WOYuntidyWW!


Good morning - Wednesday again! Where did last week go then?!

Today I will be mostly tidying, sorting and clearing out - YUK!


Wipso spent a while in my sewing room after our exciting day out on Saturday. As you all know, she has an amazingly organised room because that is where she runs her successful sewing business from. Well, my room is much smaller but packed full of crafty stuff. I know where everything is but it was beginning to get on top of me (literally, when my big carrier bags of fabric/wool/felted sweaters etc tipped over!) She didn't actually say it was a mess but I know what she meant. lol

So, today is my big TIDY UP day. Next week all will be immaculate!


What's out for you to snoop on today then?


Well, first and foremost on my window sill you can see a dinky, felt pin cushion cupcake and tiny cards, all from the lovely Paula. You will know from Annie's updates on Paula's blog where she is and what she is going through, so I just want to say a big thank you to her for finding time to make my little gift, when she must have been feeling so awful. We all wish her a speedy recovery so that she is feeling well again and pain free and back making us laugh with her wonderful warm and witty comments.


On top of my drawers you can see some of the wedding stuff I have been working with. Wipso and I launched the wedding creations shelf in the blog shop this week. Lots more to do but at least its a start.


On my table are the new yarns that I received yesterday from Kemps Wools - a brilliant service and some bargain wools, there if any of you are interested.


Oh and at the front of my table - someone wanted to see M's trolls - now who was it who had a little troll on their workdesk last week? - Answers on a post card.....


We created little costumes for some -I like Madonna with the golden boobs best.


All those drawers and bags that you can see now have to be emptied and sorted - I may be gone for some time!!!!! If I don't blog for a few days send a rescue party!




And last but not least - for all you robin lovers out there...


Having successfully dumfed a puffin someone suggested I try a robin.


Next I will be dumfing a peacock!


Any other suggestions gratefully received.


Now if you want to join in with the WOYWW madness then pop over to Julia's blog and follow Mr Linky.

I'll say it was a successful Puffin!! A very belated THANK YOU for it too. I am so sorry I haven't been by recently and to say thanks you for the card. But I appreciated it HUGELY, thank you so much.
Robin looks ace too ..... but not as good as my puffin which has pride of place on the dresser shelf with other puffiny pieces until I can find a suitable frame for it.
BIG hugs

Looks like you have a real mess there. Glad you know where everything is and have gotten a handle on it. I love the robin. I want one of those dumfin machines.

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. Feel free to come play in my handmade paper anytime. Bleubeard would love to have you, too.
