Yeehaa! Guess where I’m going tomorrow?

I’ll give you a clue


Here’s another one

Still no?

OK I’ll tell you. It is a little unexpected, but I’m going somewhere I’ve wanted to go for a very long time…

The Houston Quilt Festival!!!

Can you believe it? I can’t. The state of my packing conforms this, but it’s really true. Tomorrow I’ll be winging my way off to San Antonio for a couple of days, followed by four days in Houston. I’m taking a tour, so I’ll be doing a lot of lovely quilting related things along the way, together with doing exciting things like visiting the Alamo and LBJ’s ranch. I’m so excited I can’t tell you!

But of course I will….

So watch this space!

    Oh I am so jealous! Some of my quilting friends here are also going and I want to go too. Maybe next year. Have a wonderful time and I’m looking forward to a full market report upon your return.

    Oh Helen, I hope you get this before leaving the Quilt Festival. My sweet daughter Diane Gilleland (Craftypod) is there demonstrating the new Kanzashi templates for Clover.
    Hopefully you will have a moment to stop by and say hello!

    Have a fantastic time, my friend.

    Wow Helen, sounds like a blast! Enjoy yourself, and enjoy Houston’s weather (i.e., NOT COLD!) Give a wave to my son, who is in his second year at Rice University there in Houston.
