We are throwing the last things into our suitcases so we can start our trip to Italy and the Mediterranean. We'll have three days in Florence, three days in Rome and then off to the Greek islands for a week.
So I did finish a red polar fleece backing for the Lego quilt, and both will be deliver to my long-arm quilter tonight by a friend. So that quilt is out of the sewing room.
I'm taking some socks to finish knitting as we drive to and from Chicago's O'Hare Airport, and then I'm leaving that stuff in the car. No handwork for two weeks, just looking and looking at the scenery and antiquities.
For those who wondered: SaraRachel, DGD aged 13, developed an abysmally low platelet count, no blood clotting whatsoever. She is in St. Louis Children's Hospital for two days at least for improvement. She is not in pain and is enjoying their fulsome attention. Mom is frazzled.
Have good enough health for this trip
Have enough wealth for this trip
Have Road Scholar [Elderhostel] to do all the arrangements and teaching
