Lark Prize Bonanza!
While I have been buried in a pile of paper work this week, I received a wonderful distraction, a big box filled with books from Lark Publishing for my prize from the "Quilt it" contest. This is great there are several books in here that have been on my wish list for some time, so I look forward to a little time to peruse those lovely colorful pages.
In the mean time I am preparing kits, writing an article, modifying supply lists and preparing for my trip to New Zealand. I am so excited to be going on my first teaching adventure abroad! I will be teaching two workshops in Auckland for the quilt guild the last weekend of April and then traveling to Palmerston North for their Tote and Gloat Quilt Symposium the first weekend in May to lecture and teach. I wish I had a travel companion to explore the country side between these two locations, it looks extraordinary. I would love to drive and stop where ever I want to see things but I am afraid to drive on the opposite side of the road with no one to remind me to keep the car where it belongs. Maybe I will get brave...
