WOYWW.....

Another busy week for me and the sun has been shining too.  This means there has been time spent outside at the weekend.

Monday was another fun day and the table had 4 of us round this week.  My Tuesday afternoon coffee friend has been off work following having her tonsils out [ouch] so she brought her knitting round and joined in the fun and laughter [and chocolates of course...thanks T].  Twiglet sat on her sewing machine creating another amazing work of art in her Montgomery featured range of buildings [I'm sure she will be doing a show and tell of it soon].  T sat the other side of the table on her machine making a beautiful appliqued owl cushion [I hope to show you that when she has finished it] and our friend E and I sat knitting [E is knitting a beautiful fluffy scarf and I'm knitting the next little hoodie for one of the grandbabies].  What an industrial lot we looked.


During our funday Monday I had a lot of customers with a lot of items of clothing so it was a catch up Tuesday...that is in between a hair cut, a house viewing at our neighbours house [ yes folks, we are now able to sell out elderly neighbours house for her :-) ] and of course Tuesday afternoon's coffee time with E.  :-) so this is what is on my 'to do' rail today.



I have now finished the beautiful baby blanket.



This is just a close up of the border....I love it cos it has really brought the right colours out in the blanket.






Of course it wouldn't be a Wednesday show and tell without just a few snaps of our garden for you.

A newly trimmed front hedge.  This took all of Sunday afternoon to trim and we still have the other side to do for our neighbour!










A much treasured old milk churn of my fathers that sits by my sewing room door and looks lovely with the begonias in the top.



I couldn't resist a quick snap of this beautiful clematis....I really love this colour and shall prob use this picture as inspiration for one of my fabric pictures.


Look at this amazing flower head on this dahlia.  Isn't it just gorgeous?  Thanks M [this was one you gave us].

Now folks I would like to thank you for dropping in.  Please leave me a comment if only to say hello and then pop over to Julia's to join in the WOYWW fun and to find out more if you have no idea what I am talking about.

I'm a convert to dahlias, they last for ages and put out lots of flowers - that's a particularly pretty one though. Your garden looks beautiful, I'm redesigning mine soon - it's all part of my Big Birthday. I don't want presents, just stuff for the garden :P Thanks for you kind words about the doorstop - it's filled with polyester wadding and dried split peas!! xx

Sue from Oregon said...

such pretty baby things you have been making! And such a lovely garden as well! TFS!

mckinkle said...

Your garden is looking truly beautiful Annie, its always such a wonderful walk around your highlights as Ive only got a courtyard!

That stunning Clematis is so vibrant and healthy looking - it is so unlike what our potted versions look like :(

Your milk churn is so retro and fabulous, it really does evoke all sorts of memories when I see it so I can imagine how you must feel about it!

Catching up..so peeped about a bit
(and very handsome too)..sounds like a fun concert. and lots of great visual effects (and very handsome too). Here I love your finished items and the lovely flowers. Have 3 grandchildren visiting, so fun busy...but 117 heat index so miserable outside. Enjoy the week

Elizabeth said...

Lovely post - thoroughly enjoyed reading about your crafting afternoon - reminds me of the sewing bees women went to in the past. Your garden photos are gorgeous, especially that clematis. Of course, I've noseyed on and seen the sweet little jacket, it's looks really cosy. As for the 'very handsome' young men - methinks you are perhaps just a tad smitten :) Elizabeth x #99
