Where has November gone?

Dear, very patient, Reader,

I apologise most humbly for my extended absence. I have been flying!

I have been home for 2 weeks and I think I am finally starting to feel normal. It has taken a week for my brain to catch up with my body!  I then fell head first into a big black hole!  I couldn't get out of my own way!

Hopefully energy has returned and will stay!
Sunrise over Texas!

I had my amazing trip to North America. I couldn't blog from there because my internet connection was too slow - in fact it was so slow I couldn't even use Skype successfully (I could see but not hear! DH and I had to hold up hand written notes to the camera to communicate)!

The reason for my trip was to see my quilts hanging in Lisa Walton's exhibition at The International Quilt Festive, in Houston. 

What an amazing feeling see "Blackbirds" hanging in the same space as some of the most amazing quilts I have ever seen.

This is part of the market at the Festival! There were 20 aisles of vendors! It was huge - much bigger than I could have ever imagined.

Needless to say, I spent way too much but I enjoyed every minute of it!  I walked miles in the Convention Centre.  I was there for the full 5 days and I think I managed to see everything.

This is a view of the exhibition area, just to give you an idea of the scale of the place.  The beige wall in the center distance is the wall that divides the exhibition space from the Market!  There were over 1500 quilts diplayed.

Once I sort my photos out I'll post some of them to the blog.
