I just returned home from the Houston International Quilt Festival~~~over 1300 quilts, 1000 vendors and hundreds of classes. I had a fabulous time and took 4 classes. I shopped until my bags were too heavy to carry and enjoyed all the talent displayed in the quilts. It must have been great exercise as I didn’t even gain a pound! Today has been a recovery day, mostly from the work of getting my bags to and from the airport yesterday. Is it too early to start planning for 2014???
