WOYWW.....

Hi all.  I hope it's rather warmer and drier where you are today......brrrrrr and they call this summer!!

I think most of my customers have gone on holiday at the mo so my desk today is a quiet one and not worth sharing but I do have a few snaps of what I've been doing on it this week...

Last week I was in the process of planning / making a tissue box cover for my new sewing room so I've snapped a couple of pics of it now it's finished....

Every side has a handy pocket on it for all the bits and bobs I use in my sewing room and the one side even has a pin cushion.....hope you like it as much as me :-)

The other finished item I'm sharing with you today is a card I made using one of the little dumflings I've made.  I've mounted it on a toning pretty piece of fabric and edged it with machine embroidery....rather pretty isn't it? :-)

That's all I've got to share with you today.  I hope you've enjoyed your visit and will leave me a little message to let me know you've called by so I can pay you a return visit.
Hugs,
Annie x

That tissue box cover works really well, especially with the sections for the tools around it....perfect for your sewing room :-). But I'm disappointed not to see a mention of Permastiff this week........;-)
That fabric frame really does set off the dumflings perfectly..very pretty indeed. I still have your little dumflings you have me to practise on which I will be doing when life settles down a little!

Love your tissue box, what a fantastic idea to have those pockets. Why do I never have inspiration like that? Great little picture too that you have created and turned into a card - such talent Annie.
Hope the sewing room is coming on, am excited waiting for the unveil,
Hugs, Neet 25 xx

Love the pockets on the tissue box, a great idea, and your card is lovely. Send some sunshine my way if you can spare it, I'm freezing.

Ah those tissue box covers are fab! Pretty and at the same time useful.
I love the dumfling card. That is a master piece. I would frame that rather than send it to someone....
Your extension is coming on (I looked at Friday's post). How exciting!
Thanks for visiting already,
have a good week,

Good timing for customer holibobs, means you can come your head out and watch builders and do the dead heading and investigating of the gorgeous mystery plantings! Love the tissue box cover idea, how cool!
