WOYWW ....yes it is really Week 16

Where has yet another week gone? ... and yes ... not only is it week 16 of this brilliant Brain Child of JD but Summer is officially over ...not that we really had one up here in 'Bonny' Scotland. I'm not sure whether the dates even apply up here (lol) as the trees are showing little evidence of shedding leaves ... in fact they are all rich and green and we tend to be behind England any way, by a week or two.

Well ... I set myself a challenge last week ...to have a group of LO's completed by today ... but I sort of failed. I went for 6 LO's ...again all heritage but I was way laid by actually making the hand made bread I didn't make last week...sorry no photo, as it was eaten so quickly... I think it took almost as long to make, with all the resting and rising, as it did to devour. I have been instructed to make more ... but this time LOTS more.
My other distraction was FH ....mine and that of my friends. I spent a whole day sorting out hers and then explaining where we actually were. All her ancestors have the same first names so it gets confusing. I have now sent her off to pick the brains of her mother, so we will see what else she can unearth.

When I said I failed, I actually did manage to finish 1 and I have nearly finished another 3 ... the other two are only at the 'paper chosen' stage and even then I'm not sure about my choice ... I was trying to use only Wild Asparagus. I shall finish the first 4 and post them as soon as possible. I will also post them on G the P ...with background and some stories that go with them.

Back to the whole purpose of this post ... WOYW ...so
here are my photo's..........


You may have noticed the 'wall' stamp ...its Magnolia ... and the LO's in progress ... in the bags and on the mat ... that's why I took 2 shots ...to prove I'm well on the way lol.

I shall close now.
Take care xx


This would have been posted this morning but I couldn't get my photos to load ...a box had become un ticked!

We just had the first day of Fall and it is 80 degrees and HOT...YUCK....I want the cooler temps back....On my last post you asked me about the Cashew Chicken....it is a Chinese Dish and so tasty...the sauce is a brown sauce that is somewhat spicy with chicken sliced very thin and some veggies...I just love it with rice....and to use my chopsticks!!!! Wishing you a wonderful week....sweet friend...filled with smiles!!! :)

Wow so much going on :D Can't wait to see your FH pages. I can't believe how much you accomplish and then say you've failed. I would be having a well deserved rest and feeling smug if I were you Angie :D


p.s I am in danger of becoming as big a fabric horder as I am of paper so can see what you mean about fabric shops - so far I've just been naughty online. Can you imagine if we went together? We'd probably be thrown out for laying on the floor making fabric angels LOL!
