Well I am here at last safely but not without a few hitches.
I arrived at the airport with plenty of time to spare as usual.
I just happen to have an extra bag in tow which I of course new would be excess baggage. One extra bag under 20kg and they wanted to charge me $2,500 yes you have read that right. I almost swallowed my tongue. So right away there were a few adjustments to be made. I could have bought the bag it's own seat for less than that.
The flight was as OK as a long haul can be and I arrived in Amsterdam unscathed. A taxi ride to the hotel to settle in and then just a short train ride.
Well, I put my credit card into the ticket machine and the machine ate it. Crap.
Just what you need when your travelling.
A quick phone call home and that was sorted. Thankgoodness.
I arrived at the Distributors and they have done a wonderful job refurbishing the place, it looks wonderful.
Rows and rows of fabric, notions, books and of course a complete range of my designs and pre-cut papers.
My classroom looks very impressive and there have been lots people scurrying around all day adding finishing touches here and there.
I will have some photos of it all on Sunday I hope.
So while I am away I thought I would have a little guessing competition. The person who guesses the right answer or the closest to the right answer will win a copy of my new Chelsea quilt pattern complete with papers.
I will announce the winner when I arrive home from Europe.
So all you need to do is guess how many 1/2" hexagons there are in this jar.
So happy guessing
Till next time
