As time goes by............

When you no longer have a regular commitment to work or family weekends no longer have the same significance, in fact some days if it wasn't for the fact that my medication says today is Thursday I would be hard put to say what day of the week it is!  And has for the date - well that's something to be checked up on my smart phone...

And that's it, technology love it or hate it, in today's modern world you cannot get by without recourse to it.  It struck me yesterday as I was ordering my new car the salesman asked if I had access to a scanner so that I could email him a copy of the one document I had forgotten to take with me.  If I had been younger would he have even asked!  In today's world access to the Internet at all times is not a luxury but an essential and even when away from home you still expect to send and receive emails all the time.

I can remember my Grandfather had a little routine that he went through every time he left the house, he checked to see that he had his keys, his pipe and matches and his camera if not going to work, gave Gran a peck on the cheek and left the house, stopping on the front step to put on his hat.  Today I never leave home without my phone, iPad, car keys (although these just have to be in my bag) and my knitting or drop spindle!

Since Fibre East I have been indulging my passion for sewing! Intrigued by a friends large project bag I set out to recreate one for myself and in true sassy fashion I didn't just make one I made lots.............














There are a couple more, but I gave them away before I took a pic!  Each of the large bags has a smaller one inside which is attached to the large bag so you can't lose it and for some I have made a medium sized bag to match!  And they all have beaded pulls for the zips - just because I like making them.....







Now Mr S wants to know what are they all for............ 

What a silly question, bags are for stuff and I have rather a lot of stuff, so need bags for my stuff!  The more stuff you have the more bags you need, so you have buy more stash to enable you to make the bags for the stuff you already have and the stuff you bought to make the bags for the stuff!
