WOYWW 332 - Hot tea, fabric and paper

So there I was...watching "Ladies of London" which is kind of like a Real Housewives London version and I had the biggest craving for hot tea with milk and sugar! Annabelle was drinking some with her granny, and so I paused my program and made a big mug. It was soooo good. Reminded me of my childhood.

I love the Ladies of London.

I also love What's-On-Your-Workdesk-Wednesday...the best desk party on the planet.

Anyhoo, I've been busy trying to get my paper scraps and stickers organized. I kind of blogged about that on Monday. After getting them sorted and put away in the accordion file, my desk is suddenly clean for a minute!

And I'm still stitching on Midori travelers notebooks, and getting some heart and flower diecuts done. I'm looking at my Mary Engelbreit fabric and Santa fabric to decide how many I can get out of what I have!
Still crazy about my matryoshka dolldori!

Hope you're having fun with your paper and fabrics.

Eat, Write, Dream, Stitch


  1. Lol!! You crack me up, watching all these British TV shows :-) And that fact that one made you want hot, sweet, milky tea was even funnier - I hope you enjoyed it!
    Your desk is very colourful today...I love the Russian doll fabric so much, it's very you! You've done well with the Midori books, they look amazing. I wish I could be organised but just ain't gonna happen, lol!!
    Hugs, LLJ 10 xxxx

  2. Ohh Sandy that tea is a bit milky. I like mine really dark, good proper Yorkshire tea, lol!!! Love your book covered in Russian Dolls, it all looks very interesting.

  3. I love Barry's tea. It's an Irish brand. It's strong but not bitter, and has a nice "golden" taste! I'm going to go make some now!

  4. Wonderful Christmas fabrics! I'm a big fan of fabrics for someone who can't sew. LOL! You must be the only American to drink tea with milk! I know, I didn't use to until I moved to the UK! Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #36

  5. You aren't the only one still crazy about the Dolldori!! Your tea looks ghastly. Sorry girly, but waaaaay too much milk! And fancy getting a need for it because you're watching some fake Brits on the TV! If you want English housewives, you come over and see me and Jan in action!!

    1. That's what I was thinking! You and Jan are the real ladies of London!!

  6. It looks as if you have some lovely fabric there to work with. The Russian Dolls material looks beautiful. Have a lovely week. Barbx #33

  7. Lol Sandy, getting inspired by old UK TV shows and drinking sweet milky tea lol lol! My favourite tea is Lapsang Souchong (really smoky!) - I do drink it with milk, and I like it weak (but not too much milk) and no sugar. I love tea! I do love that Russian Dolls fabric, and your book covers are stunning.

    Thanks for your lovely comment and your encouraging words. I can't wait for the final treatment on Friday to be over and I can concentrate on getting well again and I have such plans for my new life!! Nice to think of you also being a reluctant card maker lol! Needs must, sometimes. Actually I am quite enjoying this year's card factory, and keep getting more ideas of things I could do. I have lots of plans for next year and hope to concentrate on more serious art.

    Happy WOYWW, and have a hug back! Your prayers are very much appreciated.

  8. hope you enjoyed your cup of tea! you've been very busy, which is very impressive. Helen 5

  9. I have to agree with Julia, these are not real housewives of Britain. I am not a big Tea drinker even though I originated in Yorkshire where everyone drinks good strong Yorkshire Tea. I am a disgrace really as I like mine green and definitely no milk. Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x 26

  10. The Mary Engelbreit fabric is cute, but I can't get past the matroushka (however you spell it!) dollies, that cover is the best!!!

    Happy WOYWW to you, Sandy Leigh!
