WOYWW - April 20th!!

Late posting today as we have just returned from daughter M's birthday celebrations.
We had a lovely meal out last night and today, ordered lots of timber for a little garden project her Dad is helping her with.

So - better late than never.......
My desk today.
A fab card from Jozart - so clever - you pull the little ribbons and the sides slide out. All brilliantly decorated with little sewing accessories. I love it - thanks Jo.
The pinky bits in front are the remains of some free machine embroidery which I made into a card for M's birthday. She loved it as it matches her lounge colour scheme, so I am now busy mounting it, so that she can hang it on the wall.

The idea came from my Quilting Arts Mag.
There are some great ideas for textile art in the mag, so I may try a few more.

And lastly, just a little flavour of the lovely day we had on Saturday at Tina & Gavin's wedding.
It was a fab day full of sunshine, flowers, family, fab outfits and lots of love.
It really was a special day and we were so happy to be part of it.
We met some lovely friends and family members and hope that we can meet up again before too long.

Scrummy cupcakes beside the official wedding cake-

Beautiful flowers decorating a lovely room-
And  a fab pair of shoes!
Ok - Over to Julia's blog to put my name on the Mr Linky list and see what everyone else is up to today on the mad blog hop.
Enjoy this fantastic weather everyone and have a great week!

Don't know which to single out - the cupcakes are calling though as I would love to pop one into my mouth right now! They look scrummily scrumptuous. Love those shoes though - what a gorgeous colour they are too and the flowers are so pretty and summery. But then there is your free machine embroidery - no wonder she loved it - gorgeous!
Thanks for sharing so much.
Hugs, Neet x #11

Lol - just to let you all know - they were not my shoes!! I wish! Mine were strappy and dainty but heels only half as high!

What a great card and your free sewing machine art is beautiful! I assume the bag you made matched the dress and the fabulous shoes? Patsy from
