I had the best time in Houston a couple of weeks ago, at the International Quilt Festival. I shopped full time, and in 4 days I covered all 2000 booths (well, the numbers went from 100-2000 but I don't know how many vendors there really were.)
I ended up buying some supplies for some cute projects. I bought about $10 of colorful buttons (to go with the ten pounds of buttons I already own) and I want to make wooden letters (see above) with my grandkids or with my daughters-in-laws.
I read two more novels on the planes. They were both by Adriana Trigiani, she is one of my favorite authors. (My favorite so far has been "Lucia,Lucia"). I really like her Big Stone Gap series. I just read the third book, "Milk Glass Moon", and the fourth, "Home to Big Stone Gap."
Here is some vintage trim I bought, I have high hopes of making some funky curtains for my sewing room and using this on them.
