Dog Days of Summer Are Coming
It’s not even July and already this summer looks to be a long, hot one. The other day I had to hem yards and yards of satin and cotton for a dress and a skirt. Sitting upstairs in a hot stuffy room I felt a bit like Mr. Rochester’s wife locked in a hot attic. Nothing like using a hot iron all day to really question your choices in hobbies.
Even with dripping sweat, I push on. My next sewing project is to finish a simple silk skirt. I need to finish a number of projects before I head out on a summer road trip. I can’t bring my sewing machine with me this time, so I’ll need to find something to do.
What do you like to do when traveling and a sewing doesn’t fit into your vacation plans? I like to load up on sewing, quilting and home decor magazines and e-books. Plus, I always have a journal nearby to jot down notes, plans and future sewing ideas for when I get back home.
Currently, I’m browsing around for a fun quilt project. So many ideas to choose from, it’s hard to decide. To be continued on that one!
When I can’t bring a sewing machine I always bring a knit project with me when I travel. It’s the perfect activity to do while traveling. Bonus: I don’t get car sick when I knit.
What do you do when traveling? Do you bring a lot of projects, or take some needed time off?
