And the Wheels on the Bus Go Round & Round ---

The Wheels on the Bus go Round & Round, Round & Round, Round & Round……((And round and round and round and round!))

How do stitchers keep themselves busy?


The following photos are just of our busy hands….Isn’t this photo cute? they pinned their busy bags to the back of the seats In front of them for easy access – love it!

Busy hands are happy hands, and boy-o have we been happy :cD

  1. I love all the handwork! Looks like you are all having so much fun!

  2. I loved seeing all the different projects! I always take my hexi project with me for a flight, for a long drive it's a toss up between that and the knitting.

  3. Looks like fun, but I can't read or stitch while riding...motion sickness! Enjoying seeing Ireland through your pics!

  4. Love it - my kind of traveling companions!!! Have fun on your next stop, and thank you for all the wonderful pictures and updates!!!

  5. nice work- I'd be so busy watching the scenery too that I doubt I would get a lot done!

  9. Bonnie, I enjoy your site more than any other. Each morning before I make coffee I turn my computer on and its ready when I sit down with my coffee. You are always making memories and enjoying life to the fullest. Loved seeing all the hand work everyone was doing. Hope all you ladies took a break long enough to enjoy the lovely country site. Happy sewing!!!!!

  10. And what wonder memories of great trip every time you pick up those projects in the future!

  11. Hello Bonnie,

    What a busy bunch of ladies, such lovely projects! I'm with Myrna, I'd get ever so slightly ick. Looking out of the window and nattering is the name of the game for me.

    Never been to Northern Ireland - you've beaten me to it! Have a fab time, enjoy our pretty bank notes, and see how many different pound coins you can find - there are lots of different designs.


  12. I love the peeks into everyone's activity bags for inspiration on building the perfect activity bag. Or actually bags because one is never enough. I'm glad you're having fun. Lane

  13. I love the pink and white block the lady is hand piecing. What is the name of that block and is there a pattern available? That might encourage me to take up hand piecing. vickisamsel@gmail.com

  14. Some many beautiful hand piecing projects!! Thanks for the peeks!

  15. Sew much fun! Love all the hexies! Love all the different organizing systems being used for projects on the go.

  16. Great way to occupy your time while travelling.
    Have fun in Belfast. I actually have relatives there, from what I understand. My grandfather was from Belfast.

  17. I'm so jealous! Wish I could have gone with you and wish I could still do hand work. I did enjoy it, but with my upcoming third hand surgery I can no longer do it. Enjoy and keep the picture coming please.

  18. Do they fight over the seat next to you, draw straws or what? LOL! Looks like everyone is keeping busy!

  19. Oh how I wish I could do this but I get motion sickness so have to watch the horizon. Oh so Lucky Ladies

  20. where did those cure busy bags come from? i want one! can someone tell me if there is a pattern or where to purchase one please?
