Tea dance card (scrollswork no 4 & three muses challenges)

Used some of my new scrollswork stamps this afternoon to make a little has the lovely quote of may you dance lightly through life..anyone remember afternoon tea dances. I have never been to one but loved the tea dance scene in the film Scent of a Woman.

This morning I dyed some more fabric with my friend Pat..we have got quite good at it now as we were really hesitant at first. Here is a photo of some of the fabric we dyed last week...arent the colours wonderful.

In the UK we are having our typical spring weather which means rain and yet more is a photo of my new bistro table and chairs that I was going to use all this week to drink my morning coffee whilst watching the birds feed on the huge pile of bread we leave out for them but typical it has rained and rained since last weekend....but at least the narcissi and muscari are blooming

Lorraine, it's a always a joy to visit your blog. I love your dainty and exquisite "tea dance" designed for our challenge. As I opened your profile page I spied the link to your sons' blog and that was a very pleasant surprise. How wonderful that they have their own blog and are following (closely) in the footsteps of Mum.
I love your tie-dyed fabric. Thanks so much for being part of our challenge.
