Road Trippin’ and Hand Stitchin’

Road trippin’ and hand stitchin’ are great companions!

I’ve always preferred to be passenger on road trips. Even more so now that I’m into hand stitching.

I made excellent use of the ride time to San Diego this weekend and completed the hand quilting on this pillow cover, a leftover block from my Arkansas Traveler quilt.

Can you see the red stitches in the diamonds? I love the texture. It reminds me of fluffy popcorn. I see a finished pillow cover in the near future.

Here are some pics from the trip. Next time I’d like to go sailing.

We toured the historic Old Point Loma Lighthouse and museum and I just realized I didn’t get any pics of the outside of the structure. BUT, I did get pics of these fascinating lights!

And I knew there’d be quilts inside.

Everything was behind plexiglass to be sure nothing was touched, as the lighthouse tour was a self-guided one.

We also went whale watching. You can see those pics on my Instagram.

Until next time, happy stitchin’ and God bless.

  1. Wow! The glass prisms in that light house were amazing. All those antique pillows and quilt are a contrast to those sailboats. It’s like stepping back then out of time.
    Glad you had a nice trip. I like your red stitching, too.

  2. I love that old quilt that looks like diagonal slots. Your trip looks like a lot of fun, Zenia. I’m proud to say I was there when you started that Arkansas Traveler stitching!
