WOYWW.....

Well? I would really have to say nothing at all.


This is my 'to do' rail [make the best of it because I know it won't be empty for long] .....







..... and this is my done rail. [ I managed to clear it ready for my holidays].




Yesterday I shortened 2 pair of curtains but apart from this I have no other sewing since I got back from my holidays....yes, I'm afraid I have to say I was actuallyAWOL last week and had set up my post to launch automatically. I really didn't want to miss out on the fun but was only able to visit a few blogs last week so many apologies for that....the network in out French Gite was really playing up so my time for blogging was really limited.

I am of course not wasting my free time. I have washed and ironed and caught up with all the chores we all have when back from hols and I have been 'playing' in the time I've had left.



This is the latest crocheted blanket I am working on. Twiglet and I sat catching up on all our news on our Fun Day Monday and I sat crocheting using some wool she had picked up at a Sunday Market...a real bargain :-)







These are a couple of coasters I have crocheted using some beautiful random crochet cotton I found in France.









I also found these two gorgeous little buttons [they are each only a couple or cm across and are actually white] in France and Twiglet and I will be using these in our latest challenge....not sure what we will be doing with them yet but I'm sure you will the first to see the results :-)



Now folks please pop over to Julia, our Queen of snoop's blog, and join in the WOYWW fun. I promise I will do my best to visit more blogs this week.

WOW!!! I can't believe how empty your rails are!!!!!! what have all your customers been doing while you have been away? There must be mis-fitting brides and men with "too" long trousers running to your house as I type!!!! :) Have a good weednesday i hope you don't fill that rail up too quickly so you can continue with your crafts.

Gosh Annie, be prepared for an avalanche of catch up customers! I bet now you've shown us the empty rail, you won't have time to turn around for the rest of the week! Welcome home and sure hope France was a rest.

Good morning - what a lovely cheery blog!! Those rails will soon fill so don't plan any huge crafty projects - just chill and enjoy the freedom till the customers start queueing again!!

Isn't it nice when there isn't much to do and you can relax for a while?? I am sure you will soon have loads to do! I like your crochetting - I think I will take some wool on my holidays next week and have a play! Love those sheepish buttons! Sooo cute!
Hugs,

Adorable buttons. and such pretty cotton. Found the sweetest litte crochet rose and have been making them, but only out of dead boring Lidl-Thursday-sale crochet cotton. And the empty rails? enjoy the lull, even if only for an hour or two.

It's nice for once to have absolutely no work waiting for you, but I hope it doesn't take too long because I wouldn't want to be the bride that doesn't fit into her dress because you were on holiday :)

I dont think I have ever seen you so clear ... I wonder how long it will take for your rails to be overflowing again.
I have to say that I am getting tempted to start crocheting ...only the chunky style for blankets though ..as yours look so much fun.xx

Anne said...

Crochet is on my list of crafts to learn! At the moment I'm too caught up with learning sewing to try crochet (my poor old head can only learn one new thing at a time!) but crochet is next. It looks so complicated, but so impressive - and the results are beautiful.

So impressed at those empty rails!

Pam said...
