Over the river and through the woods, to granchildren's house I go!

Woohoo!  I'm currently packing for a visit to see my daughter, son-in-law, and the grands.  I'll be gone for a bit over two weeks.
Lets see - what to take, what to take?
I've definitely packed up my Quilty 365 project.  I keep it in a carrying box anyway, so this time it's just going to get carried a little further.


And I've packed up my 365 Challenge blocks, along with an assortment of fat quarters, fat eighths, strips, and charms in reds, blues, and browns.  My daughter has said I can use her sewing machine, so maybe I'll be able to catch up.  And maybe even keep up.  Hey, it could happen!



And of course, while I was sorting and packing those challenge fabrics, this little piglet insisted on being made.


Because piglets can be just a bit pushy, you know.
And since I was making a piglet anyway, it made sense to kit up a few more, just in case I had a sudden urge to pig it up.


And since it's the end of the month and I don't know what April's color will be, I made another kit.


Just in case Angela picks green for the April color.
Of course, pink is a possibility, too.


You know.  Spring type colors.  Just being prepared.  (And check out the background fabric in the pink block.  Heehee!)

So, adding a couple of knitting projects to the pile means I'm all packed up and ready to go.

Oh, wait.  I should probably pack some clothes, too...

Wear lots of layers as you travel - leaves room in the suitcase. Have a wonderful time!

Are you supposed to change your clothes on vacation?

Looks like you are prepared for some fun. We'll miss you!

Dorothy said...

I'm always far more worried about what projects to take than clothes. Have fun!

Huh. I never thought of quilting as a portable craft. Learn something new every day.

Angela threw you a curve ball with orange didn't she? Caught me off guard too but at least I'm at home with my stash!
