Hello! Back From Houston!



Hi, I'm back! What a fantastic trip. I couldn't have had a better time, and I got to enjoy it with my friend, Beth, who lives in Houston and whom I haven't seen for 19 years - since her wedding! However, we seemed to pick back up right where we left off. She and her husband have such a sweet home and a very sweet daughter. That's Beth up there on the left, and me on the right.



I thought I took a lot more pictures of the Quilt Fest than I did, but it was all so overwhelming and exciting. This week, I'll tell you some good stories and break out more photos. I've got business cards and photos of the vendors and some of their great booths to show you.



Here is a bit of my stash. I bought up a number of items I knew I wouldn't see around the quilt shops or easily online. I've got some extra to give as a treat this week, too, so please stop back by and see what I will be passing on to one of you.

I think my most important purchase - to me anyway - was this:



The Martha Stewart Embroidery Design Pack! Now I can offer even more beautiful embroideries and monograms - and you can have them, too, from me in the near future. I can't wait to test some of these out.
.
I've been catching up on the blogs and getting back to work. Now I'm off to get Camille for some after-school activities - including our Pilates class. It's cold and cloudy here right now, and I am SO THANKFUL for such wonderful weather in Houston last week. It made for such a wonderful trip!

Viagra is the medicine that is recommended by doctors worldwide for erectile dysfunction. It is the chemical composition of both forms of this drug and helps to cause erection on stimulation of the penis by inhibiting the enzyme phosphodiesterase type 5 which causes smooth muscle relaxation and a better erection.
