I'm getting ready to take a trip to visit family in San Antonio for a few days...family wedding and all.
I don't like to travel without some sort of project (or more) to work on. I like to call it "Working Forward". In other words, continuing to work on projects, or parts of projects, even though I can't lug lots of sewing equipment with me on the plane. I keep it relatively simple.
Another project on my wish list is absolutely perfect for this trip. It's "A Smocked Coin Purse" by Terry Poskay and it's part of the SAGA Stitches Program. This one is #8 of the Smocking Project Series that can be taught as a SAGA Chapter program. I'm just doing it for myself. I thought it was a really cute, quick project.
DMC Coloris cotton floss #4509 is perfect for this because it has the colors of the fabric in the skein.
