Check out this Video!

A friend saw me today, on a program on national Australian TV called Stateline, and wrote to tell me. Thanks, Bunty!

Well it was true enough - it was recorded over two years ago and I had forgotten about it - and I had never seen it! I am the one in the bright pink blouse and glasses - who gets called by the wrong name. Story of my life - my "15 minutes of fame" and get called the wrong name!

It was for a girl called Samantha who started a business on a government grant called Biddy Bags. Little did I realize at the time that the term "Biddy" referred to me and the other ladies, as in "Old Biddies" ! What a cheek! LOL!

But hey I was given the yarn (organic cotton from Lion Brand) and paid to make some dishcloths so who's complaining! I never got to make any of the bags though.

Just one of life's experiences!

Incognito... I love the bags but they are a bit pricey.

I can't believe they gave me someone else's name! I am the one in the pink blouse and glasses - sitting apart from the others - I get to talk a bit later on LOL!

How lovely they are! If they were offered in LA everyone would make a mint but here... You have such marvelous skills. I wish women's craft work was more valued. I can sell a drawing for $100 so why not crochet. (I actually don't crochet, only knit)
BTW I don't like the idea of people calling other people biddies without their approval. Seems rude to me even though well meant.

Happy New Year my pet
was looking for a pattern for a plum pud tea cosie the other day - couldn't find one of course - but what did pop up was a pic of a crochet one made/sold by Biddy Bags ... which of course made me think of your own sweet self and the fact that I haven't written for a while. So here I am [[ waves from down south ]]
