    Travel: Europe in a Carry On

    Europe in a carry-on. That’s right, it’s time to travel. Off the continent again. I remember the first time Bryce and I left the continent (well, we’d been to Maui, yet that was well before the blog). We were headed to Hong Kong and then onto South East Asia with our 33L backpacks. This time, I’m packing in a carry on that’s 40L – my Briggs and Riley carry-on traveller suitcase.

Tip One Getting a reasonable deal on flights is key – yet it’s not the only factor. Flights to New York City might…

    Sewing: Fall Fat Quarter Scarf

    Fall fat quarter scarf. This is the second scarf I’ve made this way and I’m loving these deep navy and pink colours. Just perfect for fall. So, what is a fat quarter? It’s a quilting term used for breaking up a yard of fabric into quarters – and fat ones, I assume. They’re not square, since a most fabric isn’t a yard wide.What I like most about them is it’s quick and easy to determine how much fabric you need. On this scarf I picked…
