I did not take my Phoenix bird with me, which was a mistake, but did take the portrait that I had designed and was ready to start. It is a small project so was perfect to transport. It started out great, but gradually devolved into a practice project. Below is a small crop of what I did.
TIP: Don't get too discouraged when a new technique doesn't work out right. Sit down and figure out where you went wrong. If you find you don't like working that technique, that is a positive too. It is OK to say, "forget it" like I did with landscape quilting! If you enjoy doing it and are happy with some of it, keep plugging. Each project will be better as you become more competent.
I had a great blog-cation, but it is nice to be home and set up to sew in my own space. My sewing room is now cleared of all the stuff that was transported back to WI and MN and feels almost spacious.
Sew a happy seam this week.
