WOYWW.....

Hello to all my fellow WOYWWers.  Yes, it's Wednesday again....don't they come around quickly?  This is the best day of the week when lots of crafty folk expose their spaces to the rest of the world....and there are more each week so please pop over to Julia the Queen of Snoop's blog and join in the fun.

As you will all know by now my days are always full of something.  I try to keep half an hour around midnight free for sleep  :-)

This week has been one of celebrations and there are lots more to come this month.
  1. We managed to get our dear friend B into a really lovely care home close by so we are able to keep in touch with her.
  2. Saturday my daughter got engaged...wahooooo
  3. Twiglet celebrated her birthday yesterday.
  4. I've already reached 1030 on my customer count!   Where do they all come from?
 And what photos have I got to share with you today?




We have now got a door in the new doorway and it's all ready for plastering on Thursday. Then of course it will all need painting and decorating and possibly a new carpet or two  :-)









This is the knitting I'm busy with in my 20 minutes of crafting every day.  I am making a lap blanket for my friend B....I am a bit like a comfort blanket to her so thought she might like this one for the times when I'm not around.  Don't you just love those colours?













This is a broken necklace my 'Tuesday coffee mate' brought for me yesterday.  I'm sure you can see these gorgeous beads will find a new home in something crafty here can't you?






Well folks, thats all from me today.  Hope you have enjoyed your visit.  Hope to see you back here soon......and don't forget..... 

There are still lots of rubber stamps for sale over in the shop if you are interested.

Love the colours you've chosen for your friends blanket and I'm sure she will love it! Hubby's mum has just been taken into hospital and now thinks every one is trying to murder her! perhaps something from home, like a fav thing, blanket(??) or whatever might help her to stay focused! Have a great woyww!!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I was by early this morning and tried to leave a comment. In fact, I was the first to leave one, but I couldn't for some reason. It simply wouldn't take. I have no idea why (or why not). I love how you devote at least 20 minutes each day on knitting. Before long, it will be finished. I read an earlier post about your 82 year old neighbor. I feel for you. OHHH congrats to your daughter and I'm off to wish Twiglet a belated birthday. Thanks for dropping by my place today.

Anneliese said...

Congratulations to your daughter on her engagement .. lovely news for you :D The blanket will be perfect for your friend I'm sure & all those lovely beads .. hmmm just what to do with them :D x

Jingle said...

The squares for your blanket are looking lovely! I can't wait to see the finished piece!

Chrissie said...

I'll try to remember to make contact before our next visit to Shropshire. We have 12 months to use our Ironbridge museum passports again!
I'll be interested to see how that necklace re-presents itself!

Love the colours you've used to make the blanket. :)

Thank you for sharing.

Julia Dunnit said...

My sissy made me a lap quilt and I love the connection it gives us when I'm lounging - or just plain missing her, so I think it a perfect gift Mrs Wipso. Your customer numbers increase so - because you are so good to them. Simple!

Terry said...

Thanks for the peek, and congrats!
