My flight got in a half hour early, landing at 8:30am instead of 9pm ----and I was ever so grateful for her company. It sure beat taking a taxi from the airport to the hotel, and then having to sit in the lobby for 5 hours because you can’t check in until 2pm. What would I have done with myself? Well, hexies I suppose!
I got a bit done in that 90 minute flight from Greensboro to Dallas…..and I napped!
We went back to Candace's house and I got to kick my shoes off and relax a bit and talk about all-things-quilting! She has a beautiful house, with a real knack for organizing and making good use of space. I loved seeing her own quilts, as well as some antique quilts in her collection!
From there two girls set off on a shopping agenda:
The CONTAINER STORE!
This was really a fun place, and I’ll need to go back to one when I get home….there is some STUFF I really need!
From here we wandered up to Plano to get a bit of this:
I’m teaching here over New Years ---Teaching a Special Mystery, and a few other classes and I needed to touch base with Lisa to see how we were coming along and discuss details. Nice to see the gals at the shop and catch up on everything! If you are interested and will be in the Dallas area around New Years, check out Fabric Fanatic’s website Contact Page for more info. Drop them an email or give them a call –there are a handful of available slots left. I’d love to see you there!
From here we wandered down to El Fenix for some great Tex Mex lunch ----and then a bit more shopping before it was time to drop me off at my hotel for a much needed nap!
Waiting in the 100 degree heat for my ride to pick me up! I’m MELTING!!
The guild meeting was standing room only last night!
The empty chairs you see are reserved for board members and one of them is mine What a fun vivacious group! There is NOTHING like being with a group of fun quilters ---
I love it when quilters bring THEIR completed quilts to share with me! This is Pfeffernusse ---and just look at that smile! Great job!
Time flew and before we knew it, we were packing it up and heading back to the hotel.
I can’t sleep on a hotel bed until I put a quilt on it!
I’m teaching this quilt, Jamestown Landing today. We plan on making a really big mess in the scraps and having a ton of fun. I’ll try to send updates through the day ----
Have a great Friday everyone!
