Look what I picked up today!

We're off! Look what I picked up today!

Sue and I are heading for the airport on Sunday where we will catching a flight to London! I haven't been to London since I was in my early twenties, that was only last year wasn't it? :) I wonder how much it has changed.
We are flying into Heathrow and catching a train up to York to visit the original Mrs Billings ... can't wait to see her in the flesh. I know many of you have already, because you have let me know about it over the last few years - but its my turn now!

After our short but exciting visit with Mrs B we are heading back to London and over to Paris using these tickets. Have you been on the Eurostar? They tell me its an interesting trip. (I will let you know what I think soon!)

The Friday girls gave me an early birthday present last week ... spending money for the next part of our trip!

A visit to this amazing quilt show!!!!!!!

I hope I can find some time to keep you up to date with our adventures.

In the meantime I will be at AQC here in Melbourne, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Call past and say hello if you are in town!


p.s I wonder if they have any nice red shoes in Europe?


  1. Have a wonderful Trip. We will expect a lot of pictures. I hope you find the most perfect red shoes too.

  2. Have a great trip! There are many beautiful red shoes in Europe! Do you, by any chance visit the Netherlands too?

  3. Have a wonderful and safe trip. Please find a minute or two to show us some photos from time to time.

  4. hope you have a wonderful trip and the weather is kind to you. Don't get too led astray at Nantes but do enjoy all that wonderful quilty inspiration for more of your wonderful quilt designs. Love Debbie

  5. Eurostar trains are Fantastic enjoy the backyard views. Keep some small change Euro for the Toilets as you need to pay as you go!

  6. How exciting, have a wonderful time Karen!

  7. If you don't find red shoes in Paris, you wont find them anywhere. I'm in Nantes also. The train takes a tunnel under the sea, if I remember correctly, it's about 15', but you hardly notice. Have fun!

  8. On your way to Nantes, I hope you'll have the time to stop in Angers (40 minutes from Nantes by train)
    You could see the Apocalypse Tapestry in the castle (15th century ), the "Chant du Monde" Tapestry ("song of the world" Tapestry) Jean Lurçat (20th century) in St John Hospital, and in the museum next door, a splendid modern Art Tapestry exhibition. Elisabeth from Fance
