WOYWW 30th April


Here is my WOYWW (What's On Your Workbench Wednesday).  If you want to know more about this weekly event, take a look at Julia's blog http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk



My mojo has done a runner, so all I have on my desk are three crafting magazines.

I only buy them when the freebies are worth it.


I hope you all have a fab WOYWWednesday.

Hope you have had a good week and you are enjoying the weekend.


Took these photos recently.

Polly in dad's garden on a nice sunny day.






Albe enjoying dad's chair.




Albe in the kitchen when I was cooking a roast chicken:)

I hope you all have a good week.

Remember to hug your hound/s.

I hope you have had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend.

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny dry day, but it's dismal with a dampness in the air today.



This was the scene the other day.  Poor Ducky had been de-stuffed.



The culprit pretended to be asleep.




Took this one of Albe in Polly's bed at dad's the other day.  He was fast asleep and snoring:)



You all take care and remember to hug your hound/s.

WOYWW 23rd April

Here is my WOYWW (What's On Your Workbench Wednesday).  If you want to know more about this weekly event, take a look at Julia's blog http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk


These are the cards from last weeks WOYWW now all made up.  Some are made with Toppers I've received in a Swap and others are from old cards.







This one is for a card swap.  The theme was pastels.



I hope you all have a lovely WOYWWednesday.

Hope you are all having a good week.  Weather has been changeable here and even when sunny we've had a cold wind.


Here was Polly last Wednesday.  She was sure there was a little critter in the under growth.



It went overcast, but Polly still wanted to stay out.






Albe loves to go in the bushes:)



Hope you all have a good week.

Hope you are all having a lovely Easter.

Here's a video I took of Polly last Wednesday.  

Before you all ask me what is she doing, I have no idea, but she seemed to enjoy it:) LOL

Here is my WOYWW (What's On Your Workbench Wednesday).  If you want to know more about this weekly event, take a look at Julia's blog http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk



These are the gubbins for 7 birthday cards.  Hopefully I'll get them made up over the next few days.



This is a blanket I have been crocheting.  Strictly speaking it's not on my desk, but I sometimes sit at my desk doing it, whilst watching catch up TV on my PC.




I hope you all have a wonder WOYWWednesday.

Hope you all have a fab Friday and are looking forward to the weekend.

WOYWW 9th April

Here is my WOYWW (What's On Your Workbench Wednesday).  If you want to know more about this weekly event, take a look at Julia's blog http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk




All I have on my desk are four Toppers for a swap.  The theme was animals.  In this photo there is also a Car Topper which I received in a swap, which I made into the card below.


I put the Car Topper onto some gold coloured paper and then mounted it onto the card.  This is for a swap where the theme is Transport.


I hope you all have a fab WOYW Wednesday.


Sunday, 6 April 2014

I hope you have all had a good week and are enjoying the weekend.

I was over at my dad's yesterday and took photos of the garden and also managed to get two videos.  One is of Polly doing zoomies and the other of Albe playing fetch with me.  I'll get the videos downloaded and then on here in the next few days.

In the meantime here is dad's garden.



A stone trough with small Conifers.  Four of the Conifers were planted in this year, as the others had died.  The one at the front hanging down is the only original left.


Small Cherry Tree now showing open blossom.


Think these are some sort of Narcissus. 


Not sure on everything that's in this corner of the garden.  Bottom left is a new Foxglove planted within the last couple of weeks.  The taller plant next to it I think is a Hydrangea. 


This corner has an old Lilac, which is just showing leaf.  On the left there is a Climbing Rose and an ordinary Rose.  These were both planted last year.  The old Plum Tree (with the green netting on it) is now used for a Passion Flower.  Dad's not sure if it has survived, as there's no shoots yet.


The Apple Tree showing leaves.


This is a Peony.


The Roses I mention earlier.  This year will be the first time they flower.


Cycleman.  Two on the right have lovely little flowers and the plants have grown.  The one on the right isn't so happy.


This is a new plant that dad put in on Friday.  Don't know what it is.


This is the trunk of the old Willow.  The Willow died, but dad left the trunk to put climbers up it.  There are two Honeysuckles going up it.  The one on the right dad only put in last week.


Don't know what this shrub is, but the yellow pompoms are lovely.


A Climbing Rose dad put in last year.  There's another one going up the other side of the arch. 


Dad loves pottering in his garden.  He does have a gardener coming in once a week to mow the lawns, cut the edges keep the hedges cut and any other more manual work.  Considering my dad will be 88 this September, he does well to put the plants in and potter like he does.

Hope you've enjoyed the little tour round the garden.


You all take care.

Not much on my desk this week.  These piles are old card fronts.  I was going through them to see what I could re-use. 


I hope you all have a fab WOYW Wednesday.
