I haven't knitted anything! But I did buy some fabric - I want to make a simple bag with it - does anyone have any ideas of a good pattern? It's made of heavy weight shiny fabric - waterproof, like an oilskin tablecloth. But I just love the design! I have a half metre piece that is 140cm wide so if anyone knows of a fairly simple bag pattern I could make I'd be grateful - please note - I have limited sewing experience and even have difficulty threading up the sewing machine!
In more exciting news - I bought a new digital camera yesterday, it's a Canon Powershot A710 IS - 6 x optical zoom, 7 megapixels, image stabilisation! My old camera (my trusty Pentax Optio 30) has been slowly succumbing over the last few months. I think the Ribena incident may have played a large part in its demise. How likely is it that in putting a small carton of juice in your bag, that
1. You put it in upside down.
2. You have a pen and your camera in the bag.
3. That the pen manages to pierce the little silver bit that the straw goes in - yes that tiny little hole, and
4. Ribena starts dripping down your leg and manages to cover your camera in sticky liquid!
I am looking forward to seeing what my new camera can do!
