WOYWW

Hello Wednesday workdesk hoppers. How are you  all? First let me avail you of the lovely contents that were in Annies blog competition (they were on my workdesk Wednesday evening last after all ;)


All stunning creations made by Annie herself. The felted card and picture are just beautiful. My favourite thing of all is Cyril the bear (who comes with his own adoption certificate :) I for one will be toddling along to the sisters crafty creations shop when I am looking for a little something special for someone! As for this week:


At the back left was the Brazilian 'eye' flag that I created for Darcy's postcard challenge last week, it sits on top of a paper dragon, one of which found its way to a friends house where we celebrated the Chinese New Year with friends. To the right of my little netbook is the start of my mouthy stitches pouch swap creation ( and if you look up at the top you can see the Daffodils in their new home :) The stuff laid out at the front is ready to work on my postcard for this week - China.

So just before I head you on your way to Julia's gateway to WOYWW extravaganza (link on the right) firstly if you like sewing and fabric see the previous post.  More importantly - drum roll please................


THE FLAT IS SOLD - yehaa, Monday at 11am it became the property of someone else and good riddance! There is still some healing to do (and may well always be a little) but as a wise friend pointed out recently there is no point holding tight to the past it gets you no where.  It will take us a large number of years to recoup are losses but we dream of our own house by the sea someday and what is a person without their dreams?

I'm so pleased that the flat has gone - now you're free of that weight, onwards and upwards to a happier place :)
I like the resolve to sew idea - look forward to seeing a tunic in the future!

Well done on selling the flat - what a relief. Put it behind you and move on. The outfits on my blog are full size for a 4 year old - so just a bit bigger than doll's clothes -lol. Glad you liked Annie's parcel of goodies - the little feltie bear is cute isn't he.

Wonderful to hear about the flat and your prize from Annie is wonderful. Your luck is in and I hope it gets better and better.
I showed Donna and her son my Pogo and he thoughtfully contacted me for details and surprised her with one for Christmas. How lovely is that!!??
Hope you are all feeling better by now!
