at least with the cross stitching. I did quite a lot on the airplane, which was fabulous. It really made the time speed by. But I didn't work on it yesterday, so off it goes to Los Angeles with me. Maybe I can finish it in the hotel tonight.
Ruth asked me if I wasn't worried about getting the white threads and fabrics dirty on the airplane. Well, no. First I do wash my hands before I take out any of my needlework, no matter what color. I also never lay any of my needlework or threads directly on the laptop tray. I always put them on the plastic bag that holds the kit. The stitching is also in a Q-snap frame, so even the back never touches a surface. The threads are in the plastic bag unless I am actually cutting them or putting them in a needle. I am much more paranoid about dropping or losing my needle threader or scissors. They are also in the plastic bag unless I am actually using them.
It doesn't really show in this picture but the top threads in the frame between windows two and three are slightly discolored. I did not stitch them on a plane, but they are probably the end threads. I should have just stopped, but it is hard to cut the ends long when just a little effort will finish out a section. I am not a thread miser per se, but I do want to finish those last little stitches in a color rather than start a whole new length.
