What to take...

on a road trip that involves some flying too?

Mr PnP and I are off to New Zealand for 3+ weeks 


Now that the cabled jacket is complete...

I've returned to my embroidery...

Don't ask me what those black dots are?

a hoop I've been working on for months...

front ...

and a better idea of the colours from the back.

Now, where did I put that pattern?

I'm thinking I might take this drawing 

Anna Maria Horner did for me back in June?

I'll make it into a bag of some sort when I get 


using these fabrics. 

And maybe I'll take one of these cute panels, 

I picked up this week!

 adding some back and satin stitch and French knots 

here and there.

See you in November!

Happy days....



  1. Enjoy your trip to Nw Zealand! I’ve seen the most amazing photo’s and video’s of the Nw Zealand landscape! Love your cabled jacket!

  2. Enjoy! We are planning to go in Spring 2020.

  3. Have a wonderful time.
    Well done with the finish on the jacket. It looks lovely.
    And that embroidery is delightful, too. Is it very big?
    I think your idea with the panels will work really well. I think I might keep and eye out for that one.
    Looking forward to hearing about your travels.

  4. I love your sweater and your road projects. Beautiful embroidery and amazed how neat your stitching is on the back. Safe and happy travels, I'm looking forward to the photos.

  5. Those panels are adorable. Perfect for embroidery. Hope you, your sweater jacket, and Mr PnP have a great trip

  6. How fun for you to be having another get-away! That's such a long time to be gone. Hope you see some great things, and don't have a whole lot of time for stitching. I mean... it's a get away from the usual. Safe travels.

  7. This is always my dilemma, too! I took three stitcheries with me, and only ended up working on one (there wasn't that much travel time during daylight), but it's a start. I love all your choices, and love love that sweater jacket you made. Wow! Have a great time, and see you later!

  8. I have always thought that if ever I could travel far, I'd love to go to New Zealand. It must be a wondrous place. Have a wonderful time.

  9. I hope you have a fabulous trip. I love your cabled cardigan. It's funny how we stitchers think more about what project to pack rather than what clothing to take. Safe journey!

  10. I hope you have a great time in New Zealand! I'd love to go there one day, but it's such a long trip! I'm curious to see what you're doing with those cute animal panels :-) Safe travels!
