Packed and ready

My bags are packed, I’m ready to go…


Steve laughed at me for getting up at 6.05 this morning to check in for our 6.10 am flight tomorrow… but now I’ve got my boarding pass and I know there will be a seat for me!

Yesterday I made some ATCs… I haven’t tried trading before but I’m ready for an adventure on my first trip to International Quilt Festival in Houston.

I made a 11 by 8 piece of fused and couched art on a piece of Fast2Fuse.  Then I printed out a sheet of my business cards onto quilt label fabric and put it on the back. I cut the cards out and satin stitched around the edges and added hot fix crystals and here they are…


Here’s a close up of one of them,

And a view of the other side…

“Quilter, teacher, speaker”… that’s me!!




I wanted to get my October blocks done for Imperial Blooms before I left. It was the top and bottom borders this month. I’m glad to report I achieved my goal and here they are, all sewn together and pressed.

Quite straightforward this month, but a lot of bullion stitches around the 12 large circles!!


All ready to go!!

Houston here I come!
