I'm leaving town today - heading out - on the road! Headed north to Sewing Expo in Puyallup,Washington, just south of Seattle. I can't wait to get there and see all the wonderful things waiting for me - and a few thousand other people.Expo is held every year at the Washington State Fairgrounds. There are vendors and seminars and fashion shows and demonstrations of new tools and techniques. I love to join other sewing and needlework enthusiasts and catch up with an 'old' friend or two along the way. My tickets are in my bag - my camera is going with me - and my walking shoes are on my feet! But the best part will be time spent with a dear friend who lives close to the fun. Her home is my landing place. It's like staying in a Bed and Breakfast - the royal treatment, for sure. I always treasure the time we spend together. In-person, face-to-face time, not just online or phone time. Real time with a real friend! Can't wait to tell you all about it when I return.
