You'll all be glad to know that Amy and I made it home safely, and so did all our luggage. I joked with the customs guy that 'we travel light' after seeing that all our baggage had 'heavy' stickers plastered on them. Lucky for us he had a sense of humour and told us that we weren't the worst he'd seen.
You see some of the weighty culprits in the picture. This is some of my fabric haul - and fabric is heavy! I was reunited with some of the fabric today after sending them home with Martin. I must confess that we travelled to the US with three suitcases between us, and ultimately brought seven home. I must further confess that really speaking, four of those were mine alone.
But back to the picture. Almost everything you see here is one yard or more - many pieces as much as three yards. The ones on top in front of the fat quarter stacks that look like fat quarters are actually folded yard pieces, procured carefully from PIQF. Ohhh, and those fat quarter towers of gorgeous reproduction fabrics, I could just play with them all day. I just had a quick guesstimate, and I believe there could be as much as 80 yards there - possibly more with all those fq's! OMG!
Well, I really should get back to unpacking - I still have a million things to sort, a ton of clothes, shoes and souvenirs to find homes for. Also the issue of the slight fog around me after travelling half way across the globe and through heaven knows how many time zones. I've missed visiting with you all, and look forward to catching up with everyone, and sharing my adventures too :-)
