I’m leaving for a short trip to visit my daughters and mother Back East on Saturday. It promises to be a busy trip with four long stretches to stitch.
I have two 5+ hour plane trips and two 6+ hour car rides.
Clearly what projects I bring are at least as important as what clothes I pack. And, as always, therein lies the dilemma. I know that I’ll be taking the Shiny & Bright projects. I’ve got the canvas marked, some mounted, and my threads gathered together. The project bag is already in my carryon.
Ditto with the scrap bag quilts that will be a blog series next year. I emptied out my bits & pieces of thread and printed a bunch of quilt pictures to act as inspiration.
These are all small projects and they will work well for the plane trips.
But the car rides are a different story. I can work on bigger projects then because there is more room to stretch out. One of the trips will be on a Sunday, so I would like to use that time to work on a project just for me. That’s my problem. I have several partially complete projects waiting for threads. Then I have several big projects that aren’t even on stretcher bars. And then there are a few projects that are on bars and in project bags but not started.
I’m thinking that one of them will be my best choice. But which to pick. Should I go with the Japanese kitty from CBK pictured above. Or should I work on the canvas for the Kelly Clark cyberclass? My concern with Kelly’s canvas is that I’ll finish the two areas I can do before the car trip is over.
Or should I pick something completely different? What do you think?
