Home Again, Home Again, Jiggety-Jig!!!

This is what I looked like the morning I set out for my trip to England to attend the Festival of Quilts. It was held at the National Exhibition Center in Birmingham, England. The Rust-Tex Collection (RTC) and the Ground Zero Quilt were displayed in the European Quilters Café.

People were VERY interested in the RTC and the Ground Zero Quilt.

I made an old Spanish lady cry as I told her some stories about the quilt.

Going to England

I am packing up my bags to go to England. The Rust-Tex Collection (RTC) is already on its way. I bought a mini map of London and Cambridge at a garage sale. I plan to do a lot of walking in London. I am taking some rust dyed clothing and I bought myself a new journal for this trip. Not only will the RTC be displayed at the Festival of Quilts (FOQ) in Birmingham, England. I am also bring my quilt, Ground Zero (GZ). They both will be in the European Quilters Cafe. It will be the first time GZ is on display outside of the USA. I will be vending at the FOQ. And most of my product was shipped with the RTC.
I am staying with friends and this little quilt is for one of them. The apron is what I wear when I vend. The gray fabric is the back of my quilt, GZ. Only two days until I leave!!!
My excitement is building!!!
