Another Wednesday has rolled around and it's time for WOYWW again.
I've done even less crafting than last weeka birthday card for a girl at work using the Dina birds
Wednesday, 16 March 2022
Can't quite believe it's Wednesday again already, time for WOYWW once more.
I had a great time at Ally Pally last Saturday - not because the show was good, because it was a mere shadow of it's former glory and the number of stands was very poor (unless you're into peel offs) but it was great to meet up with my friend Lin for the first time since Covid and probably a year before that too.
This was what I bought...
So that meant my Kew trip was Sunday - shame, because the weather was much more drizzly and cool but I was determined to go.
Thanks for visiting, I'll pop round later but work is manically busy so it may not be till later.

wow, that's a number and a half! the beast that is WOYWW! The day we share our crafty spaces with Julia
thank you for your thoughts for the funeral last week, it went really well - my aunt was 97, still living independently in the house she was born in, on her own since my uncle died 30 years ago, still cooking, attending the church she'd been part of all her life where she was a force behind the weekly computer club! Not a bad life! It was also wonderful to catch up with members of my family I'd not seen since... the previous funeral; and especially grateful that we were able to gather together in numbers since COVID deprived so many families of the ability to do so.
I've only done a little crafting this week.
Last weekend saw the final weekend of the Orchid Festival at Kew and I made sure I saw my favourite parts of the display (that means the monkeys!)

Morning deskers, here we are in meteorological spring - not that the weather knows, we've had a couple of days of rain again. Still, it's Wednesday which means WOYWW and time to meet up at Julia's to share our crafty spaces.
I thought about writing and linking this "live" in the morning as I am off work, I will be going to my aunt's funeral later, but old habits die hard and I am writing on Tuesday evening and scheduling as usual!
I was looking in my photos for the new stuff - there must be new stuff, right? well there, is only I'd forgotten to snap a photo -
I did a bit of crafting this last week, I splodged the new Dina paints that came last week, on the small kraft journal and added some stencilling and a tissue collage face and some mark making with a posca paint pen.
I also had a bit of a play with the new Prismacolour pencils, but can't share that as it was a card for our lovely Julia who so sadly lost her beloved Mama last week. Dementia is such a cruel disease that robs us of the person long before the actual parting. Sending huge hugs, Julia and all my love.
If you'll allow me, on a brighter note, Kew last Saturday, was - bright! So I leave you with some springtime flowers!
I'll be round to visit those of you I can before I leave for the funeral and the rest of you, as usual, in the evening.
Take care and happy WOYWW
