Going to Houston!!!

I've been a little negligent of my poor blog! Have gotten several little projects either finished or on the way to being. I haven't been able to download pics of what I have done, but will have them next writing. And my big news right now is that I am going to Houston for the International Quilt Festival....I plan to "be seen on the Quilt Scene"!! (This is a phrase I needed to put in my blog, print off and drop in a box at the Quilting Arts booth...#1244...for a drawing of all kinds of stuff!) I have never been before so am excited to see what it's all about. Two of my studio Q buds and I are rooming together...going on a bus from Fort Worth Thursday and will be home late Saturday. Woohoo!!! Will have much to write about then, I hope!!

And here are a few more pics of our wonderful Northern trip!! After we left Alaska, we planned to do a repeat drive down the Alcan Highway...very much like what we had seen 45 years ago, but much better road, and more populated areas. We also wanted to visit the Canadian Rockies, Banff and Jasper Parks....very beautiful and we had great weather. I think the Canadian Rockies look even more rugged than the USA Rockies.

Lake Louise from a distance; we took a tram ride overlooking the valley.

One of the many reflecting lakes in Jasper Park. We liked Jasper even better than Banff because it doesn't seem to be as well known, therefore, not as crowded or "touristy".


  1. wooohoooo is right~!~ i'm sure that you are going to have a blast and can't wait to hear all about it.
