Hello lovely readers and welcome to WOYWW, or What's on my Worktop Wednesday, and for those who have no idea what I am talking about, go over to the wonderful Julia's Stamping ground. 
Talking of Julia, a big WELCOME BACK, we have missed you so much and we are so pleased to have you back. Not that Jan hasn't done a brilliant job as an understudy, but the star is the lady we all want in the starring role

 So to the business of the day.
As we are still on the boat, this was the dining
table yesterday where I was making a couple of cards.  A birthday card for my niece and a wedding anniversary card for my sister.
It was quite dark unfortunately, we spent the whole day moored under trees because it was so warm, which kept the temperature bearable, but meant it was not very light for making cards.

Being on the boat means that I have to clear away my stuff every time we want a meal, and all my stuff is stored in two drawers and I have to get out everything to find what I need, as a result I don't manage to get much done, however I did make a wedding card last week, before we hired a car and drove all the way back to Wales for the wedding.



We are moored near Roydon in Hertfordshire, which is very beautiful, and in spite of the train line being fairly close, the trees muffle the sound of the trains quite well.
We are heading up to Bishop's Stortford on Thursday and then slowly back through London and then working our way north towards Cheshire.

Well that's all from me for now, have a lovely WOYWW day.
I love reading all your comments, and will try to get back to you, internet access on the canals permitting,
Bless you for visiting

Morning Chris - yes - I agree with Helen and BJ - but I found you... We have both posted this morning for the first time in what seems to be ages. Gorgeous card for Helen and new hubby - and a lovely mooring yesterday. It's already cooler here this morning - and we have had thunder, lightening and torrential rain... No guarantee what else we may get!!! Have a great day.
Take care. God bless.

Hey, third time lucky! I'm right behind you on the list. It must be wonderful to live and craft on a narrowboat! Sounds so romantic! Lovely cards to show for it too! Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa #28

Haha, I commented on the wrong link, and didn't look at the date! No wonder it was raining!
Enjoy your holiday!
Have a great week,

Thanks for your visit earlier, I hope to be on a narrow boat soon ... but only celebrating PJ's birthday, yet again!
I love travelling our canals, luckily we have lots of them in and around Birmingham.
Have a good week

That is the most beautiful wedding card I have ever seen, I would not be able to produce that if working in my studio, never mind a boat. Very envious of your time on the boat - what type of boat is it? have a blessed day donna #41

What a gorgeous wedding card! I hope the drive to Wales and the day was a lovely one. Your pics of the canal are lovely, I'm so sorry that I had to put the kibosh on our plans to meet up a few weeks ago.
Hugs, LLJ 11 xx

I hope you're having a lovely time, and I'm quite jealous of the London route, I believe it's lovely. Great that you manage any card making while you're away, specially as you're so good as to clear away and start again each time!
