This is the state of my work room today!
Busy getting ready for next Saturday's craft fair at Montgomery, so my room is stacked out with bags of things ready to go (will post more pics of them tomorrow).
Bags and boxes everywhere!
I need to start this morning with a huge tidy up and sort out before I start any more crafting - and what am I doing...... blogging this post and then reading a few of the 150 post that you wonderful WOYWWers put up every Wednesday. I never manage to see all of them but I do enjoy popping in to as many as I can. If you want to join in this mad blog hop, then go to the WOYW Julia, chief organiser's blog and follow Mr Linky.

Two other pics to share...
The view through my window today...

Woke to a hard frost outside - but a lovely sunny morning.

This male woodpecker obviously felt the need for an early breakfast on the peanuts!

See you all later - have a great WOYWW!

How lucky you are to look out on such a lovely view but brrrrr it looks too cold there today, except for woodpeckers!!!

Do you know, I have never seen a woodpecker in real life - lucky you. Good luck with the craft sale - have been looking at sis's things on her blog and think you should do well. That is if she climbs out of the mountain of work she has piling up. Hope you have time to craft. #27

Best of luck at the craft fair and sweet scenes from your part of the world!

Joanne said...

would so love to wake up to see a woodpecker instead of the millions of starlings pinching the big fat cake meant for Mr/Mrs Blackie, robin, coal tits, jenny Wren etc. (13)

I was surprised by all the "stuff" in your normally neat studio. Hope you do well on Saturday. You have quite a view from your window. Really like it. I'm trying to get around sooner this week. Seems like I was just here. Happy WOYWW (#8)

Firstly Jo before I forget, Good Luck to you both for Montgomery, wish you every success and some warmth!

Lovely to see such an amount of crafting ready to go, youve both been so very busy!

The view from your window is astounding, I am in complete envy (which I know isnt a good emotion but you get my drift!) as the countryside beside your home is just stunning!

I never knew the male woodpecker was that colour, is he black white and red? My perfect bird if he is as its my fav colourway!! Ive only ever seen females then, obviously!

Thanks for sharing them, quite beautiful!

Good luck with the craft fair. I envy you your view from your window. I can only have faith that one day we will sell our flat (which is actually quite nice) and move away from our git of a neighbour (who really isn't nice) and have a view half as lovely :)

Helen said...

What a lot you have ready! Love the woody!

Kirsti said...

Looks like you could be busy on Saturday...I'm of to one as well - not looking forward to it tho if the weather stays as wintry as it's been today...Have a great week...Kirsti (98)

Chrissie said...

Fab pictures Twiglet... I bought some feeders for the birds in our garden, they ate up the fat cake quickly, but haven't touched the seeds from the seed feeder or the nuts from the squirrel proof feeder... don't know what I'm doing wrong!

Doone said...

can i come and live with you?


Ali H said...

Good luck for your craft fair ! Great view this morning ! I haven't seen my woodpecker yet this winter but my family of nuthatches are back - OMG what messy eaters - they seem to scatter the food from the feeder everywhere ! have a fun crafty week ! Ali x

Carola Bartz said...

I have to say, I fell for your photos, especially the one of the woodpecker. We had a pretty frosty morning as well, now it's sunny and lovely, but chilly. The birds sure love the feeders!

Shirley Pumpkin said...

Love how beautiful it is there.. my husband just looked at the picture and said he knew where it was.. that he had been to Conway..? He has been everywhere.. I put some pictures of the snow at my place but not of the view I will have to do that sometime..

Spyder said...

Haven't seen a woodpecker on my nuts in years although they are about, sounds like you've been as busy as ever!
Happy WOYWW!!

oneoff said...

Good luck to you two for the craft fair at the weekend - wishing you lots of buyers.

It looks really chilly there, so I'm glad that Mr Woodpecker was able to fuel the inner bird. How lucky to have one visit your garden.

Sherry Edwards said...

You've both been very busy - love the items you're going to take along (just looked at the later post), hope it all goes well at the fair and the weather isn't too bad.

Now that's what I call a VIEW from a window - stunning!

Thanks for the lovely snoop around x
