Yay RIcky

It's not a great picture, but here is Ricky Tims with his award winning quilt in the winners circle. He was sooooo thrilled it was really sweet. Nice to know it's not something you ever get used to :) Argh!!! I am trying to layout my posts but blogger really won't let me. You'll just have to pretend there is nice layout, OK :)

Quilt show in progress

Last night when we went to the winners circle we took a look at how the stands are coming along for the show. Some of these have stayed put from the market but a lot have been taken down and new ones have gone up. It's a lot of work to do in two days.

I kinda like the chaos before the show, but by the time we got a picture it looks pretty much normal as you can see. I wonder if they have little tractors here like the do in Birmingham to clean up the mess from unpacking.

Am I back?

Well long time no see. Between blogger being new and improved (also known as unusable) my phone having a hard time and now very poor net access in Houston, blogging has not been easy. This will have to be a short post as the only way to get net access involves holding a heavy laptop in a very painful position.

Still I am in Houston and I have to share a couple of photos from last night. This is Brigit collecting her prize at the awards show. How cool is this? She came to my class in Sitges as well as wining loads of prizes there. It was amazing to not only see her again but to see her in this position. Her quilt is really amazing and does entirely deserve the awards. I was really pleased with this class actually as several of the quilts I thought were amazing collected awards.

Anyway I wasn't kidding, this is really uncomfortable so I will leave this here.
