What's on my workdesk this week


It's 7.40pm Tuesday and I am hiding in my 
workroom as the storm outside is horibble.


So before I start to clear away the debris of 
last weekend's foraging here's a peep at the fabric
bundle I picked up at Beyond Measure, Todmorden.


To further distract me from the thunder and lightening 
and lashing rain I am admiring these inspirational pieces 
by Vicky Trainor at The Linen Garden


When all else fails, I'll batten down the hatches and 
snuggle up with a good book


Can't believe less than two hours ago I was out in the garden.

  5. We had an afternoon of awful thunder with torrential rain yesterday and I really don't like it much at all....of course I had my little furry distraction and that helped a lot. [She sends you a hug]. I love your latest purchases Lynn.
    Have a great week.
    Hugs,

  6. Is that you wearing the WOYWW badge in the last photograph, looks like you to me.
    Love all your photos that you posted to distract you from the storm, did you have the electric go off for a few seconds and then return`? Scared me silly,
    Hugs, Neet 22 xx

  7. Hi Lynn, here in Redditch we seem to always just get the edge of storms, I think because we have the Malverns pulling them one way, and the Lickeys the other. Hope yours has passed now. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #9 xxx

  9. We spent all summer hoping for rain. We finally stopped watering our newly planted trees and have had rain and storms at least once a week. I love a good rainy day, but not stormy. Then I don't feel guilty about crafting, even though there is inside house work to do. Happy Wednesday. LisaDV #37

  11. Remember that horrendous storm when you and Philip paid us a visit earlier in the Summer? Yesterday's was quite dramatic but didn't last long. It was quite nippy going round the boot sale this morning but it's gradually warming up now. Talk about a North South divide!
    Looking lovely in the garden and liking the look of your latest acquisitions, too. xxx

  14. Hi Lynn. Here in North wales we had torrential rain late lunchtime, but no Thunder and lightening. But there again, I was being treated to lunch out, so may have been too interested in the yummy food to have noticed...
    Great finds on your desk today.
    Take care. God bless.

  19. We have been very lucky in Belgium lately, as we're having wonderful Indian summer days. Snuggling up with a good book is the best remedy when the weather is stormy. I'm loving your dress! Please think of me when you're done with it ;-) xxx
