MEET ME ON THE CORNER WHEN THE LIGHTS ARE COMING ON
AND I'LL BE THERE, I PROMISE I'LL BE THERE..
First things first...The Bunting Winners! Names were drawn randomly by Mr LLJ....
Traditional: Vonny and Eliza (I made a second string!)
Scandinavian: Maisie Moonshine
Please will you email me your snail mail addresses ladies - I'll get the bunting off to you forthwith :-)
Rightio Ho, the desk.....
I've laid out a load of fat quarters and scraps from my stash in order to put them into colour groups. I'm going to make some patchwork squares to send to Wipso. They will be sent on to be made up into quilts to be sold for charity. See Wipso's blog for more info. I'll start on another quilt for LillyBo as well as I haven't made one for a while.
Fat quarters old and new!
Softer tones...more contrast needed, I think.
A huge box of cards turned up from Lisa (Craft Garden). Thank you so much, Lisa - they will be put to good use and are much appreciated xxxx
I haven't actually done that much crafting this week. Mr LLJ took a few days off and so, as well as doing some boring house stuff, we took the opportunity to go out. We took our younger son G3 to Winchester...
The Grape Vine tunnel in Queen Eleanor's Garden outside the Great Hall...
And inside where there is King Arthur's Round Table hanging on the wall (a much later pretend one unfortunately!) and an art installation that read Look The Other Way, because you had to read it from right to left. I rather liked it!
Then we met our eldest son, The Big O, in Bath...
Well, I couldn't not stop at this lovely window, could I??
Or this...those meringues were about 9" across...made my teeth ache just looking at them (which IS all we did!)
Here's a variation on a doll's house..an elven tree house. It stood about 5 feet tall and was a masterpiece of little details. Isn't it beautiful?
This also caught our attention! We particularly liked the jaunty rope accessory! It must have been there for some time as there was a slew of parking tickets on the front windscreen!!
The Gates of Mordor!! Lol....more like a lock gate on the Bath section of the Kennet and Avon canal. There was a whole ecosystem growing quite happily in the musky, moist atmosphere...
Aha, I thought, as we walked up the street...THAT shop looks interesting....
It was! Some trendy clothes emporium, whose name completely passed me by as I was too interested in the wonderful old machines!
I'd never heard of this manufacturer before..but I won't forget it now, that's for sure!!!
I do so adore wacky objects ;-) See you next week!!
