OH it is so very fun!!!! I'm working with Deepika and a few other ladies getting the details of this year's event planned. I think we're almost ready to "present" to the group so stay tuned. It should be a very fun weekend. I hope you'll be able to attend Kathy! :-)

I think I'll be able to come this year - crossing my fingers that life does not intervene! Have to decide between driving and flying though - will depend on where the accommodations are. I'm close enough yet far enough that I can go either way. Of course, out here we think nothing of driving six hours or more - East Coast people would fly in a heartbeat.

Suo ergo maledicto

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. - Steve Jobs

I'm crossing fingers that I can figure out a way to get there - PR Weekends are always so much fun - but I'm not sure at this point. Various kitty vet crises are taking a toll on my sewing budget, but I'm going to see if I can find the $$ somewhere else because I'd hate to miss this one.

There's always room for one more cat, one more book or one more yard of fabric.
