I took more pictures of my quilting progress but halfway through the morning I decided they would wait until tomorrow and that's because I'm dying to tell you about the reservations I made this morning. Do you remember where I am going? I may have only mentioned it once or twice...

In exactly 92 days and 20 minutes from typing this sentence I will be landing in Houston to attend International Quilt Festival-Houston !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

While working on my airfare the last couple of days, by taking my time and reading all the little bits and a few extra clicks, I discovered that for the same amount of flier miles, I can travel first class both coming and going. How cool is that?!!! I am pretty sure that USAir also has free baggage checking for first class customers and then I won't have to drag the suitcase(s) thru the airport and I won't have to worry about TSA taking my scissors or other class supplies. I'll just have my purse, my snacks and my hexie project. I am confirmed in seat 2F the whole trip so I won't knock my neighbor with my right elbow while sewing away. Hmm...there doesn't seem to be much food offered on these flights but I think they still have real drinks...anyone know for sure?

Anyone out there going to Houston? What classes are you taking? My first choice classes were 521, 555, 605, 733, 811. I will elaborate on my classes once they are confirmed in a few weeks.

Wish I could go too -- then we could find a tea room somewhere in Houston and have a little afternoon tea party! You're going to have a blast! :)
