Have sewing will travel. Does that sound like you? Every time we get ready to leave for a trip of some kind (and that is pretty often now that we both have retired) I start to panic a little bit. Will I have enough sewing to take along? What is the least intrusive sewing I can take? Should I even take sewing along?
I have a lot of hand sewing projects, but most of them tend to take up a bit of room--my "forever" hexie project, the quilt I'm hand quilting, even my extreme embroidery piece takes up more room than I'd like because I need to carry lots of different colors of embroidery floss.
I know that part of the problem is I'm a "What-If" kind of gal. What if I don't have the color floss I need (so I bring way too much)? What if I don't want to work on that embroidery project (so I bring two or three)? What if I spill something on my quilt (even when I drag it along I don't work on it)? What if I don't bring something to sew and I really need something to sew? What if I'm sewing and people think I'm rude by doing that?
I didn't have to make a decision; it was made for me. I had a little mishap the day before we left. I slipped on some water in the garage and landed hand/wrist first on the concrete. I didn't have time before we left to have it X-rayed; I'm hoping for the best. There is no way I could sew (so no decision had to be made). That's giving me time to catch up on my reading. I'm on the third book in the Game of Thrones series; those books are REALLY long.
I do have another 365 Challenge update. I have been working on those blocks whenever I get a chance.
These are some pretty intricate blocks; I'm really liking them.
