Hmmm.

You know how people always say they need a vacation to recover from their vacation?  I'm not sure what I need. 

What does a person need after a trip where their luggage....their rugged, hard sided, 10 year warranty luggage looks like this by the 3rd day?


The Central American country I visited has umpteen million miles of roads that look like this. 
Honestly, it takes about 1 1/2 hours to travel 30 miles on these bone jarring roads.... and the picture just doesn't do them justice. 

Maybe I'm calling this adventure a vacation and it wasn't a vacation.  It was an adventure.  I think I need bed rest because I'm not hard sided or rugged and my 10 year warranty expired.  I did, however, avoid being eaten alive by bugs.  Thanks to the Passport Health Office who gave me some serious bug spray.  I didn't read the directions until half way in...oops...only spray on clothing before putting them on.  Well, all the same...it worked great.

Anyone else working on the new Lizzie Kate Halloween mystery piece?  I started it by accident.  I really wasn't going to work on it but it came in the mail, I had an hour or so free, and my other focus piece was in an entirely different part of the house...so what's a girl to do?  Stitch what's at hand.

  1. Sorry, that picture doesn't do the roads justice - they look pretty good. Hope you recover quickly from your bumps and bruises. Have delayed doing the LK piece - don't like mysteries when I stitch - I'll wait until the whole thing is released. lol

  2. Ugh your luggage looks like it took a beating. I can only imagine how my bones would feel after riding on those roads.

    Oh thank goodness for the industrial bug spray! I would have made the same mistake you did about spraying it on myself. Who reads the directions on a can of bug spray anyway???
