Packing for Shuttlebirds has been interesting -- sort of, "Hmmmm...if I wear the same sox two days in a row I can fit in this extra ball of thread. WHAT? No, no cleanliness is important, buy some thread when you get there!" Since I decided to fly instead of take that 11 hour drive I've also been worried about what the TSA is going to take away from me. Can I take a size 16 crochet hook? Do I dare take the new Quad hook pen I got from LadyShuttleMaker? Are they going to say I can't carry on all this stuff? I'm trying to pare it down to minimums, but my minimums are rather maximum. If I can decide on one good-sized project and just take materials for that everything will probably fit. I worry about deciding part way there that some other project would really have been a better idea. *sigh*
Aside from that, here's another of those "Sternenhimmel" motifs from Susanne Schwenke's book SpitzenKreationen. I really like the way this one creates that little central star as well. I remembered to make all the joins on this one -- there's one sitting on the arm of my chair sadly misshapen from a missed join. I'll be making more of this design in a nice plain thread so the pattern stands out. Hmmmm...maybe SpitzenKreationen should go to Spokane with me!
