Places I Sit & Sew

I've been thinking a bit more about my last post, and why I took so many photos of chairs.

I think it's because when I travel, I am looking for new places to sit and have a set of criteria by which to judge their desirability as stitching locations. This provides great comfort to me, because I always carry around a "to go" bag of stitching, equipped with needles, thread, scissors and projects.

When I think about the desirability of the places to sit, the most important quality is light. Not necessarily good light to sew by, but light that makes a place look golden... light that inspires me to take a photograph. These are the places where even when traveling, I feel at home.

So with all this talk of chairs, I thought I'd share with you a few places that I like to sit and stitch when I am at home.

Of course I am also known to work in the kitchen or at a café...or on a sunny rock when on a hike. It's nice that my work allows for such flexibility.
