Good morning all.
What a lovely start to September we are having.

I had a fun day out with Maxine yesterday visiting the little Shropshire town of Shifnal.
It has some lovely little shops and I found the Flower Fairy book in a charity shop.
I thought I might create some little collages using the book and poems for inspiration.
The green yarns are for our needle felted pictures. They will be useful for the backgrounds to Maxine's little embroidered pictures.
I found the fabrics at our local car boot sale - not sure why I "needed" them but they will come in handy I am sure.
A girl can never have enough fabric!

Annie will be writing her own blog this week, now that she is back online so I will let her tell you how she is settling in to her new "life".

Have a good week and hopefully I will get round to a few more WOYWW desks now that my computer has settled down.

Some yummy yarn there, Jo. Oh, I do so agree that a girl can never have enough fabric! I love a visit to Abakhan.... and I ALWAYS take John with me, as his principle is "It won't be there when you come again, and it won't go off"!!!
Take care. God bless.

Hi Jo, I've linked into WOYWW for the first time and I'm happily snooping around.
I love the 'flower fairies'. I remember the illustrations from my childhood.
I'm looking forward to visit you again and see what you create.
Thank you for sharing your desk.
Happy WOYWW!

I had to look Shifnal up on Googe maps, had no idea where it was even though my knowledge of UK geography is pretty good! It sounds a nice little town in which you managed to find crafty have a knack :-)
Hope Maxine is keeping well, not long now eh?
Hugs, LLJ 24 xx
