WOYWW 192 and Two Seasons in Two Days

Morning lovely crafters and dear WOYWW friends. Another Wednesday whizzes round which must mean it's time for another desk snoop. If you want to join in the fun, then pop over to see the Desk Headmistress,  Julia, who keeps us all in order HERE.

Here's mine this week.

If you'd like a choccy help yourselves although there's not many left (they were a birthday present) . I also have a bag of Yorkshire Mixture on the go so if you'd prefer one of those!!

As you can probably tell I'm playing with my H20's for some DT work I've just finished and am just preparing a card to put some lovely new stamps on but I can't share it with you just yet.

On the floor waiting for attention is some fabric waiting to be turned into some Lillybo quilts. 

I can't wait to get started on them. Thanks for the tips and advice last week. I shall be dusting off my sadly neglected sewing machine later.

Before I get off to work I thought I'd just share with you two photos I took in the garden. I was so delighted to see this little Iris start to flower at the weekend and took a photo on Monday in the lovely sunshine.

This is exactly the same poor flower on Tuesday!!!!

Yes, we have snow again. Just when I thought Spring was round the corner it's turned bitingly cold again.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you've got some heating on when I pop by your desks later on, I'll be ready to warm my tootsies and share a cuppa of something warming.

Enjoy your Wednesday.

It's amazing how hardy delicate flowers can be isn't it. More snow here yesterday - I was with my friend at her daughter's house waiting for news of said daughter's baby girl (by section) but had to leave as it was snowing thick and fast and settling quite thick. Of course the phone call came five minutes after I left and the snow had all gone in an hour.
That oval die is lovely but is one of those that benefits from using baking paper next to the die.

Would love a choccy but having a glass of wine so I will just stick to that for the moment. Minding my calories!!
Gorgeous card and loooove the way your store your H2O's such a clever idea. Flowers are stunning with the snow on the ground. Can't believe the change in a week. Have a lovely week.

Lol, that's the British weather for you....pretty little iris though!!
Love the fabric as well, so many folk are sewing again, yay, it's good to see. And the quilts are all so different, I adore that :) I'll be starting a new one after I get back from Wales.
Hugs, LLJ 44 xx

Ria Gall said...

I have not bought any H20's as yet but they are on my want list.
Look at that beautiful iris such a shame you had more snow I do hope it survives.

Claire said...

oh this snow is too much isn't it?? i fear our magnolia (my absolute favourite tree!) will not bloom this year - it's tried budding 3 times already!

Redanne said...

Really love the look of the fabric for your quilt Lisa. Don't worry about the bag too much, if I can do it you certainly can and I enjoyed doing mine in the end! Happy WOYWW, Anne x #35 (thanks for your visit)

SueH said...

I really must get my H2o’s out again and try and use them a bit more, they are sad and neglected.
Looks like there’ll be some pretty quilts heading Jo’s way very soon, so good luck with the sewing.

Thanks for stopping by this week.
Happy Crafting!

Hi Lisa, Ooh a quilt, can't wait to see the finished article!

Absolutely love iris, can't grow them in my garden but yours are looking gorgeous.

Happy WOW day. Jill x

MaggieC said...

What a lovely pile of material. Sadly, I cleared most of mine out when we were drowning under the weight of everything from the two houses belonging to our mothers. Thank you for sharing those beautiful irises. - a great herald of Spring - and thanks too for your visit. xx Maggie #20

CraftygasheadZo said...

Your poor flower - sun then snow! I spy a 'Sheena' card on the go. I have those stamps and love them and many of Sheena's embossing folders too. Have a good week. Take care Zo xx 76

Neet said...

Those iris are beautiful, and they still are in the snow but I hope the frost etc did not damage them.
Lovely work on your desk and lovely fabric waiting to be used.
Thanks for the visit to my blog and happy WOYWW.
Hugs, Neet xx

Lórien said...

Love both your card on the table and your flower ;)

Samantha Elliott said...

Those irises are gorgeous! I was wondering in the first photo if they were in a greenhouse but obviously not!!
Great desk. I would not dare take a photo that close to mine or you could see the dust! Need to get my Hettie out!!

Samantha Elliott said...

PS forgot to say thanks for the bottle caps!

April Story said...

Awww - your flowers are lovely - even in the snow. Looks like you have some sewing to do there.

Shoshi said...

Great stuff on your desk this week, Lisa. I love the colours of those H2O's - I've been thinking of getting some for a while. Amazing photos of the flower, before and after snow!

Thanks for your lovely comment and your good wishes for our forthcoming house move. Loads to do but hopefully it will all get done in time!

Happy belated WOYWW,

Finally catching up with some desks and repaying visits as I've been out all day to the Hobbycrafts show in Manchester , spending again.

Lots of patchwork fabric and I met up with Jozart's, Redanne and Lynne (doodlybirds) which was fun.
Love your iris photos and those tiny ones are always very early. Also love the gold e,bossed iris in your later post - very arty and effective.

Di said...

JoZart said...

Amazing pics of your snow irises and I spy some gorgeous fabric there too. Woo hoo!! look forward to the results but no pressure!
I'll have a couple of Yorkshire mixture... even though I do like chocky I love the old fashioned sweeties.
love jo x

Darnell J Knauss said...

Oh, Lisa, your iris flowers are so amazing! The poor ladies with their dainty feet in the snow, so sad, but the color is just fab against the white of the snow!

Have fun making your wee quilt for such a great cause! And thanks for coming by the Playhouse already, and for the choccy!! Have a wonderful week if I don't see you before! Darnell #47

Tamika said...

Such a lovely card, Tamika #126

Anne said...

Lovely fabrics and I have seen some lovely cards on your blog. Thanks for popping over to see me. Sorry I am so late. Anne x @ 89

Elizabeth said...

Hi Lisa, you're going to be busy with that fabric - I'm still trying to get to grips with the sewing machine from hell - it hates me! The iris look beautiful in the snow - such cheerful little flowers. I love the touch of orange against the blue - nature does colour composition so well :)) Elizabeth x #55
