Heading to Houston

Hi Everyone,

I am heading to Houston tomorrow to assist Kathy Cardiff for the International Quilt Market.  I have worked with her at another show a while back in Kansas City.  I truly look forward to this event!

Set up on Friday, show Saturday, Sunday and home Tuesday.....

We will not be staying for Quilt Festival...This is the show that is open to the public after the Vendors market.I understand it is amazing but we are heading home. I will be ready :)

Not much sewing being done here...but once I return - I'm on it!!!!

Thought this was adorable....

I saw this pillow on Norma Whaley's blog and thought it was great.  I love the colors - a soft approach to fall!!! I believe it  was on a post she did from the Quilters Attic.
Loved it!!!

Well, back to packing and then a Quilt Guild meeting tonight!

Enjoy whatever you are doing but most of all SMILE and give a hug :)

Remember SMILE always....

Happy Columbus Day!!

Time just flies....

This past week-end the Country Loft had a guest teacher....Debbie Busby from
Wooden Spool Designs.  She taught both Friday and Saturday....Such a fun few days to have her here in San Diego!

On Saturday we had a few local wonderful ladies join in the fun.....Cheri Payne from Quilts by Cheri and Kathy Cardiff from The Cottage at Cardiff Farms....

Debbie, Kathy and Cheri!!!
  Such great talents :)

I made a decision this past week - PUT EVERYTHING AWAY that is not a project needed for Christmas!!!!! For some reason I have been challenged to stay focused...So...I had only one choice :)

This will be three gifts!  I love the wool and linen and I will be cutting today!

I have another distraction - but one I love and so enjoy!!

Yesterday we went swimming in the pool and then came back and made cupcakes :)
Such a bundle of joy and love!!!!! 
Love our Cooper and Emma!

Hope you all have a great week. I am about to start the Christmas count down....

Be back soon to tell you about another little side trip I will be taking :)

Remember - SMILE always and yup!  share a hug with someone today!
