WOYWW 117 - Happy Wednesday Everyone!!

Hi there Peeps.  Here we are again - Wednesday.  And what does that mean I hear you ask - it's time for WOYWW with the lovely Julia Dunnit. 

So on today's desk you will see on the left some dividers for a little address book I am making and the white sheet with blue flowers on are to decorate some of the dividers, once I have cut them out and maybe inked them a little more.  I have stamped each divider with letters of the alphabet, having first used my white dabber on so that the letters show up.  The clock says 11.12 as it has done for a few days now.  Shows how much notice I take of the time!!  Even when the clock is correct I tend to ignore it!!  Note to self - sort some batteries out!

Holding the paper down is my lovely lickle Mr Michelmas.  He arrived at my home last Thursday all the way from Canada from the lovely Karen.  You may recall this POST back in June.  Well blow me Karen offered to make me one as I thought they were supercute and post it to me.  Only when she sent me an e-mail to tell me she would wait until the postal strike was over did I realise that she lived in Canada!!  How kind is Karen? And, how lucky am I? 

Well after a long journey and many many weeks in his little box, he arrived.  He actually resides in my kitchen on a little shelf so that he can see what goes on in the Madhouse.  He was very well packed and came with a gorgeous hand made card as well as a Cat stamp.  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Karen. 

In fact, I want to thank all of you lovely people who have either followed me, or left messages on my little blog since I started it earlier this year.  Today's posting is my 100th!!  Woo Hoo!!  I must say that when I started my blog I could not have imagined the lovely people I would "speak" to on a regular basis, the inspirational projects I would see and the kindness I would be part of.  Thanks to all of you.  I have enjoyed every comment I have ever received and I am grateful for all the words of encouragement.  I especially want to thank Julia for hosting this wonderful world of WOYWW as it is mainly her (fault) and a few other blogs that made me want to jump into this blogging world.

Well, here is to the next century of postings! 

Crafty Hugs to you all!


P.S.  Internet is still very flaky so have had to post this in work - again.  If I do not get round to visit you today I will do hopefully after the man from BT has been on Friday!!

Hi Sam! Isn't Mr Michelmas great :) I laughed about the clock - one evening I was surfing - as you do - and thought I was getting tired - the clock had stopped in here and it was almost 2am!! Di xx

Wow! Congrats on the 100th post!! Mr. Michaelmas sure is cute! My Sister In Law's Cousin is terrified of gnomes!! So of course, my Brother and SiL are constantly sending them to her, via other people so the postmark is always weird! LOL! Have a great Wednesday (well, almost over for you--lucky duck!)

Congrats of your 100th post and I look forward to reading many more.

Have a good week and…………
Happy Crafting!

Happy 100th, Hettie!! Congrats on reaching the milestone - I've got a way to go yet, but know exactly what you mean about the support and camaraderie of WOYWW - it's wonderful! I'm very envious of your gnome, he's rather gorgeous!!! Hugs, LLJ xx

Hi Sam. love Mr Michelmas, he's just so cute. I don't take much notice of the time at all so that clock wouldn't even be on my desk! If it wasn't for my DH I'd rarely eat - he's the one that gets hunger pangs :) Congratulations on your 100th post and speaking of kind and friendly people, many thanks for all the lovely comments you've left on my posts, they are all appreciated. Here's to your 200th post. Elizabeth x #51

Love your blog header - one of my most used quotes and all the things I like are there in it. And I am no sewer!
Love your Mr Michelmas, hope he has settled in this new country he has arrived at.
Thanks for sharing - Hugs, Neet x #5

Thank you for your visit earlier. Sorry it has take so long to get back. Love that cherry Mr Michaelmas, but he has depressed me a little, reminding me how our summer has vanished for this year. We must try to get away for a short time, at least, before winter really sets in.

Hi Hettie,
This is certainly a lovely 'space' to frequent, and I'm happy to return after a busy spell away too. The gnome is very cute and must have been a really lovely surprise.
