What's on my workdesk today

I don't know where to start telling you what I've been upto since last week but if you have a look back to yesterdays postings you will get the gist of what a fabulous time I've had and its all led to what's going on today.
I'm decorating my workroom because I've got a lovely new cabinet
and I've moved things around
So I decided to put up my Ruth Zanoni Roskell stitched ladies
and I have drawn frames around some of them.
 You see this one. Ruth sent me this for my 60th birthday last August.
It's me. I love it.
Here's some of the others on my wall of stitched ladies
  Ruth lives in Lancaster and is prolific with her stitching.
 Her work can be found in a local gallery to me Cloud Nine at Bacup Lancashire.
 I did manage to make this little brooch in between 
daubing paint on the walls Banksy style.
Hope you have all as as good a week as me.
Next trip out is Vintage Weekend at York Racecourse.
But first up is some deskhopping over at Mrs D's place


  1. WOW that's some brilliant decorating. BJ was #4, then #16, finally #17 but could end up as #15 if my incorrect links are removed - what am I like!

  2. The stitched ladies look great in their rightful place on your wall! Well done you for making your room look really inviting 💖💖💖

  18. What a fab idea to use the walls for artwork in this way. Love the idea of the frames you have given to your pictures - great and the one of you is a treasure.
    Bacup holds so many memories of happy times when I was a child and went to school there.
    Hugs, Neet xx (thanks for visiting me yesterday - I was out most of the day so just on here now)

  19. I am loving your room - what a fab idea painting directly on to the walls. Your stitched ladies are so lovely and look gorgeous collected around the wall like that - you stylish lady!

  21. Wow Lynn, you've been so busy, the cabinet looks fab and your artwork is beautiful xxx
