Hello my friends. Here we are at Wednesday again – how time flies! I trust this finds you well and enjoying lots of craft time. I don’t have an actual desk shot to show you this week as there has been absolutely NO activity on it all week. The reason? I have been away visiting family and friends. However, before I went I managed to do a whole load of finishing… I took over 120 cards to the hotel for their opening week. Then…


The wavy blanket – and the exciting thing was that when finished, the weight of the whole blanket pulled out the wavy sides!!

A pergamano birthday card for my son in law’s mum – it took two attempts as I made a ghastly, irredeemable error the first time so had to begin again!

A fun birthday card for my youngest grandie – simple, but enjoyed by said grandson!

And lastly, a picture from my weekend away – one of my sons in law viewing Snowdon from the comfort of his dining room!!!!! He is modelling an arran sweater made for him by my daughter. Her first MAJOR knitting project. I am given to understand it went the length of the room in frustration a few times when being started – but she persevered, and the end result is there for all to see. Well done!

So that’s it from me this week folks. I do hope even more can come to the WOYWW crop now the date has been changed – as Julia says, one of those things! Have a good look at her site and see the new date.

Take care everyone. God bless.

    Lovely projects. I admire that your daughter stuck to her knitting project. I had to chuckle at your comment…because several of my projects went the length of the room too. I can so relate. Thanks for sharing your pics!

    You have been busy, Margaret. 150 cards is amazing. Well done you. Having fun with family is the best way of spending time, looks like your daughter has definitely inherited your craftiness, that jumper is great. I envy anyone who can knit, it’s double dutch to me. Thanks for visiting earlier. Hugs Lisax #24

    Brilliant projects Margaret, you’ve certainly been busy! As for Snowdon, I think that would have to be how I would view it too. Your daughter has done a fantastic job. I love arran jumpers and it looks like she went for a complicated pattern too! Have a great week 😀

    Your pergamano card is gorgeous. I’ve made a couple of them, but it’s been a while. Blessings!

    Well, Margaret, what a wonderful catalogue of finished projects this week! All so gorgeous too! It was well worth the effort of doing the card twice because it’s fabulous. Your blanket is quite magnificent too! Thank you for your lovely comment – yes, thank you, I am definitely on the mend now. Happy WOYWW, Shoshi #32

    Happy WOYWW. Your finished blanket looks so cosy – and I see your daughter has inherited your skills with yarn. An arran jumper – that looks incredibly complicated. One of my regrets is that I did not take to knitting/crochet. Always wanted to make my own socks – but I struggle to even do a simple scarf! Sadly the new date for the Crop is still too close to when we go to Spain, and we are flying from Cardiff, so the journey up and down Wales would be too much for me. Ali x #27

    150 cards, amazing. Great sweater, I once had a similar one, wore it till it falled apart that’s how much I loved it, thx for your visit earlier, Vicky

    Hi Margaret, how wonderful about the quilt. Who would have guessed? As it happens, the date change makes things a lot easier for us, although I’d said we were coming, I’d completely forgotten we were supposed to be going back to Paris for our wedding Anniversary, so was trying to work out how to manage it without having to take a bootload of craft stuff to France! Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #8 XxXx

    I see Margaret Junior has picked up your skills – that jumper is totally amazing! WoW! I hope you’re enjoying your travels – after we spoke I see what you mean about the pergamano card – it’s too symmetrical to hide anything isn’t it! It’s as beautiful as I thought it would be – great job!

    Your daughter should be proud of herself, it’s a great jumper. I love the topper on the card, it’s such a cute picture – is it Hunkydory? Sarah #25
