Well, wait no more! If you don't already have a portable project to work on in those times, let me suggest that you start a hexagon quilt! "What??", you ask? "Isn't that hand piecing??"
Why yes, it is. And it's EASY!
This is one that I've finished called Let There Be Light.
I carried its parts around in a repurposed box in which I hot glued a magnet to the inside of the lid to hold needles. It went to the allergy doctor, to Little League, to school...it pretty much was my grab and go project for a while. It's amazing what you can accomplish in your "spare" time!
I've designed a new one that I've started stitching on...this one is about 5x bigger than the one above. It has, oh, 3,000+ some pieces in it. Daunting, yes, but it is going to be gorgeous! Here's a sneak peek:
Give hexis a try! You'll never be stuck empty handed again. If you'd like to make Let There Be Light you can find the pattern on my ETSY site. The instructions are photo illustrated, step by step, and the pattern diagrams are in full color.
