WOYWW 98

It's Wednesday again so let's have a look at Julia's blog to see what everyone has been working on this week.

This is my last WOYWW Turkish desk for a while. I'm heading home to UK for a few months so i have been trying desperately to finish some of my WIPs. The main one is my JYC album, others include some of the heritage photos and baby photos for my mum's albums.



Here is my desk, and a peek at one of the pages on it.  It is a little tidier (honest) than normal because in true Turkish fashion, when time is at a premium we start a project. I have 3 days left here, so DH decided that the time was right to paint the ENTIRE HOUSE. I know....but honestly, I've kind of given up arguing. Like putting a fireplace in 5 days before christmas, it will work out somehow. Some things might go undone, but hey it's only a house. (DH doesnt include my sanity as something that should be effected by such things lol).

Next week my desk will be a kitchen table at Mums, and in a few months it will be my normal desk just in a room with different coloured paint.

So join in the fun, and let us have a peek at your desk.

Hi Caroline, busy desk and busy altogether. Nice to hear you are heading home for another visit - we are having the best of weather here so something for you to look forward to. I'm not WOYWWing this week - I have too much on but I am taking the time to visit those I follow and those that follow as I feel I've been neglecting them of late. Elizabeth x

Enjoy your trip. Painting the house makes it feel like a new place.

You mean you have to help paint before your leave!!! At least it'll be lovely for when you get back again.

Hope you have a lovely time back in the UK - If the weather's as lovely in Scotland as it is here in England, you'll be needing some sun tan lotion!

Happy Easter to you xx

My husband is just the same! I remember on Christmas Eve one year he was still painting the dining at 3am!
Safe journey x

Hope your trip goes weel. I hated having my crafty stuff in transit for months, but given the weather has been so fine recently, it's a good time to be out and about rather than inside crafting. The one time I tried doing a layout outside, a swift breeze kicked up and took may carefully cut title letters with it on a trip across the fields!

I was here, honest! I said I thought your tukish desk looked very good. I'll have a different desk this next Wednesday...not very crafty at all! Have a great week and a safe trip home. Happy Easter Monday and very late WOYWW!
