WOYWWAC - Julia's crowning glory!

Wahoo! Wahoo!! Wahoo!
Well Julia, your "What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday" blog get together has grown from strength to strength over the last year, so much so, that, around 120 or so join in each week now.

Today on week 52 for the WOYWW Anniversary Challenge, I have created, in honour of YOU - Julia, Queen of Snoop - this regal pin cushion.

It comes with a huge thank you for inventing the "WOYWW get together" and thus bringing together so many new friends. The world would be a better place if the friendly WOYWWers took over!! Their sense of humour and caring, sharing attitude would transform a world that at times has lost the plot.

And now, arise Queen Julia and go out to meet and greet the others in your kingdom who wish to congratulate and praise you by showing all of us their WOYWWAC!!

(Should you be wondering what on earth this is all about, then do nip over to Julia's blog and join in the fun!)

OMG!! Julia's going to flip out when she sees this. Clever, functional, beautiful, and an awesome tribute to Queen Julia. How much better can it get? Love the WOYWWAC!

Oh how utterly fab is that Twiggers. Crazy bright colour won't be easy to lose as you work...I kinda already know that it won't fit. Especially after today, your comments are giving me a ridiculously fat head.
