Back from our little jaunt. This gorgeous weather makes me feel I'm abroad somewhere not in the UK. Aren't we lucky to have the chance of topping up our tan at this time of year? It also gives us chance to complete a few jobs which have been waiting rather a long time due to operations etc.
We went to the Lincoln motorhome show last year and it cost an arm and a leg because we bought a new canopy and sides for the motorhome. This year it cost the other arm and leg because we had to replace the solar panels and I felt generous and bought 'T' a 1950s fiesta red Fender Stratocaster which he was 'drooling' over in a music shop we found. Looks rather tearful don't you think.....
That's his Christmas and birthday presents sorted for the next 10years!!!!!
Well back to woyww. Just popped over to Julia's but she was out on the rounds (she could have been but I made that up). Without her wonderful idea none of us would be able to do this desk hopping lark and be nosey without getting caught. Love it.
Not got going yet - only got back Monday and am still doing the washing!!!! but I did take a bit of craft with me and managed to finish my bead project. Can't show you that 'til near Christmas, but it has turned out ok and looks good on the card I made. Just need to figure out how to attach it.
So this is my space today.

A pill box bought yesterday for 85p to hold little beads when I am working with many colours. A lovely Chinese man gave me this idea at the show. He and his wife had a stall selling beaded phone charms etc.. 2 tiny skulls we found, also yesterday, 10mtrs of seam binding (10p a mtr) bought from Scarborough and a T-pouch I made whilst away following the instructions Hels put on her blog a couple of weeks ago. You can also just spy the lid of a plastic box with some beads in which is what I used for my project. So nothing exciting. I'll pop round to yours then for something better.
Happy woyww.

Sounds like an expensive trip - apart from your bead box which was a real bargain.

Apologies for being so late in visiting but I really wanted to pop in and see what you were up to last week. Like the pill box for beads - good organisational tip. That Fender is just gorgeous - what a colour! Hopefully I will get around much quicker tomorrow. Elizabeth x #73
