I am sitting in Charlotte, NC trying to get home to my own bed. I left Sisters, Oregon yesterday morning (it is now Monday night at 7pm) and have been diverted many times due to weather and engine trouble. At times I have wondered whether I will be home and packed in time to leave for Alaska on Wednesday morning at 6am. Please cross your fingers I get home tonight! I am using my time wisely and have uploaded all my pictures to my blog from my wonderful week in Sisters, OR. I plan to do a few posts to cover the week.
I have just spent a wonderful week in Sisters, OR teaching at Quilters Affair. I taught 5 days of classes. The first one was my Greta Needle Roll. We worked with textural fabrics, ribbons, beads, stitches and made roving balls by hand.
I also taught a three day class of Robin Run the Hedge. I loved this class as all the students had time to cut out and lay out most of their design. We then spent the last day working on stitches that they could incorporate on their applique.
It was a fun filled week with enthusiastic students that keep me hopping.
