WOYWW 152 - a bit of this and a lot of that...

Hello everyone.   Yep, once again, time to link up with Julia at Stamping Ground where it all begins.  This is a best day of the week for blog hopping.

My friend Dawna and me with her baby blanket.  
I'm so glad that I made this for her and her husband.
kind of blurry.....
Now, what's on my desk.  Lots of stuff.  Some rubber stamps, jewelry that I've been making based on pinterest.  Colored pencils, paint brushes and an assortment of pens.

Thanks for stopping by.    I will try to visit everyone that visits me and then those that have the same ending number.   Please leave your number with your comment - that way I can find you! 

I hope the rest of your week is full of craftiness!

Peace,
Kay

Well done with the baby blanket Kay, it looks great and looking at the photo I would say your friend loves it :) I am intrigued as to what that is on your second desk photo, the round, tallish container in the middle?? Sorry just being a bit nosey, LOL!!

Have a fab WOYWW and a lovely week, Hugs, Karen xx

Hi Kay - I raced over here from Spyder's place to tell you something urgent. A dongle is a little gadget you plug into IT based kits to pick up/boost poor internet signals - if you're in a field like Lyn. Phew - glad that's cleared up :)

Wow, as Annie says - so many brushes.

I read all the NM stuff thoroughly the other day - preliminary checks are being made :) Most importantly, I need to know something about timings from a local perspective so will email you honey.

Am surfacing from the misery thankfully :)

Hugs, Di xx

PS - so worried about the dongle business I forgot to add I'm at 49 this week. Di xx

What an intereting way to pick whom you visit that week. Must try that sometime. Looks like you are getting ready for a creative art session.

I love your messy desk . . . a messy work surface means a creative mind is at work. Have an incredible day, and I'm looking forward to some of your finished projects. Connie :) #152

What is the rack of hanging bits on your desk? It looks like a jewelry display thing. Very interesting. I like your cups of coloring devices. That's a great photo.

Love your desk - lots of lovely stuff to play with there methinks. Sorry frgot my number. Anyway thanks for sharing. Anne x

Hazel said...

Lots of lovely goodies in your workspace - thanks for sharing - Hazel, WOYWW #10 x

Annie said...

Thanks for the offer of some wool. I can't find your email address here anywhere to email you. The fish and chip jumpers and little hats are really easy to knit so why not have a go. You only need to be able to knit, purl and cast on and off. You can use up any bright/darker colours you've got cos they don't get washed often :-( Our babies have so very much and it breaks my heart to think of them being wrapped up in newspaper. Thanks for getting in touch.
Hugs,

Neet said...

Hi Kay

Congratulations on the blanket, no wonder Dawna and DH were happy with it, it is a true work of art, beautiful. I'm not on Pinterest but on something else similar - with an elephant?
Thanks for commenting on my blog earlier, I am so behind, just starting out. Hugs Neet #27

Hi Kay, thanks for paying me a visit, and becoming a follower :-)
Your desk looks very arty with your paintbrushes and pens and I'm loving your necklaces they are gorgeous. I like the DP at the back of your desk, what is it?, and what sort of bird do you have? Oh dear I sound very nosy.
Apologies for being behind with my posting, I don't know where the days go.
Hope you had a happy weekend
Hugs

I love all your photos, and I would imagine that a lot of them could end up in your projects, especially that one with the windmill against the sky. Thank you for your visit and I am sorry it has taken so long to return to you. Life is just getting too hectic, making hard to find time to even craft. That was a wonderful looking craft fair, hope you found lots of ideas and goodies. See you again soon. xx Maggie #93
