WOYWW #491

Happy Woyww #491

It's a weekly Wednesday meet up over at the stamping ground 
and a chance to share and catch up with everyone and their creativity.

Can I say again a HUGE Thank you for all your well wishes last week.

Hubby is doing well and the Doctor's and Cardio Rehab are pleased with his progress. 
The door bell and phone have been very busy i'm surprised he's had any rest at all. 

This weeks desk contains gathered stamps and dies ready for Christmas cards. 
Keeping everything crossed this weekend will be quiet enough to make a start.

A left over Thank you card is visible, maybe this one can be for you lovely people.

I did manage to find time to open my Birthday cards and gifts, albeit a week late.
My dearest children spoilt me with a new laptop, they obviously were sick of trying to 
update and fix my old #unfixable. After forgetting lots of passwords and transferring 
lots of files i'm now up and running again and faster than I have been for years.. YAY!!!

An appointment free day today means I get some creative time 
so i'm hoping to finish off this little lady before the witching hour ends... 

Have fun with those Trick or Treaters and Happy Halloween.

Look forward to seeing #WOYWW thanks to Julia

  3. Happy Halloween dear Tracey! So good to hear your hubby makes such good progress! All the best for him! Enjoy your new superfast witch's broom!
    Always good to have equipment that works properly! Otherwise one gets crazy!
    Great children!

    Big hugs and I am looking forward to the little lady !


  4. Glad hubby is recovering from his ordeal which must have been so scary for the two of you. We don't know what is around the corner thank goodness.
    Well, you might have had to wait for those birthday treats but heck, what treats they were. Such a lovely and generous gift from your children to put mum top of her game with the new computer. Hope you have this coming week to enjoy all the goodies you missed.
    Take it easy yourself too, you need your rest as well and dust will only settle and wait for you so get a cuppa and put your feet up awhile.
    Happy WOYWW.
    Hugs, Neet 2 xx

  5. Glad things are settling down for you both and that hubby is heading in the right direction. The new laptop must be making your life much easier. Look forward to seeing that lady in all her glory when you finish her. Sarah #8

  6. Wow, look at your colouring pencil skills, how amazing, and Ive had thought they are just the therapy you could do with! So glad to read that things are all onthe recovery path, what a weight off. Don’t forget to look after the looker afterer! What a great gift from your children, the thought of the password problems fills me with dread, but it is something I think I’m going to have to face fairly soon. I shall use you as my encouraging example!

  7. I’m really sorry I missed last week’s post, Tracey - you really have had a time and I’m so sorry to hear about your poor hubby’s heart attack. What a worry for you all. I hope he continues to make a good recovery and that all will be well. How lovely of the family to get you a new laptop! Have fun with it. Your drawing is so beautiful.

    Happy WOYWW,

  9. Such a pretty Thank You. and I think I spotted Sizzix Christmas dies! Happy Belated Birthday, enjoy that new Laptop. Some getting use to, but we have to keep updated. Hoping your hub does well and things get back to normal. Don't know where time goes but as long as our weather is nice I am not complaining. So much traveling for us here right now so I like the no snow thing. Lots of farm machinery and accidents so just have to be patient. Enjoy a good week.

  10. Loving the drawing - love the autumnal colours!
    Happy WOYWW :)

  26. I'm so glad you were finally able to open your gifts and it reads like some of the stress you felt before is now gone. I was SO glad to read about your new laptop. I know it was another pain you had before, so this is excellent news, dear. Happy belated Halloween, too.

  27. Thank you for your visit and kind comments. Glad your husband is recovering. xxx Maggie #14

  28. Glad you're feeling better and that your hubby is doing so well. And what a wonderful gift from your kids!! Hope you got lots of crafty goodness done yesterday! I'm finally able to get to visiting desks! Thanks for stopping by yesterday!

  29. Happy to hear that your husband is progressing well, enjoy your new laptop. Xx

  30. Thank you for your return visit, Tracey. I’m glad you like the scarf. Yes, it will have the peacock feathers sewn onto the ends once I’ve completed them. I’m hoping they’ll agree to leave the hernia alone as it’s not causing any serious problems - I’m just aware of it. It’s probably large enough not to risk causing another obstruction, which is not something I would relish repeating!! I don’t fancy being opened up yet again, especially as last time I ended up with sepsis. Lol at your remark about the cake haha!! (My secret is out...)
