WOYWW - June 8th

My room is a mess - the floor is covered with threads and fabric scraps - my table has been cleared but only because I have piled it high on a shelf out of sight!!

Happy WOYWW everyone!!!

So -  on my lovely tidy table, you can see the cards I planned with daughter M.
She thought they were fab and then floored me by suggesting I do some with flamingoes on!!
(I will give it a go as I don't like to be beaten!)
I have to credit Fi (Marmaladerose) for, yet again, inspiring me with her gorgeous cards that she made for Milkchurn Cottage.

I am loving my free machine work and today I made another "shop" picture. If you know Montgomery then you will know this shop!!

Below are just a few of the colours in my garden at present. Mostly blues and purply pinks.






It was great to visit as many folk as I did last week. I don't think I made it to everyone but I had a really good try!! Thanks for all your lovely comments too. I am looking forward to seeing all those PiFs on display.
Mine has a long way to come but I don't mind waiting!!
Have a fab week. Join in this mad blog hop by following me over to Julia's Stamping Ground and checking out the blogs on Mr Linky.

Hi Jo,
Your cards are very pretty I especially like the Mum one so I might be taking inspiration from you this time, lol. I have a list from Karen of cards that she'd like for her whirly-gig-thingy.

Thanks for the mention sweetie your iron mongers shop is fab, I really must get around to doing some more of mine but things got put on hold when the sweet shop owner mentioned the word 'copyright' to me! All sorted now though.(hopefully)
Need to pick your brains - I noticed a Husqvarna sewing machine on your desk. I need a new bulb for mine, its a funny little push in one. Do you know where I can get one from? It's mighty gloomy stitching in the dark!

Hi Jo...you just gave me an idea
Would you do the camper?..
Phil's birthday 20th June and he would love a NooNoo picture with all the flags on it lol
Not expecting it for the 20th though but as soon as you can

Hello Jo, you are an artist! I love this picture with the Montgomery shop. Fantastic creation! I just managed yesterday to "re-pile" in my craft room, only because there was no space anymore to do anything. So glad to hear that others are in the same circumstances ;-). I love especially the blue of your delphinium.

If you've been to Montgomery you know all the shops because last time I counted them on one hand. The hardware, got it all, labyrinth shop is just a gob-smacker...could lose a husband in there for a year or two.

Such great sewing - captures the mood so well.
