WOYWW

Happy Wednesday to one and all of you WOYWWers.  Another fab week has passed with all the excitement of the Royal Wedding and a bank holiday with gorgeous weather to enjoy a few days off.
Firstly I would like to show you a few pics of crafty creating.

This is my latest finished little knittie.  I now have a white hoodie to knit for one of my customers before I knit the next for the family.  Both daughters have their gender scans on 14th so I will know more what colours to knit then  :-)  I've been asked to go with the eldest daughter to see the scan so am really excited at seeing the babies.

Wedding season has started here too and I already have a wedding dress and set of bridesmaids here to alter.  This bride has chosen to have her bridesmaids all in different colours and what a pretty choice of colours she has made.
Having missed yet another funday Monday Twiglet and I decided we needed to have a funday Tuesday this week instead so she joined me for a creative day yesterday.  I was seriously missing creative crafting time so I had my embellisher set up by the time she arrived and surrounded myself with dumfing inspiration [ for those that still don't know what dumfing is please click on the link to the right to find out more  :-)  ].

I really enjoyed a creative day and was proud of my efforts having dumfed a picture using the inspiration all around me....hope you like my bluebell woods pic.  I may well tweak it a little yet before I finally frame it properly but I rather like how it's going.
What a fabulous weekend we all had weather wise.  My darling hubby and I spent most of it in the garden pulling weeds, tidying up the flower beds and generally having a good sort out of sheds etc.

Here you can see how my hubby has cut a doorway into the weeping willow so that the children can use it as a play tent / hidey hole.  They haven't seen it yet but I know I would have loved playing in there when I was little.

The wisteria is now out in full bloom and smells just wonderful.....if only I wasn't suffering hay fever.  :-(









These are some of the blue bells in the back garden with our deep red peony on the right just coming into bloom.  Maybe you can see where my inspiration for my dumfing came from now  :-)





Thanks for popping by and for all your wonderful comments.  I do hope you will now pop over to Julia's and join in the WOYWW madness but be warned cos it is addictive  :-)

what a wonderful time of year for you, with all the beautiful flowers. your garden is so lovely and how nice for the children to have a place to play under the weeping willow. your garden really does make for great inspiration. the bluebell woods pic is so lovely. it must take a lot of practice in dumfing to come up with something like that.

karen said...

Oooh, I love your Bluebell Woods picture! And how lovely that the inspiration is from your own lovely garden!
Also loving the little bitty hoody! I want one in my size!
Happy WOYWW!

Angie said...

What a wonderful post. That was a brilliant idea to cut the door in the tree ...bet they love it.
I LOVE that hoody and your Bluebell wood picture is captivating ...brought back memories of taking the children, when they were little, to the bluebell laden woods when we live in Norwood... I think we went to Seven Oaks.

Hayley said...

Beautiful pictures and the little jacket is soooo cute. happy WOYWW

rach said...

love those bridesmaid colours and that garden is beautiful, must have taken loads of hard work

sasa said...

so much crating yumminess - love the graduated colour on that hoodie - wonderful - babies need to stay smaller longer to show these stunners off.

Thanks for sharing your space,

Beautiful knittie! Thanks for the snoop :)

mckinkle said...

Hello Annie,

What lovely posts you have over the last couple of weeks, how lovely to read that you will be there for the sexing scan shortly, how exciting?!

Your knitties are all looking beautiful and so neatly stored too Annie! I love the recent one, the pattern is super, they all love hoodies dont they!

Your beautiful bluebell picture is adorable but I was only saying yesterday that our usual big bluebell wood was very very disappointing this year. They all came up at different times so we didnt ever get the full effect which was such a shame as I was eagerly awaiting the full show, never mind eh!

Have a fab week,
Keryn x

Kathleen said...

You are an inspiration love your knits and the bluebell wood.

Neet said...

Well, we started off the journey today by talking about the colours for baby hoodies, then relaxed into that beautiful choice of colours for bridesmaid dresses (I agree, great choice). Then it was dumfing all the way and finally we were treated to a wonderful array of garden flowers.
Thank you for that wonderful assault on one of my senses. I loved every minute of it but spied more garden on the post below - off for a nosey.
Hugs, neet x

I'm in LOVE with the bluebells in the woods. This felted beauty is awesome. And if you miss funday Monday, then funday Tuesday is the time to make it up. Great idea. Happy WOYWW (#6).

Hi again Wipso,
I reckon a garden is essential to childhood games - not always possible but it makes fine memories.
Your life is filled with gentle excitement that comes with new life, whether it's babies or spring.
Happy days,

YOur garden is stunning and your grandchildren will be thrilled when they find a lovely cubby. You have been busy with the knitting,dumfing and the usual work. Wow.... Thanks for the beautiful poem.

Mrs A. said...

The bridesmaids dress colours are lovely. Your wisteria is looking fab. we have just had a fir tree taken out of the front garden and it has left a huge section of trellis bare which we think a Wisteria would look good against.
