    Making lists works well for me in planning and packing, too. Enjoy!

      Thanks, Yvonne. A few things to add but maybe a good one to refer to for the next sewing trip.

      I am trying to get a real system going with my lists. Will spend a little time on this when tired of sewing (that never happens!).

I love hearing from you and try to reply promptly to each comment.
