WOYWW and WOW!

I missed last week's WOYWW as I wasn't well at all but I'm back this week and feeling much better although still not 100%.
I hope our Julia, the leader of the world desk hop, kept away the sniffles over New Year and was able to celebrate along with all of you fellow crafty folk out there. It was a quiet one here, once again, because this was the second Xmas and New Year in a row that both my OH and myself have been ill. Not looking forward to these times any more.
So then, the WOW bit. This blog post is my 1,000th....... hip hip hooray to that girl. Can't believe I've found that much to say, I'm usually shy and retiring!!!!!
Right then, my little workspace this morning:
I'm having a go at a canvas for my living room. I played around with it yesterday trying to get the layout right and the next bit is to test the spray inks and perfect pearls 'made up' sprays I have and pick the right colours. I want to keep to browns and red with a bit of gold if I can. It's my last chance to play because we are having a carpet fitted on Friday so apart from a trip to the hairdressers tomorrow, time will be spent on trying to clear the furniture out. Goodness knows where we will put it all but the fitters will work around the sofas it seems.
I shall away then and get something done. Happy woyww.

1000 posts - wow! The canvas looks good already so I think it's going to be very worthy of a prominent place in the living room. Hope the carpet fitting goes well and glad you're feeling better of course. Lindsay x x x

Well done on your 1000th post - I think I must be close.. Hope you feel fully better soon and good luck with the carpet. I desperately need a new one but a) can't afford it and b) can't face moving everything of which there is loads! Helen 7

I love your orderly craft area its nice to see everything within reach. The bits and bobs you've got ready to start on your canvas look very interesting must pop back and see how you get on with it. Good luck with the carpet

Elizabeth said...

Congratulations! 1000 posts - a fantastic number to reach. Sorry that you've been ill over the holiday - that's just too bad - but it's good that you are well on the mend now. The proposed canvas sounds lovely - I look forward to seeing it when completed. Hope you have a good week, despite the upheaval of having a new carpet fitted. Elizabeth x #69

How exciting new carpet....just went through the whole having to move furniture hassle to get our floors redone just before the holiday! It's worth the hassle when it's all done :) Great neat work space :)

Happy WOYWW!

Great desk. Good luck with the canvas. I'm sure the carpet will look great despite the pain of having to move everything out of the way. :-)
