Went to the Colorado Valley Quilt Show in LaGrange today to meet the program chair and see the very nice quilt show - even managed to spend money imagine that...thrift store shopping too for vintage wear or put on a quilt??? tough decision.  Then forced myself to stop at the beautiful quilt store in downtown Bastrop....had to make a purchase there - spreading the wealth as they say.
