Eating and dining in Houston plus a few quilts and a workshop too.

Thurs was very busy with no time to blog so here are Tracy and I meeting up with friends at the cafe on Discovery Green and enjoying Tex Mex with Carolyn Forster a short distance away from the hotel. No cabs involved in the partaking of this meal which was accompanied by wine and cocktails, A very  chatty night.

My fabrics for the workshop

A Charm of Flowers by Felicia Nakazawa

Detail - the quilt is simply pieced with these overlaid
appliqued flowers -very effective

I loved this "Twisted" exhibit by Mary Kerr who had incorporated vintage scraps into a
modern settng and the asked longarmers to quilt the tops in accordance with a modern
aesthetic. Tracy was entranced and bought the book.

There seems to be a lot of eating, drinking and socialising on this trip. It all looks good to me and I am really enjoying sharing your trip.
