I'm Back

This is definitely me always have to have one in every colour.

The Texas Quilt Museum

Do you remember the film Baby Boom with Diana Keaton when she gets back into the board room and then goes off to the bathroom and has a little conversation with herself in the mirror saying I'M BACK!!
That is just how I am feeling as at long last I am back online with my home computer which I am far happier with except blogger seems to being doing a few weird things to me.

Just going to ease myself back into posting some fun pictures of Houston and a couple of the quilt museum in La Grange which I went out to on the tour bus.

So hang on in their as I get back to posting and find out what blogger is up to.

Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative

I just couldn't stop by and not buy a quilt from Ami Simms at AAQI booth. She has raised well Over 1/2 million dollars auctioning and selling these little quilts to fund research into this terrible desease.
I stopped by a couple of times and felt very emotional and overwhelmed by the whole thing.

I purchased a lovely one with a huge poppy on it and as my lovely friend Dawn who I was staying with in NC loves poppy's it's now on it's way to her.

Funny thing was after I bought it I checked out the back to see who had donated it and it was a lady in NC so it's going back home.

This is me with Ami. Thanks Ami you have done a fantastic job in raising money and awareness for this worthy cause.

The Brits Are Here

I wandered through the hall looking at the quilts today and found we had four entries that were accepted for the show.
I found three of them but could only find one of the two that Liz Jones has here. I will have another good look tomorrow but meanwhile here are the British quilts.

The first one is Songs of the Earth by Liz Jones.

Next next up is Fata Mongana by Ann Taylor and Gisela Banbury.

The last one is Floral Dimension by Pauline Ineson.

Sorry for having to list them like this but I can't seem to get the hang of posting through iPad. When I get back home I will hopefully have Internet connection-well I live in hope!
