WOYWW.... 419

Happy WOYWW to all, Thank you so much for my lovely comments last week on my sweet baby Grandchild.. I'm still working on the heart I am waiting from Mr Postie to deliver the Bias Binding I have ordered for it... I did buy a bias binding maker... but it's still in the packet I will need a play with it before using!!
As some of you know from my past on this wonderful get together at WOYWW I was a paper craft addict But now I am spending my time learning more about sewing so far I am really enjoying this wee journey... I took retirement from the NHS after forever as a Nursing sister I turned 60 a few months back... no pension as yet even though I have paid for the state pension for 42 years not allowed that one till I'm 66... anyway doing good on my NHS pension... that's why I went to spend more time with my family and have more time to play in my crafty space.... So this is on my wish list to get to grips with sewing... I like the idea of mini quilts to start with .. so wish me luck... so a few photos of my sewing crafty space...I sold most of my crafty bits to fund my new obsession... Hope I don't bore you all here is a peek at my desk etc

Hopefully the heart will be complete by next Wednesday  when the bias binding arrives
 Now this is my desk....I said desk I hope you are not looking at the hulk on my computer screen!!!! Well come on ladies and gents we all need to look at something when we are busy creating.... My husband just laughs he's got used to him I read lots of books for reading groups and he is used a lot on the covers so  harmless fun....
 another angle of the crafty space
 This bunch of doily's I have two drawers packed with them I have saved over the years I plan to make a keepsake book for my little Granddaughter soon  Washed and ready to go

 Some more stash either gifts or I have bought Shhhh behind those curtains I made to hide all those drawers they are full of fabrics our secret...
 The other side of the room were my iron is & wool etc..
 Behind the door we need every inch of space as you all know
 Across from the other shelf's and beside computer my DH put these up for me a long time ago
 my wool stash etc
 This little saying I tell my self every morning...Do you agree!!!
Well why is this crazy women showing her crafty space... It's all down to the queen of Desk our JULIA over at WOYWW... pop over all shall be revealed so join in and enjoy the visits to the worlds desks....

Hi Everyone,
I've made it back for another week long may it last I missed you all.. I want to Thank you all for the kind comments left last week on my return from being missing in action for so long... What a wonderful welcome Thanks & squishes x x x x

This week on my desk is a large heart template I got free from the internet as I want to make a mini wall hanging with a quilt type background for my new Granddaughter for her room.. never made one before just saw this idea on Pinterest.. 

that is a A4 piece of paper so the heart is large so I traced this onto some Vliesofix and added the assorted pink fabric never used Vliesofix before but I watched a video on You tube.....  I could not survive without it good old you tube has taught me so much
 after ironing in place and cutting to size and peeling it off hey presto... it's no way near finished but I hope to be working on it this week to get it ready for her room....
 and here she is the STAR of the show my Beautiful Granddaughter EVA  So now I am a proud Nanny to  two gorgeous Grandsons and a little Princess   I'm such a lucky lady
