WOYWW....

Hello my blogging friends.  I have been away for a few days well earned rest and to celebrate my Birthday but am back today.  We had a lovely few days in a cottage near Skipton with some very special Dutch friends.  We met them on a campsite in France in 2000 and vowed to meet up at least once every year.  Good friends should be treasured and although we have only a short time with them each year it's like we have never been apart and share lots of fun and laughter together....just what the Dr ordered  :-)

So for whats on my work desk this morning ....



.....I only have one item on my 'to do' rail so far.  It's a skiing jacket that needs a new open-ended zip.  It has lots of top stitching to unpick before I can replace the zip so it will take me a while.  I have now got 1034 customers so doubt my rail will stay so empty for long  :-)






.....I have just got my Christmas materials out for some inspiration as to what I am going to do for my Christmas cards this year.  I have such a lot of lovely materials but so far I'm not feeling very inspired....any ideas girls?






That's all from me today girls so if you want to pop over to Julia's blog you can have a snoop at lots of other crafter's desks and catch up with what they have been up to this week.

Glad you have had a lovely restful weekend away, you deserve it. Love your pile of Christmas materials, how pretty they are.

Susan Allan said...

You seem to have had a lovely birthday. The fabrics are interesting, I like the blue and lilac and would probably put them together. Other than that, no ideas!!

Me neither, have no inspiration yet for x-mas cards. Too early?

Happy belated Birthday, dear Annie and wishing you good health, all the rest will be coming alone then.

P.S. You are very right that one should treasure good friends and not postpone any possibility to meet with them!

Your rail looks perfect for someone who's just back from a break! Who needs loads of work to return to anyway!! Im sure you'll have washloads etc to keep you busy plus visiting a certain Sock Lady who clearly has been missing her sparring partner!!

Sarah Anderson said...

sounds like you had a fun time away for your birthday. I'm a snowflake girl when it comes to Christmas cards so a piece of blue fabric stitched around with a large punched snowflake and I'd be away! But don't forget your embellisher trees from the other week, they'd be cool on a card :) Sarah #110

Very lovely Christmas stuff - and a restful weekend is always good.

Neet said...

Love your material - imagine what you can do with that blue one. Utterly gorgeous. #46

SueH said...

A rare occurrence indeed Annie to see your rail so empty but I’m sure that knowing you it won’t stay that way for long.
The stash of Christmas material looks so lush.
Maybe you could make some tiny rosettes and arrange thing into a wreath on the front of cards….just a thought!

Julia Dunnit said...

How nice to hear that you've enjoyed a break, I must say I often worry about your pace! Those fabrics are lovely..how about stitching narrow tubes, filling them with a strand of thick wool and plaiting three into a wreath to stick on a card? I know, easy for me to say!!

Suz said...

Was it for you or the star of the show? hehe
Hope it was a fun filled day and everyone found something they liked ready for the big day
Thanks...Feeling better this morning
thank goodness!
