24 hours down 15 to go.

I left Las Vegas almost 24 hours ago and I'm now in Tokyo.

This is the last time I'm doing this route… it's got whiskers on it.

It's 2.00 AM Las Vegas time, I've just taken a shower in the Qantas club and I feel a little better….I don't dare lie down, I would more than likely miss the flight which leaves in a few hours.

The BBC news is on the TV, it's quiet and cool and I can recharge the ipad and computer…and I'm watching the loading of a plane as I work.

What do I do on the plane…?

I watched 3 movies, drew for a couple of hours and did a little video editing, somehow I lost the edited version of the previous video on the Chicago show somewhere… I couldn't believe it, I have to do it all over again.

I can plug the power cord in the plane, but I couldn't find the socket.!!!!

So changing the subject, back to St George.


This photo is of Nedra and Heather on my last day in St George.


I'm amazed at the petroglyphs. I've done some drawings and I think I will have it put on to fabric through spoonflower.


This cactus was in Nedras garden…. just amazing…

OK, I'm on the move again…

I've been through 6 sets of security… taken my shoes and jacket off, been questioned why I can't take off the bling…numerous times…and pulled the darn computer out of the bag over and over again…..


The life of a Quilter.

  2. I hope you are home safe and sound by now. What a long trip back to Australia.
    It was so wonderful having you here. I miss you already!
    Happy Mother’s Day, and I know you will enjoy just being with your family and the happy surroundings.

    I trust you’re safely home by now. I’m curious about your statement that the route has “whiskers on it.” I’ve never heard that before. Is it Australian?

  4. Spoonflower, finally? Thank goodness. I prescribe three days bed rest, which you will not take. I know you. You will be down the shed just having a look. Happy Mother’s day.
    Lots of Love

    On FB Jim West asked what was on our bucket list and well I have to say a class with Pam Holland is on the list.
    I sincerely hope your trip home went well and rest is on the way when you get there. I was curious about the “whiskers on it” saying. Have a Happy Mother’s Day. Have a fun and restful one. the best, peggy in missouri

    OK, Whiskers on it… sorry, its an Aussie slang phrase. Meaning… that it’s not too pleasant…
