Todays office

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,

Your projects look lovely. I like to knit or crochet in the car, it's such wasted time otherwise isn't it!

Oh I recognise that lovely gold design, is that cushion for you?

Did you see the card I have done to go with your lovely cushion?

Not long now till you move over here, hope it is going well.

Hee hee, I find crafting in the car a bit of a challenge too. I've mostly given up now as hubby is a little 'erratic' in his driving style!

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog the other day. I wish I knew where I got my 'can do' from, if I did I'd send you some ! :) It's most unlike me, but I'm going to go with it, while it's here!

I agree, although sewing was a step too far i think, it made me feel a bit car-sick!

:) It's quite recognisable isn't it?! This one was a gift for my husbands Aunts & Uncle's 50th anniversary. Hopefully I'll post some pictures soon. Hope you're well x

Well I can't wait to see what you do next! I'm starting to feel more 'can do' so watch this space.... x
