WOYWW 474

Hi desk surfers, I am determined to get a post up today, and will do my utmost to visit as many desks as our limited WiFi allows! Yes we've been in the house 8 weeks now and BT/OpenReach are still not able to get their act together to get us a phone line and Broadband, despite the fact that there is a telegraph poles on our land by our back gate and an inspection cover over the fibre conduit, also on our land!
What I do have however, is a craft room, not very organised yet, but this what what it looked like last week














And this is what it look like now. Nearly everything in a drawer or on a shelf, but it definitely lacks organisation!





















There you can almost see some work in progress.  One bag containing handmade toppers, and the other one containing 'almost toppers', ready to make some, sadly urgently needed,  sympathy cards. I seem to have used rather a lot recently! 😢
If you don't understand why I am "baring all" so to speak, visit the amazing Julia at At The Stamping Ground.

That's all for now, Happy WOYWW and thanks for reading my drivel!
Bless you
Chris

It's good to see you are slowly getting moved into your new place. I am sure the craft room will come together quicker than your broadband. You seem to be working harder at your task than they are at their task. It's good to have you back at least. Happy WOYWW from #1.

Morning Chris, your first photograph was always full of promise and it's now good to see you are getting there, it will be a wonderful space to create in.
Happy days!!
Thank you for sharing WOYWW have a super week Tracey #5

When one reaches a certain age sadly more and more of those cards seem to be needed.
On a brighter note I like the look of your newly furnished craft room and am so glad you and Adrian are settled at last. I wish you many many happy years living in your new home.
God Bless, Neet 6 x (and thank you for the visit earlier)

It seems to be coming together pretty well from this view point Chris! there are so many different priorities in a new place aren’t there. Am horrified and saddened about BT, (any company that does this really), they are millions of miles from their advertised standards aren’t they. So frustrating.

Christine said...

Work, work, work..... but it looks like the end is in sight! I moved into my room last year, (or was it the year before?) but it's still not completely sorted. You will soon be crafting away like a good 'un.
Keep up the good work and it's soooo nice to see you back woywwing!

That looks like a fab craft room! Oh no, sympathy cards are so hard I find, as sometimes there aren't words.
Have a good week!

Marit said...

You are doing what I did last April - unpacking and re-storing the craftroom after the move...your photos speak to me and look familiar! Good luck on 'setteling' (we still are not completely settled...) Happy woyww and a big hug from Holland! Marit #22

Morning Chris. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's so brilliant. I realise it isn't finished yet - it's a WIP - but you are on your way. yes - rather a lot of sympathy cards at the moment. Phonecall from Ruth last night to say Pete's aunt had also died at the weekend! It was vaguely expected as she had been ill for so long.
I'm so glad you are getting your room sorted - now... when shall I pop over???
Take care. God bless.

Hi Chris, good to see the craft room coming together. Hope BT get a move on for you, how annoying. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #2 XxX

Hazel said...

Good that your craft room is taking shape - lots of lovely things there. Shame that BT haven't got their act together yet - hope they do so soon. Thanks for sharing - Hazel WOYWW #15 x

Hi Chris, I can't believe BT. We've been with cable since it started but not sure what you have round there. BT really don't deserve to get any business, that is pretty poor. However, I hope you are enjoying the lovely weather and it's nice to see you getting your craft room sorted. Have you found any of the Lincoln Ninjas art bits scattered around? They are being left in the parks, by the shopping centres, cathedral, all over really. Have a great woyww, Angela x10x

Caro said...

The craft room is definitely coming together. We are with BT and had similar issues... total nightmare. Hope it all gets sorted soon. Thanks for sharing. Caro x (#38)

Hello Chris. Good to see you post and pleased the room is getting sorted. Sad re all the Sympathy cards.
We've had issues with BT re resiting a cable - it was put in a ridiculous place , have been waiting ages for decision :-( Thanks for visiting. Anne x #11

Hi Chris, sorry to hear BT haven't managed to get you connected properly yet! Your craft room is coming along nicely. Mine is a guest room / craft room / ironing room and I've moved it around 3 times before I've settled on how it is now. Thanks for stopping by earlier, I'm hoping not to increase what I have too much - or am I just being naive lol. Surely I have everything I need now I've been crafting nearly 3 years?? Have a lovely week Heather x #9

Angela Radford said...

Hi Chris, we spoke to the Virgin Media Cable man this morning and he said it might be worth you contacting them as he seemed pretty sure there wouldn't be a problem for them to fit you up with your phone line and Broadband. I might say we've been with cable since it was diamond cable and they've all been really good. Hope you get sorted soon xXx

Dorlene Durham said...

Wow, it looks great. Organizing makes it so nice but can also be hard to find where you put things. LOL. Have a great week. Dorlene #40

Kelly said...

One step at a time, Mrs. D! Your space will be just how you want it 'soon'. I say that loosely as I'm still trying to get mine 'just so' almost 3 years later :-) Good luck on broadband soon. Creative Blessings! Kelly #29
