Update from the USA

25 Sep

DSCF0108Hi Everyone,

Well, as you can see by the departure board picture Kevin and I have begun our exciting USA adventure, we are en route to the 2009 Houston Quilt Market being held in two weeks time, but prior to that we are visiting my daughter Samantha and son in law Lance at their home in Wilmington, Delaware, we are very lucky to be able  to stay with them as it means we shall be able to tour around the area visiting all local quilt shops and see how the shops are run in USA as well as spending time with one of my precious daughters. We were fortunate to have an uneventful but lengthy journey to get here with an  eight hour transit in San Francisco, Kevin and I decided to remain at the airport rather than venture into the city as we had already visited there a few years ago. I have posted a few pics of the airport and Kevin attempting to play Chess on the computer!DSCF0109DSCF0111Below is Samantha’s dog Arnold, he is cuddling up to a quilt Samantha has just completed, it is a Chinese Coins design and she used fabric from Sawmillers, it is lovely and she has machine quilted it herself, I am missing Barney, Official Greeter and 2nd Assistant terribly, so Arnold will be a stand in for the short time, I gather from DH that Archie 3rd Assistant ( Unpaid ) is suffering from ‘separation anxiety’ as well.DSCF0113Today we have been visiting local shops and I have decided to write a separate post for this, don’t forget Sawmillers is remaining open as usual, we have Cheryl and Julie looking after things for us, they are very welcoming and will be able to help with all you queries, we hope everyone enjoyed the UFO Night and the Thursday Ladies are all OK.

Until next time,

Happy Quilting
