Fun in my fabric world....

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

Lea, Loz and I are on the final stage of our trip....the Houston Quilt Festival has been visited and now we are heading to the Grand Canyon via a quick stopover in Las Vegas.


The festival was interesting...sort of like our craft shows but supersized!
My favourite part was looking at the antique quilts....so very inspirational and fabulous talking to a dealer, John Sauls, about the quilts...learning how we found them and what to look for when buying.


The weather in Houston was much warmer, we walked to and from the convention centre.


Now we are in Vegas...sensory overload...noise, lights, people and smells...not my kind of town at all, but an experience of excess indeed.


Just waiting for our trip to the Grand Canyon....a bit of a mix up and now we are flying both ways....bit of a shame as we were keen for the road trip...but the main thing is that we get there and speak clearly!

Ohh...how wonderful. That quilt show must have been great. And I'm SO jealous on your Great Canyon trip. That must be breathtaking beautiful there. Looking forward to see some pictures
