Spent most of yesterday either on the air or waiting to be in the air, we finally made it to Portland, Oregon after our very own version of the Oregon Trail! We were using air miles so had an exceedingly roundabout route -Kalamazoo to Chicago to Dallas/Fort Worth to Portland - I stitched my way here on a small Blackbird Designs piece (Noel) from the book, Joyeux Noel. I also, while waiting for the first plane, signed up for a new Blackbird Designs blog (and also as co-organiser with Nina) and my goodness, take a look, some gorgeous stitching!
I'm hoping to get to Acorns and Threads tomorrow, we don't have a car here but I'm told a bus from downtown will take me fairly close. Portland has a terrific public transit system with a big fareless section - Mayor Daley, are you reading this? And yes, we do need a direct line from downtown and/or Union Station to Chicago O'Hare International Airport, one of the biggest and busiest in the world, so we don't have to rely on the Blue Line L which stops every few minutes and takes nearly an hour - I could fly to DC in that time!
Can't work out how the WT's camera works so will upload photographs later!
