Well I made it to the crop, really wonderful day, meeting such lovely WOYWWers. There was Julia, of course, and Lunch Lady Jan. Also Delores (Cardarian), Annie (Wipso), Anne (Copper Beeches), Elizabeth (Silver Scrapper), Sarah Brennan and her crafty friend Eva, Neet, Christine (Bishops mate) and of course Margaret (Glitter and glue), who organised everything and worked so hard to get things done.

And it wasn't just meeting Deskers that was so great about the crop, it was getting some lovely goodies. ATCs, a fabric tray, with ATC, a tag, a stone "ATC" and a "dumfed" note book. Felt rather guilty that I had nothing to take to share, but thought I could be excused, just this once as I have been somewhat indisposed!
On that subject,  I am making slow progress,  walking with a four footed stick, but not climbing stairs yet. (One additional bonus of coming to the crop was that we stayed at Margaret's house, and she has a fantastic wet room shower, of which I took great advantage, not having had a shower since I left hospital) My shoulder is still very painful and physio to improve function and full range of movement adds to the pain level.
 Now the title of this blog group is What's on your Worktop Wednesday, however, as I am currently limited to using my daughter's dining table for a craft space, and you really wouldn't be interested in seeing breakfast on it on Wednesday morning, I managed to grab a couple of hours crafting Tuesday afternoon, so that is what I as sharing now.
Anticlockwise from the left is the wonderful Tim Holtz Stamping platform,  which has given my stamps a reprieve from the skip, centre front is a card for my sister in law, and next a stamp I got out but then didn't use.
Further round is a pile of paper I took to the crop, on top of which is the only bit of crafting I did on the day, and at the back is my well used guillotine.  Then there is a pink folder with my stamps in and you can just see the box housing my dew drop ink pads.
Well that is all I have to share with you lovely visitors,  and if you are new to this and want to know more, visit the lovely Julia at her Stamping ground.
Have a good day and thank you for visiting me .
Bless you all,

Morning Chris. Wahoo!!! You have a desk - albeit the dining table which is needed every meal time!! It was good to have you stay last weekend - even with this terrible hostess... Fancy meeting up three hours later at the Ponderosa!
Take care. Hope all appointments go well. God bless.

Lunch Lady Jan said...

It was fabulous to meet you (and Adrian!) last weekend - I was amazed at how well you were moving around, given the accident you had. I agree with the bliss of having a lovely hot shower after a long gap! It was wonderful that you made it to the Crop and I'm pleased to see that you managed as little crafting as anyone else!! Lol! Great to see you're crafting at your daughter's, nothing too strenuous. Hope your appts go well, you'll be running the Marathon if your progress continues so well :-D

Yay Chris, lovely to see you back with a desk, however limited. It was great to see you and Adrian again on Saturday and a little more mobile than the previous occasion. Hope the physio sessions go well and that your arm/shoulder recovers soon. Sarah #20

it was wonderful that you got to the crop and I hope you continue to recover, and the physio starts to help soon. Loving your makeshift desk! Helen #1

Glad you enjoyed the crop :o) Great photos & wonderful goodies!

Julia Dunnit said...

Aw, am so glad you enjoyed the day...I suspect that by mid afternoon you were feeling every bruise and ache though. It was such a pleasure to meet you and Adrian, and to check out for ourselves your recovery level! Wishing you continued good progress and patience with it all. Glad to see you have some crafty goodness at your daughter's house, will help pass some quiet time at least.

Glad to see that you were able to go to the crop - sad to hear that you are still in a lot of pain. I hurt my arm a few years ago in a fall, so I know what you must be going through. It was months before I could even drive a car. I hope you heal quickly! That Tim Holtz stamp thingy is on my Christmas list - can't wait to get it! Thanks for sharing, have a great week! Lindart #32

Great to see you blogging again but sorry to hear you're still not better. There are now two houses for sale along the Fosdyke canal with moorings just before it goes into Lincoln city but I should think this might not be where you are hoping to go and after the accident you might have had enough of boats. Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x11x

hi Chris not been around for some time... it sounds like you've not had a good time of it of late and been poorly/accident I hope you are now on the road to recovery.i'm impressed with your temporary craft table albeit small it does the job and is multifunctional...a bonus....I'm waiting in the stamping platform coming ..i recently ordered one stamping is awful, to say the least, I rarely stamp directly onto a card as usually mess it up. well done for getting to the crop sounds like it was quite an achievement have a good weekend and hope you get more carfty time higs andrea#6
