WOYWW #265

Thank you Julia for being here for us, or there, or where ..... oh! in the chair .........

What's on my workdesk?
And here's why .....

I am enjoying myself tremendously making these little blankets for Premature Babies.  I have managed to use up some 'bits' of wool as well as investing in a couple of B I G balls of speckled wool - another seven into the pot - and that's not brown it is red, funny photo colours!!!

We have had a couple of days in Wales and I just have to show you what luggage I used .....

Can you see that smashing silk bag in the pocket on the front?  It is just the right size for all my new tablets ...... isn't that brilliant!!
Thank you Patsy for this wonderful prize, it is perfect.

Won't be visiting until Thursday this week, I have to get the gardens at the steam trains works ready for Open Day.  Woo!  Hoo!

Thank you again for all your wonderful comments and support  - I am enjoying the pink hair immensely ........ I have to say  .. wish I had done it earlier!!!  LOL

Enjoy the week and see you soon ......


  1. wow Christin what a wodnerful gift that is .. so very thrilled for you dear kind Patsy.. lovely wee blankies on desk. Happy WOYWW Shaz in oz.x no number yet

  2. Hi Christine, busy lady with the premmie blankets and then off to garden..hope the open day goes well. Happy WOYWW and have a super week RobynO#8

  3. Now you see? It pays to actually READ the post - I get some comments (although not usually WOYWW ones) where is it so obvious the people looked at the photos and never read a word of it. I looked and though "cute dish cloths" in an instant, and then READ it to find they are preemie blankets! DOH. Whatever they are they are cute and colourful and I bet fun to make!

    Happy WOYWW!

  5. Glad you're enjoying making the premmie blankets and your pink hair. I was only thinking about it this afternoon when I saw a young girl with dipped ends. Would I dare do that I was thinking and then I remembered our lovely pink locks. So glad you're enjoying them.
    Have a lovely week

  8. Gardens, steam trains, weekends away and preemie blankets...never a dull moment for you! I presume there's an ongoing need for the blankets Christine, so forgive me if there's a satellite delay between now and me getting something made!

  9. Oh! I missed the pink hair! Just been to have a look - fabulous- really suits you! Enjoy your garden tidying! Love those little blankets, Chrisx75

  12. Hi Christine,

    The baby blankets are adorable. Are they crochet? I am bound to learn.... I hear it's faster than knitting.

    I love your quote by your "About Me" photo. Since I've been diagnosed with several auto-immune diseases, and feeling sorry for myself, I've finally snapped out of it and would love to use your slogan too. Would you mind?

    Happy belated WOYWW
    Peace, Kay (60)


I make my cards for sheer pleasure so thank you for taking the time to comment.
