The easiest thing to bring is hand work, because, usually I don't have a sewing machine at vacation destinations. (Although I have been known to pack one) Handwork is never a problem, as I love to do it.
Below is an example of a piece I just took along on a recent trip. It was a quilt sandwich that I created to practice thread tension and various stitches on the machine. I liked the looks of it, and decided to do a little beading and will perhaps add some hand stitching as well. At any rate, this is what it looks like so far.

I also try to never be without my camera or my sketchbook/journal. This is true on a daily basis as well as while traveling.
What about you? Do you have certain things that you feel at loose ends without on a daily basis? If so, what are they?
