International Quilt Festival Houston 2008

Here we are!!!
We actually both got into a Make It University Workshop TOGETHER! Virginia is on the left and I'm on the right. You have to put your name in the jar in advance and then you have to be present 15 min. before the class starts to see if they call your name. What are the chances we would BOTH get in!!! Well...we did!!! Yeah us! We signed up for Pokey Bolton's class. She is editor of Cloth, Paper, Scissors and Quilting Arts Magazine. She is quite lively. ha! And to do all she does...that's a good thing.
Below she is showing one of Virginia's "spreads" that she made in the class. Pokey liked it! I bet it shows up on the Quilting Arts blog... you can get there by clicking on her name the first time it appears in this post. She has a lot of pictures from Quilt Festival there, too.

Here is Lisa Engelbrecht writing my name! She painted them on canvas in caligraphy for us .... just a little give away.

I'll put up more pictures soon.... maybe even later today. I simply must work on the card deck for awhile. And Silver Bella is almost upon me..... I will BE THERE in less than two weeks!!!!!!

Happy Halloween!

How cool is that! I met Pokey Bolton at a PBS meeting last year (she has a show, as you probably know) and she made us little coffee cup quilted covers. I'd love to take a class from her, even though I don't stituch! And wow -- all that and then SB in a couple! This sounds wonderful!
