Back in the USA

lunchtime restaurant,

Great to be in Houston again for the Quilt Show. Here we are adjusting to the different time scale. We've had a lovely day today starting with an 11am lunch at Fago de Chao a Brazilian ranchero restaurant with spit roasted meats and wonderful salads then on to the Historic Society's collection of transported buildings. Connie, our guide. led us knowledgeably around four of them. There were some wonderful old quilts and exquisite quilting but we were not allowed to take photos inside so as consolation Connie took a picture of our group outside a planked cabin dating from 1837. Then onto JoAnn's where I bought all I needed for classes. We didn't find Walmart but stocked up with supplies from a supermarket with a strong Mexican influence which I loved with many happy memories of that country and its people. Back to the hotel for a margarita in the bar and G&T in J&S's room with snacks fom the supermarket foray. A great day and now in the lobby catching up with the wider world online.
