of course had to buy some groceries:)

Quilt Con was ok... after awhile the quilts began looking the same:( Lots of negative space for quilting which was gorgeous!!!! There were about 350 quilts and all were chosen from over 4000 applicants. Some you were wondering... really this one beat out others? And then some were like WOW!!!! I guess it all comes down to personal preference. I like Modern quilts but some were a bit too modern for me:) There were a lot of vendors... more then the previous time. But unfortunately I didn't find anything I had to have:( My plan is to finish what I have:) So far so good:) haha!!!

I did get one quilt quilted.... I worked on it Mon, Wed, and finished on Friday.

This is Jo's Hand Applique Poinsettia basket.
She will be adding beads in the poinsettia centers.
She let me play and each block was different so pl…

Happy Day After Valentine's Day!

We didn't go out to eat but I did send hubby to gun range for the day and I sewed:) Today however we went out to eat and to find the airport I will be flying out of in Waco. Easy to find... I am hoping it will be that easy when I fly out.... it will be 6 am so darkness will change the layout for me:(
