Road Trip Sewing

So hubby, mom, & I took a little road-trip last week and it afforded me some concentrated - or at least frequent - car sewing time. After binding my recent do.Good Stitches quilt, I settled in on my Teeny Tiny Trip Around the World and made very good progress!

As I posted on Instagram, I needed a little change of pace and decided to mix things up a bit and combine colors in a single round. Well that didn't go quite as planned, so rather than a very ordered sequence, things turned out a little more random, "original" as mom would say, and honestly, I'm just fine with it.

It's kinda weird how the 'passion' for these projects ebb and flow but during our week away, I couldn't get enough of it. Swirling and pressing several rounds once I got home was rather taxing, but it's done now, so nice and neat, and I'm ready to continue stitching on.


  1. I can definitely relate to long term projects having an ebb and flow vibrancy and interest. I like the "original" and non patterned round with two colors and the back is super satisfying to look at!

  2. Love the two color round and the sort-of-randomness adds to its charm!

  3. Look at all the color and interlocking pieces!
    Teeny Tiny is a treasure.

  4. Interesting to see the back of this project ! I can't imagine sewing in the car. Probably because of the sort of roads we have around here :-))

  5. Over the years I have had quite a few "forever projects" that I did on road trips.I really love the look of your yellow and white row as it adds some spark to the mix.
