Well, my suitcase and carry-on purse are packed and ready to go. I think I have everything that I will need for the trip. I probably have more than I need, I always seem to pack too much. The suitcase is the size of a carry-on but I will check it so that I don't have to be responsible for it during the trip. I don't want to take anything larger then that as I have to haul it around Ireland with me.
I made a new small purse, the green one above, and am still deciding if I will take it or not. I like the brown one that I made earlier because it has 2 zippers, one under the flap and one on the back. The little green one has a back pocket but I wish I had made a solid back and put a zipper on the back. Next time!! Hindsight is 20/20. I guess that is what happens when you use a pattern but change it half way through and then incorporate your own design then you end up thinking that you should have done things just a little differently. I should probably write down what I do and then come up with a pattern and hopefully be happy with it.
