Gathering Threads....

...and linens, and needles, books, charts, etc...
I can't possibly spend time on vacation without the things I love most!

some folks bring their favorite pillows with them when they go away~
oh...I bring my favorite scissors...
about 6 pair.
(we've talked about this "scissor" problem I have before, remember?)
and I bring enough linen to blanket a king-sized bed...
I don't know why.
"...just in case...."
I'm also hoping to get to a couple of needlework shops in CT, perhaps MASS. too~
I'll take pics of them for you!

Mom's 80th birthday will be on June 30th...but we'll be celebrating it on the 29th,
with a gathering of my siblings, nieces & nephews.
on the 30th, we'll head up to Mystic, CT to the aquarium...
...maybe the seaport.

again I'll take pics for you...

Blessings from the Farm,

I know exactly what you mean! Whether I'm gone for an overnighter or for a week, I have to take along some sort of stitching!
Happy Birthday to Mom!!! Hope you have an awesome vacation!!! Look forward to "hearing" all about it!

Natalia said...

Oh, I so understand what you mean... When I travel on vacation or even to dinner at a friend's house I have to take linen and thread to stitch with... There is something comforting about that, isn't it?
