Today Kathy of Kathy's Quilts asked, "Where do you stitch "on the go" and what are your tips for successful portable hand stitching?" Well, after I thought about it, I can't really say that I ever stitch "on the go". Since I'm retired, I usually am only on the go when I am running errands or traveling. Usually, when I'm traveling, I am the driver. I do need to come up with a project I can take to sit and stitch group meetings. I've only attended one and had a binding to hand-stitch. I am looking for a small project that I can just grab on my way. Any suggestions would be welcome. Maybe I'll kit up a small quilt that I can hand-piece. I tried hexagons, but they make my hands ache if I do more than a couple at a time.
This morning I was able to get some more redwork done on my Trim the Tree pillow top. For the most part I am liking the Cosmo embroidery thread. It is already 2-ply, so I don't have to divide the threads like with DMC embroidery thread. The Cosmo has a nice sheen to it, too. I finished the ladder.
