Tip for travelling with embroidery projects



Let me tell you - I love flying but.. first time on a small (and I'm sure VERY old) propella machine - I did not like it. Start and landing is a VERY lively affair!!!
Photo by me - reasonably calm.

Jeg tog et lille broderi projekt med mig da jeg besøgte min familie og min bror på hospice.


Det blev for tungt at ta' broderibogen med, da jeg kun havde håndbaggage med i flyet, så jeg tog en masse fotos af de forskellige blomstermønstre i bogen, så jeg senere kunne se på kameraets display hvordan farverne skulle være, hvordan trådene skulle placeres osv.

God idé til alle os, der ikke kan ta' på ferie uden håndarbejde - kameraet skal jo alligevel med:-)
Med et digital kamera er det jo muligt at ta' en masse fotos og se dem når man vil og så bare delete dem bagefter.

Det var en stor hjælp - og nemt og smart!


photographing the flowerpattern from book







I brought a small embroidery project with me when travelling to visit my family and my brother at the hospice.

Bringing the embroidery book was too heavy as I only brought handluggage on the plane, so I took photos from the book with my digital camera of the different flowers, so I was able later on the display of the camera to see the colors, how the shading was done, in which direction the threads should go etc.
I'm sure this would also work for knitting, crochet and other projects where you are in a hurry and don't have time to make photocopies of the patterns or can bring heavy books.

Great idea for all of us, who cannot go on a holiday without a project - we bring the camera anyway:-) 

It was a great help and on a digital camera you can take a lot of photos and then just delete them later. Easy and smart!
