Back home from International Quilt Festival

My first night in Houston I met up with a few of my favorite witches Susan Bruebaker Knapp and Robbi Eklow. Our coven gathered in the bar at the Hilton and then went to dinner over at The Grove. It was a special night since it was the start of my week at festival and also Susan’s birthday.

I had to get a photo of Robbi and I standing next to each other since Robbi is about 5 feet tall, I am 5’9″ and for the occasion I was wearing 4″ heels!

Frieda Anderson and Laura Wasilowski were supposed to join us, but poor Frieda got Strep throat while at Market and was definitely not up to a night out. I can’t imagine anything worse than getting sick like that when you have to teach!

One of the things most people don’t see at festival is the teachers lounge. This is a place for teachers to check in, collect their supplies they’ve had shipped, take a break and get a cup of coffee or tea. You never know who you’ll see or what may be going on in there. Never thought I’d walk in and see Hollis Chatelain and Laura Wasilowski hula hooping early one morning.

It’s good to be home, but my week in Houston always goes by way too fast! I have lots more to share over the next week or so but it’s going to take me a little while to edit photos and write up some posts.
Stay tuned for more crazy adventures!
