WOYWW 269 where to start

Hi dealers  blogger ate my post and decided to publish an earlier saved one ...... no time to do it again so just pictures grrrrrrr
OMG it's been a busy week here in the fairy grotto.... Grotty more like. 
If you are here to see my desk please be patient I've a lot to get through in this post. Don't forget to sign in at Julia's place the home of work space heaven. 
So .... This was me at 4.30 am Tuesday .... Couldn't sleep, it's hot you see.

now call me a bit OCD..... (really?)
I have been intending to sort these for a while. I lost count of the number of ways to fold a fat quarter.

Yarn bowl I made a few weeks ago

The fruits oft 4.30am start it all had to be re ironed

I made this bowl at a pottery class a while ago and painted it this week, this is before it's 'cooked

The original photo..... Printed onto safmat.   Man that stuff is good 
By for now please leave your name snd no and I'll get back to you 
Ps I hate blogger grrrr!


  1. don't you just hate blogger sometimes!! loved the photos though. Have a good day.. Helen 7

  2. Your yarn bowl turned out great!! Well done you, bet it gets used loads! Ad I love to see piles of beautifully folded fabric so your first pics made me very happy...sad but true :-)
    Hugs, LLJ 2 xx

  3. Love that yarn bowl...what a brilliant idea. I'm with you and Jan on the fabricand can't wait to do the same with mine [that is if there is any left by the time we get to the new place lol].

  4. I love Safmat :) soo useful. How cool to make it a puzzle. And the yarn bowl - genius! I love that you were productive in the middle of the night. I am SO familiar with 4:30 AM waking times but tend to grab my iPad and spend a couple of hours watching You Tube craft videos or playing Candy Crush LOL! I should do what you do but fear I would wake the rest of the house and then they would want feeding and coffee and to stay quietly in bed....

    Happy WOYWW!

  5. Wow, that bowl is just lovely. In my dreams I long to have a go at pottery - but with really bad excema I'm not too sure it would be a good idea? Yep - I love to see piles of fabric as well... That's why Abakhan is my second home, I think. Your lovely stash is beautiful
    Take care. Trust there's no more problems with blogger. God bless.

  6. I had to comment AGAIN - I have to wonder if you could recycle old jigsaws from the charity shop? Would the safmat cover the old image?

    Just a thought.....

    MA again

  7. Lawks 4.30am. OMGeee I never have that sort of trouble sleeping, I'm sorry for you Janet. I don't do well without my sleep! At least ironing and re-sorting your stash is a pleasure at any time..and it does look fab all stacked n a rack like that. Almost makes me want it..! Your yarn bowl is fantastic! Are you very very chuffed?!

  8. Blogger... I can't complain lately but I have had problems! Love your bowl and the shoe puzzle! You are soo good ironing and restacking your material! My OCD wouldn't make me do that! :-)
    Lots of hugs,

  9. Great bowl and I love the before and after pic. The glazing is lovely.

  10. Just been reading your comment at my's my button bag. Crocheted from a jelly roll torn into half width strips. I love it.

  11. Loving Erin's shew pics and your storage for fabric is perfect, though not sure about the 4.30am bit!! Your pots are fabulous! Take care Zo xx 43

  12. Yes - blogger's been strange lately! So many projects you have going on! Is that yarn bowl for holding yarn? I've never seen anything like it!

  13. great photos and my youve been busy I love the potetry on my wish list of things to do one day as for the shoes super sweet have a good week and hope blogger behaves crafty hugs Andrea #21

  14. There is so much going on in your area that I think you need to sit down and take a breath for a moment. Great photos and great projects though! Judy #76

  15. Oh, I love the yarn bowl. Not being a knitter/hooker, I'd have absolutely no use for it, but still! No desk from me this week, hence no number, but you know where to find me.

  16. Great variety of crafts shown here, clever girl to be able to make all this.
    Hope you have a great week and happy crafting, Angela x #38

  17. Shiny shoes! That yarn bowl looks like it will hold a large ball of yarn! What is that window thingy on your desk? Happy WOYWW! #37

  18. So far I've had no problems with blogger but I'm sure my day is coming. Love the yarn bowl. I used to do ceramics over 40 years ago. Still have a couple dishes intact. Love the shoes photo and the making it into a jigsaw puzzle. Happy WOYWW!

  19. When Blogger decides to be bad, it is very, very bad, I think most of us have discovered at one time or another. Adore your yarn bowl, its stunning. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #6 xxx

  20. Love your workdesk and your fat quarters! Such pretty fabrics! Thanks for visiting my blog for WOYWW! ~Sandy in Texas #67
