I was in my lns this past weekend to purchase some fabric for vacation projects. The girls in the shop looked at me strange when I said vacation projects. Doesn't everyone kit up projects just to take on vacation?
Well - maybe I am the weird one! I look forward to some having a new project and some extended stitching time almost as much as vacation. I am going to see my brother in Pennsylvania at the end of the month and want something fun to work on while traveling. I am flying alone and can't wait for 3 hours of mostly uninterrupted stitching!!! I know I am odd but, I thought everyone did this? I have different types of projects depending on where I will be doing them - like I usually only stitch on ornaments or smalls during sports season because I can do them in hand. I have a sampler with the fill in to do that I take to stitch-ins because I don't have to pay attention to it and can talk while still getting some stitching done.
My vacation projects are usually larger count fabric with not a lot of color changes and not too huge. Here is what I am taking this year.
I may not be able to wait until next Friday the colors are so great. I converted the called for colors to Vikki Clayton Hand Dyed silk.
I hope this photo comes out since I took it with my phone. I am researching a small camera to buy since it appears I am the only member of the family without a camera. I would borrow my dh or dd or ds's camera but then I have to learn how to use it and connect it to the pc, blah, blah, blah. I am looking for one of these cool new ones that upload directly to the web. Will keep you posted on what I decide. If you have one you like, please leave me a comment about the model. I would love to hear what anyone else uses.
I am going to get some coffee - see y'all soon!
