Our time has come.

Our time in Marfa has drawn to a close. We now have a three hour drive back to Midland to drop off my husband at the airport, then Beatrice and I start our drive back to NYC. 

I'm over stimulated and antsy to start creating, while my ideas are fresh. 

Hope to be home Wednesday night! 

I hope you enjoyed the photos of this little vacation. I'm sorry they are not of quilts, but hope that the color and light inspires you just the same.

Need to create.

I may not be getting to sew, but I am thoroughly inspired by just the visual of this town. 

Enjoy viewing.
Random things around Marfa that caught my eye... So far.

Done in Midland!

Midland, Texas!  We are having such a great road trip! We have seen so much of this huge state, it's all been very interesting.  

We travelled to Dripping Springs to Valli & Kim quilt shop, out for BBQ at the Salt Lick,  then onto Wimberley, Blanco area, Before heading on to Midland. 

Yes, it is flat! And hot! 108 when we drove in, but I really do not mind the heat.

I got quite a chuckle when I looked out of my hotel window and saw all the white trucks! 

A workshop and two lectures later, the Midland Quikters gave me all these signature blocks for my quilt! Yes, you can still send me blocks! Link in my side bar for instructions. I have not had much time to work on them, but I will eventually and all my memories will be in my quilt. 

This is their Raffle quilt! Which is beautiful!!! Becky even made a mini version, that will be given to the person who sells the most raffle tickets! Wow! Isn't it darling? 
I met many wonderful women on this trip, and here in Midland, and I'm so pleased they let me come to play! Thank you ladies! 

I swung by Barnes & Noble and look what I found!! The first issue of Simply Moderne is out! And what a treat for the eyes, it is! So many beautiful projects inside, including a few of my own that I did not expect to see in the magazine! 
Below is my Lost and Found in Translation quilt. Above is double Edged Love! 

I have a pattern in the magazine as well! 
So go check it out! And see all the lovely eye candy quilts! 

Last night I also found out that my quilt, "Farm Girl" was accepted into Houston International Quilt Festival! I'm honored and happy that my quilt will be shown.  I'll see you in Houston! I'll be there for market and festival! 

For now, my feet are up, and we are relaxing before driving to Bandera, TX tomorrow!  I'm off with Beatrice to play for a few days (giddy up, pardner) before heading to Lakeview and Houston guilds next week!
