San Antonio

As you all know, I have been traveling to talk about my experience with MS and the new medication I am taking.  Last week found me in San Antonio, Texas, a place Greg and I have always wanted to visit.  We never have much free time when I travel--it is business after all, but we usually try to at least see one thing wherever we are.  San Antonio brought the Riverwalk and the Alamo.

Isn't this just so peaceful looking?  It is a beautiful area to spend time.  We rode the riverboat so we got to see lots of the area with little walking!

Here's proof I was actually there.  This picture does not tell you how hot it was. 101 degrees.  Oppressive to say the least.  However, we had a wonderful time and I got to meet some awesome people.  Not that anyone would want MS, but it has brought me to a place in my life I never expected to be.  I guess it goes to prove there is always something good if you look for it.
I actually was hoping to be able to post a fun picture.  Remember the lobster car?  Greg and I were walking down to street to the Alamo.  Along came a car with a giant Red Bull can on the back.  I could just see it in my mind.  I could have a series of weird cars I find on my trips.  However, the car was driving in traffic, not parked, my camera was in my purse, not in my hand, and I was sweating profusely.  No picture, no series.

How about some quilts?

Judith put this together with some fun girls shopping fabric.

We've got shoes, sunglasses, shopping bags and more.

Karen quilted this one with a great circle fabric in shades of pink.

You may be able to tell this is a Shelly special.  Flannel in bright colors for a girl or boy.

And of course, nothing better than a yellow flannel dot for the back.

Pink and Chocolate are still a popular choice for girls.  This rail fence takes on a graphic look with the placement of the pink strips.

Nan used a perfect backing and quilted this with an loop design.  I am sure there is a technical name for it, but I have no clue what it is!

Deb put together this fun quilt.  I gave her some random fabric and this is what she came up with.  I love the way it turned out.

Shannon quilted her magic into this quilt and used a sweet pink and orange backing.

I had an assortment of half-square triangles that I gave to Teresa and asked her to come up with something.  This is the result.  Just goes to show we have a talented group who are always willing to help.

Sandy gave the quilt the finishing touch with lollipop quilting and a girly backing.

I've got more quilts to show you in the next few days.  I am actually home this week--no traveling--so I will have a chance to post the latest quilts.  Check back!
