The first thing I did after checking into the hotel and hauling all my quilts in was to take off the bedspread and add my one of my quilts! I brought my Arlington Square quilt to sleep under on this trip, it’s in Nickel Quilts and The Big Book of Nickel Quilts. It really brightens up a hotel room!
The next thing I did was to set up my quilting area. Featherweights travel great and I always keep it in it’s case, ready to go, and never have to worry about leaving the cord or accessories behind. The number of times I have taught workshops where someone left part of their machine at home is pretty amazing!
I have a nice big room with enough space that I can have my quilting table right next to the computer table. My quilting table consists of two things, first an adjustable height table that I purchased at Menards and extended work surface on it that increases the area by about 25%.
The extended work surface is actually an Upcycled bottom to a small baby crib. Being able to have both of my workstations set up allows me to switch between quilting and computer work during my downtime without being crowed in all on one desk.
More reasons for me to drive rather than fly!
