WOYWW #53



I bet most of you will be wondering where the past week has gone. Me however, am jumping for joy because it's over!!!! Well, I have the perfect clock for you all. Just take a look at this. It was in the bar at the camp site at Flamborough. I suppose if you've had a few it makes sense. The barman said he had been working there for 6 years and still couldn't read the time with it.

Only joking really. My week with our Jenna was, in the most, really good despite being absolutely exhausted every day. We crafted on the wet days and roamed about on the boiling ones. We made a 6"x6" scrapbook (K&Co) for her to treasure her memories of the week. I took photos of the pages to share with you then promptly deleted them off my camera before downloading them - ooops!!! I spent ages trying to find them before realising what I had done.


We went to Lancaster last Saturday to introduce Jen Jen to Lindsay Mason who was demoing there. Jen had been asking all week who that lady in the picture was on my clock. She knows now. I hope Lindsay wasn't bothered by her because Jenna had a ball.

My little work area is quite tidy - I can't work in a mess, I can make a mess whilst working though.
I have been trying to complete my 3 ATCs for Heather's June swap 'A Midsummer's Night Dream'. We can interpret the theme any way we want, so I have gone for a 'dreamy' one, a 'fairy - Titania' one and skit on the old bard himself, my uncle Bill several times removed, with one of the quotes from the play.




I really need to continue to catch up with emails today and get some planning done as we go away next Wednesday again, this time for just over 4 weeks. 'Pot arm' is back at the hospital on Monday and we are not sure what the outcome will be. He is hoping to lose the cast but we don't know. However, on this trip I won't get much crafting done so I need to get ahead this week.

Enjoy peeping around today.

Gosh, it just goes to show how you look at things without seeing them, I had to go back and look again when I read the comments..... Love your clock but can see how you'd never know what the time is!

Julia Dunnit said...

Gosh those ATCs are super - you've got back and got stuck in straight away, mus tbe nice to have everything around you again. Actually 4 weeks is a long time to be away, so I'm not surprised you have a lot to do, hope some of it is fun though!

Love the clock but is it meant to be 9.25 or 14.35 (not sure if I've worked that out correctly)?
Poor old 'Pot Arm' will you carry on calling him that? LOL

Theakston's Old Peculiar, Flamborough, The Bard as well. What more could a Yorkshire woman in exile in Lancashire wish for. Will try Sticky Stuff Remover on DH's chest. Have just read your profile and see your DH is a remote control aircraft fan. Does he build his own/belong to a club etc etc? Don't do it myself but have had involvement of one kind or another from an early age. Love BettyXXX
