We're off to Germany tomorrow ! We'll be stopping first to see friends near Frankfurt and Munich and then its on to Hannover-where DH is giving a lecture and then Berlin for 10 days (DH is giving a lecture there too but mostly it will be sightseeing!)
I'm looking forward to seeing the collection at the Textile Museum in Berlin...you can see why-maybe I'll get to see this amazing dress... or this wonderful lace curtain.
Of course, I am on the hunt to see some quilts but my German skills are so slim (ok, non-existent!) that even with DH's help, the hunt via internet isn't going too well! It will be dumn luck if we hit a quilt exhibit but I'll let you know!
Katrina, a German blogger, has kindly sent me a wonderful list of quilt shops and a link to the guild so that should help make this a quilty trip!
I'm taking my little netbook so I hope to be able to blog and check up on what everyone's doing while we're traveling! I've loaded my i-pod with free audiobooks from Librivox and lots of music so our plane and several long train rides should be ok....I'm thinking I can listen to an audiobook and still look out the window on the train-we'll see if that works!
The Phillies are in the World Series!!!Two years in a row! Totally amazing!
