I've been having mini panic attacks for the last month in anticipation of September. August and September are kind-a busy for me this year but I've been over anxious and keep trying to skip weekends in my head. There's another 2 weekends before Palmetto Tat Days and over a month to the Fringe Tat Days. Yet I've been trying to prematurely pack for both events. That doesn't work very well when you need the stuff you're packing away. So instead I've elected to make lists. Part of the issue is that I'm flying and I only want to bring a carry-on. So extra junk needs to stay at home.
The other list I'm making is for purchases. I find myself overwhelmed by the sheer volume of tatting supplies at one of these events. There's every kind of shuttle, needle and thread. I often get home and realise I forgot to get something.
