WOYWW - Week 184

Hello WOYWWers and Fellow Bloggers

Julia will be pleased with me because I am keeping short and sweet!  Julia is our wonderful hostess at What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday and if you want to join in then pop over and let Julia tell you how to do it.

I have not done any crafting for the last two days because I have been busy wrapping all the Christmas presents - how did I come to buy so much?  This is a very small selection which I am packing up into various bags and boxes........


Have also tried my hand at knitting some fingerless mits, with one of the dozens of unused balls of yarn/wool that I have.  Not sure I like this design but it took me ages so I am going to knit a mate for it.


I got happy mail this last week too, which cheered me up no end -  from some wonderful WOYWWers, Eels, Sandee and also May, thank you ladies for your brilliant cards/tags, I will photograph them and put them on my blog soon. 

Hope you are getting on well with your Christmas preparations, we always put our tree up late so that is next on the list as well as doing Tim's tags for December.  I have an appointment this morning but I will try to visit as many of you as possible.  Happy WOYWW,  Hugs, Anne x

  12. Happy WOYWW. Gorgeous wrapping. We put our tree up late too. In our family it was always put up on Xmas Eve, and I like to make the actual day feel more special, rather than get bored of the decorations by then. I expect I will get it all sorted on Saturday 22nd this year. Ali x #20

  15. Your presents are looking great... I'm in denial about the whole thing - one present ordered so far, and that's it! We're late tree putter-uppers too - not even bought it yet - aagh... Hope you have a lovely WOYWW! (No time to play today, sadly.)

  18. Wrapping pressies is on my to-do list- should be amusing doing that with just my left hand! May have to get my nose involved to hold stuff down while I apply tape,:)Our tree is not up yet either.Have a great week,hugs, Shaz #67

  22. your desk looks fabulous Anne - almost as fabulous as the wonderful Christmas card that just arrived on my mat - stunning to say the least - I must get hold of that stamp - I've been seeing so many gorgeous versions of it - none as good as yours though!!!! Happy Christmas to you - your card goes in the box today - now I've located your address!!! Der!!!!

  23. Scrummy pressies there and I love fingerless mitts wear them all the time. Thanks for visiting me today, it is all I can do to keep up with replies let alone visit anyone else. Not got much done either. DS home today but much better thanks. BJ#36

  24. I was late getting my Christmas decorations up to, but everything was just so complicated this year, lol But they are done, and now I need to catch up on TH tag and a few challenges, whew...busy, busy, busy! Loved the one glove..you could always pretend to be Michael Jackson ;) lol waving the #92 from the hills of North Carolina :)

  25. Your fingerless mitt is great!!! I can't knit unless it is on a loom so I am impressed!

    Happy Wednesday,

  26. Most impressed you have started your wrapping up, I haven't even got all my presents! The mit looks brilliant, very useful they are too. You have been busy Anne, well done! xx

  27. I think your fingerless glove is perfect! It's nice to find projects that use up the bits of yarn. No waste!

    I haven't been crafting much at all the last couple of weeks. Just been knitting on my baby blanket in the evenings. Really need to make some Christmas cards..... before I run out of time.

    Happy WOYWW
    Hugs,

  29. Anne those are beautifully wrapped gifts, try as I might I can't make out which one has my name on, lol!! Love the little mitt, you'll have to persevere, what use is one! It's like having just one sock! I was thinking of fingerless mitts as my hands get cold at work (I'm close to a window), but I type a lot so need the fingers to be available.

    Hugs

  30. Hi Anne, not much blogging going on at this house at the moment since the appearance of Miss Kikki and Christmas preparations.
    Lovely to see you getting on with yours and thank you for the beautiful card and words.
    Roll on 2013 when we get together again.

  31. Just took delivery of a present I bought for someone but cannot remember who!! Also int he top of my wardrobe there are endless gifts bought but again I cannot remember whoa for. Perhaps I should get worried!

    You stay well and happy. Nice to have you back with us again.

    Hugs, Neet 2 xx

  33. Your wrapping is as awesome as your crafting, Annie! And kudos for the cool job knitting! I didn't play at WOYWW today 'cause I'm so far behind and then what did I do? I stepped in to help with an emergency at the office. Where, or where did I put that "NO" button?!! Ah well, it will all be okay, somehow! Love ya, Darnell

  35. A change of pace is good for us all Anne. There has been no Christmas decorating here yet but Sunday just might be the day - I am going to use the KISS principal I think as Super Star and I are both a bit flat - intensly worried about our son right now so some of it feels superfluous.
    Love your mittens!
    Hugs to you

  36. Oh your parcels look lovely with all there bows on.. I so leave wrapping to the last minute but this year I have managed to put a few wrapped under the tree already.. They are not as lovely wrapped as your ones though.. hmm might tie some ribbon on some and tizzy them up a bit yet..
    I think your mitten looks lovely and warm..
    I am still working on the exploding box..
    Thanks for the lovely comment.
    Merry Christmas

  39. Hello Anne! I finally made it here from WOYWW! I'm #111 this week, so I thought I would visit all those whose number ends in "1" - Pleased to meet you!

    That's a beautifully wrapped present, sitting on your desk. I like the ribbon - very pretty!
    I haven't really started wrapping gifts yet... must get round to it sometime... (!)

    Happy Christmas!

  40. A beautiful array of gifts Anne, you are so much more organised than me :D! Love your fingerless mit, actually I like the rustic look of the design and it's a great way to use up the spare yarn.

    Glad you got some happy mail, look forward to seeing your photo's later.
