A Few Pictures and BIG NEWS!!!

Just a quick post to share a few pictures for now. Above is one of the Quilt Shop Hop quilts. This one was at Honey Bee Quilts in Austin. Each store did their own version of this quilt. It was designed by a shop owner here in San Antonio, Terry Soll of Creative Sewing Center. Each year a different shop designs the quilt.

I mentioned getting gas & eating. Oh, wait, no, that's not it, is it? Or maybe it is! LOL! This was where we ate in Buda---pronounced Byuda, not like Buddha, in case you wondered. I'll have to find a picture of the shop in Buda. It looked SO little and we said, "Well, we won't spend much time here." Oh, how wrong we were. They had so much packed into such a small store and it was organized so you could move around. I don't know how they did it. After that we drove around the block (Buda is a tiny town so we could have walked) to eat at this Mexican Restaurant called Garda's. Well, that's what we THOUGHT the sign said. We'd never heard the name Garda. I joked that it was a female guard in Spanish. Inside we saw the menu & realized it was Garcia's, but we'll always call it Garda's! The BEST Mexican food. We would drive back just to eat there. And the waitress was so helpful.

Here we are after eating a yummy full meal. Look at all that hair on Kathy's head! Do you remember that it wasn't long ago that she had no hair after chemo? And, see, Danette is tiny! The ribbons we have on are for First Time Shop Hoppers. Kathy also bought us a Shop Hop pin & a Breast Cancer Awareness pin. Yes, this picture is "Team Kathy" but this weekend we got to be "Team Quilty!" And it was FAR better than having to watch Kathy endure chemo and surgery and blood transfusions. Thank you Lord for a GOOD time with friends!

We interrupt this post to bring you an important announcement: Kathy just got a call that she WON a BASKET full of prizes from one of the shops in San Antonio! We can't wait to see what's inside! 

Life must go on, so I will stop now. Look for more updates soon!
