LOL...well a bag lady yes.... but not one that pushes around all of her worldly possessions in a shopping cart. Oh me oh my...goodness no!...with all of my "cra..."...oops I mean craft and collectables..lol....I would need an awful big trolley...about the size of your average road train I would think...lol (bit hard to maneuver around those tight corners...tee hee!)

What I mean is.... that since my last post about the bags I wanted to make for my mum (youno... from that ridiculously priced fabric that I just had to have!!) I got to thinkin'....and what I "thunk" was that I really should have a go at one before I cut into that $43 a metre fabric that is literally worth its weight in gold.

So I set about buying some more suitable fabric...(and handles and trim...and more fuseable lining, and..and..and....oh my god!!!...HELP ME PLEASE!!!...seriously...I have a problem!!!!)...and set about making a bag to test my capabilities.

Well....it turned out fabulously and I wa…

Yep....well it's nearly here again...that fast approaching but wonderfully enjoyable "Silly Season".
NOVEMBER!!!!......My christmas shopping would normally be done and wrapped by now....but oooohh nooooo....not this year!. This year I am yet to even start!
Well, actually I have started...if you call buying fabric "started" !! Yesterday I headed off to a fabric sale at our local Spotlight store ...only to find that I had misread the information and it was only the "cruddy" fabric that was on sale...lol (simply  got blinded by the word SALE I guess...tee hee)
Anyways...never one to miss an opprotunity to spend money I dont really have...I headed off to my favourite quilting and scrapbooking store where I had previously seen something that had taken my eye...........uh-oh...it was about to get very expensive!!

Writer's block????....hah!!! ...I know!!!...you have to BE a writer to have writer's block...but hey...I'm struggling here so that counts doesn't it?......lol

I'm not sure that it is necessarily that I have nothing to write about...in fact my head is full of trivial information, silly stories to tell and many a useless fact. .....the fact of the matter is I am just plain tired...knackered, worn out.......tuckered ! ......Waaay too tired to get the brain to work...so,  I am afraid that it will be just useless dribble that you will be receiving for my post.this week .lol.

I lay the blame soley on myself....firstly we were away for most part of the weekend (GREAT I hear you say!!....well....NOT!!!!....but our trip away is a story for another day)...let me just say it would have been much more restful having all my teeth pulled..…
