Houston festival: Last Day

The contents of our packed "stuff", minus 2 bags!
Scary, isn't it?!

We had to check out early from the hotel as we were teaching a workshop and both had an Open Studio session this afternoon.  It gave us incentive to get things moving early on Sunday.  We had rolling bags stuffed with workshop/Open Studios supplies, so there would be about 25% more stuff on the cart otherwise.

in the "Edges" special exhibition

We finished our time at festival by wandering back through the quilt exhibits and spending time with all the wonderful artwork.  I managed to spend some bucks at the Superior Threads booth.  I do love Superior thread!  In addition I bought 2 wonderful, lightweight shawls that are 80% cashmere and 20% silk.  Both have a gorgeous iridescent weave.  I purchased two heavier pashmina shawls from him last year and he recognized me.
