It's that time again - time to have a look at the desks/workspace of other crafters around the world. Want to know more then click on the WOYWW button on my blog and find out more. be warned though it's very addictive.
So since last week DH and I had a lovely evening with friends on Friday. Granddaughters came on Saturday with their daddy - our youngest son and we were kept on our toes crafting and then watching their puppet show :-)
Sunday I tidied up bits of the garden - can't do too much in one go any more - and I planted one or plants I'd bought at the Flower Show.
On Monday I went to chat to my friend about sugar paste peonies for a wedding cake for my nephew and his fiancĂ©e ( sadly their cake maker had a stroke - at the time there was only 8 weeks to go until the wedding. On top of that my nephew's gran had collapsed at home and been taken into hospital - her son - my B.I.L. and sister were due to travel to my mum's as they were taking her on holiday to Guernsey. The bride,s mum also had to go into hospital for an operation yesterday. So I have been organising the cake - with a lot of help from friends, will tell you more about cake and wedding another time. )Another friend joined us and off we went for lunch - would have been rude not to :-)
Yesterday was crafting - lots of cards needed and I have a Crafternoon Tea planned for 22nd August - but have a million things happening before then so have to be prepared.
Today a bit of me time - treated myself to a manicure - then more crafting - so this was my space late this afternoon - yes I know I'm a bit late :-)
There is a get well card there for my nephew's M.I.L. to be.

Below is card I have been making for my Aunt . Have some finishing touches to put to it.

Well that's it for this week off to link up and join in before it's too late.

  3. Hi Anne, you've had a very busy and mixed week by the sound of it. What a releif you were able to help out with the cake. The card you've made for your Aunt is lovely. The brick wall is perfect for those lovely trailing flowers. Barb xx

  4. Hi Anne, lovely card. What a stressful week you've had! Talk about if it can go wrong, it will! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #4 xxx

  5. It sounds as if you've got a lot going on in your family at the moment, Anne, not just with the wedding but all the health issues too... I love the card you have made, and recognise the sentiment stamp - I've got this one and I think it's my favourite - I always seem to be using it! It's very pretty.

    Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog - it is certainly lovely to be feeling better enough to spend some quality time being creative, and getting on with projects and just having time for some constructive experimental play! I'm afraid you and everybody else is going to have to wait a while longer before the Big Reveal of my secret projects lol! Sorry to keep you on tenterhooks! It will be a couple of weeks yet, I think!

    Happy WOYWW,
