WOYWW #142

Happy Ash Wednesday WOYWW
I'll stick my picture up first before I waffle on
On my table today we have the Stampin' Up brochures, a note book and pen, Mollie Makes magazine and a letter from my son's school.
In 49 minutes a SU demonstrator is coming to see me as I'm thinking of buying something! The note book was hand sewn by me after seeing a simple tutorial in  the Mollie Makes blog, I love,love,love this magazine and was getting a little concerned this month as my mag was late. This month there is a Babushka doll keyring kit to sew, I may have a go at that!
The letter from the school is an application form to do the bronze Duke of Edinburgh award so that will be completed today as we are very keen for George to do the awards.
Not much on there today but later I will be making some cards using some stamps I borrowed from a lady I met on FB and I really should return them to her! She also wants to see the SU brochure so I'll take her that.
Yesterday I had a message from a friend asking if I would make a cake for his wife's birthday. He'd seen the picture of the cake I made on Sunday and suddenly thought it would be a good idea to get one for his wife.
I also finally managed to take a few snaps for my photography course and I'll just post one which is for the asymmetry task.
I bought this coffee pot and 4 coffee cans about 25 years ago from a PDSA shop for £5. Gradually over the years, with the help of Ebay and my godmother, I have built up a small collection of this service. I absolutely adore it and if anyone has any, or sees any, I will bite your arm off to buy it from you!
I'll leave you with a rose today. Thanks for stopping by and I have to go because she's due in 40 minutes now!

Whoops, in my haste I almost forgot to link in Julia's blog, hop over and see what's on everyone's desks today
