In my first hour at the Houston International Quilt Festival, I joined Monika who was on our tour two years ago in the bar for a quick chat. I went to the bar to get my drink and ran into Marilyn, a wonderful quilter and gorgeous person who I sat at a table with for 5 days in Pam Holland’s class at Empty Spools, Asilomar in Feb 2014. She introduced me to Noriko, who is famous in our world.
Then while waiting in line to get into Winners Circle, who should be standing next to me but Sara, who I’ve shared 5-day workshops with several times at Quilting Adventures in New Braunfels, Texas!
When I warned the row behind me at Winners Circle that they were surrounded by Australians, who should stand up and give me a hug but Connie, a quilter I also met at Asilomar! Connie won two ‘Honorable Mentions’ for her quilts this year.
I wonder who I’ll catch up with today?
