WOYWW

 Happy Wednesday everyone!
The sun is shining ( well it was 5 mins ago but looks like rain now!)

If it rains I will be sewing, if the sun shines I am going up onto the hills to pick billberries.
So, here is my table today.

The little lavender shrug was finished yesterday and is now in our blog shop gifts section.They have proved very popular so I thought I would pop one in the shop.


Beside the shrug is a lovely piece of lavender babycord fabric which I am going to use for a little pinafore dress. I took a pattern from one Wipso bought, as it was such a simple design. You can see my funny little sketch.

Below are just a few of the photos that I took at Shrewsbury Flower Show on Friday. It poured with rain all day but that didn't stop us enjoying the wonderful displays of plants and flowers in the big tents.













Righto....
Sewing it is then, as big black clouds have descended on us.


Blog update:
I never got to sew or pick billberries as Wipso and I ended up in hospital with her neighbour!! Long story but we spent the afternoon keeping her company whilst she waited for assessment.
Oh well, tomorrow is another day!!
Hopefully, I will have time to visit lots more WOYWWers today - you are such a lovely bunch - I do enjoy my Wednesday snoop! If you want to join in, then nip over to Julia's blog and check out the 130+ blogggers who share their workdesk every week.

Look forward to seeing the developments of the little dress :-) No rain here so you can always pop down here if you need to top up your tan :-)

Oh blueberry picking, think that would be a nice way to be spending your day. But hey, sewing isn't too bad either.
The flowers look so gorgeous!

Lovely tidy desk Jo!

I hope the clouds clear so you can get out and go fruit picking too!

The baby cord fabric is gorgeous but it's all of the 'fluff' that comes off a piled fabric that makes me cringe! I end up still finding it for weeks afterwards! lol! yeah I know, I need a NEW dyson maybe! lol!

Hope you have a FAB day Jo!

we had awful black clouds all morning, then at 3pm torrential downour, really rattled the windows. But now it is drying up, and the sky is bright blue with fluffy white cloads, shame it is too late to go anywhere.

I haven't been bilberry picking in years, last time was criky, must be 15 years or more ago.

Doone said...

are bilberries liek cloudberries?

not sure I have ever eaten them?

Angie said...

Claireliz said...

the colour on that little shrug is so pretty . The pics of the flower show are fab it must have been amazing!

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh you are a good friend and of course, fab sister...what would that lovely neighbour do without you. The billberries may not wait, but the pinny will - and I didn't think your sketch was funny...still so impressed that you don't need a pattern! And yep - both of you - come on over, but probably not to clean my stamps...they'll be OK, honest!

Love that little shrug. Aren't flower shows fantastic, I went to the Tatton RHS show in July and I thoroughly enjoyed it and spent loads on new plants for the garden, such a great day out. Hope your neighbour is feeling better soon. Have a good evening, Tracy Evans x

Hope the neighbour is ok :)
Hopefully you will get to your sewing tomorrow :)

Candace said...

Just love hand knits and pinafores for little ones. sadly at 7 my Daughter tells me she is 'too old for baby things'!

Just makes them look individual and innocent unlike current adult fashions which are what the shops sell

Thanks for sharing

Hugs Candace

Hi 2pm at the Theatre was the plan but they did say they might not be able to serve us coffee (fully booked tables)so it that's the case we culd use the small cafe by the side of the theatre?
Any good 2pm?

That shrug is adorable. Wish we had some of your rain. Sorry to read about the neighbor. Hope all turned out well. Of course, you know I wouldn't miss visiting for anything, but I contracted a computer virus. It's still not fixed, but I had to make sure I wasn't infecting anyone. Happy belated WOYWW.
