Almost ready (NOT REALLY) .................

I have finished my travel document holder... a pattern by Anni Downs in her book Some Kind of Wonderful...


.... and I have filled it with the things I need to take....


instead of magnetic holders I used snap fasteners.... 


I made some extra ones for the pressie bag.....


..... still trying to get some giftie sewing done........ whilst being carefully watched of course!


.... I have packed one bag so far.....


 ...... but I haven't started on any clothes yet! .....

my eldest daughter turns 30 the day we arrived....so a very special gift has been made.....

 .... here's a clue ....... 


Righto, Gotto Go...... 3 sleeps to go..... or rather 3 nights of not much sleeping to go....

  8. Pretty document holders.
    Perhaps you could find some fabric to fill the bag, shame to bring it home empty.
    Safe travels.

  19. These are beautiful! I have to get my hands on that book, I need one of these for my business trips. I thought the book was a quilt pattern though?

    Nope, I don't know what the pressie is and I don't think I know where you're going? Have I not been paying attention?
