Most of you know I am going to Bruge Aug 5th to Aug 31st. Patty asked me to blog about my trip as I go so you can keep abreast of my travels and share in my lace adventures. So today is my first attempt... I need to practice a bit. I will have a little Kindle Fire and as long as I can keep it charged and find WiFi I guess this Sister reporter is good!
I was at Sweet Briar which was most excellent, a piece coming in the newsletter. Several gals had been to Bruge and without collaborating they each told me to be sure and bring BUG Spray that was the most important as there were no screens! Never mind the bobbins and pillow etc. First things first no bug bites! Chuckle  Chuckle!
Several lacers are sharing in my adventure purchasing supplies for me, pencils vellum and books and bobbins. I feel very grateful,cared about not to mention prepared.... So.. until 'the packing juggle' begins... lucky I only need a habit or two!!

Sentiments from Sister

    I am so glad you had a good time at Sweet Briar - how could you not? And that you met some folks who had been to Bruges and could give you some good advice. I hope you also have an international voltage converter/charger that you can use with your Kindle so you can keep it charged while you are away.

    I look forward to hearing more of your adventures in August.

    Congratulations Sr! Your first blog entry. I am looking forward to hearing your updates. Bruge was the first lace I studied many years ago. I can do sewings by the hundreds!
    PS - not sure your arrangements - a sleeping net may be in order?

    We will be tuned in :)

    What a grand adventure! At least you don't have to worry about malaria from those mosquitoes.

      Have a wonderful time making beautiful lace...without the bugs, of course!
