WOYWW 176 The Saturday Edition

Hi Wednesday World
Saturday? I hear you  cry. Saturday was the day of the WOYWW crop.
Sorry if you have heard it already on another blog.

 What a day it turned out to be. Everyone seemed like old friends, it was lovely to put faces and voices to names and art!
After the introductions we started with the important part of the day.... eating cake . . . . and what cake there was, yummy, yummy, yummy!     Morti what's the recipe please.

I was still suffering with my horrid cold, and was very aware that I didnt want to 'pass it on'

I had spent the day before battling around Ally Pally at the knitting and stitching show  and was feeling  a bit jadded and not my usual chatty self.

I  didn't take many pics, I forgot really, if you want to see more  hop over to stamping-ground   and follow the links.
anyway here are a few of my pictures of the day

This is my desk when Morti was showing us how to alter a domino ( see how it turned out at the end of this post).

Here is LLJ flexing her muscles ready to serve us a delicious hot lunch, no wimpy sausage rolls and sandwiches for the WOYWW girls.

Sam (hettiecraft) and fergus weren't sure if they had brought enough stuff.

Kate's ( i think) beautifully packed bag, love those coloured pens

Pam started off with a blank canvas, this is how it finished . . . beautifull won a gold medal :)

I managed to finish my domino this morning.

The bee is shrink plastic and the stamp is from craft stamper

Here is my desk early on Tuesday afternoon, it isn't stripey just very sunny.
Most of the stuff is still to be put away after the weekend.
Still full of cold and didn't feel like it.

The pink goodie bag had choccies, a pincushion  (in the middle) and a card challenge from Julia and LLJ.
The green felt is for my next charity project..... poppies for the british legion poppy appeal . . . ... more  about these next week.
I will try and visit as many as possible this week, it is a real problem now with so many posting.
Several of us at the crop do the same thing ... that is, visit  followers, all that comment and those with the same ending number, it seems to work well.
thanks for visiting, please leave a comment if you can.

See you on a workdesk near you soon

  1. It was lovely to see you on Saturday, Janet - cold or not! Glad to see that you had lots of takers for your class too, time just got away from me, I'm afraid. I was quite tired on Sunday!
    Hope you feel better this week,
    Hugs, LLJ 56 xx

  2. You all had a lovely time at the crop & i'm pleased it all went so well. Hope you get over your cold soon 7 start feeling better. jill #51

  3. Great to meet you on Saturday -I haven't succumbed to the cold (yet)though there is one lurking - but I don't think it's "yours"!! I was quite tired by the time I got home, and spent most of Sunday snoozing, though I did load my photos on the blog later!
    your domino looks great, by the way. Hope to see you again soon! Helen, 4

  4. The domino is just many blog people have colds...must be a computer virus. Have a good week.

  5. That cold is really clinging to you probably have overdone it and now it feels at home. It was great to have you there on Saturday..we didn't notice that you were unchatty, we did sympathise with the honey and lemon you were having to drink though! Felt poppies? Nice...when you've got a mo then!!

  6. I'm so fed up at missing such a greaty day - it clashed with our own crop. I hope I can come along and meet you all next time. That domino is amazing and those butterflies just stunning! Happy Wednesday. :o)

  7. Sounds like you had a good time despite feeling rough - hope you are feeling better now. Good luck with the charity project. Thanks for sharing - Sunshine Girl no. 57

  8. Wow everyone had such a great time and it is lovely that you shared the pics of what you were all doing.

  9. Oh didn't that domino turn out fab! Great to meet and chat. Wish I had been up to the tassel class - they looked AMAZING. Oh and I am visiting you from my desktop not my iPad this week and realized that for some reason the Gecko cake post doesn't show up on my iPad. I mean the POST does but lots of the photos don't No idea WHY, but I think WOYWW will def. always be desktop not Pad from now on. I hate missing stuff! And you were right - I WOULD have remembered those two. :)

  10. Lovely to meet you on Saturday. We had a great time didn't we? Your desk looks fab and your pics of our day are super. Take care Zo xx 78

  11. I'm off to change my email address(!) ha hahaha

    thank you for the excellent tutorial - and I do hope you have a rapid recovery from what sounds like a horrid chest infection, My tassel looks so impressive - one of those - 'did I really mkethat?' moments.

    Will drop into C&H ( winchester?) one day and scream "helloooo"

  12. Been lovely to see all the crop pics today. Love the canvas, a well deserved win there, and your domino came out beautifully- I have a box of those somewhere....I agree how hard it is to get around everyone, I too go to those who visit me,then I pick everyone with the same end number as me, then minus 5 from that & visit those. If I'm lucky enough to have a day or two off around Wednesday, I try & get to everyone. But we all know how time flies, and we all have work & families, so I think we all appreciate the visits we do get :)

  13. Lookin good :) Love having a peek into the spaces of fellow crafter's! If you happen to peek in on my blog, be sure to wear a hard hat! LOL!

  14. Looks like a great time!! Love the butterfly piece and you domino turned out great.

  15. Hi Janet. I'm just making my second visit of the day to the WOYWW desks. Looks like yoou had a brilliant time at the weekend, and you got to meet Jozarty and Donna, two of my crafting buddies, and both very generous. Speaking of generosity, a big thank you for your little gift - will send my proper thanks in a private email.
    Love the domino, I bought loads of blanks years ago so have a lot to go at - when I get the time.

  21. Hi Janet,

    I can't get enough of hearing about the Crop! How absolutely AWESOME!!!!! The altered domino project came out really nice. I've seen dominoes at the thrift store - should I add those to my list of things to buy?

    Thank you for visiting me already!!!

    Happy WOYWW
    Hugs, Kay #18

  25. Hi Jan. Saturday was all too quick wasn't. Just settled down and next we were all packing. I meant to take a peek at Morti's dominos but when I turned round it was over!! Time flew!
    As for my project, I have now snapped 2 needles! and done all the danglies on the first run and am now going back for a second run! One cannot have too much purple and beads. Been looking up supplies too! NEED more!
    Thanks again.

  26. Your little domino is really lovely - what a fun day you all had!! x Jo

  27. That cold of yours must be something that is plaguing the world this month cause several friends here are complaining of same issues! Hope you get to feeling better soon. Love all the pics from the crop! Wish I could have been there. Nice looking domino too! Thanks for sharing and have a great week. Glad you stopped by my blog! Vickie #71

  28. You all had such a wonderful time, all the posts (and pics) have been such fun--thank you for sharing with us!

  30. Other than being sick, it sounds like you had a fun time! Your domino turned out so lovely :)

  31. Hi Janet, it was a fun day wasn't it? Had to smile, was looking through your photos and saw the pens in the bag and thought - wow, someone else has their promarkers in a detergent box.... then I realised it was my bag!! Must be time for bed. Thanks for visiting my desk and happy (belated) WOYWW Cindy #73

  32. Sounds like it was a blast! Love seeing all those bags of stash everyone brought with them... Great altered domino! Belated happy WOYWW!

  33. Lovely to meet you too, the domino is fab wished I'd paid more attention to those now :-( hugs Pam x

  34. I love the domino with the embedded bee! That is such a neat idea. It is good to see different photos as I've visited desks this week (slowly but surely). I'm with Hettiecraft, how do you know if you've brought enough? No matter what you've brought there will be something you left out and will be sad to not have. I hope you continue to get better. Colds are no fun! They sap the life right out of you.

    Thank you for the condolences for my kitty. Poppy, Jack, and I have been spending a lot of quality time together this week. They are a bit miffed the electric blanket doesn't get turned on anymore but it isn't that cold for healthy cats.

  35. Glad you had fun with your domino, but it looked like you didn't need much help from me - you were well away! Love how the bee turned out... V cute!

    I've aadded beaded tassels to my beading project list, I intend to get the book that's out now, for Christmas... on the wish list it goes.....the very LONG wish list....LOL

    Thanks for stopping by!
