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!!!

Enjoy your adventure-what a fun trip!
I also wanted to let you know what an inspiration your blog has been to me, you got me started with my rust dyed projects. I put a few pieces I did on my etsy shop, and I referred back to you-just wanted you to know http://www.etsy.com/listing/53438010/rust-dyed-on-country-stripes-7 thank you again Kathy

Lois,
It was great to see GZ and all your Rust Tex quilt winners at the Festival of Quilts. I'm looking forward to using my bakers dozen of stars and all the rusty objects I have been amassing for my first Rust Tex project.

I hope the four days of very hard work at the Festival of Quilts are successful and you are enjoying your time in England.

Saw your stunning work for the first time at Festival of Quilts last week. I was very moved by GroundZero of course but my absolute favourite was Moonstruck - it was the quilt I would liked to have brought home from the show with me and could live with, love the colours, design, the tranquillity and movement of it, thank you for bringing it to UK. Now following your blog (about to give various types of dyeing a go for the first time, so inspired).

Lis,
You could buy Moonstruck. If you go to http://rust-tex.com/TW/ you will see phone numbers of all the winners. Just give Jean a call and arrange to buy it.
