So, it's Wednesday again and here's what my table looked like earlier
I was making this:

It's supposed to be Yoda, just to say I don't think I'll be making many more, too fiddly.
Last night I had the most fun ever whilst sitting in front of my laptop. I've mentioned before a Facebook page for crafters run by Kirsty Wiseman, Marion Emberson and Amy Shaw, and last night they had planned a U-Stream broadcast demonstrating some 'quick'makes for Christmas.
We were all sat in front of our screens at 8pm waiting patiently. After a few blips Kirsty showed us how to make a Christmas tree, a bauble and a card, then she handed over to Marion. That's when the real fun began! So many technical problems but oh so many laughs, if somebody doesn't post it to youtube or Britain's funniest videos, I'll eat my hat! You really had to be there.
I did manage to make this though:
Not as lovely as Kirsty's but not bad for a first attempt! I'll certainly be making more.
About an hour ago I popped my head out of the front door to look for my son and I saw this:

Isn't the sky a marvellous thing?
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Wednesday


  1. Wonderful sky there Jaki.... I loved the whole thing last night too... such fun ... managed to miss how to make that fab tree though.. tuned in too late xx

  2. Fabarooni sky pic Jacko. Who was that bloke at GH that we called Yoda? (Dave someone or other ex BMI)

  3. Yes last night was brill - missed Amy so dont know what she did. What a beautiful sky - colours are amazing - isnt nature wonderful? have u used a book or a magazine for your tree and how many pages? lol xxx

  4. Much as I love your Yoda cut out, I have to ask...why??! It's not something you normally see on WOYWW! Was it a commission from a mad keen Star Wars fan? LOL. I think you need to do a whole series :D
