I'm writing this blog to really avoid the horrendous job of packing up our suitcases. After organising the kiddies toys, clothes and other necessities, packing our favourite NZ foods that we can't do without (Onion dip, Whittakers Peanut Butter Chocolate and Perky Nanas always make there way into our bags), there really isn't much room left for me to take any sewing supplies. It is near on impossible for me to ever find what I need in Tanzania so for the next few months I will be finding projects that will use up what stash I have over there. Never fear though, I have a trip planned to South Africa in October without the kiddies, so will be filling up my suitcase there with all sorts of sewing and crafting goodies.
This morning I packed up my small sewing space I had found for myself at my Mums. Again it was another job I had been avoiding but it had to be done. Thankfully both kiddies managed to find ways to keep themselves entertained whilst I was doing this.
