WOYWW 647: Workshop Here I Come

 Welcome to a relaxing WOYWW contribution - it is half term and I am scheduling this so I can have a lie in.  Please visit Stamping Ground where Julia will explain more about the weekly desk sharing.

The desk shot is as boring as ever, but I can't share the secret stuff I am up to ready to post on Friday as it won't be available until next Wednesday.  I am expecting Eva later and we will have a lovely day crafting together.

The daily drawing is still going strong.  I am really looking forward to Tilly Tea Dance's workshop on Friday where I will be learnin gthe art of needle felting a picture - hopefully it will be good enough to give to my Mum for her 80th birthday later this year so I won't be sharing it straight away.  Stay safe everyone and Happy WOYWW.


  1. Glad that your cold is going sufficiently for a play day with Eva! and the felting day to look forward too. Have fun!! Helen #3

  2. Even if you don't show us you can mention how it went on Friday. - please. Hope the lie in helps with the cold and you are free from it all by Friday. Anyway, school holidays are for lie - ins. Aren't they?
    Hugs, Neet 7 xx

  3. Hi Sarah, I hope you enjoy your lie in, your day crafting with Eva and your needle felting workshop. Your Mum will think it’s great if you make it. Love your drawings and the way you interpret the themes.
    Take care and happy WOYWW

  5. Hope you have a marvellous time on Friday, give that Twiglet a big old (socially distanced) hug from me! I bet you’ll have a ball at the workshop, felting is good fun!
    Hugs LLJ 4 xx

  6. Great drawings - splat made me laugh! Hope you enjoyed your lie in. Happy WOYWW Angela #9

  7. Hi Sarah, your brain must be ticking over all the time these drawings are brilliant. Hope you two have a lovely day crafting. Happy creative woyww, Angela x15x

  8. Some of these are quite witty! 'Splat' is genius - and I bet the fly got away - they always do! Have a lovely day playing with Eva and enjoy the rest of half term - it will be over before we know it :(( xx zsuzsa #18

  9. Oh yes! We had a connect so I think that has to be my fav this week...only the leak...really does look like a leak! On a wizz round, as it took me ages to get into Julia's, and the link might close! Stay Safe, Keep on Crafting! Happy WOYWW!? ((Lyn))#20

  10. I hope you have a fab time on Friday, I do have a dose of workshop envy - I love Max's work. Hope you have a lovely time with Eva today, so glad you are feeling much better now and can get on with enjoying your half term. Loving the daily drawings - the fuzzy one reminds me of the days when we had springer spaniels - goodness I got through those rollers at a rate of knots!
    Happy WOYWW

  11. i've enjoyed your drawings on FB too. Memories of the Connect 4 game, my sons and I loved games. Hope you'll soon be 100% healthy again and get to enjoy some SUNSHINE. I think it's the best medicine.

  12. So nice to have a play day! It's been several years since I've had one of those! My favourite drawing this week is the sprout, probably because it's Fall and I'm already looking forward to Spring! I love all your Washi Tape on your desk - so not so boring after all! Have a great week, Lindart #22

  13. Lovely to be able to enjoy the luxury of a lie-in during half term, Sarah, and I'm glad you have another meet-up with Eva planned. Love the drawings - my fav this week is "Leak." Thank you for your visit and for your good wishes for our health. As for the TH purples, I have got all the ones you mention and while they do come under the heading of "purple," until this new one, none of them had that real purple intensity. I think the closest is Dusty Concord which up till now has been my go-to purple. I agree about the peachy apricot shade. I was watching one of his videos this morning and he said if you can't get the exact shade you want, if you've got a stamping platform, you can double stamp with two colours of Distress Ink (not with oxides as they are opaque). He also has DIY ink pads which come with no ink on them and you could blend your own from different re-inkers. A bit of a faff, but it should work if you were desperate for a particular colour.

    The kitties send purrs.

    Happy WOYWW,

  14. Love splat!
    I may borrow your open idea - Open is this weeks prompt from Carolyn Dube!
    Happy WOYWW!
    Stay safe and keep well!

  15. I love seeing your drawing and especially this month, just to see what you come up with from the inktober prompts - my son and I are choosing/drawing with the prompts too (I'll post the drawings we made soon) but we'd only picked a few from the list. We do have one in common though ("Leak") Thanks for visiting my desk the other day, have a great weekend! Love from Holland. Marit #19

  16. Sorry to be so late but I hope you've managed a few more long lies since Wednesday. I always enjoy seeing your drawings. I often look at the prompt and think, 'I wouldn't have thought of that!', e.g. 'splat':) I'm sure you had a lovely time with Eva and I'm equally sure you'll enjoy the workshop today. Look forward to seeing your makes in due course. Hugs, Elizabeth x #23

  17. Better late than never due to extreme fatigue.
    Great drawings!
    Have a great weekend!
