Houston Festival Begins
The Houston Festival begins tonight with VIP preview night. I thought you may like to see what the George R. Brown convention center looks like and some of the beauty around it.
Walk way near the convention center

Notice the big balloons

George R. Brown Convention Center
I walked around as set up was going on at the convention center for festival. I took pictures of some interesting booths. I had to redo my booth, because as usual the floor plan changes from market to festival.
Busy set up

Glad those are not mine

the Market is Full of Color
As I walked the floor of the market this morning, it seemed the theme for fabric was beautiful color. Enjoy the photos and post your commets.
 Adorable dresses
Colorful skirts

I love this

I wish I had this in my sewing roon, all of it
Need an apron?

Just beautiful

Shannan is a candyland of color

The Moda Dinner in Houston
At every market Moda is gracious and hosts a dinner for all it's customers. My travel friend is a Moda customer so we attend this event together. At each market Moda has a theme, this year at Houston it was western. There was a mechanical bull (sorry but you could not get me near it), country western band and many other interesting attractions.
Some attendees went all out and dressed the part as you will see in some of the photos. My friends and I just put on a hat. Enjoy the pictures.
Big crowd of hungary ladies

 Desert was already on the table
The band was great

 Man on a hourse?
