About Me

My photo
I'm married (45 years) to my wonderful (sometimes) husband, Peter and have two wonderful (sometimes) grown-up (sometimes) children. I also am a grandmother to five gorgeous and wonderful (sometimes) grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. I am a self taught 'tatter'... 'Tatting' is lace-making with a shuttle instead of with bobbins - though I can also make lace in the traditional way too. I enjoy knitting and also crochet, and have tried many other arts and crafts - but always go back to tatting. I write poetry, and if I didn't have fibromyalgia I'd probably enjoy long walks through the forest and along the beach too :)

Hi folks!
Another Wednesday has come around and I still have nothing done! as you can see from my workdesk I am telling the truth.
But here are some of the things that are finished...
at least here would be some things if I could get the photographs to load! Think I'll try again a bit later after having a look around the wonderful blogs blogs listed at Julias.
If you want to join in the fun of woyww, just pop on over to Julia's and add your name at stampingground.blogspot.com


  1. I'm a new blogger too - so figuring things out can be tricky sometimes. Luckily my netbook has a slot for my camera thingy (yes, I am technical!!! heee) otherwise I'd be having a hard time.

  2. Ah, the old photo loading..pain huh. Never mind, I shall imagine your desk as a haven of peace and organised tranquility with everything where it needs to beans the potential for a shed load of finishings. Looking good!

  3. I am sure you will sort out the photo loading eventually. There are some amazing technical woyww's, just not me sorry!

  4. We have all been there with the nightmare photo upload,and it does take a little while to get the hang of all the tech stuff but you will be a whizz before you know it... it will be good to see your desk once you get it sorted... look forward to seeing your tatting...xx

  5. Darn blogger! Sometimes it has a mind of its own and won't load up a photo for anything! Hang in there it doesn't get better! Joke...eventually it gets to be old hat blogging but blogger does have its own mind! Have a great week and Happy Holidays! Thanks for sharing. Vickie #35
