Hello from Down Under! I arrived in Melbourne, Australia on Tuesday to start teaching two days of classes at the AQC beginning Thursday.
When last we left our heroine (me), she was at the AQS show in Paducah, KY. Due to the heavy storms that roared through the area on Saturday afternoon, all flights out of Paducah were cancelled, thwarting my itinerary to leave for Australia that afternoon. The first available flight would have been Monday afternoon. Fortunately, I was able to schedule a flight on Sunday afternoon from Memphis, getting into Melbourne a day later than planned, but still in time to recover somewhat from the 4-1/2 hours of domestic flights and 14 hours cross Pacific flight. A massage, pedicure and hair styling went a long way to restoring a positive attitude.
Photos will follow in a day or two of the beautiful venue (Royal Exhibition Building), quilts and class activities, as well as some from Paducah.
