Last minute...

We are off camping tomorrow and I suddenly decided that I didn't have quite the right bag to put all the bottles of shampoo, shower gel and sun cream in (as you do !!). So I found some French looking material in my stash, not sure what it is, but I think that it was donated to me by my friend over at Sewshoddy. So while I should have been packing and organising....

I then realised that despite making peg bags for lots of other people, I needed one to take with us as we have family, house sitting for us who will need the pretty pegs. So out came the material again, and I used a hook recycled from an old broken sponge bag, and voila - a camping peg bag!

It hangs ok from a rope so it should do the trick.

And finally.. I have a confession. I was given this shirt to recycle, which usually means that I chop it up to make something else. However, it didn't get that far as I have been wearing it all day. Does anyone else do that or is it just me?

Ha, caught in the act! Glad you are getting some use out of it one way or another. La mercerie is haberdashery in French I think, hope you have a lovely time and bring back lots of treasures.
