Every year this time there is a big quilt show in Houston
It's sort of the grand daddy of quilt shows, having been around for quite a while and it has a reputation of being about as big as it gets -- at least in terms of real estate!
I was fortunate this year to have my piece Tsa-la-gi: Cherokee Trail of Tears be on display as part of the Hands All Around show
Fortunate too that a friend of mine was going to the show, and she took a picture for me!
the DH and I made the journey so that I could actually be there for the opening reception
Parched Earth: Wilted Corn is on display there, and over the week end I got an email that the gallery owner has asked for the show to stay up an additional week, so instead of coming down on Dec 3, it will be up until Dec 12
that was an amazing experience
so I went right back into the studio and back to work
the quilting on this piece is now done -- I will be trimming it and putting on the facing this week
on Friday the DH and I made a trip to the fabric store in the next town over (our only option for things like flannel now that the store in our town is closed) and came home with a bag full of flannel destined to become pjs for the clan this Christmas
lots of stitching to get done!!
