WOYWW 211 - Didn't We Have a Lovely Time......

Hello there
 
What?  Wednesday again!!!  How did that week go so fast?  Time to join in the fun and frolics of WOYWW with the Lovely Julia.  If you want to know more about it, click HERE.
 
If you were here last week, you will know that I was looking forward to the WOYWW crop in Burbage on Saturday.  Well here we all are.....

 
Fergus came too and spent the day supervising me while I chatted and did a teeny amount of scrapbooking in my album.
Here is Helen in her natural habitat...
 
 
Cindy with her box of pwetty flowers...
 
 
Some serious chatting between Michaela and Debbie... Well, it has to be done...
 
 
And moving along the table.....can you see a theme going on here?
 
 
 
The Birthday Girl with her blue hair talking to Fiona....
 
 
And Jan in her natural habitat....behind the counter sorting a superb lunch out...
 
 
Morti looking so studious with her cross-stitch....
 
We really all had a fabulous day.  Short, but fabulous.  Thanks Julia and Jan for hosting this annual event again.  Looking forward to the next one.   Maybe in Autumn?  Hint Hint!!
 
And here is my desk at the moment.  I have quilting on Saturday and was asked if I would show how I do my double edged binding so I am making up some samples so I can show them how I do it.
 
 
I just dug some old snippets out of my basket to use.  The squares will be added to the bunting ready for our next Exhibition in 2017!!  Nowt like starting early ey!
 
 
I managed a sneaky hour on Sunday to work on my Album and unpack some of my kit from Saturday. This is how it looks as at 7 am this morning....
 
And a close up of the previous page which I did on Sunday...
 
 
Sorry this has been a loooong post but I wanted to share some WOYWW Crop photos with you all.  The top one I pinched from LLJ's FB page. 
 
Off to join Julia and the others HERE.  Thanks for staying here so long and please leave me a message so I know you have been.  I will call back to see you later today, once I have finished work!

Natural habitat, my foot!! Only joking, it was fun to do and I really enjoyed seeing everyone gassing away.
I hope people did see your albums because they were amazing, the pair of them :-)
Now that double edged quilting thingy looks interesting. You'll have to show me more!
Hugs, LLJ 15 xx

Fab photos - so glad you all had such a great day. We will get there one day!!! x Jo

Annie said...

I'm now home from a full on 11 hour day with the munchkins....we'e been everywhere and done everything today so I'm just a little tired lol I'm now nipping around the blogs while I can keep the eyes open.
It was so lovely to get a sneaky peep at non posed pics from the crop.....a fab time was had by all it seems [and we will get there one day too I promise].
Hugs,
Annie x #12

Helen said...

well at least I know my place.. the only trouble with working at a desk with stuff on the floor is having to keep getting DOWN to pick it up.. much easier to start on the floor. Great to see you (and Fergus of course) again, hope we can persuade the powers that be for another one before next year!

sue jones said...

Looks like you all had a wonderful time :) I am so impressed with you starting on a project for 2017! I am always behind! Soojay 59#

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Brenda said...

Oh my, looks like such a fun, fun day!!! Glad you ladies enjoyed each other and the day!! Hugs, Brenda

Kathleen said...

Great pictures and your journal and quilting are looking really great.
Didn't you have a lovely time the day you went to Burbage!, not quite as good as Bangor but, I tried.

It looks like you all had great fun.

Bonnie said...

Great fun!!! Love the little "quilts". Wish I could quilt... Pretty yellow and black pages!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I was SO happy you shared photos of the crop. It made me feel like I was there, at least vicariously. Sadly, I didn't get any cake, though.

Your quilt is amazing. I don't make anything I can't tear! But I'm always impressed with what you do.

Hope you got one of my ATCs. Thanks, too, for the earlier visit. Happy day after WOYWW from #1.

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Sam, the rolling pin is available on Amazon.com.- Debbie ordered hers off Etsy, but do not go that way! When we meet again, we'll tell you the story behind it.
Hugs, Shaz xxx

Kim said...

I Love all those photos. So, I'm gathering that if I make it over...bringing supplies/project not so much a concern?? LOL!
Have a great weekend..your quilt piece looks fabulous!

Thanks for your visit today. It really was a good day, wasn't it. Definitely looking forward to whenever the next one will be. You certainly seem to have been busy since you got home. Have fun with it all. xxx Maggie #62

KT Fit Kitty said...

Oh this looks like such a fun group! I wish they had events like that around here! Your desk looks very interesting - I love to snoop and see what`s there! The album looks amazing!

My Card Attic: Hazel said...

What a lovely thing, lots of like minded crafters getting together like that! Looks as if everyone had a wonderful time! Thank you for popping by my blog and your sweet comment Hettie! Hazel xx

Nikki C said...

Wow your quilt is sewn so STRAIGHT !!! I can do a straight line for so long then the next thing I know I'm crooked and have to resew it lol thanks for the visit

Debs Willis said...

Looks like you had a fab time, more nattering than crafting as usual ;-)
Hugs x

Julia Dunnit said...

It's only her natural habitat because paper crafts make her shiver! Glad you enjoyed. And yes, someone seems to have taken your hinting......
As I said on the day, your album is a masterpiece!

Darnell J Knauss said...

These are all so heartwarming, Sam! Thank you for sharing! It's so nice to see Fergus again! And, of course, you damsels don't look half bad yourselves! I love seeing crafty ladies get together. Notice I didn't say "shifty" ladies! And when I say "ladies," this one time I'm including you!! Big hugs, Darnell

scrappymo! said...

My goodness girl...what fun that must have been. I can only dream of being able to go to one!

Your sample quilting edging looks great...you will have to teach the ladies at the lake when you come to Canada!!!

Missed you lately...I think you are not showing up in my blog roll...will check to see what is wrong...I have missed so many posts. Off for a catch up!
