I finally have a minute to sit down and blog. I am quite excited as m y website is coming along quite nicely. Eric has been busy creating and generally making it loo k great. It is his design, I just told him what I wanted, and he took it and run with it. I hope you’ll be as impressed as I am. you’ll be as impressed as I am. So, now I get to blog knowing that the end result will look great.
I got back from Houston last Sunday, and have been meaning to post some photos. Houston was special this year. On the one hand, it meant that I would spend time with my friend Marcela who moved to The Netherlands in July and get to see my miniature quilt “The Shell Seekers” hanging among all the other artists’ work. Here we are: from left to right: Chris from Dallas, Therese from Houston, Marcela from The Hague and I from Calgary.
It also meant that I would meet with my friends from the quilting group in Buenos Aires, whom I haven’t seen in over 5 years: Ceci, Tere, Caro, Estela and Lana who now lives in Chicago. Too bad I missed Julie who is in Florida. Julie if you are out there and reading this, please drop me a line. And here, below, are all of us having lunch.

We spent two days at the show, walked for hours looking at the quilts and taking photos. What amazing work women, and men, produce. There were incredible works of art in every category, and of every size. I was awed by the quilts done by hand, most of them produced by Japanese artists, as that is something I don’t do. I will share with you some of the photos I took.

I will post more photos later on in the day, and in the coming week. Until I blog again, keep quilting.
