I'm sorry to say this week it hasn't been possible to create any new bags. First my husband dislocated his jaw. We don't know how he did it but he was in agony all weekend and we spent a lot of time trying to find foods he could eat. We were thrilled when, after a few days, it finally seemed to 'click' back into place and we were able to enjoy the Tastes of Herefordshire food festival with all its delicious dishes and ciders. Unfortunately it seems that one of these delicious dishes wasn't what he needed, on Monday he came down with food poisoning. After twenty-four hours it seemed he was on the mend, but about this time I was starting to feel run-down and have since developed a terrible cold. I think it's inevitable that my husband is going to catch this cold too, which is awful because this week was half term, a holiday we'd been looking forward to for a long time!
All in all the situation hasn't been conducive to crafting, but I'm hoping next week I'll be able to get back into the swing. I've also had a chance to start planning some Christmas present ideas which I'll definitely need to get working on this month. For now we're off to a firework display for Bonfire Night at Blists Hill museum (which you may remember from my post Vintage Crafting). It's a great place to get some handmade inspiration and a great place to enjoy a starry autumn night.
Wish us luck! LL xxx
