Hello all. What a wonderful week it's been.
A lot of you will know what I mean by WOYWW and for those that don't you can find out all about it here at Julia's blog. This week we all celebrated 6 years of blogging our creative spaces and linking up to folk from all over the world. Thanks to Julia many Wednesdays of linking up our work desks with others has found many friendships being made....some meeting up in real life and others just enjoying the love and support our blogging friends give us in good times and bad from all corners of the world. Each year we make ATCs [artist trading cards] to celebrate and swap them with our friends so each day this week my postman has brought me envelopes full of love.....every one of them making me smile. I plan to snap pics of all I've been sent and will do a show and tell of them on Wednesday so please pop back then to see them.
Thanks to all who joined in our fun here last week again. We all have so much to be thankful for and sharing our smiles makes the world a happier place doesn't it? This week I'm featuring Elizabeth's post from last week. The gorgeous flowers made me smile and her joke of the week really made me chuckle....thanks for sharing it Elizabeth.
This week has been half term holiday so I've not had Nanny school run duties [of course I have still seen them and enjoyed their company :-) ] so my smiles this week are a little different...
I've been playing with some of my favourite fabrics doing a bit more crazy patchwork....these only come out and get used for my special friends :-)
I really love the colours I've been working on here.
This is the next combination of colours I'm going to use for the next piece.
I love sewing in my favourite colours. How about you? What are your favourites and do you tend to work with the colours you love or do you find it easy to work with other colours too?
This is another little project I've been working on. Our garden bench and the two chairs linked with a table in the middle were in need of a lick of stain and thanks to Sam [Hettie] giving us the heads up on the colour she did hers with I have now done the bench.....still needs another coat and haven't started on the other yet.
Isn't it fab.....it makes me smile every time I look at it and will really make our new back garden look lovely when they are both finished.
The other pic I'm sharing with you this week is this one of a flock of starlings on our front lawn. I'm not sure you will be able to see but the majority of the birds are babies and the adults had brought them down to feed on the ?ants in the lawn.
It was something like the film 'The Birds' at the time but to see so many weaning fledglings at once really made us smile.
There you go. That's it from me for today. I hope you have enjoyed my smiles and will link yours up below.
