Costume Chaos Causes Caravan Delay

Breaking News is just in that Fiona has been so busy sewing medieval trousers and tunics for her son's film that she has not had time to work on the Doiley Birds' caravan.

The filming starts on Saturday so after this weekend she should be able to get on and show developments of the caravan. Her intention is to cover it in paper mache to make it stronger and warmer then paint it in gypsy caravan colours.

She has suggested to the girls that while they are waiting they should make lists of the essential gear they should take.

Her own list goes like this:
warm clothes (and she has started a knitted coat -picture will come next week)
sleeping bags
hats and scarves
pots and pans
crockery and cutlery
food (of course with plenty of chocolate)
first aid kit (with stuff for tummy aches)

Does anyone else have any suggestions? We don't want these intrepid explorers setting off without something vital they'll want on their journey.

PS: Fiona found the basketry wheels and will post photos next week when her life begins again.
We can't wait.
