Well, here is where I am with this "Shoo-Fly" Quilt. The last yellow one is taking me a while to get done. This week was too much of a mental challenge for me to get through that I just couldn't make time to sit, stitch and relax. But with my upcoming travel...a plane ride of 6 hours...I am sure that I will have an opportunity to get some stitching done.
How does one pack their stitching stuff when traveling on a plane? Are scissors ok to bring on board? Are laying tools ok? How much is too much? That is always something that I ponder - for I know that there will not be a whole lot of time to sit and pull out my stitching during many of these trips (where it is a family oriented one like this one or a hockey trip)...yet, I always feel inclined to bring the current project plus more (other projects and more stash). However, I think that I am doing pretty good for this trip (which is for my grandfather's funeral and only the weekend). I am bringing my current project and then one other little zipper pouch w/thread and small patterns (just incase). And I cannot forget the letter I wrote to my Grandfather that I am going to read during the memorial service.
Well, I am just about set to go...just need to finish up a couple more things around the house and pick up Robert from school & head out to the airport.
Hope everyone has a great weekend! Stitch on...Lisa
