When we packed our bags to go on holiday, I also prepared a fabric tote and a plastic bag with items for all the crafting I was going to do in the cottage we rented at the North Sea.
I brought linen, embroidery floss, cotton yarn, the 2 new embroidery kits I recently bought, more yarn, hooks to match the yarn, a pair of scissors, large pieces of extra thick carton and 2 different knitting books.
As usual my husband laughed at me when he picked up my stuff, and put it in our car.
But I knew that I would get to make loads of things from all my supplies, so I didn't mind him laughing...
The things you see in the photo, are what I got around to making in the 7 days we were there! 3 lousy attempts at crocheting cirlces and a tiny pile of carton hexagons for a patchwork blanket.
Never before have I made so little handwork during a holiday...I wonder what happened?
Well, I know the answer to that question myself. I simply enjoyed being with my family (I always do that!) playing, talking, bathing and all the other lovely things you make with your loved ones, when everyday life has been put on standby for a while.
And I loved it - SO much.
