Thanks for the reminder of the seam ripper. How did I miss that one!! LOL! And starch, yes, Ellen's Best Press. I also have my laptop with data card at all times. Oh, and my e reader for when I get frustrated!! I'm going to try (?)and get some blocks partially machine made ahead of time so I can do applique. That would be a good use of my time. April trip is coming up fast.
I'm almost scared to take my tiny pieces to my daughters in May while I cat sit 2 lively cats while she is in Europe. I will just have to be diligent in keeping track of my pieces. I do have this lap desk with storage inside that will sit on a hotel bed just fine.
Thanks again for the ideas. Anything else let me know!! And keep those beautiful blocks coming.
