WOYWW - May 19th

I'm not going to say how quickly these Wednesdays come around 'cos people are saying that all the time hehe
I've gone for an aerial view again this week, I do like them.  (It's ok Paula (who incidentally Pat and I visited on Monday, we all had a lovely time and a good old natter) I didn't hoist myself up to take it)  I've got the pages for my BIA (Bind It All http://www.cuttingedgecrafts.co.uk/cart.php?target=product&product_id=21393&substring=bind+it+all) book on the desk as I'm trying to get it completed.  I've had to cover the back of each page with more card due to stitching on quite a few of them.  I decided to get all my scissors out on parade this week - apart from those I use for dressmaking; there's another 4 pairs there!  Though it's not on my workdesk I'm showing a swing thingy that's all ripped so I need to make a new swing thingy.  I've got several projects I'm trying to finish (shh, don't tell Bee about the UFOs) including the first aid box some may remember, but that's not going as I intended.  I'm using spray paint which would be great but unfortunately I didn't rub the box down anywhere near enough but at least the spray paint is providing a more suitable surface for me to adhere some paper onto. And then there's the doll's chair!
Well if you're not already doing it why not join in the great snoop - pop over to the fabulous Julia's gaff and then dive in :) EDITED to explain BIA.  Also if you read this Bee just to say yours is one I can't leave a comment on, but had to say Ann made a wonderful job of the bag.  I was with her when she bought it and told me what it was for ;) Lucky you.
NB If you see my prev post you'll see I'm having probs and have been unable to leave comments on some blogs (strange that it's only some) but I will be visiting everyone ovet the next couple of days so if  there's no comment from me by Saturday you'll know why.  I'm hoping Blogger sorts itself out in a few days, I know they're always working to fix problems.

Tried to find out what BIA stood for, but couldn't. I sure love those pages, though. I really love the one with the birds. Happy WOYWW.

Linby said...

Congratulations on your win Anne, I have the same stampotique stamp, love the big leaf stamp too. I have blunted a big pair of scissor as I cannot find my wire cutters, so use the scissors, tut tut, I know.

Julia Dunnit said...

Ya know Anne, it's always reassuring to find other people have a collection of stuff like mine - and as you know, scissors feature in multiples on my desk too - pages are looking good - you must be excited at the prospect of the book now.

Linda Elbourne said...

I think Mr Blogger is conspiring to prevent us from communicating ... this is the hundredth time I have tried to leave you a comment ... and that is just today ... last week was a nightmare ... but today ... Mr Blogger is letting me talk to everyone else ... just not you ... I wonder if he thinks we are trouble :0) Anyways ... I have been visiting and fingers crossed ... here goes ...

Linda Elbourne said...

Woo Hoo ... great desk by the way :0)

Wipso said...

Paula Gale said...

Hi Anne - I got a feeling of de ja vous when I read your post - obviously i caught sight of it yesterday by accident - when you weren't meant to publish... i couldn't leave a comment tho!!

I see you haven't got any scissors LOL...

Also - I tried to take a pic of my desk Anne style and somehow got my slippers!!! i'll stick to a boring shot then!

Paula x x x

Spyder said...

HaHA! found those googley eyes straight away this week!!

Still haven't though what to do for this anniversary and was hoping there'd be some hints on what you are doing!!
I'm having trouble with blogger too!! So I'm copying it, is cae I have to type it all out agin!!

((Lyn))

Lynne said...

A nice busy desk and so many scissors...the googley eyes are watching over your desk today!! Lynne x

Linby said...

Hi Anne - I will cut and paste your comment to Chris. I did think the same but thought best not to interfere in case I had got the wrong end of the stick (so to speak!) Don't mind being the messenger - bit like that book/film, the Go Between LOL!
Hugs Linbyx

Rachel said...

Diana said...

What a lot of scissors! But then again, if I actually count mine, I might have as many...

tkelli said...

I'm jealous of your scissor collection! I have one good pair, but I keep telling myself I need another hehe. That's quite a tear you have there! I'm cheap, so I'd probably just fix it lol.
