Hand applique is totally portable, THANK GOD!! I posted block #5 of "Baltimore Rhapsody" yesterday, but I just had to share this today, especially for all you busy moms/grandmas out there...
Here I am working in my most recent "sewing room away from home"...my Subaru car! My daughter recently finished her required Level One driving course for the state of Michigan. It lasted several weeks with 2 evening sessions a week. To keep from spending all my time driving to and fro, I decided to just camp out, in the car, and get some work done (about the time I would arrive at home, it would be time to go back and get her...sigh).
I have my little thread/snip-it container on the dash, NPR playing on the radio, a diet Coke in the cup holder, a light hanging around my neck, and a little battery fan in case it gets a little stuffy in there. Everything but a potty (should buy a smaller pop...). I think I need to install a trailer hitch and pull around a little 5th wheel, set up as a sewing room.
I do get a few stares from other parents, but that doesn't stop me. One evening, a policeman stopped and walked over to talk to me. Maybe he got a tip from the Department of Homeland Security that a strange woman in a little gray car was casing the AAA office. He was friendly enough, but he did ask my name...isn't that weird? Maybe I'm now on a terrorist watch list somewhere..."dangerous mom with a needle"...

I'm having a problem with Blogger...maybe some of you are having the same problem and may even know how to fix it?!? When I try and leave a comment on some blogs I follow/visit, I'm not signed in and I am asked to "select a profile." I do that, but I never get a window to put my user name and password, so I can't leave a comment. I have been able to leave comments on these sites before. If I have time to try and find an email address on the blog in question, I leave a comment that way, but sometimes the link to an email address isn't obvious.
I have not commented in a while on Madamme Samm's "Sew We Quilt!" site, and others, and I can't find a link to her email ANYWHERE! Help!
Have you experienced this?? Please let me know if you have a fix! I am not comfortable as a lurker, and I have not had as many commenters or new followers lately on my blog and I'm worried that some people are having the same trouble here. My page count is growing...FAST...so people are seeing my page. I am so close to having 500 followers, but the number has not budged!
Enjoy sewing this weekend...if you see me somewhere, stitching in my car, come say hello (and don't alert law enforcement...I am harmless)!
