WOYWW 152

I wasnt going to join in today but I have been up for an hour and then got twitchy so thought it best to jump in and show you this (be prepared you might be shocked!):


Ta Da!!!!  Got a bit scared watching Silent Witness yesterday so I thought I would have a tidy up instead!  I have the second part to watch today when a. OH works from home and b. Have small pile of ironing to do so I can stand there safely armed with a hot implement if anything untoward does happen whilst watching it (its a bit spooky!).

So the possibilities are endless today for me with an empty desk - I could get my sewing out, make some tags, prepare a class - one thing I do need to do is sort out a project for an interview I have next week - yes watch this space I might soon be joining the work force again and get to have adult conversations and everything!

One other quick thing to show you as I have a bare desk (oh that is the back of the table runner I made last week by the way - yes I don't know why I put more effort into the back of it and not the front but then I have always been a bit odd like that!) - is this little find from B&M Bargains:



Obviously it didnt come with tags but I thought it useful to show my recent creations and be a place to photograph them easily (it's not it's rubbish for that!) but at least now new tags are on display for a while and not just shoved in my tag box!

Thanks for looking and if you would like to join in with the world wide phenomena that is WOYWW click here to visit Julia and link up.

Thanks for looking - Up early and feeling quite chirpy from Solihull

I love your table cloth! I display my cards and things on a heart thingy a bit like yours. I also do a changing display of old photos.

Are you in some sort of time warp?

The back of your table runner is even MORE beautiful, if that is possible, than the front. I love the British flag influence and it seems to be EVERYWHERE!! Happy WOYWW from #4 this week.
