Good morning all!!
Help yourself to a cupcake.

I did my usual trick of working down at Annie's yesterday - free machining my cupcakes - it's OK there isn't a law against it yet!

The lovely LLJ gave me some beautiful fabric to use for my daughter's charity that she works for.
So Jan, I just cut out the cupcakes and free machined them to some vintage broiderie anglais.
Maxine will love them and they will sell well at their "Shropshire Bake-off" in September, I hope.
Also, I have taken a pic of each one and can print some off on my sparkly new printer too.

Below are some more gorgeous ATCs that Mr Postie has dropped through my letterbox.
Thanks lots to all our happy crafters who have been so kind in swapping their little works of art with us. Every one of you have said what a fab group the WOYWWers are and I can only agree - thanks Mrs Dunnit - hope you are enjoying your hols!

Short and sweet this week.

Hope you are all well and enjoying the sunshine.
Thanks for popping by.
Have a great week.
x Jo

Good morning, Jo. Lovely cards there. I'm sure they will indeed sell well. Great stuff! Such gorgeous things, these little ATCs, aren't they? What fun we have all had winging them across the globe!
Have a great week.

Stunning cupcakes. Fabric on paper suits you. I KNOW they will sell this fall, and you are doing well to get as many made early as possible.

I would have been by earlier to leave a personal thank you note for the beautiful ATC you sent, but I fell asleep at the wrong time. Seems I'm not the only one whose day and night are mixed up, since Julia and the linky are both on holiday apparently. Anyway, thank you again for the beautiful ATC. Stunning doesn't begin to describe it.

Hi Jo,

What a fantastic bundle of cupcakes you have created there and a brilliant collection of ATC's too, lucky you. Happy WOYWW sorry it has been awhile since I have been here, i do hope you forgive me.

Hugs Eliza & Yoda

Just like the real deal...the cupcakes are sweet. AND I love the copy/print idea for multiples.
Some more great ATC's just amazes me the fun it gives. Enjoy the week near perfect weather here so I'll be outside !

Those cakes look yummy!

You clever, clever bunny....what an awesome idea. Those are going to sell out in the first 5 minutes!! The printed images would make fantastic thank you postcards or similar. I love them. I am going to have to come to you for free machining lessons one of these days. Right, let me look at my diary....
Thanks for your well wishes for Julia, I have passed them on...
Jan xxxx

As Julia is out of action this week, I am working from last week's list. In case you have not read Lunch Lady Jan's blog, Julia is actually in hospital, and Jan will let us know how things are. I love each and every one of those beautiful cards. I hope you have a really good week. xx Maggie
