I seem to be doing more playing than stitching. I'm packing for Portland to attend the Stitch in Bliss retreat. Kathy Paterson of Bongo Designs will be teaching her piece Eternity. I have packed my StitchSmart Stand which weighs four pounds and my MultiFlex (6 Led) Work Light. One of my customers wrote a review of this stand for the ANG Yahoo group recently. She mentiond that it broke down into 3 pieces. I thought it was only two pieces. We learn something every day. I have unpacked my winter clothes for this trip. It was still 100 degrees last week. We've had rain for two days this week. First rain for the desert in 8 months. We were so excited! I have a new I Pad so I will be able to blog from Portland. Class starts on Friday.
