Galaxy-Gram! And we are off!

Time for boarding!  We are all so excited!

We will be in London by breakfast time!

Here are a few shots of friends traveling together and hubbies brave enough to not only to travel with wives but also with a tour of quilters.

Oh yes. And this is coach. One row from the back of the plane. These long legs have zero wiggle room.
Doesn't matter!  We are England bound!

Bonnie, we will be eagerly awaiting your posts and photos! We live vicariously through you. Don't laugh, but I recently traveled to NEW England (Conn, Ver, Mass,etc) and wanted to make a kit for piecing, take a quilt to finish binding, etc... I wanted to travel "Bonnie Style". Once I traveled to a wedding and stayed in a hotel room by myself. I took my sewing machine and two projects to work on. I left the reception a little early and went back to the room, got in pajamas and sewed all night! Just like Bonnie!:) Thanks for all you do!

I'm done travelling long haul in coach, always go premium economy wherever I can. Hubby suffers terribly and gets very bad tempered if he's cramped. Can't wait to read your coming posts and see your picture. Have a good time.

I notice your plane is called Dancing Queen. Lovely. We've flown on Tinkerbell and Lady Penelope. I love the names of the Virgin planes.
Have a lovely time while you're here.xx

England was one of my very favorite European trips. I love the people and just about everything except...takes twice the money almost American to buy anything. Don't forget Liberty of London fabric while there... many sites to see...a lovely place.
