It’s a travel day for me, so I’m setting this up to post while I’m in the air!
I'll also be meeting with Birgit Kaller. She writes for a prominent quilting magazine in Germany, Patchwork Gilde Deutschland.
I was able to meet Lissa for a drive-by-quilt-drop-off curbside at DFW, packed that Virginia Bound quilt back in the quilt duffels, and off we went!
This is just a short short post, travel days don’t leave much to write about, but look at this, I thought this was funny!
Here I am standing in a LONG line waiting to go through security and there is this little kiosk where you can mail items home you forgot to put IN your checked luggage!
On the little chart, it tells you how much it is to ship each item home….in most cases the price of shipping your item is MORE than the item would cost….
With all the things they ban these days, I thought it hilarious that they would single out SNOWGLOBES. ((!!!)) But look….you can ship a snowglobe home for only 5 bucks more from over seas, than you can domestically….so if I really wanted to get my money’s worth, I’d let it fly all the way home from Europe
Look at what I saw at MODA!! Ooooohhh…look at these beauties! Lissa let me pet them and unfold them and take pictures!!
Wouldn’t you love to just paw around in here? Each fabric was so wonderful!
And what really blew me away were the catalogues:
See that date on the spine? These are fabrics from 1891!
Lissa also held the quilts for me while I took pics…I was so excited I had a hard time holding the camera still, so pardon the blurry ones…
There were more, many more, but we were short on time!
I had a great time…..and what is so funny is that I think Lissa and I could honestly pass for twins. Seriously Same height, same coloring, same everything..we even graduated highschool the same year! In fact, someone asked her at the lecture if she was me. Isn’t that fun! Have you ever been face to face with someone where it was so much like looking into a mirror? What a cool experience!
So….the next time you hear from me, I’ll be in Germany! What adventures we will have to share!
