WOYWW 257--New Stamps to Play With!

What a big mess on my desk. Happy What's-On-Your-Workdesk-Wednesday lovely deskers! Link your desk up right here and join this fun world wide desk hopping party!

As for me and my workdesk...I've been playing in my art journal with my new stamps from Unity. That's about it! I've never really been into stamping, honestly, so I am toying with the idea of doing a monthly club for a while to get some cuteness in my stamp stash--I think it's what I need for my cards, scrapbooking and journaling! My knitting has been going everywhere with me--even my eye checkup, try knitting while your eyes are dilated, and I've been running around getting my plants ready for the garden. I'll have an early-May garden gossip on Thursday. Other than that, I'm tired! Sometimes I act like I'm 30 and forget I'm in my fifties. That's why I get tired!
New Itty Bitty stamps from Unity Stamp Co.
I had to do a Hobby Lobby run this week--all their Yarnology brand goodies were 30% off. I found the cutest knitting needles, and then I couldn't pass up these owl buttons for DD. I'm still knitting hearts which is my favorite thing to do when I am catching up on Call the Midwife and Mr. Selfridge. I miss the main character girl on Call the Midwife--they've sent her off to recover (I won't say why in case you haven't caught up) but I like the new girl (love her backstory just revealed), and as always, I want more Chummy!! Enjoy your Wednesday!

Eat, Write, Dream, Stitch, Stamp


  1. I can't even knit with looking at the needles constantly without making mistake...watching TV and knitting would be impossible for me! #28

  2. I adore the colour of that yarn! Recently I've found that the colours that I crochet or knit with have quite an effect on me. I'm doing a baby blanket in muted teals and white and I'm not enjoying doing it at all! I've got a stash busting idea lined up for after that and I can't wait to dive into all the reds, yellows, pinks and oranges. Maybe I need a Caribbean holiday - fancy joining me for a Pina Colada somewhere exotic?!
    I suffer from 'forgetting I'm 50' too....dunno whether I'm more aware of the passing of time but I need more hours in the day...sigh. I am trying hard to get to bed at a reasonable time, but not always succeeding.
    Need a big hug from you today, dear's the 2nd anniversary of Mum passing away and I'm sad......
    Hugs, LLJ 2 xx

  3. How cute are those buttons??? The yarn looks yummy, too, and new stamps are always fun!

    Thanks for stopping by this week, Sandy Leigh!

  11. Be patient...more Chummy is planned! Love the chunky yarn, what a great colour. I'm not big into them, but the owls are very cute.! I'm a Unity fan, such wonderful quality.

  12. Owls, yarn and knitting - I just love dropping in here! x Jo

  13. Hi Sandy,

    Cute little mini stamps. I always enjoy looking through the $1 bin at Michael's. Being a fan of Mary Engelbreit I've bought some stamps made out of her art.

    Hmm, knitting hearts. I should try that. I finally finished a baby blanket (actually twice). I miscalculated and the first one came out more like a shawl than a blanket so I ripped it all out. Now it's done (for the second time) and is the perfect size! Yay. Started a lap blanket now as another gift. I have a sleeveless sweater that I want to knit for myself so I'm knitting whenever I can -- but NOT with my eyes dilated! tee hee

    Happy belated WOYWW
    Peace, Kay (17)
