Travelling Pattern... The Pattern That Travels With ME!

There has been an awful lot of chatter about travelling patterns on my blog lately.  Today's entry is about a different kind of travelling pattern... one that is going on the road with me!


By the time you're reading this I'm working my way through security and customs at the airport, I'm on my way to the Charleston, S.C. area!


I'm excited not only to see my BFF from high school, Claire but the new man in her life, Zachary! The little man I stitched up Teresa Wentzler's Birth Announcement for.


I've decided while I travel this summer (I have more than one trip planned), I'm going to work on just one project.  Last summer I worked on Ink Cirlces Cirque des Circles so this summer its going to be Cirque des Coeurs.  One colour projects are just so much easier while on the plane or in the car.  I made a small start on it back in February when I was flying to the DR and haven't touched it since.  We'll see how far I get on this first trip... I've got a lot of stitching time, as I'm going to be stuck at the airport in Detroit for over 5 hours!  When I booked my flight, initially I had a barely 2 hour layover but Delta decided to change my departure time from 9:30am to 7:00am and since this is not a domestic flight, I need to be at the airport 2 hours early, which means 5:00am!  I've got to get up at stupid, dark, o'clock since the airport isn't right around the corner!

Nice travelling project.

Hope you have a great trip - there aren't many things better than seeing old friends.

That birth announcement is stunning! Great choice for your "take along" pattern.

Those early alarms for early flights is so hard. I really don't like getting up that early!

Have a great time here in the south!

love Annette
ps love your travel project too!

Brigitte said...

That's a whole new notion of the "travelling pattern", lol. Well, I couldn't imagine to travel with a project that 37 colours.
Have a great stay with your friend.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Have a great trip. I can't wait to hear about your friend's reaction to the birth sampler.

I'm guessing DMC 115 for the Ink Circles project? Another one for us to enjoy vicariously this summer.

Karoline said...

Have a great time

Sara said...

Catching up on some of your recent posts, gorgeous stitching as always! Enjoy your trip and can't wait to see some travel pics when you get back.

Stitchers Row turned out wonderfully, love the changes you made to brighten and bling it up a bit. It will be such fun to look at when you're doing various stitchy projects and other times. Can't wait to see Cirque des Coeurs grow, with just needing to keep track of one color this would be a good traveling project. Your earlier finish of Circles was so pretty, will be fun to see how this goes. I'm not familiar with design for this one, so off to check it out :)
