Packing for a week's camping started with a pleasurable hour packing for a week's sewing. Quite a discipline trying to pack enough so I wouldn't be too restricted in my choices of fabric or yarn, but not have so much I couldn't pack it safely away from rain if necessary.
As you can see I couldn't resist packing some of the more exotic fabrics on the list anyway. Perhaps I will get that far in the instructions. Although I know perfectly well it's very unlikely what with the surfing and the castles!
I went last minute shopping with my daughter and drew this part of her muslin dress in a cafe at the shopping centre. I'm not sure if it will be useful to have this in my sketchbook but I do like folded fabric like this.
It doesn't look pretty or clever, but it's what I'm interested in, and might work more on, and I guess that's the point of the sketchbook, isn't it. There's some doubt in my mind a lot of the time about whether I'm doing this right - the sketchbook, this blog, the whole business - how long each part should take etc. Although not so much that I think I need to bother anyone with stupid questions, or anything. Just the usual doubts you get when you're doing something for the first time and you don't know what you're doing!
