WOYWW - 159

Ha, almost got caught out yesterday. Just about to start on something in here and suddenly remembered that I needed to make a dessert for today. So, in usual fashion, things were just left like this and I ran away into the kitchen.

A week or two back, a few folk mentioned the HUGE 'butterfly stamps' on the desk on WOYWW:
Here they are again - but they're not stamps at all in fact. We have an uncoloured panel in the front door which is beautifully patterned, but there are two clear spots where anyone of a 'nosy nature' can see right down the hallway.

'Mr Security' here already raided my finished 'sun catchers' but now wants two newly made matching ones. Hence the box of glass paints all ready for action.

So, the eye can deceive, not stamps after all :)

A couple of new stamps at the back and the tailors chalk borrowed by Len for some DIY still waiting to be put away with the sewing stuff - don't ask!

And today I'm off on my travels for lunch with some lovely bloggers, bearing said dessert :) Stand by - I'm on my waaaaaaaaay.

Do hop over to Julia's to see the state of her desk that she'll be leaping onto a chair and photographing - and of course there's loads of fun to be had by hopping round to see everyone who linked in as well. Guess I'll be playing catch up after my little adventure :)

Have a great day, I'm sure I will!

have a great day out and enjoy the dessert! I think the sun catchers will be perfect security blockers! Have a great week. Vickie #23

Julia Dunnit said...

Standing by I am. 'citing innit!
I think it's grand that you can use craft stuff for home security, surely that improves the craft budget on the basis of it's seriousness?

Twiglet said...

Yes - I am sure there would be a market for security butterflies. lol. Have a fab day out. x Jo

Crafters are always so versatile no matter what the occasion I think we can come up with some way of adding butterflies. Enjoy your lunch.

Hazel said...

Enjoy your lunch get together, including the dessert. Good idea to use the butterflies in that way (and they do look like stamps). Thanks for the opportunity of having a peep at your workspace - trying to make a few visits early this week! Hazel, WOYWW #87 x

I really do mean to get myself organized enough to join the playground ;)


Spyder said...

Miriam said...

Lovely butterflies.


Sarn said...

My life would not be complete without them!

Looks like you have some work to do when you get back from gallivanting around the country . . . AGAIN!

Is it bad that all I really want to know is what dessert you made? Oh, and can we see a picture of the door with your suncatchers? Bet's it's dead cool.

cheers, rachel #19

SophieNewton said...

Haven't made sun catchers for ages, they were all the rage when I were a nipper. Looks like you're going to have great fun

Hope you had a wonderful lunch with your crafty pals Di. I was out to lunch today too but passed on the desert.(only because I’m being weighed tomorrow)

What a great idea to fill the gaps in your window with sun catchers. The butterflies will look very pretty there when they are done.

Happy Crafting!

I'm envious of your day out! Wish I could come join you guys (maybe someday).

Time got away from me and so no linking up for me this week. I did want to pop in to see what you've been up to though.


Darnell said...

Clever you, no surprise, to come up with a beautiful solution to halt the peeping eyes. All the while letting hundreds of peeping eyes into your craft room. Hmmm.

Looking forward to hearing all about your raucous luncheon. Thanks for stopping by my place!
All the best, Darnell #45

lisa said...

I bet those butterflies are going to look beautiful on your front door, Di. Don't forget we need piccies of them in situ!!
I'm very envious of you going out to play today, especially as you are taking dessert. I think I need to move to your neck of the woods, I'll bring a Greggs pasty to the party, promise!!!
Hope you had a great day.

Hettie said...

Hope you had a good day today Di! I trust dessert will be on the Friday menu?!!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

What?! No picture of the dessert? I suppose that's for the best, to keep us from drooling. I don't remember the huge butterfly stamps on your desk (especially now that I see them) but I have seen a couple really huge butterfly stamps before. I'm not sure the purpose of them (big stamps, not the sun catcher things you have). I have a sweet sun catcher thing but how do you get it to stay to the window? Those suction cup things don't seem to work.

I'm a bit late getting round to all the posts this week...hope your dessert went well and you had a lovely day out!
