WOYWW73 & More Superlambananas

Busy, busy, busy, this week but with not a lot to show. I'm in the  middle of my first attempts to make a special card for DD1s 40th birthday. I'm stumped, each week as WOYWW comes again, to know where the last week disappeared to, but I am really brain frazzled to know where 40 years has gone and my two lovely daughters are grown and now mothers themselves.
I'm just playing round, hoping for inspiration, using for the first time the new stamps I bought at Port Sunny from Lost Coast Designs. I really don't know how this will end up or if I will even use it but I love these quirky images. Oops! better move that knitting from the desk before it's inked up. Just started knitting for the grandees to keep them warm for Winter.
I've just started making a baby nest for my niece's expected baby as there are only a few weeks left before it will be born. No pastels and lace but red gingham for this modern babe!
If you think these are the rambling of someone deranged.... they are but it is also the weekly madness shared by many others who love to share their crafty spaces with all those who are nosey enough to enjoy snooping on them. All this is the brainchild of Julia of Stamping Ground blog so, if you are like minded, super tidy, mad chaos messy, or anything in between, or just want to spy on it all, pop over to visit many more of us on Julia's blog.
and here's another arty spot to share.....
Some more Superlambananas just for Doone. There are still quite a few lurking round the city as they were bought at the charity auction by local businesses.
This one is dressed as a tepanyaki chef and is now outside the Sapporo Tepenyaki Restaurant in the city centre.
& Sergeant Pepper Superlambanana
I popped in on most of you last week but apologise to the few I missed ..... I'll try to change direction and pan this week and visit from middle outwards or last first ... see you soon.... I off calling in on WOYWW friends!

Jo, you amaze me - how do you find the time to do so many things? Enjoy your DD's card making and look forward to seeing the end result - it will be something spectacular if I know you. See you next week.

The only other place I know which has had creatures manifesting themselves all over town is Bath, where my daughter lives. The last ones were pigs of all descriptions and now they have lions.
My granddaughter Daisy loves to spot them!

When I was in vancouver in 2006, they had dolphins all over. The best one was stationed at the library, and it had been carved out so that it resembled a bookshelf with books and even a teddy bear on the shelf! Your lambananas reminded me. Patsy from

I love to see a work in progress! You do what I do, stamp some images and play a bit to see what they want to do!
You have a lot of different talents on the go it seems, with the knitting a sewing, etc!
Thanks for the peek!

We can still see those strawberries!!! Will you show the special birthday card when it's done?

So many things on the go, you really do keep busy don't you? Some of my husbands family are from Liverpool, well, Higher Bebington actually. We visited them in May when we were last in England end went to Ness Gradens with them which were absolutely amazing, well worth the trip over the river for!

I like those quirky images you've rubber stamped. Hope you get to make your DD a lovely card with them.

It's true - time does fly when you're having fun (unfortunately)!

Lovely work area. Not too sure about the livestock!!! We have concrete cows on a roundabout near Milton Keynes here in the UK. Not my cup of tea. Thanks for sharing your workspace. Best wishes, Kym xxx (WOYWW No 24)

Fab post and pics this week, I hope you've started on that card for your daughter by the time you are reading this!! I adore that strawberry tablecloth, every week it makes me smile!

Gotta love the gingham for the "modern" babe. It sure isn't your grandmother's baby colors :>)

Thanks so much for the sweet words you left on my blog. I'm still moving slowly, but trying to start visiting people who visited me. I also wondered what the "tail" was in the box under the microwave, then realized it was the bath mat that was partly ripped and stickiing down. It sure DID look like Bleubeard was hiding a friend in the box (grin). Happy very belated WOYWW (# 15).

I started in the middle this week Jo - the advantage of being this late is that I'm up to date with your fascinating blog. Loved your DD's birthday card, and their pumpkin carving is just awesome, how fab. We moved a Japanese Maple for my darling parents - gave it a huge root ball and a very very large hole...total survivor!
