WOYWW 230


Well this is going to be short cos I don't have the energy to write a lot, not been 100% today.
Desktop is full of Christmas cards,  a production run, more or less all the same. I knew that if I tried to continue to make lots of different ones. I'd never get 100 done. So I got out the stamps and did several alike and varied the embellishments, so I managed 12 in the time it had taken to do 2 previously.
With luck I will have another go with different colour ink later in the week and get another dozen sorted.
These are the last of the hats too, they have to be in the offices of Innocent drinks  by Thursday so they went in the post today.

If anyone is wondering what I am rambling on about, pop over to Julia's where she will explain it all and you can peek at lots of other worktops.
All for now.

WOYWW 229

Hello All and welcome to my blog. If anyone has just arrived and is wondering what WOYWW is all about, pop over to Julia's and you can see what is on the worktops of over 100 crafters.
It is supposed to our worktop on Wednesday but as most of us write our posts on Tuesday, our pics will be taken on Tuesday. And Tuesday here in North Wales has been grey and dark and I have had to take 20 pics before I got anything useful of my worktop.
So my worktop is full of Christmas cards, I try to make at least 100, some of which will be as simple as the stamped one on the mat, and some will be more elaborate like those on the window sill. What I aim to do with all my cards is to ensure that they reflect my faith and are not just robins and reindeer and snow.


The other thing I have been doing is the hats for the Big Knit and I have done another 13 plus the two green and purple ones that my daughter did.












This clearly is not my worktop but the bedroom window sill so that you can see the autumn colours outside.



And I have taken a bigger pic showing the whole vista from the window. Isn't creation wonderful!
 (Which is more than can be said for Blogger which won't let me do what I want with these pics.)


And as I walked into the bedroom with the camera I just envied the complete relaxation demonstrated by a lazy Max so i thought I would share it with you.




Hope you all have a great day and enjoyed having a peek into my creative life.

WOYWW 228

What's on your worktop Wednesday is an opportunity for crafters to open up their private worktop to the scrutiny of other crafters and it is all hosted by the wonderful Mrs Dunnit.
My worktop
is complete chaos and has been for four days as I was making Christmas cards before I came away.  I am currently over at my daughter's in Doncaster, while hubby is in hospital in Sheffield having lots of tests and checks following his major surgery in June.
So I am having a rest, NOT!
She has just had a new kitchen so I am helping her to put things back. Utterly exhausted both of us.
However in the few minutes break I have been allowed I have managed to get some knitting done.  Just a few hats forthe big knit. This is not all of them but
the first ones I got pictures of..
Well that's all for now or I won't get this on display at Julia's.
Happy WOYWW to you all.

WOYWW 227

Good morning all.
Well for once you really are seeing my worktop on Wednesday.
I woke up and it wasn't until I was in the bathroom that it dawned on me that I hadn't done a WOYWW.
So hasty pic, quick comment, post it and rush out.
So what you are seeing is the mess of now having put everything away from after our holidays and a very quick card for a birthday tomorrow. 
I have a feeling that this is not going to be a beautiful blog page but at least it will be there. 
That's all for now. 
Happy WOYWW

WOYWW 226

Well my worktop today has something a little bit different. This is a blanket for our bed . My daughter made all the squares and then made rather a poor effort of  assembling them so I am now reassembling them.
Unfortunately they are 3 1/2 to 4 inches square so there are an awful lot of them to put together. Those on the table are just a very few of them, there is also a bag full of them and a few more still at home.
If anyone has arrived at this page wondering what WOYWW is all about, just pop of the wonderful Julia's
and find out all about it and have a snoop at other people's workdesks.
 There was also a more familiar thing on my worktop earlier yesterday. Trying to get a card done in a hurry for my brother in law and I had some furry assistance. In the foreground you can see the card I made for my grandson who loves puffins.
Well this is going to be short I have had a very busy few days and exhaustion is rapidly approaching.
Happy Woyww everyone
Chris
