Back to the Blog!

Back to paying attention to our Blog chats.  No good reasons for not adding a story or two after Houston – it is just what it is.  I know many of you can understand with some sympathy. 

I am now in Baltimore visiting my daughter and grandson…a bit of a vacation.  However, I do have my RedWork stitching to do while here.  We ALL need some NEW stuff after Thanksgiving and Christmas. 

After a weekend of kid soccer at a tournament we had lunch at P.F.Chang Sunday.  Very Tasty!!  Then some necessary shopping at Costco where we found some stuff for people and dogs.  It is fun on vacation!


Today I was treated to a very relaxing facial at a charming salon in Federal Hill right next to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.  So elegant and ladylike!!

Now back to my Embroidery so we have something new soon….today it is another kitty design with a doggy companion in the drawing stages in my notebook.

Enjoy getting ready for Turkey Day….Robin

On Our Way Home

We are still in Texas but west of Houston – finally!  It is a BIG city.  Here is Lucy in the convention center loading dock parking, our very handy “camping” grounds for the Quilt Show. Everyone else was gone by Monday morning.  Last night we stopped at a Wal-Mart after visiting friends in the morning and shopping at a wonderful Antiques Mall in Spring, Texas. 

A little more than 700 miles across Texas to head into New Mexico.  Better get behind the wheel and head west on I-10.

The Show is Open–Come See us!

Houston’s International Quilt Festival is as busy as ever and we are seeing lots of old friends and making new ones! Still a lovely way to make a living!!

Our Quilting Buddy, Mary Jean, is bagging up the goodies these ladies have selected.  After the show closes Mary Jean and Margo, both from Houston, have been carting us around to favorite restaurants.  This makes a great trip for us!  Come to the show if you are able!

Yesterday, Jeanne stopped by with her Bird Brain Tote complete with Big Birdie embroidered on the side.

  Make yours with our FREE pattern.  You can order the 2 Tea Towels plus the muslin for lining and Perle Cotton for embroidery on our website.  Make one for yourself!
