We have just returned from a three week trip to the US. We had a wonderful time and met some wonderful people. We met some old friends and made some new ones. I will post some pictures of our trip once I have sorted them out - I took hundreds but will share a few of them. Norman bought be a new digital camera as an early birthday present so I had fun using it. It was so small and compact and of course it was lightweight - I hope I did it justice (Norman took lots with his just in case!)
We started our trip in Chicago (the quilt show was wonderful) then on to Middlebury to see the Amish community - Amish apple butter and Amish peanut butter is fantastic and I brought some home with me!! We then went to Toledo - Norman was in seventh heaven at the Model Engineering show and I enjoyed it too. We then drove (Norman did!) to Paducah to the quilt show and spent a few days exploring the surrounding area - we had a fabulous time.
Whilst I was away Gail of Expression Studio has given me an award, thank you Gail.
It is always difficult picking blogs for awards and many have probably already received it but here are mine:
My tutor emailed me whilst I was away to say she had signed off my Module 4 work - I heaved a sigh of relief I can tell you. I can't wait to get it back now.
Now I must go and reload the washing machine - I have a mountain to do which is easy enough but I dread all the ironing! My treat will be to try out my new toys!
I hope to get back to regular blogging again now.
