WOYWW - Twiglet exposed!

Happy Wednesday all!!
This week we have had fun day Monday - thanks to Wipso and friend T - we had lots of giggles, chocolate and crafting.
Haircut Tuesday - might bare all and show you what it looks like.
WOYWWednesday sees me crafting lovely gifts for friends' birthdays and a special wedding anniversary.
Not sure what the rest of the week will hold but I won't be bored, that's for sure!

My table is loaded with bits and bobs that I will need for one project or another.......
  • a couple of pieces of fabric from the carboot sale
  • two little picture frames for me to re-fill with some of my collages
  • a half-made collage
  • the latest Quilting Arts mag
There is always something to keep me busy and, just to have time to craft for the sheer pleasure of it, is my idea of heaven.
This is one of my little projects from last week.
It's a named card (name deleted) for a friend to give as a Christening gift.


I used embroidery canvas as a base and then added lace, fabric, buttons etc to make the little picture.

Hope you have a great day.
Thanks to all who visited and left lovely comments last week. I had a busy week so only managed to visit about 30 desks - not many when you think there are about 150 of us blog hopping each week!
Must try to do better.
So, over to the lovely Julia's to see if she is bothering to blog for us today or if she has handed it over to another very capable friend like last week!!!

Oh and here goes - I will bare all.......
My hairdo - thanks to Val for another great job!

Gorgeous new hair Twiggers - lovely indeedy. Love the christening card - it will be a real forever treasure. And the fabric from the boot sale - is all over my friend's bedroom - same pattern on silver wallpaper and in reverse colours for her curtains and duvet cover as your fabric. Popular choice!

Ohh la la

le French Chic Bob (pronounced Berb)

a real head turning stunner of a cut...

I SAW YOUR EMBROIDERY in Montgomery & chattered to Mrs Shop Owner and begged her (well asked her anyway) to join in WOYWW again - her collages are Just so Beautiful,

I am inches from purchasing your Bunner piece of Art..

I just need to re save some pennies after changing my tyres and spending obscene amounts on french linen textiel fabrics for which I have major plans thanks to Sasa Sarah......

honestly the photos on the blog do your work little justice.

Very nice haircut there - mine is getting to that "scruffy" stage at the mo but will have to wait until end of the month!! I am meeting a cousin at the beginning of Aug for the first time so want it tidy!
Lovely view behind you there.
Cute little card. I am not surprised it is an owl though!!

Jackie said...

I wish your Val was my hairdresser. I went for a pre birthday trim yesterday, hoping for something like yours (like last time) and he got a bit snip happy and now its short. Boo hoo.
You look very nice indeed! More photos. And you don't look as if you are anywhere near catching me up.

Polly Polkadot said...

Love the new do. I really love the landscape view! Green is awesome! It has been so hot here that the grass is brown and what wasn't killed by the hail storm last month is frying in the heat. Love the Christening gift. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #44

fairyrocks said...

Fun friends and chocolate, life is good. Nice do too!! I haven't had my hair professionally cut for probably 12 years...Its great at Halloween for that authentic witch look LOL
Keep smiling and creating

butlersabroad said...

I'd like to say it's nice to see you exposed but I don't think it sounds right, lol!! Love that fabric, especially the large print flower one. Plus, the view from your garden is to die for, how do you get anything done? I'd sit out there all day and not achieve anything.

Hugs
Brenda

Great desk this week. That's really pretty fabric - looks like boot sales are worth a visit. Your card is a lovely piece of work - it's sure to become an heirloom. Very smart haircut, you can't beat a visit to the hairdresser to lift your spirits. Hope your weekend is a good one. Elizabeth x #72
