Do you craft and travel?
I have met folks who bring their travel machine with them on the shortest of trips and those who take a break completely. I tend to bring embroidery and then ignore it - just knowing it's there just in case I feel crafty makes me happy!
What's your crafty travel style?
I was taking my beading with me for a while but I haven't unpacked it since I moved house 7 months ago. I usually end up taking crossword puzzles and books with me instead but since I discovered Op Shops, there is always something to pore over.
well, I normaly take a book with me to read on the plane ( needles not allowed) and some yarn/crochet - and now recently that I learn how to knitt, i will be taking them too.
When I went home for a couple of months I missed my sewing machine like mad , so mom had to buy a little one for "her" LOL
I just pick up something that needs hand-stitching. I have tackled many projects during travel, that I would never finish otherwise because I tend to avoid hand-stitching when I'm at home. Although my husband often worries about my poking our daughter. What does he know :-/
Do you know.. I really don't take along sewing projects,while traveling.. I normally break from sewing, and enjoy the 'Look for fabric and notions ,in a new place.'
However... I have asthma, and I usually end up in the hospital about twice a year.[yuk]..and I can not stand the laying in that bed..doing nothing..ha.So.. I always.. bring my sewing books to look at and study., Hand sewing that I always have available to do.. And one time, I even had my daughter go home and bring me some fabric, scissors, pins ,pattern of some Dresses I was wanting to do for the grandaughters.. I managed to cut them out on the hospital bed..Not fun...but I succeeded.. Dr. Creekmore [my family doctor] told me...he had never had a patient who sewed in the hospital..I was the first.ha
And I REALLY wanted my sewing machine..but Hubby said,"Oh Lord No...surely you are not going to try to bring a sewing machine to the hospital."hahaha
