One of the most fun times with family was giving Austin his Star Wars quilt. He and his mom both loved it.

You might not believe me when I tell you that LJ, at nearly 14 months, is very opinionated!
On Saturday (I didn't attend QuiltCon that day), we drove to Blanco, Texas, for an arranged meeting at a restaurant with long-time Iowa friends we hadn't seen for at least 15 years. Greg and Patti moved permanently to Texas last year where they are enjoying retirement near their two sons and families.

Greg (left) and Dan were close friends who attended and graduated in 1970 from Mason City High School (Iowa) high school.

I came to know Greg and Patti through Dan, and we were in their 1973 wedding. Patti and I were both pregnant with our firsts at Christmas, 1975. Blaming our conditions on our spouses, we pointed accusing fingers at them.
Oh, my bouncing hair!
This year, their Jason and our Jill will be 39 years old!
All in all, this was a very exiting trip to Texas. What with QuiltCon, spending time with family, meeting up with old friends, topped by a first time meet-up with Karen in Pensacola as we were on our way home, that one week was packed with fun! And completely heart-warming. Linda
