Yes, back to school time for Nanny!

This week I have been busy with all sorts of necessary little jobs like shortening trousers and making 2 bags for Ben. The left hand one is made from a T shirt collected by Max after doing a 10K run. Quite appropriate little logo for his PE bag I thought.
The other bag is for his out door wear for forest school etc.

All good fun!

I am late posting today - I just seem to be a bit busy.
I spent most of yesterday taking down the Tilly Tea Dance exhibition and sorting all the pictures etc into the right places ready for their next purpose. I am sure she will be pleased at the result when she returns from her hols.

So, short and sweet today.
It's cooler and raining at the moment so I will catch up with a few jobs before meeting up with friends in Ruthin tomorrow.

Have a good week.

How can this be possible....

I have jars and jars of buttons - thousands, I am sure.
AND yet, I only need 4 that would either match or look good together on this 6 month size chunky jacket that I have just finished.

Guess what.....

I am going to have to buy 4 more to complete my task!
It's not a problem but ridiculous all the same.
I was hoping to find a blue, red, yellow and green to match the flecks in the wool or 4 matching denim blue ones.

So, that's what's on my table today.
Now I will visit my WOYWW friends and see what's on theirs.

Have a great week.

Well … not exactly my desk but I know Shaz in Oz will be so glad to see my post this week!

This little package arrived in the post today... check out the post date...23rd May!!
I think maybe it's flown by it's own power from Australia as it has taken two and a half months to arrive.
So, better late than never Shaz. I will be forwarding them on this week. Your little card is gorgeous and the message inside so very thoughtful. Thanks lots.

Apologies for not managing to show my desk last week - time flew by and I had a very busy week helping Tilly with mounting and finishing.
This week will be much the same so I have written this post today, Monday, ready for Wednesday - I hope that makes sense!

Thanks for calling by.

See you at your desks later.
