WOYWW #208

Ho! ho! ho!
We're here and I will attempt to take a badge - learning curve me thinks!

My workdesk is not actually mine this week - it belongs to DH, but I have 'borrowed' the flat bit........  ta da!

See the white sheeting, white plastic, African parcel?  
See the machine and threads and scissors?
Gonna make sheet bag for inside my sleeping bag with the sheeting and everything else will combine to make a case for my laptop and bits.
That is the theory ......... check back on my other blog and see if I succeeded!
Have a good WOYWW everyone!

I have ATCs to swap if anyone wants to- drop me a comment and I'll get back to you.

I managed to finish the bag - very pleased I am with it - don't ask for the pattern...... I tend not to use one!!!  The bag is now posted.


  1. The badge grabbing is easy, honest! Happy WOYWW Helen, 39

  2. Hi there Christine - You are the gal next to me on the WOYWW list with a * ... that means I have an ATC for you! Could you please email me your postal address? marit[at]maritspaperworld[dot]com Happy woyww, Marit #88

  3. Hi Christine thanks for paying me a visit, I will email you my addy and I would like to send you an ATC in return, so if you could forward your info that would be great. I too have a thing about ginger cats we also have Jasper's brother Rufus, they are totally different in fact the only thing they have in common (apart from being related) is that they are both ginger. lol
    Happy art making

  11. Happy 4th ...I think it is amazing that we have reached 4 and are still going. It all started with scrappers and card makers but as it grew to this heady number with so many arts and crafts to see... not forgetting ladies who bake ....glad you enjoyed the tea bread was even better on the second day.xx71

  12. I'm so impressed with you ladies who sew! BTW, if you want to be able to click on your button and have it take you to Julia's blog you should go to the "Add Picture" gadget on your layout page. There you can hit the browse button to find and insert your picture and it also has a place to type in the URL for Julia's blog so the button will then act as a link. Clear as mud? lol!

  13. You sound like you are firing on all cylinders Christine,
    How exciting is that? You've got your badge and finished the bag! What a woman! ;D
    Congratulations...don't you just love discovering and learning new things everyday.
    I know all about borrowing desks as I'm using a rental one at the moment plus borrowing a laptop. Needs must and all of that!
    Thanks for popping over to my place's always wonderful to have visitors.
    Have a great week and an even better weekend whatever you have planned! :D

  14. OOps forgot to say Happy 4th WOYWW.

  16. I know I’m a day late but I’m trying to make it around everyone this week.
    It’s going to take some time, but I wanted to say that it’s amazing that the internet can bring together so many likeminded people and I’m grateful that WOYWW has also brought along so many new friends, thanks to Julia.

    Well, it looks like DH has a very busy desk this week Christine, thanks to you!

    Enjoy your weekly snoop, especially as we’re celebrating WOYWW’s 4th Anniversary.
    Happy Crafting!

    whatever it is, thanks for sharing it,
    Happy Belated WOYWW 4th Anniversary
