I couldn't believe how many of you wanted my old ribbons! --Or how badly I felt that I didn't have 45 packets of them to give away. But, in the end there was only enough for one: Melanie. Thank you all for your well-wishes. I'll have some bundles of scraps and things next week, I think, so more chances then.

To answer some questions that came up:
1/ Yes, I'll keep this blog when I go.
2/ I'll be teaching English in a high school.
3/ The town is in the east, near Dijon.
4/ I'll be there until April, at which point I have to come home. More on this later. I may or may not go back, depending on several things.
5/ I'm "packing" by sending some to my parents' garage, some to thrift stores, and some to you, apparently. I will bring some clothes, some books, teaching materials, my old bear, bed linens, toiletries, and my sewing machine.
6/ The original post was here.

I am getting ready for another crafty thing--information is here, if you're looking for a good time in Minneapolis on Saturday--and then another in two weeks in Portland, and then one more right before I leave. These fabrics are used in my fall collection--part of which I'll have at the Design Fiesta this weekend. Better get back to the grindstone.

Edit: Look at this book! I hadn't seen it before, and the carved stamps (hanko: はんこ) are SO CUTE. I would totally buy it if, well, you know.

I'm so glad you linked to your original post; I knew you were off to somewhere, and somehow I missed where that somewhere would be. Now I can look forward to reading about your adventures since you will continue to indulge us via your blog. The very best to you!!
