Trick or Treat

Yesterday was the opening of Houston Quilt Festival, preview night. It opened at 5 and closed at 10. Of course, I had to go. Cathy and I planned it all out, she took off a half day, drove over and graciously helped me with Kynlee’s “Pebbles” top and then we met up with Rhonda M from San Antonio for an early dinner at Mia Bella’s downtown.

The dinner was wonderful; I highly recommend their food, as well as the service we received. After dinner the 3 of us walked back to the GRB and we were able to enter the show and shop until it closed.

As we walked through the GRB we were able to view the winners of the quilt show. Guess what, I hung some of those quilts! It was fun to see that I handled some of those quilts. Here are pictures of some of the winner’s.

We walked through all the vendors, well most of them and I found my new Australian friends, there are in booth 1350. The name of their shop is Flip la K, from Stroud. They have a pretty cool product, you will have to go by and check them out.

Yan from Fliplak, she is so funny!

I was tired, but we had a great evening.

Today, it was raining cats and dogs and I had to be back downtown at 10 to work. I thought I was going to have to use someone’s boat, but I managed to get parked and inside without being completely soaked. Wahoo!

I worked until 2:30 and then shopped around with Brenda W and then I drove us home.

See my cute little Trick or Treaters! Bam-Bam went to the neighbors next door and went right into their home. It was his first time to Trick or Treat, it was so funny – they all laughed and thought he was so cute! ☺
