Emboidery and WOYWW

 I have been embroidering a couple of small panels for card toppers and I'm at the bead sewing stage now, hence the fluffy bead mat on my desk.  I also purchased a couple of skeins of embroidery thread to match some linen I already had - I was very pleased with the colour match considering it was mainly guess work as I purchased it online!  I am feeling the need to move away from neutral colours for a while!

Before mowing the lawn I took the opportunity to pick a few of these pretty weeds that have been springing up all over it -I used them for embroidery inspiration on one of the above panels. 

My last ATC of the swap arrived from Susan in Australia - it's gorgeous and features a string pull background, which is defintiely on my 'to try' list - and a lovely little envelope with it too.  I would have posted about it last week but I thought Thursday was Wednesday!

Embroidered Needlecase and WOYWW

 It's been too hot to work up in my craft room this week, but it's been the perfect weather to sit and sew in a shady spot of the garden - so to be productive I've made myself a needlecase for my beading and tapestry needles!  

This happy mail arrived yesterday from Julia - what a gorgeous ATC and card and such a delight to receive - thank you so much Julia.

WOYWW and ATC Swap

 My desk has seen no activity this week, it's been a time for getting out the summer clothes, cleaning out and sorting the wardrobes and tackling the garden.
The sunshine has been so uplifting and it's been wonderful to slowly see the garden turning into a place we can sit and relax without looking at weeds and overgrown hedges that need dealing with!
Sitting on my desk is the most delightful ATC sent by Sylvia and it arrived in perfect time for me to have something to show today!  It's beautiful and I'm so enjoying the happy mail!
