It is now November, hard to believe. I quilted these table runners last month in my pre-Houston frenzy. This local client had her finger operated on last week, and needed to get them to have them bound before the holidays (hand is now in a cast!). Though it rarely thrills me to have my schedule take the proverbial monkey-wrench, as this and a week in Houston did, there are certain clients I'd do it for any day of the week.
I got to spend time with several great quilters, and meet some others too. The awards ceremony was quite extravagant - guess it should be when nearly 30K is given away to the top 8 winners! I have many photos from the show, but feel a bit overwhelmed about my feelings of the show, the quilts and the judging. At this time, I think I prefer to just leave things in my head, rather than write thoughts here which some might find controversial. Many of my illusions of this show have been busted.
Life is busy now. I came home to a magazine deadline. Fortunately, that was mostly finished before I left. I am getting back to completing the Christmas orders. Looks like I will probably find myself in the same pickle as last year and having no time to make any of my own Xmas presents. I really need to think about these things in March!
