Judy over at Patchwork Times is hosting a Quiltathon this weekend... and I'm participating... sort of...
Can you say Road Trip?
That is what I'm preparing for - instead of sewing this weekend.
I'm going to be leaving this week and heading off to Texas. The Engineer is going to be working there for a bit and since he's about 1 hour away from my folks - I'm gonna throw the dogs in the car and head out there and join him for a while.
Well I won't actually throw the dogs in the car... they like the car! Although I've never tried to drive 2 or 3 days with them... we shall see. My GPS says 24 hours - which I could easily do in 2 days if it was just me... not sure how it will go with the dogs.
Anyway - so instead of sewing this weekend I'm preparing all my stuff to take along with me. I have 2 projects to take: one is a long overdue one that requires a lot of hand piecing (exactly why it's long overdue) so it's all ready to go. Another is the one I've been cutting up floral's for... can't show you yet.... it's a secret! It occurred to me that I should just go ahead and cross cut the strips down to the sizes I need then I won't have to drag my big shape cut ruler with me.
So I'm gathering necessary things... my quilting stuff will most likely take longer to pack and occupy more space in the car than my clothes... but I suppose I could mail the clothes...
