I’ve had a busy sewing November so far this month. Hubs and I planned to visit the Houston Quilt Festival and we made the trip from our coastal home in Port O’Connor, Texas to Houston.
We ran into Angela Wolf from It’s So Easy on PBS.
I read on Facebook that you should take along a backpack to tote all your goodies so of course, I had to make one.
I loved the Urban Elementz booth. The owner lives in New Braunfels, Texas which is near our home so I like to support our local artists. I picked up the cute giraffe measuring quilt kit. Love those shades!
How cute is THIS? Adorbs!
I made up some mug rugs for my local quilt shop, Scrappy Quilter, that come from Kimberbell’s Holiday and Seasonal Mug Rugs, Vol 1. Jo put them display! Here’s the cardinal.
And here are the gingerbread, pumpkin, and spider. So cute!
Here’s the embroidery display area in the store. They are moving next month to a new place across the street and Jo wants to expand the embroidery offerings and I can’t wait to help her by making more store samples.
I’ve got my Christmas Scenes quilt on the longarm. One mission I had at the Quilt Festival was to visit the Quilt Butler computer folks and get some assistance with the nesting feature to make the quilted rows come out evenly. Mission accomplished! The decals on Elvis are also from Urban Elementz.
And lastly, a coworker’s wife is expecting a baby girl next week so I made her a nursing cape and a couple of bibs.
So that’s what’s been under my needle. What’s been under yours?
Thanks for sharing the Houston Quilt show images. I’ve not been yet but hope to one day get over there. We are state neighbors!
Cool! Some of my friends went. I live in Houston. I need to check out sometime!
