WOYWW, Not coming to the crop!

My dear WOYWW friends!

I haven't been blogging much this year! Actually I just looked and I have posted twice! I am not giving up blogging it is just at the moment I am struggling with constant pain and just can't do much! 
I do look at your blogs sometimes but I don't really engage! Still I am hoping to have my operation soon! I am trying to lose weight but it is a struggle! I have been swimming and dieting but it is a slow process! Anyway I was going to come to the crop ! So about 2 weeks ago I said to my Alan
 " Have a look for hotel in  Llandudno !" 
" When is the crop then ?" he says.
"Sometime end of September begin of October I think -  let me check!"
And then the shock! It was 8th of September!!!! We are still in Slovenia and will be almost till the end of September as I am waiting for news on my operation!
So sad! I think this is the first time I will not be able to come to the crop! And to be honest it is one of the highlights of my crafty year! I have actually been making these ATCs for the crop - I even ventured into making quilted ones - and have been very proud to be so brave!

Here is the set of the paper ones I made....

and here are my quilted ones....

I hope there will be a report on the crop and I will be able to see some photos on your blogs! I will be waiting for the news!
My desk has this really tiny space as I have stuff everywhere! But I enjoy making things at my old desk! There is no place like home! (says Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz)
I have a lot of the new Distress Oxide inks - I love them - I think they are wonderful - and I love that you can stamp with them! 

I have got into water coloring and I have bought 2 sets of them Koi and Altenew! I still can't decide which ones are better!

So there you see I am still making stuff - I try to make something every day - even if it is something small...
Have a lovely week - the ladies going to the crop have a wonderful time - wish I could be with you - I will be thinking of you! 
Stamping Ground - Queen Julia here I come! :-)
Love and hugs to all of you,


  1. sorry you are still in such pain. hope you get the date for your op soon. I won't be at the crop either, can't get the trains to work in time... maybe next year! Loving the atcs though Helen #1

  2. I'm so sorry you won't be at the crop this Saturday - but yes, I'm sure the cameras will be in full-time action! Sorry, too, that you are in so much pain - I trust you hear about your op soon, and so are soon able to really engage with everything.
    Take care. God bless.

  5. Sorry to hear about your pain, so much discomfort for you. I hope your op date will come round soon like next years crop which i'm sure you will attend.
    Your ATC's are fabulous.
    Thank you for sharing WOYWW Tracey #6

  6. Happy Belated WOYWW. Sorry to hear you are in pain and waiting for your operation. I will not be at the Crop either - too far to drive and a very long/complicated journey by train. Lovely ATCs. Ali x #19

  7. I understand pain. I am sure it is debilitating. I hope you get your operation before Christmas.

    Now you know how I feel when I see all these deskers whose blogs I visit, but have never met. Yet I feel like I know them personally. So, like you, I hope everyone takes lots of photos so you and I can visit vicariously. Take care and get better soon. I'm really LOVING those ATCs. Each one is a gem! Happy belated WOYWW from # 5.

  8. So sorry that you won't be at the crop! I hope that all goes well with the op! Hugs,Chris 22

  9. Hi, I apologise for the late visit. sorry you aren't able to make the Crop, it would have been lovely to meet you! I hope you get news of your operation soon, and that you start feeling better. Your ATCs are beautiful. Good that you can still craft every day! Have a lovely week Heather x #12
