Houston International Quilt Festival

Well it's time to fess up, I am so excited as it's only two weeks until 
International Quilt Festival in Houston
and I am going....arrrghhh!!!

I am so excited I could burst, Karen from
Quilts on Bastings and I are heading to Houston for the Show and
some Longarm classes. We have been planning
and booking over the last few months and I figure
I can start to get excited..... a little bit anyway!!!!
(don't let me down Qantas)

We have booked classes with Irena Bluhm, Sue
Patten, Jamie Wallen and Linda Taylor, it will be
so exciting meeting and learning from these icons
of the quilting world.

I must admit I am a nervous flyer and feel a little
trepidation about being so far from the family, after all, it is half way
across the world, but I know
I will have the best time ever.

I will definitely be taking lots of photos and will probably bore
you all with the details when I get back.

So its back to packing and washing and double checking
I have everything, its so hard to think of what you will need and
I'm not good at packing lightly, but I will force myself, as I know I will probably be sitting on my case 
to close it for the return trip.


Happy Quilting!!

Mandy
