WOYWW 140 - Wednesday Here Again!

Hello Peeps

Well Happy Hump Day to all of you.  Of course it is Wednesday and that means one of two things.  One it is Hump Day - once today is over it is downhill to the weekend - wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!  Two it is WOYWW Day!  I am sure you know what this means but in case you don't it is where some of us (daft) craft bloggers take part in the biggest Blog Hop in the World (probably) with the lovely Julia!!  Click HERE to join in.

Here is my desk.  A little tidy in an untidyish way.  It is just as I left it after finishing my cards for Di's Snippets Challenge.  Di - I will join in the Playground tomorrow!!

Here is a sideways shot....Oops I have not put my stamps away!!

Oh O!  My sins have found me out.  A wine glass (empty I hasten to add).  Whilst shopping in Waitrose on the way home I fancied some fresh mussels.  So I bought some onions, garlic and of course, wine - Cabernet Sauvignon of course.  Well after pouring some in with the mussels I couldn't throw the rest away now could I?  Does wine count as one of our 5-a-day I wonder?  It is grape juice after all.  

The sharp eyed of you may spot I now have two ATG guns.  There is a valid reason for this.  Back at Christmas I used my gun to adhere wrapping paper when wrapping pressies and then wished I had the non acid free refills in there as it was fab - no fighting to cut sellotape, no twisting tape......  Then I happened upon Lyn Elbourne's blog and she was raving about the ATG and gave a link to the 3m site which had an offer on the ATG.  Click HERE if you are interested in buying one.  The ATG guns are on offer at £9.99!!! I paid about £25 for mine!!  So there was my answer.  Buy a new one for me and one for my Buddy for her birthday.  So now I have one for Scrapbooking and the other for Card Making (don't need acid free for cards really).  
Since I made the cards I have been desperately trying to finish this.  It is a short sleeved cardigan which I want to take with me on my holiday which is coming up.  It is knitted in one piece (fronts and back together as one piece) and I am just about to start shaping the neck and armholes.  Wish me luck ey!!  I will show you if and when I finish it!

If you want to see my Chookie Album that I showed on last week's post click HERE to see the post.

Off to work, dancing and then I will join you for the Blog Hop later today.

Happy WOYWW Day!

You call that a LITTLE untidy eh? Never come near my desk as it will look totally sterile to you! xxx

Lunch Lady Jan said...

But which pink gun is which?? Or have you hada cunning plan and sneakily labelled them!! :)
LIke the look of that shrug - that's my sort of knitting, doing it all in one piece. I hate doing sleeves.... Please can you show us the pattern?

Karen said...

Morning Sam, you have a very busy and creative space this week. Love the look of your cardigan and the quilt that's underneath it, did you make it, its gorgeous :)

Have a great WOYWW and a fab week, Luv Karen xxx

Sam said...

Haa Haa! You should see some of the desks where I work, they would freak you out!!

Sam said...

Thanks Karen, yes I made the quilt. I used lots of scraps that when I finish a job I cut into strips! I made it about 18 years ago as a "temporary" cover for the settee which is a little worn and which I am wanting to change for a leather one!! Famous last word that "temporary"!

Sarah said...

Goodness me, I'm surprised you're not roasting a dinner, shearing a sheep and weaving a rug...busy bee - but all very lovely to see...Thanks for letting us look in and peek at your desk... Sarah at 7

lisa said...

Helen said...

I am not sure how many excuses you can get away with in one WOYWW post, but I'll believe you... Have a great day!

Peggy Cain said...

your desk looks like a fun place to spend time. have a good WOYWW

Twiglet said...

Fab post - the knitting looks fab. Of course it counts as one of your 5 a day but just don't have 5 of them!! x Jo

Ann B said...

Have you signed a pact with the devil? You know the ones which give you 48 hours in a day? So much going on and I love 'tidy, untidy' desk. Not only wine glass but a tin of biscuits - I know, you are going to tell me it is empty of chocolate treats and stores your ribbons or some such excuse. Love the quilt by the way, gorgeous.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Oh my gosh! You've been so busy lately. I need to sit down and rest after reading your blog. Knitting! how fun. Lots of creative madness in your neck of the woods.

May said...

Cheers on the wine front, chocolate finger maybe???? your desk is looking well loved and used, Have a great week, Hugs May x x x x x

Polly Polkadot said...

I'm worn out just reading this, you've been busy. I spotted the choccie fingers this week, but maybe because I'm reading this before tea.

Suzilou said...

My gosh Hettie you have been busy on that desk, mind you just glanced at mine and it's not looking much better hehe. Where do you get time to do it all, love the colour of your knitting, you will have to show that off once completed. Roll on the weekend :) xx

That Craft Place Ltd said...

What want to know... are there chocolate fingers in that box, or are you hiding more goodies. Just found your blog and it is so "up my street". Just wanted to say I love your style... your header at the top of your blog, is that your work? If so..... divine.
Am following you now!!!!!!

Oh, love the knitting project. Can't wait to see it finished! Is that a cable stitch I see? As for me, I'm stuck in seed stitch mode!

Your desk is calling to me.......


Lisa said...

Your desks looks like you have been busy. Can't wait to see the shrug finished.

Spyder said...

I've book marked the page Sam and liked it on facebook, coz I know I'll forget where it is...But??? can I do without it?? I do love my photo glue, but they do look soooo 'you must buy me' don't they!
Yes, sooo glad to be back in my own bed, it's been weeks! but S-I-L- keeps threatening to do her self in now...and she get soooo angry, she hates us being there and hates us for not being there and I can't help being messy!! (I moved my laptop in on her dining table on last weeks woyww) ( was just a crumb from the chocolate cake, honest!) a Have a great crafty week HaPpY WoYwW


Stephanie said...

I don't mind a little untidy. If I did, I'd definitely have a problem with MYSELF. Looks like you have fun anyway!

Jules said...

Hi Sam

Looks like you have lots of scrummy projects on the go.

I'm not a "very" tidy crafter but do have to have slightly more clear space to work in. I get distracted if there as too many things around and about me. LOL!!

I thought the glass was perhaps what you put your water in for using your watercolour pencils etc!

Love Jules xx

p.s. yes I spied the hearts on the back of your chooks book. xx

Julia Dunnit said...

I thought I was experiencing double vision!! I'm so proud to have rubbed off on you, not putting stamps away, overdraft, joining my club!

Bridget Larsen said...

Craftgirl said...

Love your chookie album. I spy 2 ATG guns:-)
Busy desk means fab works of art.
happy belated WOYWW

Mrs A. said...

Thats a really good idea to have two guns on the go especially at that price. I'm sure wine counts as part of the 5 a day or else I'm in big trouble.Lol. hugs Mrs A. p.s knitting looks intriguing.

Jackie said...

Wow, that is one very busy desk. Thanks for sharing!

okienurse said...

great idea for the ATG! I will have to get a second one! great looking the creativity there! Sorry I am so late getting around but it was such a busy week in my life!
Just a reminder about the blog candy...I have had such a favorable response that I have decided to increase the number of possible winners of prizes! Everyone is eligible cause I will ship overseas too! Vickie #50

Elizabeth said...

Hi Sam, just dropping in late to say thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your kind comment ... you're desk looks as busy as ever to me. I see these ATG guns on a lot of WOYWWers' desks but don't have one of my own yet ... might add it to my growing wishlist though, or should that be two :)) Elizabeth x #2
