WOYWW again

Its Wednesday again and as I enjoyed my foray into WOYWW last week I have decided to enter again.      I didn’t manage to visit everyone’s desk but managed all those who visited mine (I think ) and every 10th one  from my number.

WOYWW 68 - 2nd time of entering

My desk looks pretty much the same as I have a tendency to use the same items for a while.   (The knife is sheathed this week though.)   I have two metal embossed shapes on the work mat which I am playing with.   Hopefully they will become a card like the red one already there.  The big reel of foam tape I find much easier to use if I want to lift a big shape and the snow flake punches are there cos I have been making Christmas cards. ( haven’t used the snowflakes yet – but I will !!).

During the spring OH and I went to a flower and bulb sale in a local big house.    We picked up a large bag of small Gladioli corms for the princely sum of £1.   They were so small I didn’t think they would come to much this year.

Gladioli from the garden

But I went out the other day and these two beautiful blooms were there waiting to be picked.   I don’t do flower arranging and I realise now the vase is too big and should really be plain to show off the lovely colours.   One is a very pale lilac with a slightly darker edge and the other is that lovely cerise with a green throat.   There are one or two more to come but for a £1 I don’t think we can complain.   There wasn’t much else in the garden to put with them hence the rather eclectic mix of colours!

I’m off to play now with the shapes on my desk and to link up with WOYWW.

Happy Crafting.

    Love the flowers and the sun shining on your desk ready to be played with.

  12. I’m a bit late for Wednesday, but hope it was as much fun the second time around. I tend to get stuck in a rut and use the same things over and over, rather than reaching for something different. I can totally relate. Love those flowers. And the bulbs were a real bargain, too. (I’m #2).

    That a great vase.. I think any shade of blooms would look great in there.

  18. twiglet says:

    I love gladioli and those are such lovely colours. We have hot orange ones in our garden.

  19. I’m fairly new to WOYWW too! Love your floral arrangement & you’re too hard on yourself – the vase is fine & so is the arrangement – actually I’d say it’s “classy”. Intrigued by your metal work, this is a fascinating way of seeing how differently we work.

    the gladioli kinda do it for themselves, the vase and arrangement are barely noticeable in their presence – they must make you happy. Very interested to see what you do with those lovely textured pieces…so far, lovely!
