Hello, it's that time again, it does come round quickly doesn't it! What am I on about,well the weekly look at the desks of crafters around the globe. Don't be shy join in here !

Thank you for your lovely comments last week. Hello to Sarah Brennan - I always read your blog, thanks for commenting on mine.

So what have I been up to since last week? Hmmmmm struggling to remember some of the days :-)

Last Thursday was shopping and visiting my Aunt  Friday and Saturday stayed at home and was crafting. Had some gorgeous flowers in the post, from eldest son and family in Yorkshire,  and  another lovely surprise in the post - will share in a moment.
My second lovely surprise - in the post

The lovely Jan - LLJ sent me this delightful zip bag - how kind of her - thank you Jan ( I hope you got my email)  I love it! I am collecting Jan's bags , this is my 3rd one !

On Sunday, Mothering Sunday, I had a very chilled day. My youngest son came round with flowers, card and voucher for Afternoon Tea! A lovely call from eldest son. I also spoke to Mum. I was sad that her card had not arrived, my sister and brother's, posted after me got there, mine arrived Monday morning :-(. Then later on we went to youngest son's for dinner. My D.I.L.'s Mum was there also and my son cooked everything and waited on us all, I was rather proud of him. Our granddaughter's entertained us well. A lovely, lovely day . ( It was tinged with sadness as I thought of Mum and also it was the Anniversary of my brother's accident and death. I remember it all vividly even though a long time ago , he was ten and I was eleven, sad that this year it fell on Mother's Day )

This week has been filled with more decluttering, sorting and crafting.

I have four ladies coming to craft on Thursday evening and four on Saturday morning. I also promised just a few, very few items for my friend to put on her table at a Craft Fair on Saturday.

So my desk tonight /Wednesday morning

I also spread out onto the kitchen table. Have some finishing off to do yet.

Below the gorgeous flowers etc I received for Mothering Sunday

Below the card I made for Mum- not quite finished in these photos but I did finish it before I posted lol

Well that's it for now. I will visit as many as I am able to .

Mum should have left hospital today to go to yet another Care Home . I tried to ring her but no reply. I am waiting for information to go through to my younger sister . It is all very difficult and is getting me down a bit. Hopefully will know a little later if she got to new home ok and is settling in.


  1. Goodness.. you are a very loved Mum! My sons are really bad about not getting me cards and flowers for mother's day. :-( At least my daughter remembers to send me something. I hope your Mum gets settled in a nice place so you don't have to worry about her. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. Happy Mothering Sunday, Anne! I am so glad your family helped you celebrate so beautifully. I admire your creative cards, and your organizational efforts. Thinking of your family health challenges and praying each one who has been ailing will feel better soon. xx

  3. You’ve had a busy week with lots of really lovely creations. It’s such a difficult time for you with what you’re having to deal with I’m sure. Try to focus on the things you can change and do your best to not fret about the ones you can’t. I know too well how hard it is so you have my full sympathy.
    Biggest hugs,
    Annie x #14

  4. It sounds like you had a very special Mother's Day with some beautiful gifts and flowers and family time and I like the look of all the Easter activity on your desk this week.
    Hope all works out with your Mum.

  5. What an amazing card you made for your mum - it certainly has the wow factor - I love it. I hope she gets settled in her new home, it must be a worry for you. What a beautiful little zip bag from Jan - aren't you a lucky lady! And your flowers are gorgeous.
    Have a good week,

  6. Hi Anne, thanks for the shout out and for visiting each week. The card you made for your mum is lovely; what a shame the post let you down. Hope she settles in well to the new care home. Happy WOYWW Sarah #10

  7. Aww, didn't you have some gorgeous prezzies for Mothers Day - what a lovely family you have. I was lucky too :-D. I'm glad you like the zippy bag, it was just a little thank you for all the beautiful bits and pieces you sent me and for which I'm incredibly grateful. I didn't get your email, may be it's gone to my old address, which I'll have to check out on the main computer. I'll get back to you!
    Hugs LLJ 8 xxxx
