This week I returned from my trip to the UK where I met my daughter, Lisa, and we visited London, Jersey, and Brugge Belgium. We had a nice trip and a good visit. The crowds of people made me appreciate my home with its rural setting and wide open spaces. Below are a photo of Big Ben in London, one of Lisa on a walking trail in Jersey and one of Brugge. I have a week left to get ready for my teaching at Quilt Canada in Lethbridge Alberta and then hope to organize the opening of my new teaching studio and gallery.
