I really wish some of my crafts I do were portable. In July I'm going back home by myself and the flight is 4 hours long. Even though it's still a little over a month away I'm already starting to rack my brain about how I could craft on a plane. (haha, that rhymed Smiley)


If you have NOT checked in yet on either this thread or the gallery thread...Please do ASAP!!!

Hmm. Crafts for the plane...I usually crochet, but your profile says that is a no no for you.

I know that you can bring sewing needles on a plain (I do it all the time) and I bring nail clippers instead of scissors. You could try your hand at a button tree hoopla thingy Huh

Man, if I didn't have crochet I think I would go a little bonkers on the plane. Last time I flew I had just signed up for an inchie swap so I spent my flight time sketching ideas and making lists, but I still crocheted a bit too. And slept. A lot.

I hope you find something!

 I always catch up on my reading. I hope you find something to do on the plane, and have a safe trip.

I love the swap gallery!  I've been working away slowly, but I have to admit I get a little anxious whenever people see my works in-progress.  I don't know why, but it always makes me feel self-conscious when someone sees something that I haven't finished (maybe because I don't know for sure how it will turn out?  I don't know, but I don't think logic has anything to do with it).  So, of course, my parents have been very interested in my crafting lately.  Does anyone else ever feel such craft anxiety?

Arryl, This is my first swap - so mega anxiety here. But I find that whenever I make ANYTHING that I'm not keeping/using myself it comes with a side of anxiety. I just finished a major project for my baby sister's birthday - a huge freezer paper stencil thingy on a dress... and I stressed and stressed and STRESSED about it. I came back to it over and over and then when it was finished I must have shown like 8 different people and asked them whether they thought she'd like it, would she wear it, would it suit her, etc etc. And that was for my sister. Now I'm crafting for my partner who I don't even know! Crystalized_art and I have had some good discussions and I feel like I'm on the right track for her, but I'm TOTALLY anxious about how she's going to like the crafts I'm making for her. Yikes! So yeah, I'm sure any craftsperson feels a little bit of that anxiety when they're crafting for someone else.

Anxiety Big Time! Just threw my big in the bin. Starting again. Small isn't great either. Lost the instructions for another project. I had such hopes for today. "Just keep swimming".

I'm always hesitant to show my crafts at any stage, but especially while in the process. Everyone always seems so neagative and questioning of how it will turn out or if I can do it. And then they seem surprised when it turns out like I said. Grrr. Maybe I need more supportive friends!

Right now I'm working on Lacey's large, and I tried to explain my idea to my mother who was very "That's going to be hard to do...". *sigh* I'm sure it will turn out in the end.

I tend to get really anxious once I send it out and I can't change it or add anything to it.

You just need to have faith and relax. I find that the more stressed and worried I am, the harder it is to make what I am seeing. If I just go with the flow, the project may not turn out exactly how I planned, but sometimes I luck out and it turns out better Smiley

I totally agree. The more I stress, the more I over think it and that's when the problems start.
