Austin skyline

Isn't the Austin skyline lovely? I just love living here. Not too big, not too small. It can stop growing as far as I'm concerned. Or at least slow down.

Because we have hours and hours of gridlock traffic because the suburb towns and developers were allowed to grow way too fast outside town, leaving inside town not developed enough to handle the commute traffic.

Fortunately, we were not in that traffic. We were flying by, going into the city in 5 oclock traffic. We didn't hit traffic until just before we exited the freeway.

And, that's all the pictures I have from last night's volleyball game. Once we got there, I wasn't really in the mood to take pictures.


Tomorrow there are two quilt shows. One is local, at the Dell Diamond in Round Rock Texas. We go to this show every year. It's a good show and we enjoy it a lot. Smallish, but a very talented group of quilters. This year, we're taking a friend of Rob's; an older lady that used to work at his office is going with us to see the quilts and meet Rob's family. Should be fun. She's not a quilter, but I do have several of her sewing/knitting things. That knitting box on legs that I just refinished came from her, as are some cookbooks and an antique crazy quilt that I haven't done anything with (because I'm intimidated as heck by it).

The second show is the Men Quilt, Too show, here on the internet. I'm going to have a quilt in the show and am going to post links from here to get you guys to the show so you can vote. Please take the time to vote. I'd love to win, but even if I don't, I want the decision to be based on lots of voters and not just people from one blog that has a thousand followers (yes, there is one). I'll post a short bio tomorrow and then every day of the show, I want to showcase a quilt from my collection; either one I made or one I own. So, that's going to fill the posts for the next couple of weeks.

Okay, so that's it for me today. Two quilt shows to look forward to. We're trying to fix up a play date for Sydney and a friend. We are so desperate for her to have friends. We will drive you to the movies. We will pay for both of you to get in. We will fill you up with candy and junk. Just, please make a friend that you respect enough to keep them. Please.


Okay, so that's it for me. Stay tuned. Remember, you vote in Men Quilt, Too through email, so you can vote, your husband can vote, your kids can vote, your dear Aunt Sally can vote.

Good luck in the show...although, I don't think you will much need luck...you have the talent to overshadow any luck! Have fun this weekend!!
