Well it has been a very busy couple of weeks, both at Festival and re-entry coming home. I sold out of ALL the books and DVDs I had for sale in Houston, so spent my first day home unpacking, my second day home filling orders and getting them shipped out, and then dealing with all the accumulated “stuff” in my email inbox, laundry, groceries and the usual nonsense! Finally I’m at a point where I could process photos for the blog, so will have LOTS to share with you! I think I’ll start with some eye candy (photos of quilts!) then go more or less in chronological order. And interspersed with the Festival posts I’ll start the second/final Bloghop and Giveaway for my Art Quilt Design: From Photo to Threadwork DVD on the 12th!
Then I went to find my quilt, Listen to the Song in the Night, in the Dinner@8 exhibit “An Exquisite Moment.” I had been worried because it is a fairly dark quilt and would be displayed on black (you can see in the photo above how the dark background on my quilt disappears into the drape!). I was relieved that it looked good!
I’ll confess, I TOTALLY love taking pictures of people taking pictures of my quilts! What a rush that someone likes my work enough to want to take a picture!
While doing the kamikaze run through the quilts on Preview, I snapped some pictures of quilts that really sang to me, not wanting to risk missing these when I finally had my day off (Sunday) to see the show.
Down at the far end (hall A), was an exhibit inspired by maps, and of course I LOVE maps! This quilt was just “the bee’s knees.” LOVE IT!

I’ll be back soon with more pics! Glad to be HOME, had a glorious time at Festival, and look forward to next year.
