I hope you are all keeping well.  I have the flu but I am doing my best to keep as many people well as I can by staying home these last few days. It's been hard especially when the postie delivered some new craft books for me to read.  

Speaking of the postie.  He is the first person I have come across in a long time who has such as strong sense of self survival.  When I told him to stay clear, as I was not only sick but felt like patient zero, he wouldn't hand me my package but placed it on the ground in front of him and quickly turned tail and ran for his delivery van.  I must look like crap.

Also a telemarketing caller rang with some scheme to sell and after I politely croaked "no" she quickly hung up.  No keeping on with the sales pitch and falling into full hostile abuse when I keep politely saying "no thanks".  I must sound a fright too.

I made this bag a while ago but only just finished it recently. 

It's a little orphan purple bag.  It has no where to go yet.  I don't why I made it really.  I think its just because I love cutting up fabric!

CraftyStacie has kindly made a tutorial for this bag on her blog and you can jump into this portal to get there and make your own.

I have had a visitor the last few mornings.  A beautiful red robin.  Every time I race back inside to get my camera she flies away. 

I managed to stalk her a bit and by using my telescopic lens got this burred pic.  Still, it's better than nothing.

The poor robin had no idea it had a stalker! Hope you're better.

p.s. do you know your blog has word verification?

What a fantastic shot of the robin. That made me laugh about the postie. I love the fabric you have used in your bag and such a great shape. I hope you are on the mend now...

I hope you get better soon. We have had a bad run run with sickness this year. We had nothing last year. I love the photo of the robin.
