… April has arrived and with that my teaching and traveling begins. I am packed and ready to depart for the airport to catch my plane to Winnipeg. This will be my first time to the capital city of Manitoba and I look forward to spending my free time with a friend exploring some of the sights Wednesday and hopefully connect over lunch with SAQA members on Friday..
Packing for teaching is never easy and this time it was no different. Luggage regulations have changed once again since my last flight in 2011. It makes life a little more challenging and travel less enjoyable when I try to pack an array of samples for a workshop and have little or no room for my clothes. I never pack a large wardrobe but with my judging kit I really had to choose my changes for the various activities carefully. Hopefully the snow from the past weekend won’t follow me as I am only bringing one pair of shoes.
I am sure the workshop participants will be more interested in samples and full color handouts than what hue my T-shirt is on any given day. I look forward to seeing Manitoba’s quilters’ master pieces and eagerly anticipate connecting with 16 students to explore “Layers of Intrigue”. As I mentioned earlier: This is my first foray into this province and reports of artistic accomplishments have been on my radar for years.
I am bringing my camera and will be sharing my adventures once I return from my trip! regular posts have been scheduled, including a guest blogger appearance of Judi Warren Blaydon on April 15th.
