Trip Sewing

Once again, I am heading to Arizona! Yay! It is starting to feel like going home now. I love it! This time, I will be doing a bit of dog sitting for Daughter #2. As she is deployed, she has someone to house sit and dog sit, but the sitter has to be away and so I am taking over for a bit. I have a sewing machine at Daughter #2’s house, so I am taking a bit of sewing with me. First of all, I plan to get my swap blocks done for the Broken Dishes swap being hosted by Barb at Fun with Barb. Here is my test block to make sure they all come out the right size!

And here are my cut pieces. I will have to put them in another container. I’m not taking that enamelware on the plane!

I will be making forty blocks from each red/muslin combination. 

I plan to take my vintage daisy blocks for my hand work for the plane.


I’m really pleased with how they are coming along!

I have blog  posts scheduled ahead, but as always, family comes first on these trips! So I though I love and read every comment, I will not be able to respond often. I appreciate your understanding in this.

It will be wonderful to spend time with my son and his family. I can’t wait to snuggle my two little boys out there! They are growing so fast.

Take care!
