I thought I had set up scheduled posts to run while I was traveling, but clearly I'm not as post savvy as I thought. Brother.
I have to share how crafting saved the day during my trip. I've carried the same bag for years and have never had to check it. But this time I was told I must, and when I picked it up at baggage claim the handle was broken. So sad. I used the wait time at Gatwick to wax and braid embroidery floss to craft a cord to replace the missing metal ring.
That emergency fix held my bag, packed to 13 kilos, together for 11 days. Three cheers for embroidery floss. I'll post the project that the brown floss was used for later. Now, back to the corselet. Really!
