A little more red and leaving on a jet plane!

These quilts  are off to the quilter this week.

This pile is still waiting to be quilted.

These blocks need a decision made on how to set them.

And these blocks are just waiting for me
 to have the time to put them together.

 And that's not going to happen for a while,
 as l leave on a jet plane Sunday,
 on a Grand European Adventure with 3 friends.

Remember Randi?
My travel partner last year in New York?
Well, we are meeting again in Paris,
 and have many wonderful adventures planned.

Our first stop will be Nantes,

Then we will wend our way through northern France,
Belgium and Netherlands, before ending in Amsterdam.

We have many delightful stops planned,
 including several quilt shops along the way.

There will be plenty of this!

And this,

We plan on seeing some of this also.

Then 8 days to take in the delights of Norway,
 with Randi as our guide, 

before we head to the States, and Quilt Market,
where l plan on being the first Aussie in line for
  The Quilted Crows new book Elegant Quilts Country Charm.
l am super excited to be there for the release.

l hope to have the time to post along the way.
It might just be a picture or 2.

But before l go, tomorrow will find me at
 the Australian Quilt Convention in Melbourne.

So my sewing machine is just going to have to wait for my return.
Then l promise, it will have a good workout!!

Thanks for visiting.
