I'm not sure how or when it happened, but it's official...
We are old ladies in training.
Thursday morning Carrey, Erica and I got up at 5 a.m. to board a bus sponsored by our local fabric store to drive to 3 1/2 hours to the Houston Quilt Show.
I was the first person to pull into the parking lot at 5:50 if that tells you how excited I was. After our Starbucks, we were bright eyed and bushy tailed.
There were piles of fabric to dig through. Searching and finding rare fabric for me ,is like finding a brand new iPad at a garage sale for $20 for everyone else. Pretty exciting stuff!
We met Jenny at the show and shared a yummy picnic lunch outside. The weather was gorgeous! As much as we didn't want to take a break from shopping, it was just what we needed to recharge. After several hours of more shopping, we headed to Ninfas for some margaritas before we boarded the bus at 7 p.m.
I'm very happy with my fabric finds! Some of it will go in my Etsy store, some is for my personal stash, and some is for a baby quilt for my crazy friend Sammy who isn't finding out if she is having a boy or girl. I had no choice but to buy fabric for a boy and a girl quilt just in case!
We had a great time at the Houston Quilt Show and look forward to going back next year!
