In Houston for Quilt Market

I'm sorry I did not get to publishing last evening.  There were issues with our flight and we changed planes and arrived here later than expected. 

I got a great candid photo of Rob Krieger, the owner of Checker Distributor, yesterday at Detroit Metro Airport.

I'm not sure if he dropped a stitch or was lost in the pearl one knit two sequence...but he looked a little frustrated with his needlework.

In the end it looks like he got it figured out!!  
(these photos may not have been as "candid" as I may have suggested)
Our decent into Houston was beautiful.
I'm telling you, we got the grand welcoming at our hotel room.  Will you just look at this....and it is in purple and green too....the IHAN ® colors :)
I'm not sure if the Hilton decorates everyone's room in the colors of their company....but they sure took great care of me :)  Or was that dear friend, Karin?  Hmmmmm...she did arrive a few hours before we did....but she told me she didn't do it so I'm still thinking the Hilton provides some incredible services :)
And the bathroom too!!!  What a fun and wonderful surprise.
Oh yeah...and a custom pillow case too....I'm living the life of luxury for sure :)

Today was School House and I took over 400 photos.  The camera I brought began acting up a little so Mr. McSteamy has express shipped the "good" camera and the photos tomorrow will be much better.

Unfortunately I'm too tired to post about School House today....I know, I know....booo hisss....I'm sorry...really.  I need to hit the hay and I'll get back tomorrow evening a bit earlier and I'll post the "goods."

Tired Smiles,
