What a great response to our Altar Exhibit at Quilt Market and Festival in Houston Texas. Thank you to our sponsor eQuilter.com for their support. Want to thank all these quilters that accompanied me there. Always great when we can share our culture and educate about our traditions! Hope those that saw our exhibit enjoyed it!

Week After Road!!!!

How come I feel like I need more hours in my day?

Home unpacked McQueen and restocked the warehouse. Filed through the mail pile on my desk. And now trying to get my sample finished for Spring retreat. Then its making kits for Mexico trip. Taking Altar Exhibit to Quilt Expo in Mexico City Feb. 14-18. I will also be teaching Altar class and a needle case class. Maybe a set of roller-skates would help???? No would probably break a hip????
