change of scenery

Since we got back from London I had been in a bit of a quilty rut-- I just couldn't find a comfortable place in the house to sew while George was at school.  Yes, we've been in the house for weeks on end (with no car.. I've felt "trapped" on more than one occasion) and I've tried to sew in a bunch of different places (thankfully, the house is quite big), but something was up with my subconcious comfort level and I just couldn't take it anymore..
so I left.
I took George to school and then walked to Starbucks, got a coffee, and sat and stitched there for 2 hours. 

Much better.  Much more "me".
Have you been stitching in public lately?

  1. Love that idea - just might have to try it! Might get the creativity flowing in a different direction.

  2. Sometimes the house can feel like a coffin. That was a good idea. It looks like the Starbucks in London are more brightly lit than the ones here in the states. I prefer London's style.

  3. Totally! I worked on some rose star blocks for 90 minutes in the dealership waiting room while the car was being serviced and inspected ;-)

  9. Spring and summer I travel with husband. So my handwork has been in airports and lobby of hotels. I'll find a corner and I'm happy!

  11. Haha! I love it, stitching for a couple hours at Starbucks. :D You know, I haven't stitched in public for quite a while. Before they started college (the last 2 years), I used to stitch at swim practices, band practices, and high school football games. Since then, the only stitching I do outside home is at guild meetings. How blase!
