WOYWW

I wasnt going to join in this this week as I feel I am running behind on everything again at the moment- why does that always happen?  I am stepping down as chair/secretary from school next week and we held our Charity crop last Saturday (we raised a massive £900 for Cancer Research!) so I thought I would have some spare time but its not happened?  Anyway here is my desk this morning:


It's actually very tidy for me - not much on it as I have busy doing some sewing (hence the pattern, cotton reels and bobbins there that need putting away), the sizzix machine is out as Bernice popped round yesterday afternoon for a quick lesson on crease pads, the empty box is a gift I got last night from OH which is another car mouse as the one on the picture is playing up and my phone is on charge.

I was busy sewing a gift for my Mom who's birthday it is today - Happy Birthday Mom! - so I can't show that yet and I still have done no more on LSNED or the Jennifer McGuire Inspiration Showcase course I should have started on Monday.  Let's hope I catch up later today after I have made Mom's birthday card!

However here is my birdcage tag that I sent to Tertia

There was quite a lot of pink on her blog so I went for these colours - am not sure if she has received it yet as she lives in South Africa and I didn't post it until last Friday but the swap was done via the lovely Frankie's blog and the rules are to show and tell the tag you have made today.
If you want to know why I am baring a rather boring workspace to the world then pop over to Julias where I assure you there are lots of really fun and interesting desks to look at!

Thanks for looking :)

Fantastic job raising that generous amount of money for such a wonderful cause....Congratulations! I saw the little car but didn't realize it was a mouse until I read it. Too cute!! Your tag is just lovely and I think she'll love all the pink you used. Happy WOYWW and have a great day!

Well done on the fund raising and I hope you get your spare time back too! Love that quilt over on the left, looks like it has a coffee theme and the colours are great too. Very pretty tag for Tertia also.

Sorry I am so late getting by this week but I wanted to pop by and visit your blog to say hello and to see what you are up to! Didn't have the time to post(except about newest Doswell addition) or craft the past two weeks due to being in Virginia visiting with the son's family to see the newest granddaughter born. Definitely a fun time none the less. Hope you have a great week. Vickie aka okienurse

Neet said...

Congrats on your fund raising. I used to think Secretary was the hardest job on a committee until I became Chair. Now I realise how hard that is too - but to do both - you deserve a medal.
Thanks for sharing and thanks for visiting my blog. Hugs, Neet x

Tertia said...

That is a lot of money to raise at a crop! Well done!
The tag is fantastic and I hope to be able to see it in real life soon. Living in Africa, things take a very long time to get here sometimes and then, sometimes its here within a week. Depends on who has to deliver, I suppose. LOL
Happy very belated WOYWW
