WOYWW - Week 193

Hello Fellow WOYWWers and Bloggers

This is the time of week we share our work spaces with Woywwers and Bloggers around the globe.  If you want to join in then go over and see our Hostess, Julia, who will give you all the details.

Julia likes us to keep it short and mine is very short this week, because the Builders are in, they are using drills and diggers to dig up the foundations today and we are out of here for the day!  I will catch up with as many of you as possible later today and this evening.


No new work on my desk today, but tomorrow I am doing a little workshop with Woywwer Lynn (Doodly Birds) and two other friends.  We will be doing a version of my pin cushion that you see on my desk.  That is what the spools in the background are for, together with all the lace at the front.  I hope we have time to make some gift bags too, using the papers at the front  and also the flowers, ribbon and lace in the box.
A sample of what we will do is just behind the lace box.  Right at the back you might be able to see my new Tim Holtz Distress Paints which arrived today but I have not had the chance to play with.

I bought some of the lace at the Event City craft event in Manchester last week, where I went with my lovely friend and fellow Woywwer Mo of Almo Crafts.  We met up with Lynn, Susan and Ruth and also with Ann B and Jo of Jozart (both Woywwers).  It was lovely to meet up with all these lovely ladies and chat about crafty things. Sadly, I missed meeting up with a blog friend Rachel, neither of us realised there were two cafes, she was in one and we were in the other........apologies Rachel.

So that's it from me, will do my best to visit you later on.  Have a good WOYWW everyone.  Hugs, Anne x

  9. looks like you'll have a super day crafting all those lovelies with Lynn and Co. It really was super to meet up last week, even though it was fleeting and I wish I could have stayed long enough for that coffee time but I know we'll meet again one day.
    hope your builders get done quickly and you can get back to normality. I loath such invasions!

  15. Oh, I have so much envy at you making that pin cushion. It is absolutely beautiful. Are you going to share how to do it?
    So nice for you to meet up with so any friends at Event City and glad that you enjoyed the show. Pity I didn't know before I went away but I had four complimentary tickets awaiting me on my return from America - sadly on Friday.
    Happy WOYWW and thanks for visiting me.
    Hugs, Neet (who went back to bed, hence being late commenting) xx

  20. Have fun at the workshop...the pincushions look great. It would be neat to make one just for card pins!

    I love how you have all the bits and bobs coralled on that tray...my square glass joare are from the dollar store. I am nearly through the process of unrolling the ribbon and ironing it and hanging on ribbon tags.

    The glass jars will then hold lace, fancy rolled flower ribbons, twine and the zillion flowers I am trying to use up! I need to make a zillion flower cards. teehee

  32. I can't wait to see the flowers and stuff you make with that lovely lace. I have never tried using lace, now I am intrigued. Would any lace work? (I love your pin cushion!)

  43. Hello again, Anne.
    Love the pin cushion. It's very pretty and I find them so useful too. Your desk photo makes it look like a cubby at the back. One could creep in there to read a book if one was called Alice. :-)
