We came, we saw , we conquered the Dallas Quilt Show 2009!! And had a lot of fun along the way around all those booths! The DFW Gang met first at Denny's for breakfast (we had 2 visitors which was great!) and then went to the quilt show---we HAD to look at everything, sometimes we were all together and sometimes were were split up, we laughed and we bought several things---what fun we had!!!! I think I was the first one to get too tired to go on! We had a wonderful call from Sheryl, our mutual friend in St Louis and spend a great time visiting with her via the cell phone (what a wonderful invention---it was like she was right there with us!)
I bought mostly FQs for Yellow Brick Roads for Project Linus, but a few for a new project that I hope to work on soon. There were a lot of beautiful things there, but nothing really caught my eye, I'm sure you know what I mean!
Debi made us the best bags to haul our loot in--the picture shows them---the saying is "DFW GANG---Where quilting and friendship go hand in hand." A shout out thanks to Val for helping make the logo. Bestest thanks go to Debi for putting them together. She also had a handmade pincushion and Hershey's kisses for each of us. Another gift bag came from Marje which contained more candy (yum) a scissor fob, fat quarter (green for St Pat's day), lovely shaded green candle (smells good!) and green shamrock confetti---what fun! Thanks Marje!!! We are all ready planning our next get together!
It's great to be a part of a loving group such as this one, we have been through all kinds of "life moments" together and our friendships grow stronger each time---I love you guys!!!!!
Let quilting help you make someone smile!
