    On Monday I found out I was going to England to work at a quilt show in Birmingham. This is my first time in the UK. I am so excited! So for all you going to the show, stop by The Cotton Patch booth and say hi! I also see that Marti Michell will be in the booth doing demos. I love my job!!!!

    And while you are there look for some Hand crank vintage machines to bring back home with you. There are folks here (me) that would pay a pretty penny for the right ones!

    I am super jealous! If you have time be sure and stop by Pinwheels booth. Maria is the US distributor for Daiwabo Taupes. If you haven't seen them before - well they are just out of this world!

    Also, if you have time be sure and take as many pics as you can. We would all love to see what is going on there.

    Have a great trip!

    A Flake is a candy bar that is made up of a bunch of super thin 'flakes' of milk chocolate. It is flaky and crumbly and it melts in your mouth. So tasty!

    Two things to fix whatever ails on a hot English summer afternoon: A 99 which is an delicious vanilla ice cream cone with a mini flake stuck in ice cream or a Ribena ice lolly which is a popsicle made of frozen Ribena a black current non-carbonated soft drink. Yum-o!!

    Oh my....you are so lucky! I lived there two different times for about 4 years! I miss it so much! And, oh....the blackcurrant flavored ANYTHING....and sangria....and XXX mints (not R rated, just hot)...and so much more...walking into the village everyday with my neighbors, my daughter in her pram....oh how I miss it!

    Have loads of fun!

    The first time I came back, I brought several of the handcrank sewing machines with me and sold all but one. I still have my old faithful Frister & Rossman!
