Too much travel in October. Memphis for fun, Minneapolis, Chicago and Houston for work. At the end of all my travelling in October I caught a cold. I was worried that I would be too sick to go the the Quilt Show, but was feeling quite a bit better by the weekend.
I went with 3 friends from my bee. Dana drove Lema, Twana, and me. We went down Sat morning and came back Sun evening. It is a 4 1/2 hour drive. We had two days at the quilt show, and I don't think that was enough. I would love to go for a longer period and take some classes.
Beautiful, beautiful quilts. Inspiring, thought provoking. Add to that over 1000 vendors!
One of my favorite moments - I was sitting on a bench resting while the others were off looking at quilts. I could see about 5 quilts from my perch and was idly watching quilts and viewers. A man and 2 little girls came through looking at the quilts and the girls were looking and exclaiming but rushing forward and he was gently chiding them to slow down as he would pause to look at the quilts.
I bought some felted wool for applique, some rulers, and a couple stencils.
