WOYWW #61

The 61st WOYWW eh!  just my age!!!!

I really do look forward to Wednesdays now and having a peep at all your craft desks. I see marvelous creations, complete clutter, 'just got to have' goodies, the occasional tidy spaces, but much more, it just makes you feel you know so many like-minded people sharing this wonderful hobby. Long live WOYWW.

I've been a bit busy this week. I've made some special cards that I was quickly running out of time to do, had another go at changing the look of my blog - it's a bit better I think, anyone agree? but mostly, I've been sweeping up sawdust as 'Peg Leg' fitted a new door and frame to the front room. Did you notice I said 'fitted'? - YES it's finished. Hooray and wondrous joy. The very first job to have been started and finished in one go!!! I'll be in trouble when he reads this now.  I have the job of painting it all now and doing a bit of wallpapering so I had better do a good job aswell.

I bought a new guillotine yesterday, a 9" X-Cut. I am so tired of not having a machine that cuts straight and this one was mentioned to me as being good.



I haven't used it yet but 'peg leg' tried it out yesterday for me and it cuts a treat.
Heather's ATC swap this month has the theme 'Beside the Seaside' so I am working on my 3 cards for that.


Who turned the world upside down? August is our summer isn't it? So where's all the sunshine then? Since we came home, 3 weeks ago tomorrow, it hasn't stopped raining. It's pouring down now and we have to go out to shop for food as 'peg leg' is going to the Woodvale Rally - model flying show - tomorrow 'til Monday.
I hope it stops soon so he can enjoy it all.

Anyway, better go and get ready. See you all next week after I've had a peep at your desks.

Can vouch for the paper chopper. They are excellent. I've had mine for a few years now.

Lovely collection of Stickles.

We've had very little rain this summer, so today's is very welcome even if it did come in a massive thunder and lightening storm that caused a power cut for most of the afternoon and put paid to my visits to WOYWWers desks for a while.

Good investementn I'd say Joanne - that XCut...just be sure to hold down the pink bar to secure the paper against the movement of the blade and it's lovely and clean. Like your beside the sea pictures. We've had no rain but it's been very gloomy for a couple weeks. Makes me feel like it's all over.
