Today I was off work with one of the boys so spent a little bit of time planning the clothes I would pack for our trip to France next week .I've always loved Carolyn's posts about what she takes on holidays so thought I'd have a go. This isn't the final list - it's still a work in progress.
I haven't photographed any of the ski specific clothes and I've left out underwear. Have I got all the bases covered? I'm assuming I'll cover off on the cold by wearing my big coat but may need to put in another smaller jacket for less cold days. I still love stripes with tartan hence I'm taking my tartan scarf.
One good thing was that doing this planning exercise forced me into fixing the dodgy shirring I had done on this top.
I'm a bit disappointed with the amount of handmade in this collection. Most of the tops are handmade and one jumper but nothing else. I suppose almost all of the outfits here will include at least one handmade item so I shouldn't be too hard on myself.
The other thing I've been thinking about is what on earth am I going to do without my sewing machine for 5 weeks? I suspect I will be putting a lot of ideas up on my sewing plans page!
cute little baby leg warmers from purlbee. The thing is that I have to use double pointed needles to do it. EEEEEEEEEK, They look so menacing. Anyway, I'm going to try and make these leg warmers and also make a little kerchief using the Liberty of London Tom's Jets fabric in the background which I've had for ages but have never done anything with it. Probably when I get back. First I will need to master those double points. Oh, and I'm assuming that I will be able to take them on an airplane???
