WOYWW216 panic------ over

Hi Peeps
now I know its not Wednesday yet but like many of you I write my WOYWW post on Tuesday night coz I have work early on Wednesday.
But tonight apparently Julia has had to post tonight because of 'technical reasons'. check  out the details here stamping-ground.
My mate Lucy cat loves bear crafts text me to tell me and I hadn't even started to write so I'll make it short and maybe I can get to bed earlier (not much chance of sleeping in this heat though)

My main desk with a few bits I am trying to finish; my lace book ... I am doing a whole post related to this workshop piece but it is taking a while and I ran out of time this week.
The pink and purple box at the front is a little decopatch chest I am doing with my GD Erin.... very sticky!
The green draw chest has Erin's button collection in (usually all over the floor)

The other desk is full of stuff I want to start.... a new mini patchwork piece for my bedroom.
 I have the fabric..... in the bags all ready for when I have the time.
 On the right is a big pile of magazines I am working my way through, so much to do...... so little time
well that's all folks.
thanks for all your lovely comments last week I think I visited everyone who visited me and a few others. 
I like the new bloglovin daily e mail as I look at a few blogs on my phone through the day some of you may have noticed me commenting during the week, I never had the chance to do that before.
please leave your Mr Linky no so I can find you 
 p.s . big congratulations to the Cambridges on the birth of their baby boy

  2. I'm loving all the lace. I can't wait to see that box you're working on. It looks interesting from the top. I have piles of stuff that need starting. Just not enough hours in the day. The newest Royal has been all over the news in the US. It was pretty much all that was on our news yesterday. Wonder what they'll name him?? I love bloglovin'. They make visiting other blogs so easy. I started following you over on bloglovin'. Have a great week. (((HUGS)))

    Happy WOYWW

  11. Lots of wonderful projects on the go....your lace book looks and sounds interesting. Are you like us many papercrafters with lots of UFO's to finish (UFO = Unfinished Objects). Happy WOYWW! Danie #74

  12. A lace book - wow I'm in awe of your skill. Hope you slept ok, it's been lovely with the sun but not the heat, I can't cope, I'm a melting puddle of Zoe all swollen and yuck!! Take care Zo xx 91

  13. Hehehe, I know what you mean about time....there just isn't enough of it!! I love your texture journal, it is just divine!! I am sorry that everyone over your way feels like a puddle on the floor, over my way I am a frozen paddle pop lol!! Happy WOYWW.

  17. A lace journal, such a great idea, looking forward to seeing the finished book.

  18. Check my blog!! woo hoo!

  19. Lots of crafty fun there! I have never seen a lace journal before and am quite intrigued by it. It seems there are a lot of times when I have so many different things going on at once, and then other times it is one project at a time. Looking forward to seeing what you will do with that fabric!

  20. Your desks are definitely busy with some fun crafty stuff! Hmmm.... lace journal. Interesting!
    Happy WOYWW and thanks for visiting!

  21. OH yes, don't think we haven't been watching all about that sweet new baby over here, as well--don't they make a sweet looking little family, just beaming with happiness right now!

    Well, maybe not right now, after possibly being up all night with the new little one . . .

    Anyway, looks busy as always here, Janet. I'll tell my daughter and d-in-law about your proximity to "Downton"--they are pretty much insane for the program!

    Happy WOYWW to you!

  22. Really looking forward to seeing your lace book posted.
    Don't mention the sleepless nights with this heat - just that we aren't used to it I guess. If only it would rain at night when we are in bed!
    Hugs and Thanks for visiting me earlier - Neet 44 xx

  23. Julia surprised me too! Usually it's after lunch time here when she posts and this time it was in the morning so i am way down in #54! your lace book is looking lovely. yes, there is just not enough time for all the projects we want to do!

  24. Very pretty lace book and lovely to see the project with GD. Sticky means great fun.
