WOYWW - ATC swap anyone?

Good morning all!

I have been busy this week making my ATCs ready for our WOYWW 4th anniversary swap.
If you wonder what this is all about, then follow this link to find out more.

Annie and I enjoyed a bit of quality crafting time on fun day Monday.
We both spent time stitching away on our ATCs - they are totally different styles but all lovely!!

If you think you would like to swap ATCs with me then email:
 twiglet517@hotmail.co.uk with your details.

I have made about 25 so - first come first served until they run out, I guess!

Mine are hiding in the box in the top left hand corner of my picture. The rest of the bits and bobs on my desk are some of the fabrics etc that I was using.
Can you see little Tanner wrapping himself in some pretty turquoise lace?
He just can't resist all that pretty stuff - I put it down to his former home life with V at the Bearister Bookcase - his little buddies over there are just the same - they love to check out the pretty things V has been working with!!

Ok - that's me for this week - unless of course you want a real giggle - if so, then scroll down to the post below.

Have a good week
x Jo

I did get a giggle and so appreciate not only your sense of humor, but your willingness to laugh at yourself. You did come up with a wonderful caption. A wedding sounds quite fun!!! Seems you have been busy in spite of it! Have a grand week.

Little Tanner does indeed look very cute in that blue lace. Laughed at your picture below-I admit freely I vet every picture we take & dump the ones of me I don't like- which tend to be most of them!Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #81

I wish I was organized enough to say I was doing the swap....but I am only hoping to have made some and cant promise, so I shall just wait and see.

BumbleVee said...

hahah..... yep... doesn't matter where they go when they leave home...nothing changes does it?
he's just keeping up the happenings that go on around here with his other little buddies......

But, giving Tanner all credit...I'd love to jump and play in your bits of fabric too....

Sorry I can't play ATC this time Jo... got to keep working on the 'wrapping cloth'....and gold begins this week...although, maybe not today...it is only -5C ...I sure as heck hope those women decide not to try it today......we'll have to wear mitts and toques....

SueH said...

Well only a day late but at least I made it round………eventually!
Sounds like you have a lovely day with Annie on Monday making all your ATC’s. I think I really need to get my finger out and make some more because I’ve only done half a dozen because I didn’t have many people swap last time round. Oh well, that should keep me occupied for a while!
I pleased that you want to swap ATC on the 29th. Email me Here with your address and I’ll pop one in the post to you nearer the time. My details are on their way.
Happy Crafting!

Oooh! Someone else with lots of gorgeous lace on show this week and that's a very happy little bear sitting there. You have been busy with the ATCs ... I have to confess, I've not even started yet :( Maybe next week I'll do something. Hope you have an enjoyable bank holiday weekend. Elizabeth x #92

Neet said...

That's a material fest you have on there. It was lovely to meet up with your sister last week and I got to wave to you at least.
Thanks for visiting me earlier - sorry I am so late - been away. Hugs, Neet xx

Morti said...

Just a quick hello as I've not had time to get round many desks this week!

Thanks for stopping by...

Lucy said...

I'm taking part in the ATC swap too, but I decided to make one through the art of cross stitch and it's taken weeks, so i'm afraid I can't swap with you. It is great that you have made so many to swap with, a really lovely sentiment. Thanks for popping by and have a great week. Lucy #32 x
