Going on a Quilting Trip


I am planning my escape to a land where there are no monkeys, the pillows stay on the bed, and the socks are not on the ceiling fan. I am going to Houston to visit my good friend Kathy. Mamala and I will be leaving tomorrow morning. We will spend all day at the International Quilt Show. I hope to get a lot done on that quilt up there in the picture. Just think, three days of of uninterrupted quilting, quilt shopping, and adult conversation. Oh the joy of it. I am so happy my head might explode.
I'll be back on Friday in time for trick or treating. Why don't you visit some of the blogs I dig while I'm gone. The list is right over there on the sidebar.

  1. Have a safe trip and be careful. Are you leaving UNCLE Debbi at home with the boys? Or is it MR Debbi? (I can't decide what to call by husband; sometime I call him "My Beloved" (tongue in cheek), sometimes Hubby, sometimes Eddie. I used to call him "Chief" since he's Indian, but friends always took that wrong, so I don't know what to call him; oops, sorry, did I get off topic, or what??????)
    Your double wedding ring quilt is beautiful, that and Dresden Plate are my two favorite patterns!

  2. Here's hoping there are no wayward pillows or socks on your quilting trip!

  7. Sounds like a heavenly trip! You'll be getting back when I'm getting ready to roll out to MIL's. When do I get MY break from kids anyway? Manly man is going to have his hands full while you're gone.

  12. Well, I wouldn't really blame you if once you get that far, you can't bring yourself to return to an uncivilized land again. If you keep running, give us a holler so we know you're all right. Somewhere out there! You'll actually probably get bored with no mischief!
