My three girlfriends and I have booked a guided tour of Ireland which includes three days at the International Quilt Festival 2013 in Ireland. We are all so excited and I can hardly wait for June. I have never been in Europe and one friend and I are looking into staying a few extra days in London. She has been there a few times and thinks I would love seeing the city. My relatives on my mom's side came to Canada in 1850; her maiden name was Kirkpatrick so I can officially wear the button that says 'Kiss me I'm Irish'! I'm wondering if any of you are going to this festival?
