I wanted something to work one during an upcoming road trip and didn't want to take anything that was large or bulky. Then I remembered this applique project that I started on a trip a couple of years ago, and then set aside - and forgot about it. Why do I do that?
Anyway, since this is only about 24" square and needs only 1 color thread, it is the perfect item to tuck into my bag. And hopefully I'll actually make some progress on it this time.
