In a mad moment in June last summer, I decided that I would book my place at QuiltCon 2015. I spent the first day of my holiday at my sister's house on her computer desperately TRYING to get the classes and Super Volunteer slots that I wanted. I think I must have hit the refresh button a million times in an hour!
Fast forward to today, and I find myself frantically packing odd bits and pieces for a week-long sewing vacation in TEXAS!
So far I have booked a taxi to the airport, looked at what films I will watch on my 10 hour and 20 minute flight (best choices are The Hundred-Foot Journey, The Maze Runner, Gone Girl, Paddington and Mr. Turner) and have dyed some of my rather boring brown hair purple! As you do. I'm obviously dealing with the important things first!
I am so excited to be heading to Austin because I am going to be hanging out with Charlotte and Nathalie as well as seeing a few of my Canadian pals from the Ottawa MQG and the Vancouver MQG. I also get to meet people in person who I have been following on-line since I started quilting in 2009. Exciting stuff!
And of course I am looking forward to the food. This is TEXAS people - I will be eating some Tex-Mex food! And steak. And probably more steak! And hopefully some Fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp.
There will be some shopping to do as well. I love picking up things I am not able to get very easily here in the UK. Things like Twizzlers, cake mixes and Cheez Whiz. There will be a variety of fabric and haberdashery vendors at QuiltCon as well so fingers crossed I can be a good girl and keep my #sewyourstash2015 promise and not buy
For those of you not attending -- I wish you were!
For those of you who are -- TRAVEL SAFELY.
