This will be a a rather uninformative post, I'm afraid. I am exhausted, I've got lots to focus on now that I'm back (primarily calendar making!), my legs and feet hurt from walking so much with a heavy tote, and I am a little overwhelmed as to where to be begin. I still need to download the few pics I took and gather my thoughts on what I want to say.
During this whirlwind experience at the International Quilt Market in Houston, I realized I'd make a terrible reporter. I was feeling a bit pressured to "tell all", when in reality, there is so much to tell, I couldn't possibly remember it in detail or get all the facts straight. I'm not a note taker, remembering names is hardly a strong suit, and my biggest impressions can sometimes be on the smallest of details. So, I'll share what I can over then next few days.
All in all, it was a most educational experience, but one of the most incredible aspects was that I got to meet so many blog personalities face to face- an experience that many of us found exhilarating since we spend most of our time in the veil of a computer screen and editable format of communicating. So, I'm very happy that I made the efforts! More to come... stay tuned.
Here's a picture of the Henry Glass Booth and the lap quilt (right) they had made with Dogwood for the show. I think it came out great! They also dressed the back table, the desks and the chairs at the desk in my fabric, too.
PS- Can you believe Halloween is this Friday?! I still have to work out my son's costume and plan the day- never a dull moment 'round here.
