I am a novice traveler but I think I am flexible enough to make it work. And of course, this place is just beautiful! Knitting, hiking, great food, history, tradition, and lovely weather. The only unraveling was a few rows of cuff! The internet is not good so I will get back to regular posting next week.
Last Friday I headed east to join my quilting friends for an annual retreat. I am not quilting much these days and with the chaos and stress that has been my life lately, I contemplated skipping this year. In the end, I was happy that I went. I stitched up four new project bags, a pair of pants for our tiny person, and a gadget bag that was much fussier than I would normally tackle but since I sewed this one alongside one of my friends so it was fun. There was a fair amount of unsewing (the quilting equivalent of unraveling). There was also good food, catching up, coffee, wine, and plenty of laughter.
Between sewing projects, I made some good progress on my most recent knit. I don’t think I will finish before I leave but this could be my travel knitting, at least for the first part of my trip. Then I will need to acquire the materials for another project once I get to Shetland. I still need to make some final decisions on travel clothing. I have two smallish books to take and leave along the way and two audio books on my phone. Departure time is so close!
Thanks for hosting us Kat!
I am looking for ants. You see I am anxious to see my peonies bloom and I know that those little insects help unstick the tight buds. But, in typical June fashion, all I see are raindrops. June gloom. Oh well. Lots of other things to look forward to on this first day of a new month.
Two days until our tiny person is six months old,
Nine more days of school,
One graduation ceremony,
Three more admin meetings,
Two weeks to get ready for a 10k,
Twenty one days until my annual quilt retreat,
Thirty days until #grandshetlandadventure.
Thanks to Carole and Kat for Think Write Thursday
I am re-reading my Shetland magazines, thinking about what to pack, and dreaming of being out of cell phone range for almost 3 weeks!
This week is getting filled with those kind of tasks that you would rather would hand over to someone else but there is a long weekend coming up so . . .
Thanks Kat for hosting us each week.
