What I did on my summer vacation

Over the last year I have been adding to my collection of DMC floss whenever it was on sale. I now should have ever color. While we were driving to the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania a few weeks ago I wound all the floss onto bobbins. I can't read or stitch while riding or I get car sick but I was able to do this!

A few months ago I discovered I can also stuff doll parts while riding in the car. Since DH and I commute an hour each way to work every day and he usually does the driving I am always anxious to find things I can tolerate doing in the car without my stomach doing flip flops. Does anyone else have this problem? What have you found you can do in the car?

Have a pieceful day!

Gosh -- an hour! All that floss looks great! I can knit in the car, but only if it's something fairly simple -- having a complicated pattern requires reading which gets back to the flip flops of regular reading. Stuffing doll parts sounds like a good plan to me.

I find that if I am doing something that I can concentrate on and not go back and forth between it and the road then my stomach is okay. It's when I look up then back to my work I have an issue.

I get motion sickness, not just in the car. About all I can do is look around or sleep. I travel better if I am driving. I can't even enjoy watching or playing the driving games on the playstation, all the swerving around makes me feel ill. What a waste of all that time on the road!
