Hanging on tight to my brother way back in the mid sixties.
But the camera won't work. It keeps saying "file no. full" whatever that means. So until I've worked that out (already deleted and reformated and tried every combination of settings on it) there will be no pictures.
I think when my energy and will is low I continue to craft so that I can blog about it. My crafting is my medicine but blogging and everyone's sweet comments makes it that much easier to do. Therefore, the work had nearly died out from when I realised I couldn't take photos until today when I saw
Ethel Loves Fred's fabulous upcycled bag.
I have been trying to make something for nearly everyone in the family of the Mum who received last post's gorgeous folder (thanks for all your love of it! and encouragement about working despite imperfections). I only had one person left to make something for and was stuck for ideas until I saw that bag. Just the thing to get me sewing again. Madly clearing the other bits for that family so I can make one like this too. I just hope I am brave enough to use some of those old doilies again. Talk about materialism!
