WOYWW - Week 185

Hello Everyone

Another week has flown by.   Hope you are all ready for the festivities ahead and looking forward to a wonderful break.

It is that time of week when we share our desks with a whole world of crafters, courtesy of our wonderful Hostess Julia, who can be found HERE.  If you want to join in then please visit Julia who will give you full details.

Not a great deal on my desk this week as I am out all day today visiting and looking after Grandchildren (but I will catch up with WOYWWers over the next day or so), just some more knitting.  Another fingerless glove waiting to be sown up and for  me to knit a mate.

Also on my desk, from left to right is a box that I have altered with crackle paint, a gift bag that I made which is ready to be filled for Christmas, a new stamp which was a swap gift by fellow WOYWWer Sandy and then just my usual crafty stuff.

I would like to show some of the cards that I have received, in the main from lovely crafters I have had the pleasure to meet through WOYWW. 

I am not naming the senders (and yes I have duplicated one) but aren't they all beautiful?  Apologies for the arrangement but I cannot get used to using this laptop, the photo system is different to my PC, which did come back, allegedly repaired but was not and it has had to go back to the PC hospital and I am unlikely to get it back before the new year!

My heartfelt sympathies to all those affected by the recent tragic events in Newtown, USA.

That's it from me this week.  If you do visit I hope you will leave me a message, I always do my best to return the compliment.  Hope you have a wonderful Christmas.   Hugs, Anne xx


  1. Hey I'm the first to comment as far as I can see...but then I'm here in Canada and it's only Tuesday still! ;D
    I have missed visiting the WOYWW gang lately with all my travelling and I've missed the everyone. But I'm going to try and make up for it.
    As usual you have beautiful work to show Anne. The cards are so intricate and pretty. You are sure to bring many smiles to a lot of lucky people.
    I wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas. Enjoy xoxo

  2. Hi Annie, I don't see the WOYWW linkup yet here, but you're here, so I came to visit. Seeing the knitting makes me think the fingers are working well and that makes me happy! You have received lots of holiday love in those beautiful cards - thanks for sharing!! Enjoy those grands!!

  10. I'm sorry Anne I did indeed laugh out loud as I looked at your photo before I read what it was. It is definitely right in there in the silly season. Another confess - I have never knitted a glove or sock in my life - bit superflous really in our tropical climate!

  18. I envy the knitting - I've been taught four times but it just doesn't go in!
    Merry Christmas to you and yours

  19. Hi Anne - your desk looks fab as usual - altho I did wonder what the fingerless glove was for a while!!! Lol! Great cards you've got there! Big Hugs to you! Rachel - p.s. when cutting that tree I use my grand Calibur - and I put it through three times at various angles - then emboss and it is much easier to get out then! xx

  20. I did snort at BJ's comment. LOL You have some gorgeous cards there from your friends. Happy Wednesday and Happy Christmas, too. :o)

  22. I'm back again...forgot to say about your comments on my blog about us having the same stamps and 'tastes' - such a shame we don't live close by, I think we'd have some fun sharing crafting time! Hugs, Carole Z X

  23. Hello Anne, the cards from friends are gorgeous. Wishing you and yours much happiness throughout the festive period, happy holidays. Elizabeth x #46

  24. Thank you Anne for your beautiful card - really thoughtful of you and a stunner. I like the colour you're using for the gloves, of the few crafts I can do, knitting escapes me, I really should apply myself! Lovely batch of cards, so nice to be amongst friends on the big old web!

  25. Aren't we lucky to have been on the receiving end of so much kindness?? I got some lovely cards as well.
    Sending hugs and love for a Happy Christmas!

  26. Hi there Anne, thanks for your visit, I got caught up yesterday & didn't have any more time to visit desks.
    I'm loving the crackle paint box and gift bag. The knitting makes me feel hot as it is of course summer here and we're sweltering - very humid which is the killer - even with air con on.
    So, happy festive season to all and happy woyww.
    Cheerio from

  27. Beautiful Cards you recieved and those gloves look warm have a Merry Christmas hugs Nikki #5

  28. So you knit too - I should have know it. You guys across the pond are so very mulit-talented!!!!!
    Merry,Merry Christmas Anne!!

  29. Like a few of the others I had a bit of a giggle at the fingerless glove before I knew what it was! Have yourself a Merry Christmas!
    Hugs, Renee #92

  30. Lovely tidy desk Anne, I'm impressed! I hope you have a lovely day with your grandchildren and may I wish you a fabulous Christmas and a very happy and craftfull 2013! Hugs, barb xx

  31. Amazingly tidy desk and I like the fingerless glove. Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a very Happy Christmas. Caro (#65)

  32. Love the gloves, must have a go at this but I'm busy making mug-cosies at present. The thing about PaperArtsy You-tube videos is that I find that half my day has gone by and I've done nothing - will have to ration them.
    Thanks for dropping in yesterday - just catching up now.
    Best wishes for Christmas and for a peaceful New Year.

  37. Had my fingerless gloves yesterday, which my mum knitted, and it reminded me of your blog and now I realise the difference. Mine are thumbless too. Just a small hole for the thumb and a large hole for the 4 fingers. BJ x
