Slacker

The Gaylord Texan Convention Center in Dallas is featuring Alice in Wonderland this summer - what a great sand sculpture!






Not much sewing going on here (but I did visit three quilt shops on Saturday).  All I have to show for two weeks is one block.  This is the progress on my square-in-square blocks.  Still pondering my options.

Were the shops in Dallas? If so, fill me in, so I can visit them when I go visit my sis in Dallas. The sand sculptures are amazing! WOW! I am not getting much done either! Need to put the binding on a quilt, but it might have to wait until after the 4th!

One of the shops was in Arlington (just south of DFW) - Lone Star House of Quilting. If you like repros, you'll love the shop. Great samples and friendly service.

I can't imagine how someone can make such detailed sand sculptures. Thanks for sharing.

Yes, but it's a fabulous block isn't it! Progress is progress, I say don't knock it, celebrate it~! Have some Pie, or a parfait ~ everyone loves a parfait!

I have taken quite an interest in Alice In Wonderland this year. I have printed out several pictures from old coloring books that I would like to embroider. The sand sculptures are very, very interesting. A talented person did those.

Great sand sculptures but, please, more about the quilt shops. I will be in Texas in early October for work and planned my flight (and am arriving a day early) just to go to Lone Star House of Quilts!
