My favorite exhibit at the International Quilt Show in Houston last fall was the Eye of the Quilter:  Inspiration.  I think it has had a lot to do with my interest in this blog.  I am enjoying showing some of my work, but I tend to forget that the photography we are doing is part of the art.  Below, I have my photograph taken at the International Quilt Study Center in Lincoln, Nebraska.  I have also included some of my other favorites.

San Antonio with In Young and Jane

In Young took all these pictures.  Jane accompanied us to San Antonion and kept us laughing with her indomitable energy.  We had Mexican Food in this wonderful restaurant and then browsed in the "Tienda"  Mexican Markets afterwards. 

Donkeys with guitars in their backs.  Very handy.
\Pinatas in the restaurant.

Mariachis sing "Beso mi Mucho"  (Kiss me a lot)


Jane and In Young give us the V sign.
