This is my box. I never travel without my box...( Amahl). Anyway, silliness aside, vacation is coming up and I'll carry this with me in case the mood strikes and I see something I want to record. In this box is everything I need to create a little piece, by hand, on the spot. I am imagining myself sitting in a field or on the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean all the way to Ireland. It all fits into a flat wooden cigar box that fits on my lap. In it are needles, thread, floss, scissors, beads, buttons, fabric scraps. Draped over the top are the precut base fabric and batting.

I'll also have my journals, pens, paper,and paints in another bag. Hopefully, there'll be room for the necessities, like clothes. And wine.
