This is not work avoidance!

Honestly it's not! Somewhere out there, one of our bloggy friends needs a little eye candy in her life right now. When I walked into the workroom this morning there were rainbows amongst the threads on the carpet and I thought of her.
You see! I am in the right room! My table is looking industrious. Who said I had to work to my deadlines in an orderly manner?! Of course I'm all over the place and not working on what I am supposed to be working on but I am working! See?
The sun is shining and the week ahead promises to be fair and I am in the mood for buns and ice creams!
So I had a play taking pretty pictures of them for our friend. Buns on Poole Twintone!
Oh and look! Utility china! I know where this picture is headed! My new little Flickr group is slowly growing! If you add anything be sure to tag it with the china manufacturer!
I've been taking pictures of backstamps too today. Well, I had the china out so...
This one is headed to the group too! Mmmm. Yummy colours! Thrifty Mrs described them beautifully: "they have 'lick me I taste like sherbert' stamped through them". I just love that. I think of it everytime I look at my collection!
And whilst we're on the subject of Eye Candy I have a new addition to my fave blogs to share with you! Every time I visit Aneela over at Comfort Stitching I am astounded by the quantity and beauty of her work! Every time I visit I resolve to be more productive and every time I wallow happily in the fabrics and colours and technical wonders that I find there!
So Aneela! This is for you! Thank-you!
The very important rules of this award are that you don't have to mention it nor display it on your blog. Nor do you have to link back to me, but if you would like to, that's fine. You don't have to pass it on to anyone but if you know others who deserve it, then go ahead and share the fun! Most of all enjoy the moment! It is richly deserved!
Now ..... oops ..... nearly time for the school run! Another day gone! t.x

Hello...I am blueberryplains...you recently popped into my blog and I wanted to say thank you! I absolutely LOVE your blog! The colors alone are so enticing and your work is so beautiful! I love the little doggies you create and the owls. I would love to learn how to do that! I am truly amazed every day by the talented women on these blogs. I wonder how you found me? Boy...when I scrolled down and saw that Scrummy Eye Candy award, all I could think about was my recent post you commented on! How cool. I really love how you mentioned that people do NOT have to link back or display or mention the award...that's nice...a lot of folks don't like to do that. Anyway...I am adding you to my favorites to go to. Thanks again for stopping by!:)

Lovely photos.... will try to get along to the fair at Blakeney since it's just up the road from me. Looking forward to it, though I fear my husband will be best left at home and I need to wear a jacket with capacious pockets in which to smuggle small items home!
