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....

Thank you so much for your visit today...looking forward to see what you are up this week x x x x x

Oh, I think you and I would get on famously, May! I love your fabric and yarn storage, so beautiful - I'd love to come over and have a rummage, lol! The offer is reciprocated btw :-D Though my craft room is much untidier....... The pic on your computer screen is very charming, I enjoyed examining it minutely ;-)

Hello May, wow what a fab crafting space and packed to capacity as they tend to be. Lots of lovely material I'm spying, especially the lace.
Well done you on taking retirement, but a bunner that the pension age changed goalposts. I only got my state pension in March, but had bee made redundant 18 months ago and decided I wan't going to look for something else at the age of 62. like you I worked hard for 42 years, sometimes two jobs to make ends meet. I'm still furious that the government has got away with this. as far as I'm concerned I made a deal with them when I first started work that I would pay my taxes and whatever in return for a pension at 60. Sorry for the rant, terrible for many people, men too. Anyway, I hope you are well and enjoying life, Kate x

Hello May,

I must confess, I click on the images to make them bigger than I go back to the post and read. I about fell off my chair when I saw "the hunk" on your screen saver. I'm at work so that would have been a disaster!! tee hee

I need to make a decision on where my art will lead me. Like you, I'm retiring soon and would like something to focus on. Right now I knit, make jewelry, take photos, mixed media and getting back into cardmaking. This makes for a lot of supplies! I love your craft room and how you have it organized. The shelves with the various doilies hanging on them is so beautiful!!

Your heart is precious, by the way.

Peace, Kay (43)

I am looking forward to seeing what you create with that stash of pretty doilies.... it's going to be a stunning keepsake book.Thank you for sharing your creative space with us and the hunk was a bonus :-) have a fabulous week, crafty hugs Andrea #10

OK so last week it was a cute baby to steel the show now a hunky guy - sigh!
Love the heart and your room looks like a treasure trove.

Thanks for reminding me I need to sort my voluntary NI contributions out to get a near full pension when I'm 67yrs!!

Amazing crochet doilies, super fabrics and I believe I'm crispy too!! First 10 minutes is rather interesting seeing me get around then I seem to be OK.

Anyway thanks for visiting me BJ#5

What a lovely, happy cheery studio May to create in. I wish you luck with your new sewing adventures. I am married to my sewing machine and even have a spare if my main one plays up!I can see your new obsession for fabric starting! Fabric has been one of my greatest passions for many years and I have a huge stash behind doors too but it gets pulled out frequently!
Thanks for you kind comment!

Redanne said...

You really did make me smile May, every available inch of space is occupied in your lovely craft room! I love it, so much to see, I just want to reach out and touch some of that crafty fabric! I can now envision you spending some wonderful crafty hours in there. The lace looks beautiful and will make a wonderful memory book for your new Granddaughter. Hugs, Anne xx
