Ok guys. I'm here in Houston at the International Quilt Show. I believe it's my seventh year and it still amazes me. I get to rub elbows with the best of the best. I recognize faces that I see every year and in the quilting mags. I was on the airplane with Sharon Shamber. I was in the booths with Pat Blair and Anna Buzzalino. All this creativity is making me want to go home and get back to quilting.. and painting...and making cool stuff..The quilts on display are amazing as usual and they continue to raise the bar.  The classes are also amazing. I took a beading class with Nancy Eha- here's my beaded dragonfly.Way cool.

I also took a two day class with Esterita Austin on how she does her portraits. I didn't finish mine but here it how much I got done. Will work more on it when I return home.

Today I had a photoshop class with David Taylor. My daughter is going to be very happy when I can photoshop my own photos and she doesn't have to. Love you, Casey, and thanks in advance. Tomorrow I have a class with Mary Ellen Kranz called Photos + Words + fabric = Poster Quilt. Should be interesting. I'll keep you informed.

Until then, remember.....It's all about the quilts.
