Well, I am going to Houston! I found some roommates (really they found me but you know what I mean) They are members of quiltart.com and both of them have been to Houston before. One of them is a winner from the 2006 show. The other is a winner because she had the room reservation! The International Quilt Festival has 50,000 attendees each year. I will be gone from 10/28 to 11/2...I am so thankful my family is supportive of me going. I will miss a couple of things going on, Halloween for one. Halloween with 4 kids can be challanging with two parents:) I know Kevin can handle it and hopefully Morgan and Jillian will help Paige and Griffin with their costumes maybe they read my blog?)
Here are some photos of the quilt I sold this week. It is from a photo Kevin took of a waterfall at the Mumford River in Uxbridge, MA. I couldn't find the photo in my pictures but I think it is in his folder, I will look later. I made two of them, the other one is very similar but not exactly the same. There are NO crystals on it but lots of pretty threads and silk fabric. I got most of the Batik fabric at the quilter's loft in Webster MA. I heard they are closing:( I went with my friend Kathy - you can check out her blog from the link to the right of this page - finishing lines. She is an unbelievable quilter/artist and a great friend.
I sold 5 Murphybags this week! What a thrill to make something that you love and have other people want one too.
