Week 26 Stash Report

More than fabrics in or out this week, what I'm most excited about is the book I picked up this week.

Thursday evening my mom and I headed up to the North side of town to see Cherri House and Lizzy House present at It's A Stitch. It was so wonderful to hear Cherri talk of her quilting inspiration and Lizzy talk of how she got her start in fabric design. I also got to finally meet Dianne face-to-face.

Even though we got home late, and I had to be up early the next morning, I spent some time Thursday night flipping through Cherri's book City Quilts. The quilts are amazing... the information on quilting and inspiration are fabulous... but my favorite part of the book is the love for Houston!

Yes - Houston is hot and humid, we have hideous traffic and all the other problems of a major city, but looking at the city through Cherri's book and her quilts was an amazing experience. I'm sure I'll be looking at our city in a new way.
