For those who do not know what WOYWW stands for, take a trip over to Julia's blog, Stamping Ground, and she will explain all the details.

I hope you enjoyed that trip and will be joining in with us on our tour around crafty workspaces each week.

I have been busy with crafting this week.  Various cards and notecards finished, my latest cross stitch project nearly finished ....

Here are some piccies -

My almost-finished stitching project.  The next project is
bought (well, the chart) and will be started soon.

The end of my desks where everything gets piled up!
Shows the gorgeous Kanban card and Papermania glitter vellum that
jumped into my shopping bag at our local craft shop yesterday.
Plus the cheap set of colouring pencils from WH Smith - they
may be cheap, but lovely
 selection of colours.

The other end of my desks next to my PC.
Various finished cards (2 of which are swap cards from other
very talented crafters), one nearly-finished card,
and my cute Momjii.
Happy WOYWW to all those that I do not manage to visit.
