WOYWW


I thought I would share two desks with you today.
Above is the table Maxine and I spent all last week working at whilst lots of folk drifted in and out of our exhibition. We had a totally brilliant week. It was just a most perfect chill out week, spent chatting, chilling and "dumfing".
The little gallery at the Old Bell Museum in Montgomery was just right for us, allowing plenty of room for us to work yet still enable folks to peruse the pictures and other artwork which decorated the walls and tabletops. (See here if you want to see what we had on display!)

The next picture shows my tidy table today with just a few vintage bargains, my bookmarks that I made last week and a "dumfed" oyster catcher which just needs some machine embroidery to finish it off.
Thanks to all who popped into my blog last week and apologies for not visiting your WOYWW blog.
I will manage it this week I am sure. Well, that is unless Annie decides she needs me to help her with her move! Still got fingers crossed here! I am sure she will have news and fab pics on her blog "A stitch in time" so pop over and see what she is up to.

Have a great week.
Thanks for calling.
x Jo

I'm so glad you had a great week together - it's not often you get that chance is it? I really wish I could have got up there to see you but it was just too far in a day :-(
Love your oyster catcher btw, you've got him spot on!

Such pretty creations! I checked out your exhibition space and that looked fabulous. Happy creating! Judy #70

Kate said...

I have some long thin plastic book mark covers that could be used for a thin item, maybe cross stitch. Can you make use of them?

Hi Jo, two super photos of fab desks. I bet folk watched you both with fascination as you dumfed ... I know I would. The oystercatcher is wonderful - you and your daughter are very talented. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #33

Thanks for telling me me what kind of bird that guy is Twig.>> I had no clue. I was thinking some kind of wader or .. hmmm..now I've forgotten the name I sort of thought it might...be... thinking....thinking.... as I sit here ....oh, just got it....I thought Sandpiper... but, not knowing at all for sure ...I must go look up Oystercatcher now...

BumbleVee said...

Aha.... sandpipers are soft brownish colours ...not blacks or whites at all....so, now I know... plus... oystercatchers eat oysters... thanks again...
