    I take hand work with me and then I look up any quilt shops along the way. There is always time for me to slip away while my husband and sons to something else. So I guess I get the best of both. On the drive home I am always planning the quilt I will make with my new vaction fabric.

    I always take hand sewing along w/ me in a an old leather purse. I have it set up w/ pins, thread, needles, sm ruler, pattern piece, and enough cut pcs to last as long as I'm out. When I get home, I set it up again and leave it on the wall side of the bedrm doorknob. I always take a book, notebk too.

    I rarely get to use it, however. Just at night, and I'm too tired from all we do all day to sew much. I don't sew/ reading the car cus hubs drives and he likes to have a copilot to talk with if hes driving alot.

    The things we do takes us to places I've never been and I eat it up. We went to New Orleans a month ago and walked all over the place, and road the trollies all over. Took tons of pics, went to museums, ate local foods, talked to people from there on the trollies, etc - it just feeds my mind and I am never so bored to be thinking I'm "missing" something back home. If you do that you're actually not experienceing the "now" of where you are. I want to know everything there is to know about everything -lol. If you don't learn something new every day you've let that day slide by - sharet

    I love love love to travel, see new things, experience different cultures, etc. Haven't got to do it since getting out of the Navy, and now the kids are always scheduled. But I always carried something with me; cross-stitch or some such portable project.

    I take my crochet or knitting on vacations when I can't take my machine. I feel like I'm getting something done, it keeps my hands busy and I don't miss my little sewing studio and stash as much.

    Just spent a week in the White Mountains, about two hours from home. Maybe it was too close to home but I kept thinking about all the things that needed to be done at home and, about my fur babies. It didn't help that it rained for three days straight!
