I hate packing for long trips with multiple parts which will require multiple types of clothing, especially when I won’t be able to do washing as I go and I have a 23kg limit on the way out… Anyway, I think I have my garments cut down to the bare minimum now with the following:
a clean top for each day (mixture of t-shirts and vest tops)
clean undies and socks
1 pair jeans (which I’ll be wearing when I travel)
1 light skirt
1 pair of zip off walking trousers
2 pairs of shorts
2 pairs of fleece jammies for the road trip
shortie jammies for the hotel
2 pairs fleece slipper socks
2 peasant dresses
1 peasant tunic
1 cotton jumper
1 cuddle fleece (for cold nights on the trip)
1 pair converse
1 pair ballet flats
In addition to this, I have:
camera lens cleaning kit
pouch full of embroidery stuff
fabric cut for Shapes & Angles class
3 1/2″ ruler
6 1/2″ ruler
small cutting mat
long lens for Laura
beanbag (for the camera, filled with poly-pellets, it’s all of about 2 oz in weight)
presents for my fellow ASS gurus
presents for my chauffeur
presents for my roomies
camera battery charger
toiletries (tiny bottles of these, as I’m intending to buy normal sized ones in Walmart)
notebook for journaling as I go
partridge in a pear tree
It feels slightly like the Generation Game – name everything that you can see ;o)
On the way back, I’m paying for excess luggage ;o)
Um, didn't you forget "someone"? You know, little body covered with fur. Well?
Have a wonderful & safe trip.
Cuddly toy! Have fun and can't wait to see what goodies you come back with … *jealous*
What not Cuddly Toy?! You of all people as well! I love reading other people's packing lists!
Far too much. Have a great time and keep safe. xx
How come all that is looking like less than I had for a few days in Glasgow?! DONT FORGET JACK.
Looks like you've thought of everything except for Jack. Have fun trying to get it all in one bag.
You might have to give lessons on packing, this is a good list. I agree, don't forget Jack!
Wow, that's some impressive packing! Can't wait to meet you at Sewing Summit in just a few days!!
There's always a cuddly toy but that's not Jack 'cos I know he's a real bear…maybe he needs a cuddly for bedtime?!
What the H is a cuddle fleece!?
The queen of mean packing! Dont forget jack and a cuddly toy!
I spy your undies 😉
I see the pear tree!
Stop. Stop…… Where is you know who. You have left the main person out. I'm just reminding you.
Nightmare packing!! Try doing it when a couple of dogs want to come too LOL!! Anyway, enjoy yourself and have fun:o))
Take care and have a good weekend.
want me to bring any quilty supplies for you so that you don't have to worry about them?? also, i hope my roommates don't bring presents. hmmm…. oh, no. what if they do?
Happy travels to you!! 🙂 Here's a tip.. bring all of your old and holey socks and undies, and then after you wear them, chuck them. Less laundry when you get home, and more space for fabrics on the way back. 😉
I think you have a lot of pyjamas! And excuse my ignorance, but what is pogo paper and why does it need a lead?
Have a good trip. Looking forward to reading about it
Hope you have a great trip, Katy! Looking forward to meeting you! Hugs, Janice
I'm excited for you!!
when do you go !!!it looks a lot when in a list but well ……………..packed it is not so bad :)))))
safe travels, see you soon
Can I be the mom of the group and ask that you let me know when you are leaving so I can worry the whole time that you will make it safely??? Also, Jack is a must. You can't leave him. Poor bear. He might think you don't love him anymore and hang himself off your dresser!!
Is there anything you need from WalMart that I can pick up for you to bring to SS? I know getting a chance to run out there will be difficult while at SS and I don't really want to see your hairy legs poking out of your peasant dress because your razor didn't make the packing cut. 🙂
first off, hahahahaha to danny's comment
secondly, i'm major impressed with your packing, i'm assuming you'll be purchasing another bag for the return trip though? when do you fly out? safe travels!!
Im pretty amazed you managed to squeeze that all in there. Whatever you don't have you can always buy over there.
Have fun and a safe trip. Im assuming departure cant be far off if you're at the packing stage.
Oh gosh, it is getting close! How long are you gone for? Have a great time!
Oooh, my back hurts just thinking about carrying that bag! Do you really need to bring clean undies and socks? 🙂
