The People's Choice SAL: Freedom

This month on Jo's multi-topic SAL, the subject chosen by the people is 'Freedom'. I expect to see lots of red, white, and blue from our US friends, but for us Europeans, we have to think a little more outside of the box!

For me, freedom, especially this year, also means the freedom do travel whereever I want to. The German passport is one of the most 'powerful' in the world, meaning there are tons of countried we can travel to without having to request a visum, and I've done a fair share of traveling in the last couple years. However, with the added repsonsibility of talking care of my grandma (who relies on me and my husband more and more), it's been harder to get away, and now with the pandemic, of course it's become an impossibility alltogether. I still like to remember, so today I'll be showing you just a couple of the projects that accompanied me on my trips!

I remember working on this Bunny Biscornu by Joan Elliott while sitting across from my best friend in Leipzig, Germany a couple of years ago, when we visited the bookfair together!

Satsuma Street's Halloween Cat accompanied me on a business trip to Torino, Italy, and I remember stitching on it in the evenings in my hotel room, as well as on the train ride there and back. A wonderful trainride straight through the beautiful Swiss alps, I might add!

This one I brought with me on a business trip to Melbourne, Australia. I was there for a conference and worked on it on the plane and also during several presentations I attended!

Although I have many, many more 'travel projects', I'm going to end with 99 - not only is it a very international project all by itself, depicting bottles from all over the world, but also my most well-traveled one! I started this on a trip to Ireland in 2017, took it with me to Australia later that year, and to Californa in 2018. Such wonderful memories!

Thanks for taking part in The People's Choice this month. I love your interpretation of Freedom and the range of projects.
99 is the perfect one to finish with.
