WoywW #542

Hello everyone, 

It's time to share our Wednesday work desks over 
at the stamping ground thanks to Julia our host. 

Early share from me today as extra care duties call. 
Both Mum's are down with a virus as well as Hubbies 
12 month check up. Can you believe it's a year since 
his heart attack, where has that last year gone?.. 
I'm so thankful he's on the mend.

So here's my work desk untouched and unloved. 
Hidden projects needing completion but free time 
along with my mojo are no where in sight.. Sigh..

This past week has flown, I've had a Birthday.. 😏 
Family get together's & been spoilt beyond belief.

Just look at what my dear friend Dorthe sent me. 
So kind and talented, I just had to show both to you. 
Thank you *Dorthe* I will treasure them always.

Lots of things happening this week but 
I hope to catch up with you all asap..

Take care everyone 
Creative Hugs
Tracey xx

Happy belated birthday, Tracey. You got some awesome gifts, too. Dorthe knew how to spoil you. Not playing in WOYWW, but wanted to stop by and wish you a belated happy birthday and a fun day out.

HAppY beLATed're time is sounding like what I went thru a month back. Things are getting better. It's draining and zaps your time. Pretty presents from Dorthe, she's a sweetheart.
Hope your day turns out fun and exciting and all goes well from now on. Happy WOYWW #4

Happy belated birthday, glad you were spoiled! Take care while caring! Hugs, Valerie

Neet said...

Oh dear, I dread getting a cold and cough so I feel very sorry for your mum and mum in law. Not nice being laid low like that. Hope hubbies check up shows that things are doing well. Heart attacks must be so frightening.
Well, you kept your birthday quiet - what a lovely pair of handmade gifts you got. I love anything handmade, time is so precious and for people to put time and love into a gift means so much. Belated Birthday Wishes to you dear Tracey.
Hope you get some time to craft soon.
Hugs, Neet 7 xx

A Birthday! hope it was a good one, Happy belated xXx. Love the gifts you received and hope everything goes well this week so you can get back to your desk sometime. Wishing you a very happy woyww, Angela x13x

Julia Dunnit said...

Ah Tracey, you deserve to be spoiled...and that Dorthe, wow how clever she is. Gosh I’m surprised at the year that’s gone by but am very grateful that you’re a year away from that trauma and worry and very grateful that you’ve still got each other and that his recovery is ongoing. Blimey, So happy you spotted the house card in all my detritus, its about one of the only things I finished and was happy with! AM off in a minute to pick up my sweet Ma In Law..., mostly my days are spent ferrying or visiting my two mothers; I dont resent it at all, but somethings wish I could leave half of myself at home to get on with other stuff! Hope your mothers improve quickly.

What lovely presents from your friend - happy belated birthday, Tracey! Don't forget to self-care while looking after others - it's so important! Hopefully both mums will recover soon and your hub's check up goes smoothly. Can't believe it's been a year! Take care and I hope you'll be able to get back into your craft room soon and do what makes you happy! zsuzsa #16

Sorry to hear about the illness within the family and so glad DH is on the mend one year later x. Life is so busy at the moment for you but looking forward to your amazing creativity once it settles down a little x. So glad you celebrated your birthday and what creative and kind gifts from your friend x.

Dorthe said...

Dear friend,
no wonder your desk is untouched with all you have to do, and help with.
So happy for you, it was a wonderful birthday , and that you was having a day being spoiled by everyone. Tracey, I`m happy you love the angel and card , and that they now lives with you .
I wish both your Mums soon to feel fine again,- and hope the check will show all things going fine for your husband. It seems also for me, that a year runs away ,just like that, and all so fast . Dearest Tracey I hope for you, there will soon be time , to create, as I know you misses it. Sending you biggest hugs , Dorthe xoxoxoxo

Hi Tracey, happy belated birthday, glad you got spoilt, you certainly deserve it. I hope everyone recovers soon. I can't believe it's 12 months - time certainly has flown by! My mojo has been AWOL lately - it had better come back soon, I need to do lots of crafting! Have a lovely week Heather xx #27

Redanne said...

I am so sorry that both Mums have the virus, my hubs has it and I know how awful it is. I really hope they are both feeling better soon. I am so sorry too that I missed your birthday, Dorthe gifts are beautiful, she is such a talented lady.

It really is hard to believe it is a whole year since your hubby had his heart attack but I am so pleased that he is on the mend. With everything that is going on at home, I hope you stay well and that you are not doing too much..... Thinking of you, Anne xxx

Anne said...

Hi Tracey. Belated birthday greetings. Glad you husband doing well. Sorry the respective mum's not so much. Make sure you look after yourself as well. You certainly sound as though you would benefit from a Craft Retreat! Take care Anne X

How lovely to be the proud owner of one of Dorthe's magical dolls - a cheerier note to end the post on... I do hope both mothers are fully recovered by now.
