Do you see what that is? It's a boxing kangaroo light-up pen that was given to me by my Australian friends.  I will be there in July teaching at Quilting in the Highlands out side of Sydney. Joe was not so sure he wanted to go with me - he thinks that Australia is like Southern California but with a much cooler accent (and no in-laws).  So I had to promise (lie to) him that if he goes with me  he will see LOTS of boxing kangaroos and we will certainly meet the real Tasmanian Devil.  Now he wants to come with me.  In fact, he says I had him at LOTS of boxing kangaroos.   Welcome to my world.  I can't wait for Joe's disappointment when the Tasmanian Devil's father is not wearing a Hawaiian shirt. My life feels like a bad cartoon episode. 

Here is one of the flower quilt classes I will be teaching.  It's called the Waratah.  I have no idea how to pronounce it.  Hopefully, the Tasmanian Devil will help out.

 Today is Thread Play day and tomorrow I dye the fabrics for the kits.  I think it turned out really nice.
 But first things first - I have to find where the boxing kangaroos hang out.  Any ideas?
