WOYWW

Good morning to you all. I went to bed early last night with the head ache of all head aches, but thank goodness this morning it has gone.

It is Wednesday morning and that can only mean one thing here in blogland WOYWW
and if you don't know what I am talking about pop over to Julias blog and have a look. Julia is the leader of WOYWW it is when we all get to have a good snoop around and share pics of desks, craft rooms, drawers even on top of washing machines any where crafters create, its fun and and a good way of meeting more crafting buddies.

OK, so what is on my dinning room table this morning.
I have three more word albums ordered:

BABY


HAPPY


SISTER


They are all taped up ready for covering.
BH cut the sister book from chipboard as I could not get a pre cut one. He has made a really good job of it too, might have to give him the job on a regular basis. :-)

A few weeks ago I was given a bag of old dress making patterns and I have only just got round to having a look at them. There are a lot, more than I first thought so look out for some projects using these.

               
Talking of sewing it is this months theme for our ATC swap, if you love making ATCs and would like to join us drop one in the post before next Tuesday with a SAE.
mmm I wonder if I could use some tissue from one of the patterns on mine... what this space.

Take care and have a lovely Wednesday and make sure you fit in some 'crafty me' time. Lynne x

  29. The pattern tissue die cuts in thick wedges like a dream - I've made a load of flowers with button centres (of course) and had a lorra fun using them up. The albums - quite a reputation you're achieving, how fantastic.
