Boxes ticked. Boxes packed.

Hi there!
Thanks for popping in.
No step by step today, I’m afraid.

Have done enough for one day, finishing up the TV prep in readiness for tomorrow and the day after.
And the ol’ neck is starting to twitch, 
so that tells me it’s time to stop.
Here’s a little pic of one of my faves...

Jayne Nestorenko’s Winter Scene Stamps


To be honest, the stamping demos are a piece of cake compared to the parchment for me! But hey ho, we like a challenge!
When it comes to Groovi, I seem to spend more time looking for 
or making a fitting background for the artwork 
than I do on the actual parchment!
Mmm... the solution just came to me.
Watch this space....

Well, I’m as ready as I’ll ever be. 
I totally understand if you don’t watch all the hours;
That would be such a lot of time!
3 hours on Sunday and 4 hours on Monday ?!?!
That’s crazy. 

Now if I was showing Poldark how to get in the groove, so to speak, I reckon that could be worth watching....
(the mind boggles). We all know he can hold a scythe, 
but can he handle a huge ball tool ???

No. Believe me. I won’t be offended if you don’t watch all 7 hours.
But if none of you watch for none hours - then I will be gutted.
So please sort it out among yourselves, and just make sure there’s somebody for me to sing to!

  1. Hi Barbara - stunning sample, and no doubt many more to be seen on tv! I can't watch unfortunately, but I know a lot of people who will be watching ALL of the hours, as I would if I was at home. Hope all goes well for you - hugs Gilly x

    1. Hi to all of my lovely blog friends! I hope that you are all as well as can be - sorry for being awol, but Neill and I are in our little Spanish home at the moment, enjoying some much needed sunshine, warmth and rest! I decorated the Christmas tree yesterday morning and then went to sit on the terrace to enjoy a cup of tea and a cake - it was 21 degrees! I was wearing cut off trousers and a T-shirt - it felt totally surreal! Lovely though! Enjoy the shows all of you! Lots of love and hugs, Gilly xxx

  6. Hi Barbara, love your sample, especially how you've molded the stamp to mirror the bauble shape. Couldn't do that with a rubber stamp eh! Don't worry I'll be watching ALL your shows live (providing nothing else goes wrong either day!)
    and recording too. And I'm sure loads of others will be too. Hope you've enough time for your neck to recover before tomorrow. Have a lovely evening. Love Brenda xx

  7. I will watch the shows live on Monday and catch up with the others as I am working all day Sunday.
    I am happy tonight as I am just home after a long day to find my big box of happy post has come today. It was so much fun finding what I had ordered in the box as I had forgotten what I ordered! Can't wait to play with all my new things.

  14. Will be watching some, but recording all the shows, just in case I get interrupted. Busy day today - fed the Christmas cake with sherry, baked a loaf and 2 dozen shortbread biscuits and the curry for dinner is in the slow cooker, and we have guests in this weekend, so I've been cleaning too. Inky fingers again tomorrow though, I hope! x

  15. I will be watching as much as I can. Pre-booked tomorrow pm to go and help Guy clean his house ready to hand over to new owners at end of week. I know how to enjoy a Sunday afternoon.

  18. That's just what I said Barbara, takes me more time to find what to match it up with, where I've put what I want and then to set to to do it ! I'll be glad to hear what great plan you have for that ! I shall be watching, possibly not all of it as I'll be out to lunch on Monday with my girls from work (how did I fit that in!). I will be recording though ! Have a great day tomorrow xx

  19. Gorgeous sample,will be recording all shows and watching as much as possible.Tomorrow I am going to do sausage rolls,mince pies,meat patties,pigs in blankets and stuffing for the freezer so I can cross them all off my list. I hate having to do things last minute because I start to panic and don't know what to do first. However the TV will be on in the kitchen xx

    I'm sure we will be watching tomorrow as we start the mamouth Christmas card writing task! I will record the shows too just in case I've got my ironing ready for Monday so that's sorted too with a walk round the block in between shows. Safe journey tomorrow, I can't wait to see what you have in store with us. I'm sat here chuckling at the thought of poldaaaaark and an extra large ball tool!! What are you like!!!

  36. I am really looking forward to the programs and shall watch as many as I can fit in. Usually a grandchildren,s day but I have the day at home as I have a cold and sore throat. I shall still record them as well. I think that you look as though you have been Grooving for years and the designs are so intricate. Amazing. Like Morag I never get tired of watching you.

      Hope today has been good for you. Looking forward to the shows tomorrow but I already know that I'll have to succumb to these goodies. Might have to be just the Groovi for now though. Managed to finish my agapanthus colouring this afternoon, so I'll get Dave to cut me a mount for it so all my friend will have to do is get a frame. Thinking of doing a set of coasters with the plates now. Love and hugs to all Alison xxx

  49. Have set the recorder, I will be ironing for the world record after returning from our cruise so you will be good company while I do it but will have it recorded for future reference. I started doing more Grooving while I was away as I had some time, it was strange that all the waiters were fascinated by the Groove art work and kept coming by to see my efforts. Looking forward to seeing the new stamps especially too
