Well sort of – but only a day trip. Since our camper was totaled last December, cancelling our winter trip, we haven’t done much traveling. But now that the warmer weather is just around the corner, we’re planning on taking more day trips in Central New York.
Today was a perfect excuse for the first one this year. We picked up my new car, a Ford Fusion, and just had to take it on a road trip.
We decided on a drive to the Finger Lakes, specifically Seneca Lake wine country. We’ll be hosting a nature photo tour of Finger Lakes Wineries this summer and needed to line up some of the photo shoots.
So of course I packed up my current applique project to take along. Any hand work, especially needle turn applique is so portable and easy to bring along on any kind of car trip. I like to work on projects while riding or whenever my photographer husband ‘finds’ the perfect picture and just has to stop.
Everything neatly fits into a small satchel that can easily fit in my purse.
The weather could have been a little warmer. The temperature seems to be stuck in the 20’s lately(should be in the 40’s this time of year). It was a mostly sunny day with only had a few snow flurries to accompany us; not the multiple ‘inches’ of snow that we’ve had to contend with lately.
Yes I did drive the car off the lot but turned over the driving to my husband after our stop for lunch. I needed to make sure that I could comfortably quilt in the car. I was pleased that the passenger door has two decent receptacles to hold my quilting notions. What luck!
I thought when I took this car for a test drive that it was perfect for me as a driver and now I’ve found that is also fits my needs as a passenger whose passion is ‘quilting’!There is always time to quilt!
