WOYWW '71'

I had a fab time this weekend at LB Crafts, Lin is a brilliant teacher and believe you me it is well worth the drive because this is what I made...............
and now for my desk, I went for the long shot this week so you can see all the mess!!
My WIP Christmas arch has finally got some metal on and with any luck it will be finished by next week!!
Short and sweet from me this week as I have to leave for work in 10mins and I've still got my PJ's on!

See you later..........A.xx

P.S. If you've arrived here on the off chance and are wondering what's going on hop over to Julia "Queen of the WOWWers" blog to find out what it's all about. Link is on the side of my blog.

I am loving hopping around and looking at everyones desks and works of art. Your workdesk is fabulous....I am impressed with the way you store your sticky tapes as mine are just in a box and I can never reach them quickly when I need them....I am definitely going to be borrowing your idea!! Thanks also for popping over to look at my workdesk this week, I really appreciate it.
Love

Andrea, I sure love that wall hanging. I can see why you are happy with it. There's so much to see in it and it is rich with detail.

That Christmas arch is coming together nicely. Can't wait to see the end result. Happy WOYWW from number 2.

Hi Andrea
Your wall-hanging is truly amazing and worth any length of drive. Your desk looks a bit like mine often does and what a clever way to store all your rolls of tape.
Have a great week

Love your WIP but the piece you made at LB is amazing. Everyone who attends just loves Lynne's classes and one day I get to one but I'd have to do over 200 miles! Great working mess!
Thanks for calling in on me!
