See, I'm not the only one..

My friend Amber has written a great post on quilting in public.  She doesn't restrict herself to the car, but flaunts it out on the playground too! 

Have you quilted in public lately?  Take a photo and share it with us!


  1. My EPP kit comes with me wherever I sit and wait and thats why i plan to name the quilt "Sitting and Waiting": Doctors office, surgery waiting area, oil change, when car gets worked on, windshield repair. I started it when hubby had spinal cord injury 2.5 years ago...and spent a great deal of time in hospital. Unfortunately...I don't get to work on it often...but it will get done eventually. Maybe he needs another long hospital stay...LOL!!!

  2. Sue! take a picture!
    if you want, you can do a guest blog post right here~ send me your email, ok? jessunderquilts (at) yahoo dot com.

    (oh, and don't wish for more hospital time, how about a nice long relaxing vacation instead?)

  3. When I took Boo to gymnastics, her class was an hour and half... I always had some applique or hand sewing with me... but then everyone kept bothering me.... LOL... Airplanes, always. ;-)

  4. Okay - I must admit that I only sew at playgrounds that are toddler safe and pretty much empty. Too many other kids around or anything more than 3 feet off the ground makes it too hard to sew and watch him at the same time!

  5. I'm far too lazy to cary a whole quilt / quilting supplies about with me to a public place. I'm impressed at those of you who are not! I do knit in public plenty often though.

  6. When my children were little, I took my quilt with me everywhere and quilted. I quilted in the backyard while they played...and I quilted at CCD while I waited for them to finish class. That is one of my favorite things about hand quilting...that it is so portable.

My Travel Quilt Story

**ETA-- Check out my completed Travel Quilt #3 here**

I don't know about you, but I check my blogger stats a couple times a day.  It's nice to see how readers find me, who has linked to me, and where they are.  In the last week though, there's been a gap, a hole.  I usually have at least a couple hits a week from readers in Japan, this week-- none.  Of course with such tragedy, I can't expect them to take time out (and use valuable electricity) to check in on my little ol' blog here, but still, the absence makes me worry about them even more.  I was thinking about how I can go back to  posting more about quilts but still satisfy my need to talk about Japan.. 

Victoria took this great photo of me at her retreat last weekend and I've wanted to write a post about it, and then it clicked, "Oh Yeah~" let's go back to the quilt that started me off on my EPP obsession..
Here we go.  Travel Quilt #1, aka "Ayane's Star" See, I was going to J…

I have not even sewn one stitch this week.  I did manage to find my cutting table and mat, and it was nice to see them after what seemed like too long, but I didn't cut anything.  I didn't press anything.  I didn't do much other than ponder how I will organize my new space.

If you have stitched though, please tell us!

You don't realize how much you are actually going to lose when you go through a divorce.  You mostly think of the things you don't like and how you will be rid of them.  The things you'll gain like personal choice and freedom.  I knew I would lose big things.  Time with my children.  My home.  
But there are other things that are gone that have had much bigger impact than I could have anticipated.  Like my washer and dryer.  
I spend an awful lot of time at the laundromat these days, but also doing laundry wherever else I'm able to.  Not having free laundry access has greatly influenced my routines and the choices I make.  Not unlike when I lived in Washburn and would wear only light colors one week and only dark colors the next.  You choose clothes that wash easily and wear well.  You are strategic with your wardrobe choices based on when you can do laundry again..
