I went to Houston for Quilt Festival planning to see my quilting partner Gail Stepanek but she had to cancel her plans at the last minute - darn! My sister Kathy made it to the show so I had company after all. Gail and I had two quilts there and we are happy that My Brunette Whig won a third place ribbon. Shopping is always fun there and I made a big purchase - a pair of CraftOptics glasses which are amazing! Since I love lots of close quilting and detail they are going to be very useful.

It's heartwarming to be at the show and see quilting friends do well:
Kris Vierra won the Pfaff Master Award for Machine Artistry
My fellow Kansans did well:
Susan Stewart won The Superior Threads Master Award for Machine Artistry:
And Janet Stone won Best of Show!
In November and December I took time off from quilting to do some painting and re-arranging in my house.
New paint, new rug:
New Kitty Shoes:
New antique clock. I love old clocks.
I ordered a book from Amazon and it came from England in this Royal Mail bag:
I worked on some Christmas gifts but can't post pictures of most of them before Christmas.
This little pincushion I made for my bee's Christmas party gift exchange. How did we ever get by before they invented glue guns?
I made a little, really little wholecloth quilt. It's less than 12 inches square, I plan to enter it in my guild show this June.
