WOYWW - 6th anniversary!

 Good morning to all my WOYWW friends and other followers!
Well here we are on the WOYWW 6th anniversary.
To celebrate, I have made lots of little ATC sized dumflings which are all packed up with Annie's ATCs ready to pop in the post tomorrow. So, if you have already told me you would like to swap then you need watch for your postie! If you are my PIF then I will send you one too, once I know who you are.

Below is half of my work table with my first anniversary pin cushion made in honour of Julia Queen of our WOYWW fun. I can't believe we have been doing this for 6 years - it's been great to blog hop round so many fab crafty desks and meet up with fellow crafters. Thanks Julia, it was a brilliant idea and you have worked hard to keep us all together all these years.
You can see a few of my ATCs at the front and the little beady worm I bought for Ben
In the background are two lovely ATCs - one from Nikki and another I received as a welcome to my new house card. Thanks to both.
I hope I can get round and celebrate the day by visiting lots of desks.
Thanks to all of you for being there, for visiting my blog and leaving such happy friendly comments.

x Jo

I can confirm that your atcs are even better in the flesh! Hope Julia gets yours to you soon! Your pincushion is standing up to the test of time, too! Happy WOYWW Helen #9

Those ATCs are fantastic, and I simply adore that pin cushion. WOYWWendy is six today because she was made to honor the first anniversary. What fun we've had all this time.

Happy, happy 6th WOYWW anniversary from #1. Hope to see you Friday if I don't forget what day it is!

Neet said...

Gorgeous atc's you have made but then you always do make beauties.
Love the gift for your grandee, he will love that little critter I am sure.
Jo, can you send me your new addie - I have put your atc in with Annie's so you must claim it from her - didn't realise until I was putting them ready for posting that I had not your new address.
Hope you are getting sorted in the new place and that you get some good news about the old one soon.
Hugs, Neet 29 xx
Happy 6th Anniversary

Thank you for the ATC I picked up at the Crop. Hopefully I remembered to put one of mine in your envelope, but it was a busy day and I'm now sure I did! So, let me know, if mines missing and I'll send you one.
I'm so grateful that we've had a chance to become friends through the Interweb ether and am looking forward to actually meeting up in a few weeks' time!! Thank you for all the support and friendship you've extended to me over the past few years :-)
Hugs, LLJ 16 xx

HAPPY WOYWW #6...what fun it has been. Your cheery desk and your unique little designs have inspired me many days. Just love your little bouquets of friendship dumflings. Sunshine in our forecast, so visiting as many as I can, as when it's dry and sunny I have to be outdoors. It's been a while.
Have a wonderful week.. ATC's are in the mail today.

Your dumfings have made such lovely ATCs and lucky me has one! I will have to wait a few weeks to show all mine though!! The little worm looks as though he could be quite naughty!! Chrisx 65

Robyn said...

Happy 6th! My ATC to you went into mail today. I had planned on making you a stitched one, as I'm excited to have more room in my new studio for sewing, and that will have to be next time!
thanks for all the inspiration and visiting.

I totally LOVE your ATCs... if you have one left, I'd love to swap (I have one left too...) Just comment on my blog if you do, so I have your email and we can change adresses then. Enjoy your weekend and happy (belated) woyww-anniversary! Love from Holland, Marit #43

I can never remember which if you is Wipso and which is Twiglet. DOH! You didn't leave a number so this was a lucky guess. Glad you liked the cube ad I LOVED both the dumfling and the mini-quilt. Just so so pretty and intricate. You are amazing to have made so many - when did you start, right after the 5th anniversary!? Amazing, and has pride of place in my ATS display.

Happy belated 6th-anniversary WOYWW!

Your ATCs are beautiful and I was chuffed to collect one for myself at the Crop. I hope that the two of you can manage to come one of the days and we can meet up in person. In the meantime, thank you for your visit and your lovely comments. xx Maggie#8
