WOYWW.....from rainy Devon!

Well, I'm still on dog sitting duties down in Devon, a rainy dull Devon I might add! I've made the most of the rainy days by visiting a few crafts shops along the way! On my desk you can see a lovely new purchase....... a set of Mini Flip Flops Clear stamps. They are great you get them in a little flip book and you have accents, phrases, frames and borders. Will have a proper play with them soon but I was able to use one of the frames on this page. I have cut out my own flower embellishments for this LO, and I then used silicone glue to make them slightly raised!

Last week I had a go at Shimelle's Try Something Different Challenge on UK scrapper. I enjoy it that much that I thought I would have another go. I just love working with the large photograph. Ive just rotated the design to fit on the landscape photo.

If you are wondering why all the dogs? I volunteer for a dog rescue charity called Bullie SOS we re-home unwanted English Bull Terriers. I organise a monthly walk, which raises funds to cover our vets bills.

Two from one jelly roll quilt.....

Early this week this was a pile of fabric on my work desk, you can read about it here. I've now finished the patchwork pattern which is from a great book called Two From One Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott.  For the non sewing people that read my blog a Jelly Roll is a set of fabric strips normally 2 1/2" wide, rolled and tied into a bundle! My quilting friend, Sarah from Edward and the White Bear blog completed the same pattern last month, look how different it looks, her colours are great. I love how the pattern mingles together with her fabric choice.

I will be off fabric shopping next week to search for the right fabric for the border...any excuse to buy new fabric, hey! Hope you are all having a good bank holiday weekend despite the weather!
