WOYWW 176

Well here is my bomb site this very dark autumn morning:


as you can see I am still in a sewing phase, I will be joining in with a Wicked Blog Hop on the 31st so I am busy preparing for that which is why there is a plan strategically placed over my blocks! Other than that its much the same here - not many more tags on my bird cage as I havent been making many and that cute little trash bin on my desk was a find in Poundland.

So who is going to Hobbycrafts at the NEC in a couple of weeks then?  I am going on the Thursday and will be meeting up with Hettie so does anyone else want to join us?  If you want to know why I am showing my workspace to the world then pop over to Julias where all will be revealed.

Thanks for looking - busy being Wicked from Solihull

edited to add - I forgot! I am going to the Malvern Quilt Show next week on the 26th - is anyone going there too?

edited yet again to add:

I am so easily distracted! so much for the sewing I was planning to do!  arent those skulls just fabulous though! found the mould in Poundland yesterday - honestly what did we do before poundland???  I have also managed to visit the first 100 of you all today too - busy, busy, busy.....

I don't think your room looks like a bomb site, seems pretty tidy to me and I should know 'cause I'm an expert lol. Thanks for your visit earlier.

Oooh nifty birdcage on the wall! and BONANZA??? Jiminy, that takes me back. Could it have been that long ago? Like what? 6 years at least! Another missed opportunity to catch up. Was it you who had her train cancelled? Julia mentioned someone had. How disappointing.

Still, have a Happy WOYWW

Bomb site - I keep looking but can't see one - lol. I think it looks loved and lived in and actually quite tidy! Love your birdcage holder on the wall, that is fabulous. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #41 - thanks for the visit already.

Looks pretty organised to me hun. There are now a few peeps going to the NEC so I may have to take the plunge just so I can put faces to names (spent enough already!!) Happy WOYWW, hugs Buttons #119

Belinda said...

Can't wait for the unveiling so to speak of the sewing!

Wish I could go to the NEC but it is a bit of a long journey! lol
Love the tag holder birdcage on the wall.

Like the birdcage on the wall. Enjoy your shows. Too far for me x

Mary said...

I think you look like you are very organized...a trait I can't seem to capture. I had a look around and you've made some lovely quilts. Sewing, something I can't seem to achieve...the straight line thing throws me :-) What a happy little boy and his quilt! Thanks for stopping by my little space and happy WOYWW...

MaggieC said...

Great birdcage. I would like to go to the NEC but I have spent all my crafting money for the next two months. Thank you for your visit, and have a great time up at the NEC. xx Maggie #65

Sandy Leigh said...

I'm like you--easily distracted! First I'll be sewing--then I'll think of something to put in my art journal--then I'll see my knitting laying there...oh dear! Love seeing the skulls everywhere...what a fun time of year! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #11

lisa said...

It's brightened up nicely here now, I hope it has with you too.

Thanks for visiting earlier.

I have enjoyed my visit today to see your workspace and what you have going on there. The skeletons look interesting, haven't been to poundland for a while but did get some spooky bits in Wilkinsons today.

Happy WOYWW. Impressed with your productivity. Love those skulls. I must get to Poundland. Our internet is too slow for me to get round 100 workspaces - takes me hours just to do a few! Ali x #87

Enejy clemens said...

Love your working area. Seems big and full of goodies!

Nicky said...

Love the little and bin and the extra photos you have added thanks for sharing - must pop into poundland tomorrow :)

Hello Sunshine Girl!

My, you've been busy! And really, I don't see the bomb site! And believe me, I'm speaking from experience!!!!

Thanks for visiting me already - you are so sweet.

Happy WOYWW
Hugs, Kay #18

Paula Gale said...

How on earth did you manage to do the 1st 100 already. It takes me all week to do about a dozen lol.

Lovely big desk for crafting on - but more to get messy! or is that just me?

Would love to go to the quilt show - would love to make a quilt, but alas, no- won't be going... one day maybe.

Up to now, won't be going to NEC - no pennies... I'll be lucky if I can afford to go to the pound shop at the moment... lol.

Thanks for visiting me - surprised that I was even in the top 100, never mind visiting!

Darnell J Knauss said...

You are like a jumping bean, Nicola! A happy and creative place is what I see! Great use of the dining room. I don't have one and most of my friends never use their's, so why waste all that space?!

Have fun on your outings and have a wonderful week! Thanks for coming by to visit me already!

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

Fun desk..I've the same wire cage filled with old crochet items. Then I found a smaller one in white for my laces. So many things to use them for. Have fun #101

Queen Lightwell said...

WOW! I don't think I have ever managed 100 visits! How much do you love your meltpot thingy? I don't have one and I'm not sure I *need* one...but I keep thinking I want one. lol Anyways, your bomb site is looking quite fab! haha :) Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment and, seriously, way to go on making that many visits!

Suzanne said...

I am in love with your bird cage notice board and I always like to see a sewing machine on WOYWW so thanks for sharing. XX

KatzElbows said...

I have so many funky moulds for melt art, but my melt pot is broken! I'm very jealous that you're getting to play, and play so spectacularly.

Happy WOYWW.
cheers, rachel #64

Elizabeth said...

Two things really sprung out at me in the first photo and you mentioned both of them - the birdcage and the wheelie bin ... a brilliant find :)

Enjoyed your edited additions too - those skulls are fab. DH picked up some perfect spiders at ASDA today and one will be starring on my tag very shortly :))

Belated happy WOYWW and I hope you have a great weekend. Elizabeth x #40

butterfly said...

Fabulous skulls - moulds in Poundland you say (note to self!)... Bird cage is such a great display idea for the tags. Blown away by your dedication in visiting 100 blogs in a day - thanks so much for making mine one of them!

My name is Cindy said...

oooh, loving those skulls... will have to check out poundland though I'm not sure when I'll next be near one. I'm loving that bird cage, do let me know if you would like a tag to go on it, I'm sure I could find you one. Sadly won't be going to NEC, maybe next year! Thanks for visiting my desk this week, Happy (belated) WOYWW, Cindy #73

Great birdcage, and interesting desk Sunshine. Love those funny skulls and bones you made - reminds me of bones for the dog. Ha.
Hope you enjoy the shows, and thanks for leaving a comment for me.

Helen said...

Thank you for visiting me my fellow procrastinator! Feel like I should say i'll be back at the end of this message for some reason!!! I feel a vist to pound land coming on - though whilst that little wheely bin is definitely to small for my rubbish requirements it is soooo cute I just want one!!! Have fun at the NEC. Belated WOYWW Hugs from Helen 77

Susan Flynn said...

Wow love your skulls! They will look fab on your Halloween creations. I am ashamed to use I have yet to use my Melting Pot!!

Eliza said...

your table is busy with sewing but most of all those skulls are awesome and the bones too, what have you used to fill them? Love the little bin too.

SueH said...

Sorry to be so late getting round again. I had a very busy end to the week and am only just catching up with myself.

Your desk is looking a real hive of activity this week what with the scull making and machining going on. It never fails to amaze me what people find in Poundland but whenever I go in there there’s nothing special to be had. All I ever come out with is foam pads and a few gems.

Thanks for stopping by this week.

Happy Crafting!
