When travelling during the summer, wouldn't it be nice to have just a little weekend bag, a toothbrush and a change of undies, a book to read and a WIP embroidery?
Alas, I can't travel like that, firstly I'm away for much longer than a weekend, and secondly, there is the thing called retail therapy, stash building, new item testing, also known by another name, namely SHOPPING.
Then there is the GIFT EXCHANGE.
Returning from Europe this summer I had all this in my bagage:
thread, thread, thread, needles, needles, needles and the mystery package that can't be opened until Christmas.
And then there were my two quilts brought back from the Festival Of Quilts in Birmingham.
So now you know why I can't manage with just a small weekend bag.
