Hi everyone,
Thank you all so much for your lovely comments & visits last week....
It's that time again to upload and write of what we all have been up to by sharing our desks on the wonderful desk hoppers  Wednesday known as WOYWW... the brainchild of the lovely  JULIA  pop over and all will be revealed join in and from the comfort of your home you can visit the worlds desks... Here is what I've been up to this week....

I had great fun getting out my paint and crackle paint to do these small blocks for a new baby boy
 named Thomas my daughter asked me to make them for her friend... I made these for my own Grandchildren and they sit high on a shelf so the child can't touch them... only for decoration not toys...

 I felt good to have sticky fingers again I have not done much crafting since taking up sewing...
 Speaking of sewing I have finished my little embroidery piece I was working on the image I love and it's free over at  Jenny's  click on the side of my blog at Jennys wonderful peaceful blog The Stitchery club and it's in her shop.. enjoy...
 As you all know I loved my paper crafting  but I change my room to a sewing room last year well I came across these old vintage designs wooden stamps the top image in the below pic is the one I use on my Christmas tags each year
  these are two others  I have just got to decide which image to use on my Christmas cards this year,,
Well that's me done for this week ... I'm off to get my coffee to visit the worlds desks... Have fun x x

Thank you so much for your kind visits today.... Keep Safe x x x x

  1. Morning May. Well done on finishing the sewing. Hmm - not sure which I would choose of those stamps - they all are gorgeous.
    Take care. God bless.
