This week, as you may already know, started out with a mini-catastrophe when my hard drive crashed. Pretty dreadful stuff, especially for someone like me who is so-oo bad at backing stuff up - fortunately I didn't lose much (apart from sleep, time and a little money funding a new hard drive!) but it definitely taught me a lesson!
I'm now backing everything up at Just Cloud - after the initial downloading it backs up atomatically every day for me, which is just amazing as I don't need to think or worry about it. It means I can access it anywhere, too, and it doesn't take up any space. If you sign up for it using this link I get some free storage space, apparently, but I do have bucketloads of space to use anyway. If you don't use cloud storage, make sure you do back up.
Some things are just irreplaceable. Like...
My granddaughter Emily is fascinated by eggs (she plays with some wooden turned eggs at my house, plus she loves to collect eggs from the chicken coop - she loves the chickens, too). Last week, she watched me break an egg and then tried - very carefully - to put the shell back together again!
She gave up in the end - but she wasn't happy about the idea of putting it in the bin!
In other news this week, it was lovely to discover that Abakhan had linked to my beach huts bag on their email newsletter!
It was also nice to discover that Popular Crafts had mentioned Handmade Monday in their magazine! Unfortunately, the link was to my website, where most people probably just got lost and gave up, as there's no mention of Handmade Monday there.
Ah well, it's always nice to have a mention (and I did get a lot of people visiting my website)! Perhaps I should email the editor and maybe we'll get another mention!
I've not managed to get much done on the sewing front this week, but I have two deadlines looming so my sewing machine will be whirring into action very soon. There's a couple of upcycling commissions on the horizon, too, which is quite exciting!
Over to you - and this week I'm hoping no disasters prevent me from enjoying a good mooch around your blogs.
