Home again

after a wonderful Quilters Companion/Travelrite Quilting tour of Canada, USA and Japan. In all 5 weeks away. I have a multitude of photos, and I’m not sure how long its going to take me to sort them all out, so I’ll post photos as and when I can.

Our two tour leaders for the Canada and USA trip Michelle Maher and Michelle Marvig were excellent and on the Japan leg of the journey Michelle Marvig together with Kazuo Yanagawa our Japanese guide were absolutely excellent! Taking us to as many patchwork shops that our wallets would allow. :-)

After a 6 hour flight from Osaka to Singapore, a 3 hour layover then another nearly 10 hour flight to Auckland, I arrived home. Surprisingly I don’t seem to be suffering from jetlag, although after getting to bed at 2am I slept until nearly 12 noon!

I had a very happy event happen while I was away –
My quilt ‘ My Nearly Insane Journey’ won 1st place in the Traditional Bed Quilt made by more than one person. I had this quilt machine quilted by Judi Schon.  The show was the Auckland Festival of Quilts.

Thanks for dropping by
