Treasures from Houston

Treasures from Houston

I feel like a pirate with my loot.  I had a lot of fun shopping the vendors at the Houston Quilt Show.  Most of my purchases were on my list for Ideal Stitches but I found a few treasures I just couldn’t pass up.

Although it wasn’t on the list, a clock for the studio has become a necessity.  This novelty sewing clock is perfect and looks great!  I admit it was my impulsive purchase for the trip but worth every penny!

I started a quilting charm bracelet this trip.   I think getting a new charm will become a favorite tradition at all of the quilt shows.

I love putting swags in borders and couldn’t wait to get the 5 inch templates.   I admit the Dusty templates are a splurge but know they will be used.  I enjoy ruler work and have a great collection of long arm rulers and templates.

I am trying a out a new manufacturer of thread and was able to get samples of all the Wonderfil threads in either cones or spools.  I can’t wait to load some fabric and try out all the new threads!  I already use their Invisafil Thread.   So many threads, so little time!
