Back in March last year Melanie (daughter) rang and said she’d like to go to Quiltcon and asked if I’d like to go with her? Would I? Those of you who know me, know I never miss a chance to get away, and I’ve never been to USA before so I wasn't going to be left at home! With much excitement I purchased my flights way back in April 2014! So once again this poor blog and my sewing got neglected while I took on extra shifts at work.
First up, we decided we wouldn’t just go for Quiltcon we’d make it a bit of a holiday, Kevin (husband) wasn’t going to miss out either, he was coming too!
Early February finds us ensconsed enroute from Sydney to Dallas – 16 hours flight time and greatly amused that we landed in Dallas Fort Worth about an hour before we actually took off in Sydney!
This is the view from the Motel window at the airport. A beautiful day. With only a few hours to spend before our flight the next morning the concierge arranged a car and driver to take us to Fort Worth Stockyards. Not your average taxi service, a beautiful, big shiny black Chev Suburban with all the bells and whistles, darkened windows so we could pretend we were a movie star or someone very important! It’s a great way to travel.To round out the day, we dined at the Stockyards Hotel and I had my first (and definitely not my last) Margarita. Yummo! Melanie & Kevin tried their first plate of Barbecued Texas ribs -
and weren't disappointed – pretty good huh.
