WOYWW Catching Up!

Didn't make it last  Wednesday to WOYWW - not much on my desk though as I'd tidied up after the All Day Class on Saturday. In fact not a lot this week as I have not done any paper crafting since the class.

All ready for me to start again!!! Got family coming at the weekend though so I don't think any paper crafting getting done just yet.

The class went really well, everyone enjoyed it - well so they said. I forgot again to take many photographs -

 I made up kits with everything in for the above - that way those that didn't finish were able to do so at home.

In the morning we made the mini album and box below. This is not my photo of this - but from jenny Moors from whom I purchased the class tutorial. The ladies all finished theirs and they looked as beautiful.

Completely forgot to take pics of the lovely food/ cakes etc my friend made for the day :-(

well I'm a bit late to the WOYWW party this week , but will visit as many as I can and all those ending in same number as me.

Catching Up

 I needed to catch up with a few chores that were neglected and also wanted to spend time with DH - he was very good while I was preparing for my class and he was brilliant on the day. He did go out on the morning but came back in time for lunch :-) which was delish. He loaded up the dishwasher afterwards and tidied up the kitchen, what would I do without him.

We actually spent quite a bit of time together in the garden- moving things around etc. I was inspired after visiting the Garden Centre last Sunday with DH and also by the 'bucket o' herbs ' my friend gave me for turning up her curtains.

On Tuesday I went to Sugarcraft and then DH and I went to hang the curtains for my friend.

Friday we went on a ' Jauntette' as DH described it. Not mega exciting by many standards but we enjoyed it. Went to Ikea for breakfast, very tasty and good value - they just need to get people through the tills more quickly to ensure food stays hot. Afterwards we went to Boundary Mill, had tea and scones there!! Then ordered in pizza for supper - we were very lazy. Bought a few bits when out as well - spending the kids inheritance :-) Enjoyed the day!!

Had to go and do food etc shop / really needed to replenish and replace :-)

I decided to join a CAL - should have started on Wednesday but haven't managed to yet. Have my yarn and everything ready now though.Not stressing will do it as and when  am able .

On Saturday we had an impromptu picnic in the park. I had to go and get a few bits and pieces ready for DH's and youngest son's birthday ( Thursday and Saturday) , added a couple of new tops for me. DH had gone to park in the park - it is near my Auntie's and we had to pop there as well. I bought a sandwich etc and we sat in the car enjoying the view and watching lots of youngsters enjoying themselves. very relaxing and then I had to go to my Aunt's - another story !!!!

Here are a few more cards Imade/ still working on the bottom two . Cased  the first one

That's all for now - have a cake that just cooked needing my attention. back soon.


  1. The class looks great fun!And I can't rememver the last time I had a fried brekkie...tempting!! Had a hectic day wet-felting loads of new background pieces so just dropping in for a quick snoop! Thanks for stopping by my desk earlier. Happy crafting, Max #37 :-)

  2. Anne, Loving the cards.

    You have been busy.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Happy WOYWW

  3. Anne, those cards made by the group are gorgeous, is that rose a dies or embossing folder? Your cards are lovely too, especially the dark red rose, fabulous.
    Thanks for visiting my desk, the white space in and out. The white outside cleared up during the day but has started again about ten minutes ago, and the big white inside is covered with wool now.Ah, well.

  4. Hi Anne! It look like you're having a happy creative life.. good for you! Your hubby is a good one to help and support you while you're busy having a fulfilling time. Mine is good like that too. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  5. Goodness, Anne. What a lot you have packed in recently!!! Those items from your workshop are lovely. The colours are stunning. So much done in the house, the garden, and round about, too. I wholeheartedly approve of breakfast, lunch and dinner not having to be cooked! I mean, no need to run the dishwasher that day!
    So glad someone else understands the principle of the spring jungle clearance. I thought I would be going out again today as the sun came out - but I just couldn't find the energy - so I haven't. It means the poor guy coming in tomorrow to paint the fencing will have to fight his way passed kerria, raspberry canes and through some rampant vinca!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh well, I can't do everything.
    Thanks for your visit. Glad the places are known to you - it is so very beautiful up here - I'm so thankful to be back here.
    Well, hope the cake is good...
    Take care. God bless.

  9. As usual you are keeping busy! It would be fun to attend one of your classes. I believe the ladies meant it went they told you they had a good time. I really enjoyed the SU class I took. Happy Birthday to your menfolk! I laughed out loud when I read you were spending your children's inheritance :) Somehow last week or the week before I ended up eating out so many meals in a row I decided I was on a "staycation." Wishing you more happy days xxxxxxxx
