What's on my workdesk today .....

 1.   My basket full of wools and needles      2.  Sunnybank Craft Club Scrapbook
3.  Instructions for joining the Whitworth Scarecrow Festival + knitting pattern + lino printed Doodly Bird
4.  My box of letter and number stamps

All waiting to be either started, updated, finished or planned
Cup of  tea first I think
Oops !   Forgot one.  My box of tags.
Not done mine yet for this week's challenge of CASINO AMUSEMENTS & BINGO

Look who came to see me on Sunday at Browsholme Hall
Fellow WOYWW friends 
 Jo of and Carol of  

Jo brought me this cute bag/key attachment and the gorgeous tag and I had a great discussion with Carol about acrylic stamps.  She is going to make me some from my own designs. (Doodly Birds of course)
It was so nice to meet them, I felt as if I had known them for years.

Have a look at what other people have got on their desks today at

    Your booth looks great - and how wonderful to meet some fellow WOYWWers. Congrats on getting some stamps made of your doodly birds! I'm sure they will be very popular.

  14. Great to meet up with blogging friends - what a nice bunch. x Jo

  15. What lovely gifts you got there Lynn - that tag is gorgeous and the crochet keyring very cute.
    I love your alphabet stamps, what size are they? I have an acrylic set but they're quite big letters really, need to look for some small ones that don't look out of place on an ATC sized card/tag.
    Doodly Bird stamps! Awesome! Put me down on a waiting list for a set :0) xx

    1. will send you a sample through the post Mo xx

  16. Lovely stuff on your desk! You girls must have had a lovely time together discussing crafts!
    Lots of hugs,

  17. Ooh, wasn't it good to get together... next time I'll bring Neet of Hickydorums too!
    Lovely bright post and glad you had a good crafting day at Sunnybank.
    Love Jo x

  18. I bet your birds will make adorable stamps. dani101

  19. Love how you have done those pictures at the very beginning, clever idea (and know how which I do not have)and a nice picture of you with Jo and Caz.
    Am off to investigate the Whitworth Scarecrows (I used to live in Britannia where the Coconutters come from).
    Hugs, Neet 36 xx

  20. a little late getting around have a great day and thanks for sharing

  21. I am so jealous of all of you WOYWWers getting to meet each other. I live on the other side of the globe (quite literally LOL) so I don't think I will get to meet any of you soon. :(
    I would so buy those doodly bird stamps if you decide to sell them.
    Happy very belated WOYWW

  22. Tertia and I at least live in the same country, but it is HUGE, so the chances of us meeting is not great either...Nice idea to have stamps made of your birds.

  23. How lovely to meet each other at the fair and share with all of us. I love the letter and number stamps in your first pic. Can't wait to see your birdy stamps.

  24. Ah Lynn, knowing about die cuts will just immerse you deeper into the arms of the slippery slope! Bet you had fun with Redanne et al, am a teeny bit jealous! That's been the true success of WOYWW - the people of course, but the between the wednesday it. A line of doodly stamps - look at you going places!
