This year we incorporated a lot what some call "glo-molds" into our holiday wreaths. This was a particularly fun wreath and will have a new home when it gets auctioned off soon in Round Top to benefit the Historical Society. Thanks Elizabeth for letting us participate.

Leon Collins

Today I met Leon Collins, a folk artist, a character, a nice man. The most fascinating thing about Leon is that he creates art with his 20 year old daughter! He does some pieces, she does some pieces and some are a collaborative effort. I came back to the store with 14 pieces.

it will be here before you know it

HEY, i apologize!!

To my thousands, possibly millions of followers and fans, I can only apologize for being a slacker when it comes to blogging! Have I lost my touch, or am I losing my mind??!! The approaching holidays are having a strange effect on me.

International Quilt Show

Texas Trash at the Quilt Show, hmmm sounds like a oxymoron, however you spell that, just didn't seem like the two would go together. Well it turns out that quilters love anything handmade and appreciate whimsical and "different" stuff!! So to sum it up, we loved the people and the show AND alot of trash went to new homes and gardens. A perfect weekend.
