The Best Part of traveling for me...is the quilters along the way. I don't know about you, but I get homesick...not for my house, but for the people in my life which is made up mostly of stitchers. The number one way I take care of myself is to make sure I connect to quilters along the way. Not only do I create an emotional support system wherever I am, but I learn about things I had never heard of in the crafting world.
The Quilters Market in Tucson provides a space for open sew every Tuesday morning. Stitchers around the area gather to do what we do best...share and stitch...or stitch and share. It is also a place for the homesick traveler to meet and be embraced. Virginia, who traveled to Tucson and is here for a short while, shared her knowledge of Locker Hook. I had never heard about it, but anything where you use your scrap stash is a good idea to me!
And since I have a dream...of someday making a Hexie Something, which is something made out of Hexies, LOL, I was inspired by Nancy's Hexie Blocks! They are beautiful and my dreams of Hexies may become a reality because my path crossed with Nancy, and what a perfect travel project!
After all, we are called Anna and G On The Road, and finding ways to connect and be inspired is one of the ways that I keep on rolling. Here is one last show 'n tell...I love how this quilter has adapted a Piece O' Cake Design, "Welcome to the North Pole," into her own piece of art!
See you next week with some gardening ideas, LOL.
Stay tuned and travel along with us on Quilt Roadies...where we are connecting one quilter and one shop at a time!!
