Today was a "don't leave the house" kind of day and I finished my 3rd Houston garment. We are given fabrics, select our choice of pattern, and wear specific garments on specific days. This really helps with packing and makes us somewhat recognizable as staff. Here are mine:
|Vintage Made Modern by Amy Barickman for RJR, pattern is Gathered Back Tunic by Indygo Junction
|Zen Chic by Brigitte Heitland for Moda, pattern is Contemporary Kimono by Indygo Junction
|Shimmer Wheel by Jennifer Sampou for Robert Kaufman, Contemporary Kimono by Indygo Junction--making a garment with 2.5" strips of fabric was more of a challenge than I anticipated
For fun, I made Lori DeJarnette's latest quilt-a-long, Country Roads Mystery. Find it here.

There's more to do before I take off for Texas next week, house stuff, yard stuff, packing stuff, teaching, and cutting some more handwork for "down" time, not that there is very much of that. Houston is the highlight of my year and I am getting excited already. I'm also taking 2 free motion quilting classes so have to remember to pack the required supplies for those. I'll post when I can so stay tuned.
While I'm gone, my beautiful grand-girl, Stella, will come to town, with her folks--she is being baptized. I'll miss her but her granddaddy hopes to get lots of time with her. We miss her so. She's four and half months old now, and scrumptious!
