My bags are packed for my first teaching tour of 2012. This is the same ratty luggage that trekked with me to several countries and states in 2011. Surely they look as old as I feel.
But suddenly, as I place the last yard of fabric in an over weight suitcase, I cheer up. Soon I'll be with a group of creative quilters. And I get to leave this pile of ironing behind! See you all soon!
