It is kind of surreal that in a few days I'll be starting my long journey to Australia. I leave Weds night, and arrive Friday the 13th! Ha!
In case you missed my Creative Nudge Weds, I wanted to let you know that I've posted several photos from my brief visit to Miami last weekend.
My visit to Australia is going to be very busy, but the first 3 days I will be at the Melbourne Australasian Quilt Convention. I'll be walking the show, taking lots of photos, and will be very happy to visit with any of you who are also at the show!
Then Pam Holland (who is recreating the Bayeaux Tapestry, among many other things!) and I will be doing a quilty girlfriend road trip up the Great Ocean Road. Leesa Chandler (talented Kaufman designer) will take us to a wildlife park, then I'll be off to Canberra. As I've mentioned before, I'll be giving a presentation there at the Jerrabomberra Community Centre in Queanbeyan on Sat April 21st, and I look forward to meeting many of you there!
The last couple days have had a decidedly French twist, although I didn't plan it that way. Yesterday I had lunch with a single mom who teaches French language and cooking classes, but now wants to open a new French-themed business. Today I went to see the French opera "Manon" which was a live streaming HD performance from the Met in New York.
The movie theater was PACKED (!) and I ended up sitting down in front where you can't really see the subtitles, but then I discovered that's where a bunch of the French-speaking opera lovers had settled. I decided to brush up on my rusty French... between the opera libretto and the whispered francais all around me. The opera was tres fantastique, and the costumes were magnifique!
Now I've got to brush up on my Australian slang...
Happy Passover, Happy Easter, and Happy Spring!
