WOYWW #139

It's that day again. You know, the one where we all wonder where the other 6 went then go on about crafting in a mess or blaming other things like cl***ing or ir***ng or sho***ng for getting in the way of our pleasure that is anything inky or sticky or painty. Well, that's my view on life anyway........ For all that, I do enjoy Wednesday when we hop around to each other's to have a good old nosey about. Thank you Julia once again.
I managed another few charity cards and will be taking a bag full today to the NW Ambulance shop after a visit to get my bird nest hair sorted. This is the last one I made.
The angle makes the butterfly look off centre, but it's not.
I actually took a couple of photos last night of my little space because I am quite pushed for time this morning.

Gosh! one daylight desk lamp and night setting on my camera and the photo is better than any taken through the day. The light has been so bad this month that maybe I should have used that setting all along. Nothing to show as you can, or should I say, cannot see. Here's the other angle:

You can tell it's the evening. The glass of wine gives that away, because I haven't started drinking in the morning - yet!!! LOL.
There are some major changes planned for my workroom which also include some to the kitchen. I just have to find the money for a new washer/drier first. However, if anyone knows of any reason why I shouldn't buy a combination machine, I would like to hear them. Until next week then my friends. x

What a gorgeous card. I love everything butterfly. I like the night desk, and not for the wine shot, either. I just like a clean desk. Happy WOYWW. I'm # 30 this week.

I had a combination Zanussi for years,. It was great! But, whenever it was discussed, my friends thought I was mad...as in - but when you're drying you can't wash! Well it wasn't a problem for me...sometimes a bit of planning, but I clearly didn't use it as much as some....indeed, when it finally gave in, I didn't replace it, I've been a few years without a drier now. I only miss it for the smalls in the winter.
So now to stop wittering and say how grand your desk looks...time to get messing!!

Cl***ing is most definitely a dirty word in my house! I'd much rather be playing with fabrics instead :)

Well thanks to the wonders of WOYWW I’m here having a peek into your crafty world this week and you seem to have been busy.

Great butterfly card!

I hope the rest of the week’s turns out to be just as crafty.

Happy Crafting!

That angled butterfly card is gorgeous!
Your space is so tidy!

I confess to not even knowing that a combination washer/dryer existed! As someone who uses the on-site shared laundry facilities I would swoon at the chance to own my own stuff (but alas, no hookups). Have you looked for consumer reports to see what others have to say? My first thought was if it breaks you can't do either anymore.

Great butterfly card and you got the description of WOYWW posts spot on!

Great work on the charity cards, I bet they were over the moon to receive so many from you.

I had a washer/drier for a short while before it broke. I got a repair man to come to fix it and he said it couldn't be fixed and that washer/driers generally have a short lifespan due to water/heat not agreeing with certain parts. So I replaced it with a washing machine and I just use my radiators/clothes horse/hot press to dry my clothes. Some day I'll have a big enough space to have a washing machine and a tumble drier!
Doing the woyww rounds, looks like it's gonna take a while!
