And So It Begins

And so it begins, or at least it continues.  I started this little tree block in New York when I went to visit Victoria.

Didn't it turn out cute?  It is based on this block from an antique quilt Victoria bought in Houston two years ago.

And yes I was with her when she bought it.  I have always LOVED this quilt. I thought about how to "accidentally" pack it in my bag to come home with me.  But truthfully, I love V more than I love this quilt and I can just make myself one.  So I am!!!

Have a great weekend and Happy Sewing!

My New York Trip

 After getting up well before the crack of dawn and then nearly missing my flight on Friday morning (my flight left Austin at 6:30 am and I was the last one to board after 6:15 am), I did make it to New York to see my fabulous friend Victoria.  We had a great time!!!
We ate fabulous food,saw an amazing play,shopped at the City Quilter, laughed so hard we nearly wet out pants on the street (and not one person passing by blinked an eye at us!).  Rumor has it, we were laughing like this because I had accidentally grabbed her boob.  Well, I did!  And I gotta tell ya it ain't that big!

We even managed to get a little sewing in.  Yipee!

Have no doubts that Victoria is absolutely the "Hostess with the Mostess"!  And if she ever invites you to New York City, you are gonna what to say yes!  However, just keep one thing in mind, that guest bed at her house has my name on it!
Thank you V for a truly amazing time!
I'm looking forward to your visit to Texas in the fall!
