WOYWW

Good morning to everyone who has popped into my blog to see what's on my work table today.

It hasn't seen much activity this week.
I have been plotting and planning a few crafty items but nothing much to show for it.

The dinosaur fabric is out so that I can decide what other colours I need to buy to make a quilt.
I think turquoise and orange would go well with it - what do you think?

The lighthouse picture is a little fabric collage that Maxine made.
She has sold one or two - this one is for sale if anyone wants it.
Contact me if you do and I will send you details etc)

I bought a Craftseller magazine - just for inspiration really.
Has anyone else seen it?
I am not sure I will buy another one but it did have a couple of freebies and one or two interesting items.

Short and sweet this week - I am out with my little sis today so goodness knows what mischief we will get up to!!!

Thanks for calling by and leaving lovely comments.
I will be round to visit your desk later in the week.
OK Mr Linky and the lovely Julia - here I come to join in the WOYWW fun.

x Jo

Fab fabric Jo - and yes, turquoise and orange will look great!
Not heard of that magazine and as far as I can remember not seen it in the shops either.
Have a wonderful day out and give my love to your little sis.
Hugs, Neet (keep some for yourself) xx 25

Turquoise and orange would go really well, and so would green and orange. You have made so many lovely quilts and the dinosaurs will make another I am sure. Have a lovely day out with Annie. Hugs. Kate x #61

Never read Craftseller, but I'd love to know what you think of it as I've often been tempted! x

Yep - I'm with everyone else - turquoise and orange sound great - will look forward to seeing the finished quilt. I've seen craftseller in the shops - but not bought one - so don't know what it is like inside.
Have a fabulous day with your little sis.

I agree re turquoise and orange will go very well methinks. I bought Craftseller. Like you I don't think I will buy another. Have bought one or two (or more) magazines of late and have been quite disappointed really. Too many adverts for one thing. Like you looking for inspiration but nothing working for me. Happy WOYWW Anne x #71

Love that funky fabric...great colour choice too. I have been plotting and buying mags too, but not got anywhere with it all. But we all love a mag full of pretty crafty stuff! Thanks so much for calling by last time... Good to hear for you. X Sarah.

Sandy said...

Oh I think turquoise and orange and maybe a pop of that green.. It will make a wonderful quilt. The lighthouse collage is so pretty.
Happy WOYWW

Have been subscribing to the magazine, quite useful articles for a newbie like me. But probably will not renew subscription again

I agree Turquoise and orange would look fab.

Hope you have had a lovely day with your sis

I love the fabric and think you've opted for great coordinating colors. Have fun getting into trouble with your sis!

The Weaver of Grass said...

I am always like that with magazines Twiglet - I see one and buy it and there is probably one article that I use and then I think I won't both to buy it again.

Kelly said...

I think your color choices are spot on. As to what you and lil sis will get into... if you're anything like me and my big sis, you're going to have a blast! Creative Blessings! Kelly #107

I do like the look of that fabric and think your colour choices would work perfectly. I saw that mag in the super market recently and wondered if it was any good.

I've seen the magazine but never bought it. Yes to the colour choice for the quilt! Have a great day with your sister. Hugs. Pam#36

BumbleVee said...

lucky you and Annie..... I am getting excited but, trying not to get my hopes up too high.... I may be going to B.C.... (the next province over and an 8 hour drive away) to visit my little sister. Haven't seen her for over a year and a half and a lot has happened to her in that time....including losing her son and breaking her leg and ankle, having to put down her older horse and the death of two of her old cats... it's been a horrible few years for her....she still doesn't have her son's ashes from the evil troll who was his wife... .and will never have them from the sounds of it.... she is not coping well at all and has some pretty sad days... there are so many reasons I couldn't go before now...but, this time I have to go... regardless of what happens.... or who I beat up.... I'm packing a baseball bat with me and going anyway.

Danie May said...

That dinosaur fabric is just adorable and I think turquoise and orange would be fabulous. Can't wait to see what you do... Have a great week! Danie #62

Danie May said...

Oh, I forgot to say that every-time I visit your blog header makes me smile seeing that beautiful rainbow.....

Elizabeth said...

Hi Jo, well, I know already where you went off to with your sister on Wednesday, that's what comes of me being so late in visiting this week, and, judging by the photos I've seen you had a wonderful time surprising the other Jo. The fabric is lovely and colourful and I think turquoise and orange would be perfect. Haven't seen that mag ... as I don't plan to sell I didn't think it was for me. Might flick through next time I'm in WH Smith's. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Elizabeth x #59
