That was me this past two days. I had to travel from Sioux Falls to Chamberlain. Never hear of it?
It is about 130 miles from home and I had meetings there two days in a row. I stayed all night in a hotel that is on the edge of the 'city'.
There isn't much there--unless you love to hunt a fish but for little me, with no vehicle and darkness that approaches at 5:15 pm, I had NOTHING to do!
So, I loaded up my beloved Bernina 430 and a project and set to work.
My grandson, Simon, needs a new winter coat so grandma agreed to create one for him. I am using orange and navy, much like the man's jacket shown, to create it for him. He also LOVES the cartoon Paw Patrol, so I ordered some fleece with the puppies featured on it.
I started the jacket and I must say, I am quite smitten with this pattern and how professional it looks, even in my semi-constructed state! It is some work, but making coats/jackets/multiple pieced patterns with many details is so stinking satisfying!!!
I am loving this pattern and thought I'd show you my set up in the room I stayed in for the night.
I am loving this project! Have you ever taken your sewing machine to a hotel room and sewn? Did it go well? Do tell!
