Quilting Whirlwind Festival Countdown

Standard

It’s October, Houston Quilt Festival and market time! Cleaning house, finishing customer quilts and preparing for a house full of quilters for ten days. I look forward to this so much every year. People sleeping everywhere, comparing festival purchases each night, tons of food and drink, and our annual favorite snack – peanuts mixed with candy corn! Yup, super good, try it!

Just finished a really nice Texas Quilt made by Keeley. She is so talented. This quilt was based on an Across Texas Shop Hop from a year ago, I believe!

Wow what a fantastic day Wednesday turned out to be. At the Coastal Prairie Quilt Guild meeting, starring our speaker from Grayslake, Illinois Ebony Love, a guest was introduced and she had a fantastic surprise. She was from the Lake Jackson guild – Plantation Quilt Guild – and had their donation raffle quilt which had been won by one of our members! Imagine my surprise when it turned out to be me. WOW! My day for sure. Isn’t this quilt super and so much fun! I love the colors and will hang it in my house today. I will give it “entry-hall” treatment. So excited. Then, I even won a door prize that night.

I really felt special!

Be Happy, Karen

SANTA’S HEAD IS COOKING!

Standard

Had a great time today at our Saturday Coastal Prairie Guild class on sculpting Santa’s head.  Pat is a great instructor and, despite my misgivings, she guided me on to making my Santa head..(he is cooking in the oven right now).  Pictured here is my head alone and the group pic tags Pats head on your left, my head in the middle, and Candy’s head on the right!  They are so cute and so much fun to make.  Can’t wait to see them after they get their makeup, hair, etc.

The quilt picture is Jeannie’s House quilt.  She designed the quilt and the houses.  I love her fun use of color!  Great quilt Jeannie!

Last, but not least, is a table topper made of Texas wildflowers and made for me by my friend Joyce from Florida!  You go Joyce…it is fantastic!

Hope everyone is enjoying a great weekend. meanwhile…BE HAPPY!
