WOYWW 160 - Sorry I am Late Miss

Hello there Peeps

Today is Wednesday and I had every good intention of posting my desk up nice and early this morning for the weekly WOYWW blog hop, but I truly have extenu exenu errrr special circumstances.  Miss! I woke up early and for some reason I immediately looked at my phone and saw a text message which started sorta......."don't panic but....had a bit of a mishap...."!  My day got changed!  I drove down to Morriston Hospital, Swansea, where Hubby had been taken, to meet up with him and wait........

I will spare you the gorey details but his index finger is now 1/2" shorter than it was when he went to work yesterday evening!  

So now we are safely back at home I can now post my desk up for all to see....

Urm, my clock was correct (but then if it had stopped it would be correct twice a day!), those are holly leaves from the Tim Holtz lamppost die for my Chris Rudolph Day cards HERE (I still have the other six to do!), red Liquid Pearls from making the berries on the holly leaves, bits of red card left over and ready to make the next cards, the card on the right just above the die is from Karen in Canada, in which was my WOYWW ATC, the photo to the left of that is one of my Father-in-Law, which I got out to scrapbook, post it pad to mask off the sides of the cards I am making and some string next to my distress applicator spinner - always useful string!

So, there you have my desk today.  Not sure it will be changing much tonight as I just want to sit with a cup of tea in a real bone china mug and do some blog hopping via the lovely Julia!

Oh! and a special thanks to the guys and gals at Morriston Hospital.  They were rather great and looked after us well.



P.S.  If you are looking for Monkey, he is sat on my other desk waiting for me to start machine sewing again! He likes watching the sewn fabric coming through the machine!! Honest!

Hi Hettie Poor Hubby hope the painkillers are working! ouch.

Thanks for popping in to see me. I actually wouldn't mind helping you tidy - get to nosy for real then - gotta be coffee and cake though. I followed the link to the cards you made for the challenge - they are lovely - great theme. WOYWW Hugs from Helen 89

Ouch kinda sounds sore:( Your poor hubby, hope he is well soon. Your card on your desk is beautiful. Hope your week gets better.

podgypanda said...

Well Hettie a good reason for not crafting I think. Perhaps you should make hubby a card to record the day he lost a dearly loved part of himself!!!
Have a good week

Yikes missus! Not a nice way to wake up! Hope hubby is ok. I tried very hard to cut the top of my finger off about 11 years ago, and you know what? If I catch it in an odd way it still hurts!! Have a wonderful weekend.

Oh Sam, what a day you've had and poor Hubby, sounds painful. I hope you've given him a bit of extra special TLC and both had a cuppa in a nice cup or even something a bit stronger.
I had to blow your desk up, not literally of course, to have a closer look at that photo you're going to scrap. He looks a very elegant man, your FIL. I shall look forward to seeing the page.
Sorry to be so late getting round, I seem to do nothing but chase my tail lately.

Eliza said...

I do hope your hubby is feeling better soon, what a horrible experience. Love the desk in it's glory especially the craft spinner, I have just ordered one of them for myself.

I do hope your situation improves. I hope you get some crafting done this week.


karen said...

I am sorry to hear of your hubby's accident. I hope he is doing okay now. I missed WOYWW or I would have sent well wishes sooner. At least he has a great nurse to help him :)

Oh dear. I hope he's healing up well. That must hurt like ...
You know.

Smart thinking on the pearl drops for holly berries. I seem to recall I wasn't happy with whatever efforts I made last year so I'm going to try this, too. Thanks!

Your visit is much appreciated!
