Houston Randoms -- and some lines

Continuing with Melly's line challenge. Circles and crosses. It looks somewhat planetary, doesn't it? That wasn't intentional.More circles. I like the effect of the ink skipping. This wouldn't always be desirable, but it's kind of cool. Oh, hello, Lincoln!

A few more snapshots from my Houston trip.

Purchases! Clockwise starting at the scissors: applique scissors from Famore. Lovely weight and blades. Perfect for cutting away layers of tulle or other sheer fabrics in my newest pieces. In the box: stack of 2x2 hand-dyed fabrics. Lots of Janome bobbins. Two sets of fat quarters from Marcia Derse's new fabric lines. I'm completely in love with these fabrics. Old keys. A small hand carved hedgehog and dragon for Claire and Benjamin.

Sarah and I had a delicious dinner at Ninfa's!
The Beneath the Surface artists enjoyed this dessert-apoolza! Yum!
I had salmon before the dessert. We all brought our Beneath the Surface books and passed them around the table for signatures.
Here is the fabulous Marcia Derse. Seriously. I'm gobsmacked!

Your Lincoln reminds me of my Dazy who would keep me company in my studio:

Looks like a great stash. I found some of the Marcia Derse fabrics in Cal. and got a few. Congrats on the new article for QA.
