WOYWW454 – rather photo heavy!

1 Comment

Hello my friends. I do trust this finds you well today. I’m struggling to believe we are already halfway through February! Where are the days going?  I have to confess there is absolutely nothing on my desk thus week… so consequently, no desk view. However, there are lots of pictures from my week away.. So, without further ado…

A few days down with LLJ resulted in sides groaning from so much laughter, and lots of cards for her WI.

We had a visit from Ali – producing yet more laughter…

We did find time to make some cards… Folk had been so incredibly generous in donating stash – and we set to, using only a tiny proportion of it all, but having great fun! We only used what had been sent, no diving into cupboards and drawers to see what else we had available!!

From Jan’s I travelled down to my daughter’s home for the baptism by immersion of one of my grand children. An incredible day – and just as wet outside the pool as in!!

Whilst there, my daughter’s MIL handed me another bag filled with a cardigan she had knitted for Uganda,

and two gorgeous children’s blankets she had crocheted. When Mrs D was sorting her home she handed me a whole lot of yarn specially for blankets… so Sue made really good use of some of it!

After a fantastic time away I came home ready to deliver all the cards I had made to the local hotel…

So my desk at home may yet be empty, but I’m sure I shall soon launch in to making something else…

I will be around to visit folk just as soon as I have prepared the worship for Sunday morning – yep… my turn again already!!

Take care my friends. God bless.

    So lovely to get together with other WOYWW-ers, Margaret – you must have had such fun! I am very envious. I’m really glad to hear one of your grandchildren got baptised – what a lovely occasion that must have been for you. Thank you for your lovely comment and lol at the “rose in the mouth episode” haha!! That was a great day, wasn’t it! We had a tremendous time at the show on Thurs. but I suffered for it yesterday so rested all day and let my hubby look after me! Better again today. I’ve blogged about the show and all the wonderful new stash I treated myself to – looking forward to trying it all out soon. Happy belated WOYWW, Shoshi #29

    Maybe no desk to show, but so much activity, icads are indexcards, I use plain 10x15cm ones for my 35 challenge, have a lovely week, Vicky

    Hi Margaret. Lovely photos, and I’m so pleased you had such a great time visiting. I’m sure the blankets will be well appreciated, and the cardigan. Great news that you, Jan and Ali had such fun making the cards, and very pretty they are too! Thanks for stopping by earlier. It would have been lovely to meet at Manchester, Neet said the same! … I was there on the Saturday! Ah well, maybe next time. Have a lovely week Heather #13

    What a great day for your grandson, he must have been thrilled, I don’t know of anyone in the UK that has had such an experience Chris’s yarn and Sue’s stitches look wonderful together don’t they. Am jealous and happy that you had such a grand time with Jan, I can imagine all the laughing. The cards look lovely.

    Happy WOYWW. Another day is slipping by far too quickly, and I am quickly visiting a few blogs before hubby gets in for his lunch. Lovely to meet you finally. I must get hubby to stop enroute to visiting family in Newton le Willows one day, and he can go for a bike ride whilst we chat! Glad that the rest of your trip away went well and you are home safely.

    Glad you enjoyed your trip away, now back to the hard work, if crafting can be called hard work. Love that first card picture. I have stopped making blankets as we have no contact for distribution anymore, they say it is too expensive. Ani #17

    Hi there dear Margaret, well looks like you made safely to LLJan’s there and,back as well as baptism without any incident travel wise in spite of inclement weather which was grand as is the lovely time had by all. Must have been a blessing indeed to have seen your granddaughter follow the Lord in obedience to Him, in baptism. A memory very special love all your cards too they look really great for sale, no wonder they do well. Love the knitting too well done! Prayer hugs dear friend, Shaz in Oz.X #16?

    What a lovely photo of you down at LLJ’s – and such a productive team! Wonderful to have so much laughter with friends that your sides ache. You certainly made an uplifting and productive visit to your daughter’s. The work that you were given is wonderful. Love those blankets. Take care – Margaret – do you ever sit and rest?
