Today we went on a road trip. Two and a half hours each way. With three Littlies this length of journey is largely not a good combination and from experience we generally get one good journey (normally on the way out - they'll sleep!). The return journey is normally best not spoken about!
I decided to make the best of today's journey by taking some sewing projects with me.
Sewing in the ends on my latest cushion.....
Doing a bit more of the binding on my quilt.....I so wanna get it finished very soon!
The downsides of having the passenger seat in the car as your crafting office;
✿ When you go round corners/over bumps the scissors have a tendency to go disappearing down the side of the car seat (total number of times: 2)
✿ In retrospect, weaving in the ends on my cushion was probably not the best idea - trying to feed thread through the tiny hole of a needle is not very easy when the cars juddering around (total number of mis-threads: too many to count!)
✿ I normally crochet/knit in the car - sewing was a nice change but I think I'll probably stick to yarn-based activities going forward!
I'm afraid there aren't many more pictures of the day but it was a good day, despite the drizzle. And on the upside we also had a good journey back. Yippee!
I hope you all had a good day,
