Morning dear WOYWW friends. I hope you are keeping well this Wednesday morning. It's certainly been a wild week of weather here in Yorkshire, but today, although windy seems a little drier thank goodness.

Here's my desk yesterday afternoon. It was only about 2.30pm but I needed to have the light on it was such a dismal day.

I'm starting to make some Christmas presents, well it has to be done doesn't it?!! I made some coasters a while a go as a DT sample and had so many comments about them I decided to make them as presents so I'm just starting to cover some coasters I bought recently ready for painting.

This is what they should look like once finished.

Now back to the wild weather. We live not far from the River Wharfe which is usually very pretty but this is what it looked like on Sunday morning.

I had walked down the path that normally runs along that fence in the top photo the day before, but would need a snorkel on Sunday. Thankfully, it's all back to normal now although DD got a day off school on Monday as the road to the school was still flooded on Sunday night.

I hope where ever you are you are safe and sound and if you want to share your desk with us then pop over to see the lovely Julia, HERE.

Enjoy your Wednesday and Happy Crafting!

Lovely samples! I admire anyone who can paint like that - mine would look far too blob-like, I'm sure :)

not late, for a change!

Happy WOYWW. Those coasters are gorgeous - they look so professional. Thankfully, no flooding here - but I have not seen the news yet to see how the coast (which is about 4 miles from us) fared. I want spring to come already. Ali x #36

Fabulous coaster, lovely images and love the subtle colours.
To be honest if I joined in the WOYWDW I wouldn't dare show mine today.

We've not experienced the rainfall in such quantity..yesterday was bright and cheery most of the day, but today is wet and dreary, so I guess its moved south on its journey. Its the lack of decent like that I hate most! Love the coasters, they will make fab gifts.
