Yes, it's Wednesday rolling around like a bad penny. It's time to join Julia (YEAH!) over at Stamping Ground for another WOYWW. Jan has been a great host these past weeks so THANK YOU Jan! It's nice to see Julia well enough to host again.
This will actually be my last WOYWW post for a while. I am off to visit Mum in England on Friday and I won't be back until the middle of September. I might pop over to visit on a Wednesday but I won't have my phone with me and internet will be when I can get to it. Not sure how crafty I'll be while I'm away but I plan on taking a ton of pics so will have plenty to share, and work with, when I get back.
As of this afternoon I am still working on my card. It is getting there and will be done by the time I leave. I will try to remember to take a picture when assembled. I found a great website that you could add words and it would make them into any shape. I put some words to describe Mum and put them in a heart shape. That's what you see on the desk.
I've been working on putting some of Mum's genealogy into a booklet of some kind that can easily be understood. I have been handwriting it at night while watching telly instead of the stitching (that is framed and ready to go!). I am so excited to be able to show her what I have managed to get together and I think she'll be excited. My husband's aunt directed me where to find some great charts so I could put it all together.
I will be getting around to as many desks as I can in between trying to decide what clothes to take with me. It's been hot in Ipswich the last couple of days (not as hot as here!) and (cringe sorry!) hope it at least gets a little cooler as I really want a little break from the heat. Sunshine will be accepted and wanted! It's been so hot here in Kalamazoo sleeping the past few nights. Between the heat and the anxious-getting-ready-to-go-and-things-running-through-my-mind-while-trying-to-sleep I haven't been getting a lot of sleep!
Enough rambling! See everyone in September!
