How can this be possible....

I have jars and jars of buttons - thousands, I am sure.
AND yet, I only need 4 that would either match or look good together on this 6 month size chunky jacket that I have just finished.

Guess what.....

I am going to have to buy 4 more to complete my task!
It's not a problem but ridiculous all the same.
I was hoping to find a blue, red, yellow and green to match the flecks in the wool or 4 matching denim blue ones.

So, that's what's on my table today.
Now I will visit my WOYWW friends and see what's on theirs.

Have a great week.

Well … not exactly my desk but I know Shaz in Oz will be so glad to see my post this week!

This little package arrived in the post today... check out the post date...23rd May!!
I think maybe it's flown by it's own power from Australia as it has taken two and a half months to arrive.
So, better late than never Shaz. I will be forwarding them on this week. Your little card is gorgeous and the message inside so very thoughtful. Thanks lots.

Apologies for not managing to show my desk last week - time flew by and I had a very busy week helping Tilly with mounting and finishing.
This week will be much the same so I have written this post today, Monday, ready for Wednesday - I hope that makes sense!

Thanks for calling by.

See you at your desks later.

Just a quick post before I take up my Nanny duties today.
We had a busy day yesterday too, finishing off an order for North Yorkshire and while Max beetled away, Ben and I made pizza!

On my table today is a little card that I made on Saturday - YES - I actually found time for a crafty session in my sewing room. It is for my friend's new grandson. It's just a little collage with some free machined lettering for the name.

So, that's it short and sweet.
Hope all is well with our WOYWW friends around the globe.
Thanks for calling by.

Well, what a lovely day we had yesterday!
Margaret (glitterandglue) and Annie(Wipso) called here. We had coffee and cakes followed by a quick trip over to Dobbies for lunch. Wow was it hot - Margaret's car said 36 degrees!

It was lovely to catch up with her and weather permitting we are going on a little drive over to Powis Castle on Saturday.
I just wish we had asked our "family photographer" to take a snap of the three of us.

My table has been loaded up with Ben's school uniform as I have been sewing in name labels.
BUT today it looks like this as I have a day out, so nothing will be happening here today.

I hope you are keeping cool but enjoying the Summer nevertheless.

Have a great week.

This is the reason that I am not at my workdesk today.....


In just over a week, I have mounted, labelled, numbered and catalogued over a hundred items.
There are pictures large and small, cards, pendants, bookmarks, coasters and prints.

Today Max will be taking it all down to Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre at Craven Arms and displaying it in their gallery.

Of course, mine is a fun day as Ben will be here to entertain me!

Have a great week everyone.
