Tickets are booked and paid for, car is hired. America, I will be looking forward to seeing you in March 2013 :) 

For many years I have been planning, dreaming about a trip to the USA to see what there is to see (well as much as I can see in 3 months). Finally, it is a reality and will be going on an American adventure.

I will be spending time with a friend and hope to blog about our road trip and time wondering through this enormous country. 

So watch this space from the end of March 2013.

Can't wait!!!

Until next time

Greetings from Exeter Tasmania. In Stitches friendship day. I am here with quilters from all over Tasmania including my buddy Leanne (Lizzy the quilter). 

The atmosphere is electric and the room is full. Lots of fun food a quilting friendship going on. Its been a great day and I look forward to the next friendship day wherever that might be.

Just a couple of quilts on display at the front of the room by quilters from the Exeter In Stitches group who were hosting the day.

The room fills quickly as people come in looking for a place to sit 

I worked on my Mrs Billings Coverlet quilt which is coming along slowly.
I have been quite slack with my blog LOL there are just so many things and not enough hours in the day. Springtime in Tasmania means gardening and spending time outdoors and also about meeting up with friends for BBQ's and other outings like friendship days.

From now on I will post other things as I have been doing a bit of knitting. I would also like to post pictures and stories from my travels and outings but may not be quilt related. In saying that Avonlea Vignettes will be mainly about quilting and quilting friends. Little snippets of life from the bottom of the globe on the little apple shaped island of Tasmania.

Take care 
Until next time
