Lazy day in Houston

We arrived a day early with the thought of seeing some of the city and maybe taking a city tour, well that didn't exactly work out. However we did have a fun day. We had breakfast, shopped a little bit, had a glass of wine and then had linner (lunch and dinner combined).

Marilyn looked on line to see if any of Guy Fieri of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives had visited any places close by. Sure enough she found this......

Lankford Grocery a little old house in the middle of a neighborhood. They only serve breakfast and dinner and close at 3:00, which explains why we had Linner. Marilyn had a burger and onion rings and I had tortilla soup, both we great..

When we got back, we had another glass of wine and hung out waiting for Sample Spree (more about that later).

In the mean time......

Houston - We have landed

You know it's going to be a good trip when you get in the taxi cab line at the airport and see all yellow cabs except for this one.......

Yup......we had a lime green cab.

We check in this morning and got our tote bag.

Shouldn't take long to fill it tonight at sample spree.

I’m Leaving on an Airplane

Yippee!!!!!  This morning Marilyn and I are leaving for Fall Quilt Market in Houston.  We’ve been to Spring Market a few time but this is our first time going to Houston.  We have been planning this for a year and it’s finally time. 

In the mean while, I have been very neglectful of my blog.  As I’ve mentioned before I now have a new floor in my sewing studio (along with the rest of the house).  For those of you that have been through the trauma of moving everything out of a room, finding a temporary place for it, and then putting it all back, I’m sure you’ll understand.  Next week, I’ll post pictures, so you can see just how beautiful my floors are now. 

I also have been hard at work getting a new pattern ready for publishing.  It’s now finished and will be available on my website soon.  Here’s a sneak peak of the front and back.

Hopefully I will be able to post some picture from Market over the next few days.  I have a new iPad and I think I know how to blog with it.  We’ll see.

Elizabeth’s Letty’s Bag

My daughter-in-law Maureen is a great cheerleader for my pattern business (love you Maureen) and a friend of hers sent me this email yesterday. 

Hi Robin,

I work at Intel like Maureen.  You had stopped by with Maureen to one of the foster quilt-making sessions that I was at.  I liked your bag and finally made one.  A picture is attached.  It's done except for putting the plastic insert in the bottom.

I enjoy following your blog to see how other people's bags turned out and the design wall Monday feature is fun.  I wish my design wall changed more often.


Here’s Elizabeth’s great looking bag.  Thank you for sharing.

ESQuilts2 Enjoy,

A Halloween Letty’s Bag

My friend Bobbe Hotz sent me this email.

“Dorene Locke and Lois Gallagher taught a class at Norwalk Vac and Sew today.  Jan Foss shared her Letty Halloween bag. “

Norwalk Vacuum+Sewing is a local business that teaches my Letty’s Bag pattern.  If you visit them be sure to say hello to Rita for me.

I was featured on SewCalGal

What a trilled for me to be featured on SewCalGal’s Btog

Please take a few minutes to check it out here.   After you’ve read the great article about “ME”, spend some time checking out what else she has to offer.  She is leading the way in using the internet to promote quilting, reviewing products and featuring quilters and their websites. 

These pictures have absolutely nothing to do with SewCalGal’s article but what’s a Blog post with out pictures?

Busy, Busy, Busy

I have been a very busy girl the last couple of weeks.  To my loyal followers, I am so sorry that I’ve been out of touch.  Life is still going to be crazy for the remainder of the month but I’ll try to check in with all of you as best I can. 

Starting about two weeks ago, Marilyn and I headed to San Diego for a day of sewing and visiting with Sew Cal Gal.  She is very active blogger, dedicated to promoting quilting.   We met at a wonderful location with her and several of her friends.  It was hard to focus with a gorgeous view like this.


Next it was time to get ready for our Two Wacky Women fall retreat.   What a great group.  Check them out.


We had a great time and I even had time to make a section of a Hunter’s Star. 


You can’t believe how easy it was.  This piece is about 19 inches square.  I can’t wait to get back to working on it but for now it will have to wait.

Right after I got back from the TWW retreat, it was time to head to the local mountains, Big Bear Lake, to set up shop for a couple of days to sell fabric and “stuff” as well as teach a few small projects.  I just got back yesterday and now it’s time to move on to the next thing.

Today Marilyn and I are setting up for the Los Angeles county Quilters Guild quilt show which starts tomorrow.  The show is being held at the Ritz Gardens, 11201 First Ave., Whittier, CA.  It will be open Friday 9:00 am to 6:00 pm and again on Saturday 8:00 am – 3:00 pm.  If you’re coming to the show, please stop  by and say hello.  My friend Rob will be working the booth with me. 

Oh, and on top of everything else, I’m in the middle of getting new wood floors installed throughout my house.  What a mess, but it’s going to look great. 

Stay tuned for more updates on what’s going on in my busy life.
