I wasn't going to blog about it. Not yet, anyway. I am really very excited but I keep thinking some sort of last minute hiccup or wrench or other malarkey will get in the way of it happening.
But what the heck. I was never any good at surprises.
You see, in September, I am going to meet up with my dear friend, Jade, in Seattle and spend four days with eight other crafters at a Dottie Angel workshop hosted by Tif Fussell herself. In a historic mansion. Sewing. And visiting. Ohhing and Aahing over each other's vintage goodies. Staying up late and making big, big plans. And crocheting (although we'll see how THAT goes. I do have a history there.).
We're packing up our sewing machines, some doilies, ric-rac, scissors and a variety of vintage fabrics and notions, a slip and a stool (the supply list said so), and we are going to schlep all of this stuff through airports and taxis like gypsies until we arrive at the Shuey House and collapse in a heap of eclectic craft supplies.
And I cannot wait.
Doesn't it sound fantastic? Doesn't it? Lucky for you, there are still two spots left...

UPDATE! My dear friend, Beki, has taken one of those last spots! Yipppeeee!
