Jelly Roll Block and some update on my travels!!!

Block #9 for thein the April Cornell .... Decadent Victorian

this was a fun and easy block.. it does not take any time at all to make and I was glad because I have limited time left to work on sewing projects ....I will not be able to work on the

until I return from my trip....

Which brings me to the update of our Bus Tour to San Antonio

... It is quite exciting ....Saturday, July 26th the bus leaves from St John New Brunswick so we are crossing on a ferry from Digby Nova Scotia on Friday

Day #1 on to Boston;

Day#2 Washington DC;

Day #3 Knoxville Tennessee;

Day #4 Little Rock Arkansas; This is where the highlight of my trip takes place...this is where history is going to be made .... Kelly and I are meeting for the first time in person and that is not all... Michelle is coming to meet Kelly and I, for the first time also... Now do you think Little Rock will ever be the same? (I am considering calling the authorities in Little Rock to advise them there will be lots noisy chatter but not to be alarmed ....just happy charming girls:))) oh ma ma... This is like Christmas in July!!!! Doesn't get better than that! I know it will be too short a visit ( Ok!Ok! I am greedy!)and I will hate to move on.....

to San Antonio for four days...

return trip brings us to ...
July 4th, New Orleans...

July 5th Charlotte North Carolina....

July 6th.... Danbury Connecticut

and then back to Canada.

Now remember this is all taking place on a bus so I prepared all this......

What a perfect opportunity to get some appliqué done ... and the "Orange Peel" has lots....Some of our friends who are travelling with us are not surprised I will be quilting and they are not quilters....

This is the first thing I organized in the suitcase ... never mind the clothes....

So this may be my last post for a while. I will have my camera and I will take lots of pictures but I am not bringing my laptop so I cannot download the pictures until I get home. I will check my blog and answer comments every evening, once we land at our hotels.

♥Kelly and Michelle ♥....one week from today!
