No camera!

Hanging on tight to my brother way back in the mid sixties.
I am crafting - honest I am.
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!
And totally enjoying lashings of homemade mustard flavoured mayonnaise on fresh bread. Too good!!!


  1. ooh, cant wait till you get your camera fixed! Sounds like you have been pretty busy, you go girl!

  2. What a gorgeous photo!

  3. The giraffe pattern is available from the Red Rooster website. Sorry I couldn't reply privately, but you have your email set at no-reply.

  4. Thank you! I'm glad you like the bag, and felt inspired to make one, can't wait to see your pictures.

  5. What a great picture you used to illustrate this post! I also love to share my crafts on my blog, but I haven't been able to access my photos easily for some time as well. Soon! :)

  6. Thanks for your comment.
    I love your blog header.
    Great photo!

  7. You are right -- sweet comments just seem to bolster us! And your homemade bread/mustard/mayo snack sounds simply delicious!

  8. this is such a cute photo... and talk of homemade mustard has me feeling all hungry again! Happy crafting with the returned mojo x

  9. I wish you hadn't mentioned lashings of homemade mustard-flavoured mayonnaise. I've barely eaten breakfast and already thinking about lunch.


Thankyou for your kind thoughts. I appreciate and read everyone even though at times I may not be well enough to reply. Thankyou.
