Life and Houston part 2

Hi ya! Sorry I missed last week and the week before. The virus had me taking care of things such as having my classes canceled through June. I had to do a little regrouping as I purchased TONS of Valdani thread to get me through a year of teaching. I had a big sale that I was going to share with you last week and then poof, we lost the internet for 15 hours because someone on the road construction crew decided that cutting a major fiber optic line was a good thing to do when everyone is staying home. Insert eye roll.

The thread sale came and went and life is going on. David is considered "essential" at his work on aircraft at the Department of Defense. Any given day he is around 300+ people and shares a work truck with 3 other fellas. For the first time in 30 years of him working at this job he loves, I saw him having anxiety and dread about going to work. Let's just say some people are nuts and there is no talking sense to them as they live in their own little world and put their head in the sand. We will just leave it at that. I got laid off ten years ago with the housing market crash, so working from home and being home is no big deal to me. Home is my safe and happy place and I'm grateful for the internet connecting me to friends all around the country and the world.

So speaking of connecting us together, let's move on to something fun shall we? Here are the rest of my photos from the Houston Quilt Festival. Enjoy and let me know if you have a favorite or two!
























The Sapphire quilt collection was breathtaking.

























I was very honored to once again be a teacher at this festival. I love meeting everyone and sharing a day of play.



Here is the view from the third floor of the convention center. Beautiful isn't it?


While I love teaching here, I decided not to apply for this year, which I had to do last November. I needed a break and now with everything going on, I'm really glad I took the break this year.



Be safe, be well, be smart and know you are loved.

Hugs!
