Well Good Morning all you Woywwers and anyone else who arrived here by whatever means. And if that's you and you have arrived here by space ship or submarine, or on horseback, if you click on the name of the wonderful Julia you will be enlightened about what on earth I am wittering about.
For those who have visited last week, this is the elusive picture that refused to appear on my blog then, the Llangollen canal in wonderful sunshine.

Today we are back home and my worktop looks like this. Nearly all the UFOs from last week have become FOs or finished objects, thanks to a few well placed comments from you lot.
Only one has been consigned to history, but not until I had removed the topper. One was finished but escaped the picture and one is still waiting for more to happen but I know what I am going to do with it, just didn't have time to do it.
And because we are supposed to be showing our wrktops and not just a select part of it, this is the long view, with assorted clutter and at the far end my ironing pile, which will take me stop me doing any crafting for a while.
So I'm off to do some snooping, cos I didn't get much chance last week, and then I might tackle some ironing or housework or any of the other jobs that are necessary when one returns from a holiday.
Thanks for visiting and your lovely comments,
Bless you all

Fortunately my ironing [and there is plenty of it!] is locked away safely in another room! I wouldn't want that glaring at me while I'm creating and blog hopping!

Well done on the FOs! Always so satisfying!

Fabulous picture of the Llangollen canal, Chris - sorry you didn't make it to the town - maybe a trip down there in the not too distant future would be good - not far in the car, and - erm - much quicker than in the boat....(oops, sorry!!)
Great finished cards - well done.
See you soon.

What a gorgeous sunny ccanal photo. Really looks like spring is on its way! Beautiful cards too and envious of all the space you have to spreadt out in.

Popping over from WOYWW. Thanks for sharing. Have a fabulous weekend.

What a beautiful set of cards, Chris. Lots of variety and just the right amount of bling and sparkle! Gorgeous. I love your canal photo with the beautiful perspective and the mirror surface of the water. It's lovely.

Thanks for your visit and your nice comment - I don't think I've ever had a kitty who was not interested in people food - I have got into the habit of never leaving anything out even if I'm only leaving the room for a minute - they even pinch stuff when my back is turned! Anyone would think we never fed them...

Have fun with the Tyvek! Look forward to seeing the results.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #12

A great collection of cards on your desk and an iron! Hope that's for crafting as ironing, along with all other housework, is not allowed on Wednesdays. You are lucky to have a boat. Always wanted a go on one but bought a campervan instead. We were at Chirk caravan site last spring and walked a bit of the cabal, beautiful.

Well, it only takes one photo to sell a holiday, and I think this is it for me!! Gorgeous sight of sunshine and water . So glad you've had some time on your UFOs, don't they all look fab. And just so you ironing pile is bigger than yours......

What a fabulous photo, and all those beautiful, finished cards. I hope the rest of your week goes as well - and maybe the ironing fairy will visit you (after she's been to me!! LOL) Chris # 35

I find reflections of the sky in water fascinating. I am always taking pictures of the ponds around our house. Love the poppy card. I think poppies are one of my favorite flowers. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. April #20
