My flight arrived in Frankfurt yesterday and I was met by Anja Pundt who is hosting me for the quilt festival in Ashaffenburg, Germany this weekend. Anja has a quilt shop in Ashaffenburg. I met all the staff (ask me if I remember all the names) and then Anja took me to check into my hotel and then it was time for lunch. After we were greeted with "closed" signs at a couple of restaurants, we decided comfort food would be just fine. It's times like these when a familiar friend can come in handy - LOL.

Last night I enjoyed dinner at the hotel restaurant, but I almost burned the place down. When I was handed my menu (paper), it got too close to the candle and went up in flames. It sure got attention of everyone there. I know how to make an entrance! Germany, I am here!

Today I'm working on getting over the jet lag, but it sure didn't help that I slept in.

So glad you are having a wonderful time. Traveling in the 'old world' is such a special opportunity and privilege. I'm confident that you will make us Americans look good where every you go. Safe journey and safe return. Hope to attend one of your classes one day.

My daughter lives in Erdmannhausen, Germany (north of Stuttgart) and I have a quilt shop in Backnag that I go to whenever I go for a visit. Looks like I have a new one to try. Will have to look up where Achaffenburg is. Enjoy Prague -- I was there last fall. It is a beautiful, beautiful city. Happy quilting. P.S. I live near Carol Moellers!

Beautiful food! Glad to see you made it safely. Drink lots of water, please. Worried about your kidneys.
