Just a few pics of Maxine's exhibition.
I might add a photo of our workdesk in the gallery later today.
So far we have had a brilliant time.
It's a lovely place to be and we have met so many friendly folk!
We are open until 4pm Thursday 31st if you fancy popping over to see us in the Old Bell Museum gallery Montgomery.

Click to enlarge the pics.

I might not have time to visit many desks until the weekend.
I hope you are enjoying your week as much as me!

Thanks for calling.

Friday smile

Look at that blue sky!
Welcome to the Old Bell Museum in Montgomery.
What a brilliant day we have had.
Our little gallery looked so pretty with walls filled with Maxine's needle-felted pictures and other bits and bobs. (I will post more pics next week).
Lots of lovely folk called in to look around including several friends and even folks from New Zealand.
We enjoyed ourselves just chatting and needle-felting a few more items.
I am still smiling just thinking about it!
Join in with more Friday smiles over on Annie's "A stitch in time" blog.
Thanks for calling by.

Just a quick post today - from my dumfing desk at Annie's!!
Doesn't she always capture me in a pensive mood! I do smile - honest I do!!!
I am making some bookmarks for our exhibition.
Annie says to note all the boxes and clutter behind me - eagerly awaiting a moving date!

If you fancy popping over to the exhibition - the details are below....

Apologies in advance, just in case I don't get round many desks this week.
I am busy getting ready for the above. I will set it up on Thursday evening and then Maxine and I will be there from Friday onwards. I won't have computer access and we will probably spend our days dumfing, demonstrating and chilling out. Bliss!

Have a great week everyone - enjoy the sunshine.

Thanks for calling by.

WOYWW -vintage haberdashery

 Just look at all these goodies I found at the car boot sale!

They all pre-date 1967 and most of them are priced at less than a shilling in old pennies.
(One shilling was the same as 5p when we converted to decimal currency)

Annie and I shared them out on Monday as there were fastenings etc that she might use in her sewing business. I am sure the rest will come in handy for something.

Below is the state of my desk today.
There is a little needlefelted collage and a pink canvas that I made down at Annie's this week.
Also you can see a part finished katie Morag. I thought we would have some of our old favourites on a table at Maxine's exhibition
(Old Bell Museum, Montgomery, POWYS. 25th -31st July 10 -4 pm.)

Come along if you are in the area - we would love to see you.

Today I am busy finishing my curtains (Argh!!) for my newly decorated bedroom.
So I will leave you to snoop my WOYWW desk.
Have a great week.
Thanks for calling.
