    The Bank Holiday weekend is here, bringing imminent rain, and we’re off to the glampsite again! We thought we’d try a Saturday this time as the numbers booked into the campsite start to drop after the holiday Monday. Will let you know how we get on.

    It went brilliantly, thank you, Ivybags and Sazzie! 😀

    The weather improved and stayed dry all day, unexpectedly. We had a nice steady flow of people sewing, and Keri kept us supplied with cups of tea and a (huge) piece of cake – thank goodness we were sharing it!! 😉

    Patrice here’s Mum wasn’t feeling very well, so Tanya brought Patrice to come and sew with us. She was very sensible and made a good job of her bag. Her dad took some photos too.

    Coastal Valley - result!

    We’d brought M/C’s mum’s old Singer for an airing. It hadn’t been used for a while and needed a bit of TLC to sew properly. The trouble proved to be a disagreement between the sewing machine and the thread it had been provided with…. 😕

    I know we’ll be going back to Coastal Valley again, and not just for the tea and cake! 😀

    Brilliant! Thank you for that splendid report and pics. Good day’s work that!
    I am so glad it didn’t rain after all.

    Fantastic venue you have there. I could happily move in for the summer. I think it would be good to morsbag inside a nice marquee to do when it is raining outside! Just like our yurt venue!

    The glamsite looks a lovely venue, glad the weather was kind to you.
    Love your folding screen display board

    Thank you Agwen. M/C made the screen a few years ago. It’s handy having something for people who are waiting for friends/ family, or for their turn to have something to look at. I don’t think you can see it, but there’s some string tying the screen to the frame of the tent as it was a gusty day!

    I’ve just noticed a funny thing though – two of the photos have disappeared and there’s just a link to them. I’m sure they were displayed when I posted them. If you click on the link you can see the photo, but they’ve gone from here. Most odd! 😕

    And now FIVE of the photos have disappeared, to be replaced by a link! I’ve been robbed!

    Now the one that I spotted was missing is back, with 2 others but the rest have gone. I’m leaving – too confusing….. 😕

    M/C says it’s likely that the servers where the morsbags website is hosted were being fiddled with earlier, while I could only see some of the photos – at least, I think that’s what he meant….

    I have noticed photos being replaced by a question mark on some posts. I guess that is when people take them off flickr at a later date.

    Hi, I think it must have been a Flickr issue not a morsbags server issue as they are stored at Flickr. If anything something went on when our server contacted Flickr – maybe they refused to send the picture to our server or something – but all looks good now anyway
