What shall I bring ?

On the way to the Quilt Show where I'm going with DW, DD1 and DD2, we will stop and visit several Châteaux in the Loire Valley. I'm not sure I will have much time for stitching but I hate going somewhere without anything!! Just in case !!! Am I the only one ???
But what to bring with me to stitch or sew that is small, easy and relaxing ? A stitchery !!!
So I have prepared The Blueberry Cottage stitchery to bring along.

A few years ago I stitched one by Lynette Anderson. The wooden button gives the stitchery a certain charm.

It was so fun that I decided to give it another try lately in order to stitch this Un Chat dans L'Aiguille needle pocket for DD2.

When I'm back, I will tell you about the Quilt Show in Nantes and the classes I attended ;-)
Until later,


  1. Enjoy the show and the chateaux,smart to take some stitching stuff.

  2. I think we all end up bringing stitching along on trips -- just in case! lol! Usually too much too! Have fun at the quilt show! I'm hoping to get to my local show for the first time in years.

  3. oh que de jolis modèles presentés; à tres vite..

  4. Yes David I agree, always take some stitching, cannot wait to see it finished.
    Have a lovely weekend and hope the weather is better than in the UK.

  5. Have a great time at the show, David - I'm sure you'll show us some wonderful things. Your stitching is just lovely.

  6. Bravo pour ce blog magnifique et ces ouvrages si raffinés !
    Moi non plus, je ne pars jamais nulle part sans emporter un (faux : au moins cinq) truc à broder. On n'est jamais trop prudent ;-)

  7. Oh yes, I take stitching projects with me when I travel. As always, your work is especially nice. I am certain your daughter loves her little pocket. I am going to try to share this article with you. It appeared in one of our local newspapers this morning. I thought you might be interested.
