WOYWW, Getting things ready for the crop!

Good morning my bloggy friends!

I am saying good morning but is it really? Very dark here today! It was lovely sunshine yesterday and this morning we wake up to this misery! Huh - I guess I haven't got used to English weather yet!
Ok then lets get up to some proper WOYWW business and show what is on my desk! Well I am getting ready for the Jan's and Julia's crop - they call it the WOYWW crop but really they do all the work so it is their crop! I am making halloween tags - I will be honest with you I am not really much into Halloween but it is a challenge and I like a challenge! So here is my desk with some of my Halloween tags! I bought a few stamps and other bits - spiders and stuff and well I hope the tags come out spooky! :-) By the way that heart doesn't have chocolate in it - just sequins! Wish there was chocolate!

I have also made a card using Brusho! As you know I went to the Happy Stampers Festival recently and I bought some Brusho crystal colors. I don't know many techniques so I just put water on some water color paper and then tapped my Brusho colors on top and watched the amazing effect! I die cut the leaves (Lil' inker dies) because the colors reminded me of autumn leaves! Used a bit of vellum, a lovely sentiment from Najlepši par, embossing powder,  some sequins and there you are a nice card for my 86 year old auntie!

On the quilting side of things I got back my quilt from the quilting place and it is really lovely - I have to bind it now and I will show it when it is finished! I have also joined a hand sewing quilting club - just to refresh my hand sewing skills! I have so many projects on the go, which you will hear about in due course!
  I will keep this short because last week was a really long post - he, he I don't want to upset our boss Julia :-) !
Have a lovely week! Last week I didn't get round to much of you but I will hopefully this week!
Lots of hugs to all of you,

  4. What a beautiful card! Sadly I won't be at the crop this time as I'm travelling up to Newmarket to take Keagan to the British Racing school where he is going to study for 3 and half months. Happy Back to the Future day! Take care Zo xx 44

  5. Wow they were quick at that quiltng place Dolores - I always thought they took ages. The big machines are amazing aren't they - certainly saves hours of work - looking forward to seeing it. x Jo
