travel kit.

I'm going away for a long weekend with my daughter!
Yeah!
Sewing supplies are a high priority as I pack!
I can't take a sewing machine along....:(
so I'll have to make do with handwork!
I love the ability at home to move from one project to another
and to have all my supplies handy.
I sure hope I'm remembering everything I need!
The project above represents a
LONG TERM commtiment.
Here it is so far.
All those circles will eventually have to be joined together...
somehow or other!!
aaah!!!
I might get tired of working on that one
so I'm bringing a no brainer
for the middle of my kitchen table.
What do you call it when it's
~smaller than a table runner
~ the size of a placement
~used in the middle of the table
?????

One pretty piece of fabric....
a simple border.....


And lots of embellishments to doodle with!
I'm ready.

See you in a few days!
Wonder if I'll come home with some loot??!

  8. Enjoy your trip. These are two great projects. I've got a long-term hand pieced project too, though I haven't looked at it in a couple of years. It's VERY long term.
