WOYWW.....

What a wonderful week of celebrations last week was.  I could picture parcels going from house to house and also from country to country.  What wonderful business we were for the postal service  :-)

 This was the gift I sent to Kate.  I made her a desk tidy with one of my poppy pictures printed onto the fabric in the base and the WOYWW acronym accross the bottom so it blended into the leaves.



Kate very kindly sent me this pretty card to say thank you.  What a lovely way to link up new friends Julia.








This was the lovely gift I received from Kezzy.  It is now hanging very proudly in my sewing room.
[And I would have sent her a thank you card if only she had remembered to put her name and address on the parcel!  :-)  ].
Thank you so much Kezzy.





On my desk today are the brooches that I am in the process of making to restock the blog shop.  All our brooches that we had in the shop have now gone to Tina's shop up at Montgomery so Twiglet and I are now designing the new brooches to go in our shop.  Hope you like how these are going.....I prepared the petals / leaves on our Funday Monday and have now sorted out buttons for the centres and when I have time I will sew them together.


The only other thing I have on my desk today are curtains to shorten!......yuck yuck yuck.
It's not that I don't like these curtains...they are actually very nicely made curtains and I rather like the fabric.
It's just that they are heavy and there is a lot of fabric to heave around while I shorten them.......STOP moaning Annie and just get on with it!!!

Well girls thats it from me for today.  I really hope you have something more exciting than curtains needing shortening to show and tell on your desk today.  I will be around to visit all I can, when I can find a minute spare.  Pop over to Julia's blog and join in the WOYWW fun and I will hope to see you again soon.

Lovely gifts! I adore the poppies. xxx

tricia said...

What a pretty PIF you made - love the poppy theme.
Curtains are the most aweful thing to alter - don't know why people don't just buy the right length in the first place!!!

Love your poppy tray PIF and your new brooches. I actually do have a pair of curtains need shortening as they are scrapping along the unit under the window but only needs 1" taking off. Hardly worth the bother which is why I havn't done it yet!!!!! hugs Mrs A. #101
