WOYWW, Stash, birthday presents and travels!

Hello my dear bloggy friends!

How are you all? In England everybody had a nice week with lovely sunny weather - including me! Now it seems there is going to be a change - just right as me and my DBF are traveling to Ilfracombe with our MG club! Huh! Anyway let me tell you what I have been up to for the last 2 weeks!
As you all know after coming to England I went straight to Liverpool spending a few days with Jo from Jozart - she was kind to write all about our stay there  and you can read all about here and here. I had a lovely, lovely time and thank you so much Jo and Dave  it was a wonderful birthday for me!!! 
I got some lovely presents which I will show in a minute but first I want to show my "desk", ha, ha honestly today I had a desk on the floor - competition for Helen!!!
I got a load of crafty stuff from Jo and as I don't have a crafty room here in England yet I decided to pack all my stash in bins but I wanted to sort everything so I will know what I have! So it went from the mess bellow....

to everything sorted.....

So that was my "desk work" today!
Next up my lovely birthday presents! Jo made a lovely needle case for me....

She also made me an amazing bag with Tim Holtz material - absolutely love it! Thank you Jo!

 We all met up with Donna from Doings of Doone and she made me a lovely quilt - so artsy!! I keep looking at all the amazing detail! Thank you so much Donna!

So those were my lovely crafty presents! I was given some money (DBF) so I bought some new stash and a bit of clothing! In Liverpool Jo took me to this amazing shop were they sell stuff for "celebrating curves" - very nice!
Oh yes we went to the Faversham classic car show.....here is a photo from that....

And yes I would love to own this one! What a lovely car!!!!

As it is the Chelsea flower show this week it is only appropriate to show some flowers....I am showing peonies from our garden....

And as last! I won't be at the crop but I am meeting up with Julia and LLJan tomorrow and will give them the ATCs for all the girls at the crop! If anyone wants my ATCs but is not attending the crop please let me know and I will send them to you next week! Just leave me a comment! Of course the one that will be my "sparing" partner will also get my ATC. 
So there that is me for now - I better get to bed now as I have been doing so much work today I really need a rest!
Lots of hugs and love to all!


  1. Hope the weather in Devon isn't too bad for your car club trip! Your gifts are beautiful, what talented people Jo and Donna are! I can see I shall have to 'up my game' if I'm to remain Queen of the Floor Crafters, lol!! Helen 8

  2. O kako si bila pridna
    krasen avto in lep cvet

  4. Vidim, da si se imela zelo lepo, dobila čudovita darila in uživala med svojimi znanci. Super!

  5. Phew! I hope Ilfracombe is a good rest for you after all that travelling and excitement. It was wonderful to have you with us and to share your birthday and now we miss you two so much. It just ain't the same fun to be clearing cupboards and packing up for the plumbers!
    Take care and hope to see you soon. There are so many places and sights here that you have not yet seen.
    Love Jo x

  6. Naj ti vreme služi in uživaj še naprej.
    Lepo bodi, Janja

  7. What a wonderful time you seem to have been having - and still are. Sorry about the rain if it is raining other than here in the north.
    Lovely gifts, treasures and memories.
    Belated birthday wishes.

  13. I received one of your ATCs yesterday at the crop and want to say thank you. Love it very much, I chose the tulips as they are special to me, I saw a beautiful picture made with such tiny ones.
    Thank you again
