WOYWW 118 Just Back from Germany

A quicky post as I'm only just back home within the last few hours from Germany and I really miss my lovely family so much. I've spent quality time with them all but it was especially good to see my little grandee looking so well after so long without seeing her whilst she had her intensive treatment. She really is a star and spreads sunshine wherever she is. All credit to her lovely parents too. I had a wonderful time.
This morning we went to see the ducks and also visited a craft store and a Rossman store where all the ribbons were reduced. I came back with all this bargain stash. Well I couldn't leave it all there in Germany, could I?
I also bought a few lovely fabrics which I have plans to use very soon. Otherwise my desk is just the same since Donna's departure. I just left it as it was as I didn't craft again before I left for Germany. You can go and nosey around lots of other work spaces via our illustrious leader Julia's blog if you are that way inclined...why not!?! Stamping Ground will take you there.
Here's what I've been doing since last Wednesday and it has been wonderful!
Feeding the ducks.......
 Playing hide and seek.....
 Visiting all the animals at the local allotments......
Painting on the new easel gifted by Vicky Stampers
Making daisy chains, all simple pleasures but such treasures.
Back now but I already miss them soooo much!

Follow up from last week......
A big shout out for Ally Fiddy who has won a small prize for guessing correctly my Mystery Item! Well done Ally and please leave me your contact details so I can post it on to you.

So glad that you were able to spend such quality time with the family, Jo, especially the little one. Looks like there's a little occupational therapy waiting for you on your desk!

Love the picture of her bending down, I think they look so cute the way they do this. I'd topple over if I tried.
Glad you are back but sad that you had to leave them in Germany, hopefully not long before you go back.

Glad to hear you had such a great time and that your grandee is doing so well. What a little trouper, she is gorgeous. I agree with Twiglet, I LOVE that little crochet hat, wouldn't mind one for myself. Perhaps I'll ask Julia to make me one - lololololol!! Nice bit of stash too, like those gingham ribbons..mmmmm XX

Looks like you are going to have fun with all that in on your desk. Love the shots of your gorgeous Granddaughter ...what a couragous soul xx

CRAFTY WOMBLE said...

Welcome back from Germany - I like it there, my husband worked out there for 18 months before we were married and I liked it very much. I thought that craft papers were bad but I have recently decided to expand to fabric stuff and time just vanishes while looking through all the different options! Looking forward to seeing more crafting once you are settled again :)

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh bless her in that lovely hat! So glad you've had time to spend with your precious ones, and to enjoy a grandee in better health than for some time too, marvellous. Love that yellow 'clothes' fabric, it's fun.

Helen said...

A lovely time was had by all... and your purchases look very interesting.

Sarah Anderson said...

What a little sweetie she is, and looks adorable in that hat! Talking of which, glad you told us what that wooden block was, I didn't have a clue!!!

Sunshine Girl said...

Glad you had a great time and look at all that lovely new stash you have to play with! love the hat too.

madebyKarla said...

very pretty stuff on your desk! It would have been a crime to leave it behind ;) Adorable pictures of your grandee.

lisa said...

Oh Jo, what gorgeous photos of your precious grandee. I know how much you've been looking forward to this visit and I'm so glad you got there at last. The simple pleasures are the best ones, espcially after the year you've all had.
I'm glad you managed some crafty shopping as well and what bargains.
Love and Hugs Lisax

Elizabeth said...

Lovely pics, you grandee is lovely and isn't her hat just so cute. And it wouldn't be me if I didn't drool over all that ribbon :) Have a great week. Elizabeth x #50

RosC said...

Your littlie is very sweet. Playing with kids keeps the Kid inside alive and I'm sure that missing the family is more intense after a visit.
Lovely ribbons and things.
Ros at 85 this time.
