Misses and . . . Misses

I was sure I'm meet Debra and Rian in Houston. Amy, Vicki and I were exactly where we were told to be . . . and waited for a half hour or so. It was great to meet Amy and Vicki (along with Mr. Calico Cat and Vicki's mom). Still no Debra; no Rian; no entourage. Lots of time standing in front of Debra's quilt for the Hoffman Challenge, Little Flower Urchins. No photo of Debra with her quilt, or chance to finally meet Debra.

I was sure I'd catch up with Dorothy, AKA Doro, a quilting forum member I've known for a while and met earlier this year in North Carolina. Although we didn't have a plan, I knew exactly where to find her (in one of the vendor booths), but got mixed up on when and missed her. Sorry, Doro.

I was sure I didn't need to make a plan to meet Maggie. Her flamboyant style makes her easy to spot in any crowd. Except I never did spot her and I went to lunch with a friend and missed her Meet the Designer session. This is Welcome to My Garden, her design for the Bernina Fashion Show which I also attended. I was confident I'd see her there, too. But I missed her.

I'm pretty sure that I'll catch up with Maggie at Spring Festival in Chicago . . . we're already planning for it ;-)

I did manage one meeting that was a hit–not a miss–with another quilting forum member, Jonna (JDO). We shared some shopping show & tell and a great meal at the original Ninfa's. I'm still craving Tex-Mex.

Can you believe that we did not have any Tex-Mex? My husband does not care for it. But in the past I have made him get a quesadilla - it is just a grilled cheese, right?

We ate "real" Italian, & Pizza - aka "faux" Italian & went to a nice Buffet (in addition to your run of the mill IHOP experiences.)

7:15 a.m. & I'm talking about food...

I was pretty bummed that I didn't meet you either. I never expected the dinner to take as long as it did beforehand. I wish I had had a picture of you so I could have watched for you in the crowds. But, I am glad you got to see my Little Flower Urchins quilt.

Then, there's always next year!

I guess we should have used those cell phone numbers we exchanged ;-)

Debra Dixon said...

Rian and I called you on Friday--maybe you were in class. Oh well, another year, maybe.

I was in class on Friday . . . with the Thermofax machine that caught on fire ;-)
