Houston Quilt Festival. And boy did we have fun. We had been planning the trip for almost 3 years, and it lived up to all our expectations.
On this day 12 months ago, my DH went to the AFL Grand Final, to watch his team play. While he came home disappointed, none the less, he followed on over to the states, where l caught up with him after Houston.
Today, 12 months on from that disappointment, he is back again at the MCG, to see if his team can this year win the grand final. Its 44 years since they have won, so who knows! Go The Saints!!
Today, 12 months on, l am not on a plane for another Big American Adventure.
But in 5 weeks l will be!!! For Our Big Texas Adventure.
During a phone conversation with Di Ford recently, she mentioned that she and her partner were returning to Houston for a short visit. God and the heavens aligned, and within 2 days DH and l had our flights and accommodation booked. We're going too!!!! And that's what's caused my sleepless nights. Never in my dreams did l imagine that l would revisit Houston so soon!!!! And my mind has been spinning with memories of what we saw and experienced last year. Quilters Heaven!!! I've been making a list and checking it twice. There is a project that l need to buy for, but that's a story for another day.
Then from the 4th till the 7th November, l will be cruising the isles of the festival. l plan to meet up with some friends l met last year, shop at shops l shopped at last year,and see wonderful quilts and displays. l can't wait to cruise the isles with Di. Will you be there?
Thanks for visiting, and maybe we'll be seeing ya!!!And get to say G'day !!
Over the next few weeks, l am going to revisit those memories of last year. Want to come along??
Update. IT'S A DRAW!! they will have a Grand Final Replay next saturday.
There has only been 2 drawn grand finals in the history of the game. Interestingly the last one was in 1977, and Collingwood also played in that game. They lost that replay grand final by 27points. Lets hope History can repeat its self. GO SAINTS!!!
