Blue Trip ahead

I am invited to join in on a Blue Trip as we call it here, tomorrow :-)
Out in the blue is a Norwegian expression for "don't know where" - a mystery trip.
We are going by bus, we are quilters, and I know that when quilters are involved on a trip together there will be a quilt shop involved too.
There went my fabric diet for April with no buys I guess......... :-)
I am very much looking forward to the trip! I have not been much out going trip wise for a very very long time.

Oh yes - the Christmas card was very well received at guild.
It will be part of a project I have taken the initiative to, to get more people to participate in our guild's bi-annual show this autumn. It is also our 15. anniversary.
If we can get more people to participate, even with a fabric postcard, it will be more fun to make the show for us in the show committee, and more fun for all participants and guests.
We will have a workshop / work together day with cards as the subject in October. I have got the teacher job for that one, so ideas are spinning in my head already.

But - the Christmas colours got to me, so here is one for spring!

These flowers were a gift from my DH and my DDs for my birthday. They are very beautiful!
You guys also brightened my day with all your lovely birthday wishes - thank you :-)

A bus trip with quilters headed to a mystery location sounds like fun! I am headed out with the members of my guild next weekend to a national quilt show three hours away. I can hardly wait!

A mystery trip with a bus load of quilters - OMG - what fun! I'll look forward to hearing all about it when you get back. Hope you have a bigger bag to carry all your purchases - LOL.
