Tons of Fun in October

I just got in from the International Quilt Festival in Houston....what fun! I had so much fun that I did not take the time to take but a few pictures and I want to share this amazing quilt I saw on display! I absolutely love these colorful flowers on the black and white background. It was sparkling...just dazzling! My pics just don't do it justice and my pic of who made it and about the quilt did not turn out :(
Also here is one picture of when I went to Round Top, Texas to the antique show. Boy, October has been busy for me in trying to keep up with family, work, homework and these two road trips (but oh what fun!) Hope all that got to go to Houston had as much fun as I did and can't wait till next year. With my new purchases, maybe I'll just get a picture posted of a finished project soon LOL. Night all and hope everyone is blessed :) Till next time, Kathy

Cherry fabric brings a smile

I purchased this fabric a couple of months ago along with a pattern for one large log cabin. I absolutely cannot wait to start this project and brighten up my sewing room. I also want to make a banner to hang in both windows. Tomorrow I am heading to Round Top, Texas!!! It's a famous antique show that is twice a year. If you have not ever heard of it.....just google it and plan on a road trip at least once. It's miles and miles and miles of antiques. I don't think you could cover it in a week. This is a very exciting month in two weeks its the International Quilt Festival in Houston at the George R Brown Convenction Center. I am so ready for this show.....Just makes a girl smile :) With all the excitement, I am glad my class this time around is not as fast paced! By the way, I am half finished with the RN to BSN program. After my next five week class, I will be on break until after Christmas. HOOORAYYYY! Many plans for Christmas sewing in the making. Till next time and hope everyone is blessed! Kathy
