Bits and pieces from my trip to Houston

 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.
