WOYWW #194

 First post since last week- the week sort of got away from me, lol. Valentines day,for one, and then helping youngest son find & fetch another car. He had someone hit the back of his car a couple of weeks ago while he was on his way to work .Spun his car round and into the barrier, he was on the M42. Fortunately, he works nights, and its not as busy as it would have been during the day. Apart from being shaken up, he was ok, but it turned out the car was a write -off.

  Just grateful that he was ok, it could have been a lot worse.The lady in the car closest to him saw what happened & stopped to help, and fortuitously  she was a nurse- unfortunately, the same spirit wasn't in the person who hit him, as they didn't stop.
 But he's got another one now, the same sort & colour too. So doing that took up Thursday & Friday, then Saturday we took my Mom to put flowers on my youngest brothers grave, as it would be his birthday this week, and finally an engagement party on Saturday evening- the work colleague I made the Engagement card for a few weeks ago. Sunday morning I had booked ( like Beloved Hubby), for a hangover, lol! Amazingly, I didn't wake up with one, which sort of confused me :).Anyway, this post is getting away from me too now, so why are we here? WOYWW, of course, hosted as ever by our marvellous Julia at The Stamping Ground.
My desk for this week, then. On the way back from my Moms, in Droitwich, we called in at Webbs Garden Centre in Wychbold, where they have a Hobbycrafts. The three wooden words are a very thin plywood as opposed to the usual MDF,- the DREAM word is 81/2" long, and they are very light, you would even be able to attch these to a canvas. Hmm, now theres a thought! They have a lot of other words too. Best part? £1 each!
 A little bag of  plywood alphabet tags fell in the basket too. The other bits are some black & white flowers I've just made, sitting for the glue to dry, and with the black & white card & paper are for a wedding card. I'm on afternoons this week, so I shall be able to join up earlier- have a great week.

Love your words it looks a wonderful project :0)
Happy WOYWW Heather # 72

Redanne said...

Oh my goodness, so good to hear that your Son is OK, much better that the car was hurt rather than him - how awful to cause an accident though and not stop! It does make you wonder.

Hope you get some crafty time soon. Have a happy WOYWW, Anne x #37

Glad to know your son is ok. Love the plywood words and I think they will lend themselves to a canvas beautifully.

Spyder said...

Ohooo dear, not nice having a prang! Some one took the bumper off my daughters car, she was stopped, but some how the insurers say it's her fault! I have those die cuts coloured and glittered somewhere, have to hunt them out! Thank you for my snoop around your crafty corner. HaPpY WoYwW!

Elizabeth said...

So glad your son came out of that wreck in one piece and is okay ... hope the wretch that hit and run is having sleepless nights at the very least!!! Love the words and the price - those I have seen have been bigger and pricier. Have a happy WOYWW. Elizabeth x #58

Kim said...

OO Webbs of Wychbold - that's not too far from me. Those plywood words are great for £1 each. Look forward to seeing what you make with them. Glad your son is ok - my daughter had a similar experience last year and it puts years on you!! K x

Fandhmum said...

Pleased your son is ok, Shaz.

Have a good week and happy WOYWW

Winnie said...

So glad your son wasn't hurt and that someone was there to assist him. I don't know what is wrong with people to hit and run and leave the scene instead of offering help. Your flowers are lovely, can't wait to see what you do with them. Loving the thin wooden words. I bet you can get a lot of use from them without the extra weight. Have a great week! Thanks for the visit! Winnie#93

Lindsay Weirich said...

I am glad your son did not get hurt, scary! Can't wait to see what you make with the words on your desk! Happy WOYWW! Lindsay #115

Neet said...

So sorry to hear about your son, glad he was ok though and that is the main thing.
Those words look nice, sometimes it is good to have the a bit thinner.
Thanks for visiting me earlier, have a good day/week.
Hugs, Neet 11 xx

Debs Willis said...

Hi Shax, so glad your son is ok - it's really scary even if you're not hurt.

Ooooh - more words to decorate - I can feel a trip to hobbycraft coming on loL!

Happy WOYWW, thanks for visiting

Lunch Lady Jan said...

It makes your blood run cold when something like that happens to your son...brrrrr, shivers....am glad he was ok though.
I love the way things just leapt into your basket in Hobbycraft! Do you think they make special magnetised baskets that magically attract things to them ;) I only ask because I think I've carried around baskets like that myself once of twice...or maybe more .....
Are you any good at computer techno stuff (I'm pants) because I think we need a No Pinners button for the sidebar of our blogs and for any other rebel sewist who cares to join our renegade little band of sewing anarchists!! Lol! Please say you can... :)
Hugs, LLJ 38 xxxx

Angelfish said...

Ooh love those wooden words. Very nice.

Krisha said...

Having two sons, I know how cold your blood can turn when something like this happens. Glad he was not hurt.
Great finds, I'd like to have some of those words, such possiblities.

Almo said...

Hi Shaz, Gosh that annoys me when someone just drives off with no thought for the damage they have caused, so glad your son was ok. Looking forward to seeing your words made up hope you have a much more relaxed week. Hugs Mo x

Maisie Moonshine said...

What a week - glad your son is unhurt but I'll be he'll be a bit nervous for a while. Mr Moonshine and I were at Webbs on Monday but I managed to avoid sneaking in to Hobbycraft - bit of a miracle really! Looking forward to seeing what you create with your goodies. Hope you have a better week. MM x #101

Ria Gall said...

so glad your son was ok looking at the pictures of the car you would have thought it was a different story. How can you cause an accident like that and drive away, beyond me
As for those words they are lovely I need to have a trip to hobby craft but it's a bit of a way from me
Wishing you a really great WOYWW

Caro said...

Your poor son...so glad that he was OK. I love the look of your desk today and the gorgeous words. Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW. Caro x #65

Annie said...

Really glad your son was ok in his accident....my son did exactly the same after his night's work just before Christmas and thankfully he was ok too. It's such a worrying time isn't it?

Alison Scott said...

So glad your boy escaped the accident.
Love your desk. Those words are fab.

MaggieC said...

Mikey's car certainly looks very much the worse for wear. Better the car than him, though. Tell Doug not to worry too much about H&S - the stuff on the very top is also very light, so it won't do too much harm if it gets blown off. You are lucky getting over to Hobbycraft. I shall have to wait for next week at least. Then I can finish sorting the stamps into their own boxes. Still keeping our fingers crossed for Christmas at the weekend, they did mention snow flurries today. Glad we've got heated seats to snuggle into. See you soon. xx Maggie

pearshapedcrafting said...

Thank goodness your son is ok and it's just the car! Don't know what it is with Hobbycraft shops but they seem to stock loads of things you don't really need but seem to end up back on the old work desk! Have fun, Chris141

Suzanne said...

So glad your son is OK, horrible that the other person didn't stop. I found some great value bits when I visited the new Hobbycraft near us, trouble is when I got to the till it all mounted up to quite a lot! I hope you're having a better week. X

Anonymous said...

Hi! Thanks for the warm welcome to WOYWW :) I'm glad your son is ok after his ordeal. Those words are very cute, and only a £1? I feel a trip to hobbycraft coming on!

fairy thoughts said...

What a horrible thing to happen tp your son, I hope you got the other persons details, although i guess it is the last thing you think of at the time.
Have fun with your words... funny how stuff seems to jump into your basket isn't it?

Samantha Elliott said...

Glad your son is OK if a little shaken!
Great words there and those flowers look pretty!

Anonymous said...

So sorry to hear of your son's nasty accident and the wretch that hit and drove away who possible didn't have any insurance! Hope the boys in blue catch him sometime soon.
Love those words and a fab price too. I love Webbs of Wychbold although it has been a long time since I was last there.
Looking forward to seeing your completed wedding card and like the look of those flowers too :)
Lynn xx

Robin Spitzer said...

Hi Shaz! Thank goodness your son is ok! What a blessing! I had to laugh when you said it "fell into your basket".....funny how we go after one thing and bring home more....

Next time, I am telling my hubbie, it "fell into my basket" LOL

Thanks for the visit!


Meihsia Liu said...

So sorry to hear that accident and glad your son is ok, Shaz. What a fun project you're having on your work desk. Thank you for sharing.... :)

Hi Shaz,

Glad your son is o.k. Shame on the hit and run driver though. Karma will make it's way around.

Peace, Kay #2

okienurse said...

sorry to hear about your son's mishap and that he wasn't injured...same thing happened to my sister in law a few years back and she had to go through treatment for whiplash. Luckily the hit and run driver was apprehended! I haven't seen the lighter weight words around here but then I haven't been looking. Going out tomorrow so will look then. Thanks for visiting my desk and leaving love! Vickie 328
