It's a very,very cold Wednesday from here in the West Midlands. The scene is beautiful with a very, very hard frost making everything look magical but it was good to get back indoors today.

If you don't know what WOYWW is then pop along here to the lovely Julia's blog  Stamping Ground and join in with the fun.

I had a lot of cards and a Christening present to finish last week and I cannot believe that I forgot to photograph both Christening present and the card. Think I also said I was starting on some other projects - still nothing to show yet as what with family at the weekend, and then the Christening followed by my Mum staying with us this week I have not had much time for crafting. Have had a great time though with my family and the Christening was so lovely. It was good to catch up with family as well.

So to my, yet again uninteresting desk and table.

Actual desk not really changed sorry.

Below the card I am making for my Mum who will be 84 on Friday.

My dining table - I did a little sewing but not anything interesting - alterations !!!

And to the right my old but trusty machine.

Happy WOYWW and I will be popping around to say hello later.

Below one of the cards I made last week. Based on one designed by Mandy at the class I go to .

I went to class a couple of weeks and the cards below were designed by Mandy and then made ( not well ) by me. I messed up stamping Thanks so much.

Well that's all for now folks- not terribly interesting this week. I was going to put some photos of Christening on but mine didn't turn out too well so waiting for my son and brother to send me some of theirs. Anne x
