Life is often surprising and changes can occur in a moment. I have been reminded of this once again. As many of you know, Daughter #2 is currently deployed to an undisclosed location. She found out last weekend that her house/dog sitter will soon be moving out. Not a lot she can do about this from the other side of the globe! So, I am moving to Arizona to take over until she returns. I have about three weeks to wrap things up here at home and expect to be out there 3-4 months.
I have a Featherweight sewing machine already at her house. But I would really like to use one of my Singer 301s. I’m trying to decide if it is worth it to ship one out there. Obviously, I won’t have access to my long arm, so I will mostly be piecing, but if I had a 301, I could do some quilting as well. I have a small cutting mat there already that I gave to Daughter #2 to use. And if I need a really big one, I think I know someone that would let me come over and borrow hers! (I’m looking at you, Zenia!)
I am actually considering taking a vintage top and hand quilting it. Is that crazy?
Help me out here. If you were moving away for 3-4 months, how many projects would you take and what tools would you feel were essential to take with you?
I predict the next few weeks will be a bit crazy as I prepare for this adventure. So responding to comments may be a bit sporadic and posting may be as well.
Have a great day!
