Hello WOYWWers!!! Time to play again!!!! If you've not joined us before then pop over to the lovely Julia's Blog ( the boss lady :-) ) and join in.

Well another hectic week since last time - so what's new I hear you shout. Since last Wednesday's WOYWW I spent Wed, Thurs and Friday preparing for the Workshop I did. I did too much and am cutting it down quite severely for next class. Added to that my son and family came on Friday - so had to tidy up a bit and prepare dinner. They left to go to London on Sat morning then I went off to class. Had 13 ladies and was exhausted afterwards. Just dumped everything in dining room. Son and family came back Sunday and we went to youngest son's for cake and coffee. I then had my granddaughter Monday. Took my Aunt to hospital on Tuesday morning  for 8 a.m.) went on to Sugarcraft. Home to look after my GD and her sister after school and am now waiting for a call to say Auntie can be collected after her little op. Managed to make a card, knit a small square using Annie's pattern and finish a shoe made from sugar paste.

So just one view of the muddle that is the dining table where I work. The rest of the room and various surfaces look the same. I love my glass jar covered in tissue paper. My granddaughters did one each for me - so cute.

I did manage a card - as you can see I was a little late with it. 

My knitted square - thank you for the pattern Annie. I am going to make more to make a blanket for Africa. 

My sugar paste shoe! Just need to make a cake for it to go on :-) Photo not too good but I took them last night but was then too tired to do my post ready last night. 

Hope I've not been too long winded Julia. I will visit anyone who visits me, those ending in same number and everyone I follow regularly. Bye for now. x


  1. Hi Anne - phew, I needed a lie down after reading your post - so much going on! LOVE the shoe you made!

    Hugs, Di xx

  2. Wow Anne! Thought I was a busy bee till I read this post!!! Love the shoe. That is sooo clever. Have a good week. x Jo

  3. Loving all the pink Anne! That shoe is so darling. I could see that on Strictly! You sound like you are having a hectic time of it. I know what you mean about teaching card classes - My class always has a job finishing as I don't want them to go home thinking that was too easy! I always have to remind myself of that as I design the projects! Hope you get to put your feet up today. WOYWW Hugs from Helen 74 x

  4. I'm running late with my visits today [well late for me :-) ].
    Have had a busy morning playing with the twins but they are both down for their naps now so I'm having a quick catch up with my friends :-)
    I'm chuckling cos I made two squares this week in exactly that pink :-)

  5. That sugar shoe is divine!! I know just the person who would appreciate teacher friend who loves everything pink and every shoe under the sun, lol!!
    I'm goad you're taking time out for yourself this week Anne, you sound as if all that went on was a bit too much last week. Take care, please...
    Hugs, LLJ 51 xx

  6. I have a bunch of scrap paper in 2 containers. I see all yours there. Pretty b-day card - love the splattered ink in the background. Brigita #93

  7. Anne, my goodness, you've been busy! Your pink square is so pretty and will be so lovely for a blanket. Hope the rest of the week slows down a bit for you so you have time to play. :) Happy WOYWW and thanks for your visit. ~ Laura #83

  8. Love that sugar shoe ;)

  9. Wow Anne - you are a busy badger!

    As I've not visited you before I read your intro bit at the top of the blog - my goodness those are places from my past! I went to Birmingham Poly (now UCE), I lived in Streetly for my first year and Perry Barr for the last three, I spent many happy hours in Sutton Park with my then boyfriend - who subsequently dumped me - on top of Barr Beacon, the day I finished my finals - Happy Days LOL! All a LONG time in the past!

    Gorgeous card - I'm guessing made with SU products? Your little pen jars are sweet - and lovely to have something made by your GDs on your desk too.

    Thank you for your visit - hope Auntie is well. Have a happy week. MMx #43

  10. Wow, you've been productive! That square looks pretty and so is the shoe! Thanks for the good thoughts for hubby and his surgery. I will leave soon for the hospital and will bring him home later. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  11. Goodness, Anne. What a week! Hope you can catch up with yourself before too long!! That shoe is just great! Well done on the first square, and the card is delightful.
    Have a great, and hopefully, less manic week.

  12. Very productive days, Anne! I loved seeing all of your projects...and your desk, too :)
    I recycled a grocery bag full of papers from my desk yesterday, so am making a little progress on sorting, as well as continental knitting, and playing with polymer clay. Blessings to you and yours, xx

  13. That shoe is amazing. I hope you post a pic of the cake. I like your knitting square. #3

  16. I keep a fairly busy schedule, and even I got tired from reading everything you managed to accomplish in a week. What a lot of work, too.

    Yes, I remember seeing the square at Annie's last week. I was most impressed with hers AND now yours as well. Way to go.

    Thanks for visiting me already and happy slightly belated WOYWW from #1.

  17. Crikey, Anne, now I have to go have a nap after reading what you wrote! I'm exhaustapated!! You put me to shame with all the running around, cleaning, cooking, visiting, taxiing, card-making, knitting, and sugar-shoeing you did! You ROCK!! Hugs, Darnell
